...a little traditional











...A little traditional just for a change, and 2 posts within a week!!! . These were models from my class at the Academy. Long poses, short ones and even shorter than the ones before, 10 secs. That day was a lot of fun, but we ended up exhausted...

Great sketches! Love the traditional medium!

Megan Brain said...

Thank you Nicolas for your kind comment on my blog. Your work is beautiful, loose, stylish and diverse. I love your gesture drawings!

By the way...I also went to The Academy in SF and had Barbara Bradley as a teacher (graduated in 2000). I was in shock after I heard about her death, and her current students really must be in shock. Life can be freaky to say the least. She was a great teacher.
