As previously noted, I have started doing life drawing with a few colleagues once a week during our lunch break. I hadn’t drawn anything since school, so it was reassuring to learn that I hadn’t completely lost it.
A few things I’ve noticed:
1) I tend to draw more quickly than most of the others.
2) I tend to focus more on lines, whereas others go in for more shading.
3) I have an unfortunate tendency to squeeze all the features into a small portion of an overly large head, giving the subjects a certain potato-head quality.
It’s both satisfying and frustrating, as I can see where I’m going wrong, and struggle to put it right…
A couple more examples are up at my flickr account.
