Unexpected Models at Cover Characters Life Drawing

At the last life drawing class something unexpected happened – Our life model failed to arrive. In my many years of taking life drawing classes I have never had this happen.

But rather than cancel, my brave and beautiful friends stepped in to model! As a warm up (and to wait for the model to hopefully arrive) the class drew each other around the room. I attempted to sketch my best friend, Nicole, as she drew me but with us both talking and moving around it was more challenging then expected.

Then my friend Tara volunteered to do short poses for the class (clothed).

By this stage it was clear that the scheduled model was not going to make it to the class, our lovely host Cindy took it upon herself to model for us all.

Thank you my friends, you all were fantastic!

 

 

 

 


Neverwhere – Hunter Character Sketch

Neverwhere_Hunter_Sketch_01

For fun today I thought I would sketch Hunter from Neil Gaiman’s novel Neverwhere dressed in her battle trophies. I have never watch the TV series but I really enjoyed the book.

Fairytale Portrait – Snow White

FairytalePortrait_SnowWhite_01

Fairytale Portrait – Snow White – inspired by the theory that Grimm’s Fairy Tale is based on the life of  Margaretha von Waldeck, a German countess.

I liked the idea of her as real girl, in her own time and dress. And her story has then been woven into a tale that is still being retold today.

 


Jim Henson’s Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Sketch

Labyrinth_01

 

I read to today that it is the 3oth Anniversary of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth <3

It is one of a kind and is possibly the films that has influenced me the most. To celebrate, not only the film, but the amazing people that made it so magical, a did a quick sketch from the ballroom scene.

Covert Characters Life Drawing – Ameena

LifeDrawing_CovertCharacters_Ameena_01

 

When our usual fabulous Cover Characters host Cindy couldn’t take the class last month she asked if I could take over the session with the help of my best friend and art buddy Nicole.

It was my first time teaching a life drawing class but I had a  great and unexpected response from the artist that attended. Hosting the session I wasn’t able to get as much sketching done as I would have liked but I was able to get some quick drawings at the start and through some of the longer poses.

Our beautiful model Ameena was lovely and very understanding of our lack of experience <3

 


Rocky Horror Life Drawing

Earlier this month Covert Characters  had a Rocky Horror themed life drawing night with our very own fabulous Frank N Furter striking beautiful poses.

The very talented Hamish immediately dazzled us with a song and stayed in character for the whole session!


Covert Characters Life Drawing

At the start of this year I discovered  Covert Characters Life Drawing here in Melb and they have be so much fun to attend!

Every class has a very different theme and model.  The session lit by blacklight with glowing body paint was unlike any life drawing I have done to before!

These are a few of my favourite sketches from the last few months – NEON LIFE (Models Sebastian and Brie, Body Artist/s – Dale Proposch (Flutterby Face Painting), Body Artist and Photographer Suedy) , Mr Marmalade and Tahlia Celenn.

 


FCBD 2016 All Star Comics Melbourne – Artist Alley Sketches

These are just a few of the sketches I did as part of All Star Comics Melbourne‘s epic Free Comic Book Day event. I’ve never done any convention sketching before so I didn’t know what really to expect but the variety of requests and people were great!

Thank you to all of the people that stopped by and asking me to draw something. And a very heartfelt thank you to the people of All Star Comics for inviting me and for all of their hard work and organisation that made it a fun afternoon for us artists and the public.

Covert Characters Life Drawing – Lorelle Rogue

After our local Dr. Sketchy’s wrapped up last year I’ve been eager to get back to life drawing. This month I was lucky enough to find a lovely new life drawing group with interesting themed events called Covert Characters.

Our model was Lorelle Rogue, alternative model and aerialist, striking beautiful poses with her silks.
