Week 2: Gestures and Exaggeration

The extended ASC meeting has been pushed back, so the Weeklies resumed. 

This week's theme was gestures and exaggeration.  
Jinny Hinkle brought in Force: Character Design from Life Drawing by Michael Matisse
 and Drawn to Life Volume 2 by Walt Stanchfield for inspiration!

We used The Drawing Script as reference, and began with 60 second figure gestures.
From there, we moved onto 30 second gestures and animals.
Here are some sketches by our members:

-See you next week!

The Sketching Begins...

This past Friday was our first day back to regular ASC/Weeklies meetings.
The Weeklies is a small group of dedicated sketchers from the ASC.
Jinny Hinkle (Art Director of the ASC) is leading the Weeklies with help from
Emma Pennington and Hillary Hastings, who will also be posting on this blog.

This week's theme was dragons. Renée Taylor brought in a book on dragons
and we passed it around for inspiration. We had a lot of fun!

Here are some sketches by the Weeklies members:

Weeklies will not be meeting next Friday (Jan. 25th)
because of an extended ASC meeting.
We will resume the Friday after that  (Feb. 1st) with a new theme and more drawing!
