Figure drawing

Pastel drawing I did today, reminded me of a Francis Bacon painting :~)

The Cure Show

This is a piece I made for The Cure Show happening in Grand Rapids during Art Prize. Hopefully I get in! Of course I wanted to use candy, commenting on the sickly sweet love songs The Cure put out which were most of their chart toppers. Robert Smith is either doom and gloom or coated in sugar. Still trying to think of a name for this one.

Moon Skull

Practicing the anatomy of a skull from reference. Made it into Sailor Moon for kicks.

Succubus love

More pastel from figure drawing, I completely changed the model pretty much only keeping her lighting and anatomy. The teacher put fairy wings on her but I didn't wanna draw a fairy so this was my solution lol. You can probably tell I was heavily inspired by Morrigan and Warcraft. I have another pastel piece from figure drawing that I'm working on outside of class, I made the model look like a geisha. I'll have pics of it up soon!

Practicing with pastel

Pastel is really hard for me to use but I'm trying to get better. I like how cubist this one turned out. The model was dressed as a pirate but mine looks more like a cowboy.

Some drawings from my summer figure drawing class

6 hours of figure drawing can be bleh...but I like most of what I've done so far.
Couldn't pass up drawing this lady's rainbow socks.
I call this one "Lisa Frank's Body"
My teacher decided to name him Zardoz
