Fuzzy Nude Woman

Posted on

Sometimes, fuzzy is the way to go. People start seeing things — some of which you intended and some things that the artist wasn’t minding. A fuzzy picture’s like a good short story where the reader finds little epiphanies.

    Are these all live model drawings? I know how difficult live model drawings are and like this one. There is a freedom in the hand.

      None of these are live models, Monsieur Modigliani (big fan, btw). I enjoy life drawing but haven’t had an opportunity to do it in a while. The sessions in my area are incompatible with my work schedule. My life drawings are some of my best work — I work fast and putting me on a timer makes me focus on the most important elements. Also, after drawing a bunch of quick sketches, I’m revving during the longer poses. The freedom/ease comes from a lifetime of drawing. I’ll tell you this, though, I was thinking about the full figure when I was drawing this. I was also thinking about life models. It helps that I can project my own love/passion/feelings on the image(s) that I work from. When I work from the live model, I’m holding a little love affair with the woman I’m drawing — a reason I don’t like drawing from the male model. It’s easier for me to love a living woman, especially one with curves and hair. 🙂

      The lead hodler moved all around, up and down, and round and round a whole bunch of times and many parts were kept intedeterminent on purpose — not really fair to call them vague or undefined. I learned the volume-building technique from Drawing Comics the Marvel Way. I’ve used it in the past when dealing with complex compositions–it lets me arrive at a solution progressively through iterations.

      Glad you enjoy my work — I hope I didn’t ruin it for you. Some people like to think I’m romancing the women I draw.

        Well I draw women for the same reason. I am having a little love affair rhar i impose on them. though to be honest, I don’t get nearly as much practice as quick drawing/sketching. It is an important fundamental skill that really needs to be practiced frequently. Thank you for sharing.
