Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter A female (at last)! figure group last Thursday

There has been a distinct lack of female models at my figure group as I've mentioned before but last Thursday we enjoyed a superb model who really knew how to pose. bethany will berate me for the lack of hands but its all i could manage in the time

First, some one and two minute poses - I've tried to get some sense of the figure rather than generic gesture poses....













5 minutes



10 minutes



10 minutes



15 minutes



The final pose - I stopped at 8 minutes, the poor girl knew she had chosen a very difficult pose and struggles valiantly to hold it for 10...

Solid set. The ones that struggle a bit are the straight-on poses (the so-called "reference' poses). Those are the ones I struggle with too.

Hope you get that model to come back!

Hey- no berating from me! Some fine work here, David!
I particularly like how you have softened the lines and shapes.

Thanks bethany, but I know you like to see hands I do nearly all my work in Conte now and it does soften beautifully, especially the conte sanguine pencils, I love them

.. my post seems to have been deleted. I really liked the shapes here and the shading in the first 10 minute pose.

Thanks Nathan, deletion was perhaps a server glitch? That one was my favourite too

Re: A female (at last)! figure group last Thursday

Female models seem to be a bit of a rarity in you part of the world David... you have made the most of it here I won't berate you for lack of hands as I do the same thing too maybe just a suggestion with some of the shorter poses, and a bit more of a determined effort with the longer ones.

Nice Work!

Mac
