This is Jim, in coloured pencils. For the longer poses, I now have an 11x14 sketch pad with 50 sheets of heavy paper, great for pencils, and it stays in my “Life Drawing” bag. So this one is actually 11x14 but the scanned image is smaller (ie, it’s cropped). Same goes for the one below.
Jim’s gotten good at his job. I remember when he first came in, he seemed hesitant, and his poses were kind of boring. Lot’s of standing and sitting in symmetrical poses. Well, I have no idea how he did it, but he’s a GREAT model now. His warm-up poses (short poses where models do not have to worry about their physical ability to hold the pose) are amazing and dynamic action poses, and very manly. Since we have an abundance of female models, manly is good for contrast.
Here’s Jim doing a nicely dynamic long pose. (again the image is cropped by my scanner; I actually manage to fit everything on the page).
