View Full Version : MEN - Classical Images study
05-02-2011, 12:02 AM
Hi Ho -
While watching special features on the making of Disney's Snow White they commented on how few male forms are represented and hence they had to study up on drawing the prince.
Hum , I don't think I've every drawn a prince either.
So here are a few very famous classical men and some not so famous to practice on this month.
Please have fun and use whatever medium has you currently entranced. And if you have other images to recommend share them too.

Susan, looking forward to see yours.
Robin, it's from a Chinese movie. I haven't watched it yet. Just saw a movie still.
Your sketches have good proportions.
These are all based on Michelangelo's work.
Charcoal stick and vine willow
Progressively, they became more modernized. :lol:

Sandra, what a hive of activity you've been these last few days. Keep it up!

Sandra - nice group of studies....all the faces are different
Lawrence - I like your sense of humor....the determined look and body language is right on target. I like the loose treatment of the surroundings
I hope to get something done tonight.

Great blue boy, Lawrence and sepia boy, Robin. Love to see the different takes everyone has on the same art work. Sandra filling up sketch books, with quick energy sketches.
By the way Sandra, what happened to that sketch book you bought some time ago that had all the beautiful colored sheets in it?
Here is a quick one done on the bottom of the photo copy/
