Travel & Promenade Sketches
Instead of going to figure drawing this Tuesday, I did quick drawings out on the promenade, and sketched as a class show went on at the Westside Comedy Theater.
Gave this guy a couple dollars, then sketched while listening to him play for forty minutes. A lot of that time was spent drawing him. The good drawing I left in his tip jar. It was a nice sketchbook page-good lettering, fun arc, fantastic linework. Not like the quickie terrible drawing I'm posting here. You'll just have to take my word on it.
Drawing members of the show I watched. Two good class shows. Knew a good amount of people in both groups.
I guess there were a couple people peaking over my back while sketching at the show. I was happy with how the quick sketches came out.
First sketch when I got to the promenade-old guy that leaned against the tree nearly the entire time I sat there.
Trying to get better at the rib cage-getting the shape and volume of it is helping immensely with proportions of the torso.

More torso joy.
more wedding doodles
more of the same
This sketch was a breakthrough piece for me. It didn't turn out all that well, but I understood the fundamentals of placing multiple people in a room, and if given enough time knew exactly how to refine it. This was built out from the background to the foreground, closer to how I'm supposed to draw scenes.
