In fact, it is a picture of a famous Japanese singer who sang in an all girl pop group named SPEED during the mid to late 90s. Her name is Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. Unfortunately, they disbanded several years ago. I recently found out they are back together and singing as SPEED. Freelance Union Article: 5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination.

Long Overdue Life Drawing Post

Here’s some more life drawing sketches.  The first two are from the previous post’s session. 

I’m really enjoying these life drawing sessions. Drawing from live nude models is taking me out of my comfort zone. In the past, I’ve drawn mostly women in life drawing sessions and when a girl from college agreed to pose for me. In the early nineties, one man had posed in a life drawing class I took on the West Coast in the US but, until recently that was about it for male models. Now, it seems we mostly have male models available. 

I prefer drawing with a ballpoint pen rather than a pencil. That's why I've got so many drawings in that medium.

Believe it not, I actually get bored drawing the nude form. Sometimes, I get to a point where I can’t draw something the way it looks in front of me and I give up. That’s when I have to kick myself the butt and remember why I’m doing this in the first place. I want to give my characters an authentic realism that only comes from drawing from life. And, the following quote comes to mind as well. "Prolific people don’t wait to be moved, they begin the work, and the work moves them to create more." ~ Jonathon Kastner.
