Pen Life Drawings

Pen Life Drawings

Looking through a load of old art materials, I felt interested in trying to use my spirit pens in this life drawing class; as drawing with them has to be fast and accurate. Using light pressure while marking  the paper, so the ink wouldn’t bleed through.





Life drawing can be helpful for this animation, as getting used to drawing quickly and consistently in the timed poses improves my accuracy.


With the slightly longer poses of  over 5 minutes, I was able to rough out the tone of the model. Often using a base shape, then to outline on top, as well  creating a softer line it also starting to show her as a fuller form. Without over focusing on the detail in the time constraints.
