Double Figure

This last Fall quarter I worked on a drawing at the Academy of Realist Art that was unlike anything I had done before. It was a drawing of two models at the same time. It was surprisingly easier to block in all of the major proportions and features of these models because there are so many horizontals measurements that match up between the two models. Normally you just have one model standing in front of you and nothing but empty space off in either direction for measurements. If for some reason you artists out there get a chance to draw from two models, don't pass it up.

This drawing was done with carbon pencil on Watercolor paper. The type of paper was 300lb hot pressed if anyone is interested. The reason for this was to keep a fairly smooth texture with just a little bit of grit to it.
