I miss life drawing. It’s absolutely essential for artists who want to draw/are drawing comic books. I haven’t done any since I started my PGCE, but last week, I made time for it. It was a nice reassurance that I can still draw as well as I used to. It was a really serene atmosphere where I could get down to business.
The session started off with quick 3-5 minute poses, then 10 minutes and finally a 40-minute pose. Scroll down to the best drawing I did of the 40 minute pose. For 7 quid, it was worth it and I love the fact that it’s drop-in, cos my life is unpredictably busy at times.
For more information on Candid Art’s drop-in life drawing classes:
Pentel Smash Mechanical Pencil for Drafting – 0.5 mm – one of the smoothest pencils out there, lightweight and has an excellent grip.
Tombow Mono Zero Eraser Fine – For fine-tuning extra fine details , this is the best eraser I’ve used. Very clean with little smudging. I hate it when rubbing out and the graphite leaves a permanent mark. This doesn’t.
