Self Portraits

We were assigned two self portraits- one conveying some type of strong emotional element and the other being as visually representative as possible.

Drawing of Desi

Another friend of mine who modeled for the class. The assignment was to complete a drawing in 20 minutes.

Figure Drawings of Paul

These are drawings of Paul done in the figure drawing class at Bakersfield College.
Paul is a dear friend whom i trained as a figure model and recommended to the instructor.

First, my very first compressed charcoal drawing.

This was a difficult pose that i managed to make work- and was one of the pieces i chose to represent my work for finals presentations.

A difficult pose for Paul which he maintained for more than 20 minutes.

Here's one in pencil.

And another that my teacher rather liked.
