Yesterday, there was a drawing "workshop" if we can call it that way with Jean-Denis, a male model hired frequently by my college. there was no teacher this time, we just drew what we wanted the way we wanted and Jean-Denis chose the poses himself and kept them as long as he was comfortable.

Here are 4 of my sketches (there are 9 in total), done in charcoal, sanguine and white comt crayon on manilla paper. The model kept the poses about 20 minutes so in all there's about an hour and a half worth of work in these 4 sketches (which are about 24''x 18''.)

enjoy!

These are lovely.  You capture the poses wonderfully, and I'm impressed at your ability to use charcoal and conte so effectively - I find them quite difficult to work with.

I really enjoy the gestural feel these have. Good work.

Nice work!! Those look awesome!! I used to model for the life drawing class at a local college.  I loved seeing all the renditions of me when the students were all finished.  It is so much fun!

Have you discovered the wonder that is the conte pencil yet? You can get them in a variety of values and colours. Your local art shop should have them for 3-5 bucks but they're totally worth it. I find having that extra room for my hand gives me way better control over my linework.

crazyda79: thanks! I'd love to try but students are forbidden to pose :p

teddybearbones: I tried them out, I tried also charcoal and sanguine pencils, but I don't like them. they are a pain to sharpen and you can't get as expressive as with a stick, imo. thanks for the suggestion, however!
