Hair, hair and no hair

Hmmm, not so sure where that gaudy yellow hair came from.  Playing with the realistic skintones against a more graphic background - Klimtesque perhaps?

This one was lost then found - from last month - the model has very lovely long grey hair which she wears with pride.  We should ask her to let it down next time.

Ben the Buff - A really great muscular and hairless model this Sunday.  He put great heart into his poses, especially the short ones and sometimes it hurt.

Hopefully we will see him again in the future, it was great drawing a bald model and somehow his head just became part of the body, another limb rather than the centre.  I'd like to explore that some more.  This one was deliberately exaggerated for that reason but I think it would have worked better on a different pose.  I also gave the black paper a trial in the daylight to see how I would fare.

My favourite pose of the day, what a trouper keeping that going for the time.  20 or 30 mins I think.

This one was 30 minutes.

Yep, really enjoyed drawing this guy.
