Life Drawing

Had another of the weekly experimental life classes I'm attending last week. Run by Ian Walton, it's not so concerned with learning anatomy or drawing accurate pictures of the model. It's more about translating what you see into a range of interesting marks and textures, loosening up and getting unexpected results.

With this drawing we were not allowed to erase mistakes, instead to cover them up with layers of masking tape or emulsion paint and to then draw back over that. Turns out charcoal on tape makes for some nice accidental textures...

Danny McBride writes the prequel to the upcoming blockbuster from Universal, Your Highness! Prince Fabious is the pride of his kingdom—his exploits are the stuff of legend. To keep the kingdom of Mourne safe from the vicious wizard Leezar’s minions he will have to slay a rampaging Cyclops, which has already destroyed a village! In the meantime, Prince Thadeous, Fabious’ brother, and royal embarrassment, embarks on a diplomatic mission to the Dwarf Kingdom. All he needs to secure peace with the dwarves is obtain a simple signature. But when Thadeous decides to partake in the Dwarf Kingdom’s kind herb and show them who the life of the party is, he may be the spark that sets off a war and be its first casualty!
• These stories lead directly up to the events at the beginning of Your Highness, the movie!
• From the extraordinarily funny minds of Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down) and Jeff Fradley (The Foot Fist Way)!
