This Wednesday I helped a little in the Costume Portrait day which is an even run by the university's ASEAN Society and Life-drawing society. Check out thier blog.
Its a really fun event where sitters pay to be drawn by student artists. The sitters can wear crazy accessories like wigs,sunglasses, and masks. After the session the drawings can be bought. The blog explains it better than I do.
Anyways, I enjoyed it.
The sitters were very fun to draw- you could see they felt like a rock stars. With ridiculous wigs.
I realized how much I miss Life Drawing, despite being one of the students who help run the society.
I like outdoing myself. Someone reminded me of my rock girl illustrations I did eons ago. It was a spontaneous and pleasant surprise. As I didn’t draw it on the right paper, they didn’t scan well but I might as well show them;
So I'm working on better versions of them.
Along with that there were some old Ancient Egyptian drawings I did.
These were done before Photoshop (those dark days) so I used ArtRage™ which has similar features and interesting tools.
Still working on our film, its looking good. Managed to squeeze some time on Friday for Sofia Cappola’s Marie Antoinette (cupcakes, costumes and cinematography!) while watching it I was sketching and referencing from a book of historical fashion.
These don't represent a specific era (I think) but was a lot of fun to draw.
