Blogtoberfest starts today!

Following my blog-mentor (not to be confused with tormentor!) Sarah's good example in 2011, I'm joining in Blogtoberfest. The basic idea is that you write a blog post every single day in October. For more information about it, click on the sidebar button. The plan is that this will force me into drawing at least one thing every day. How difficult can that be.....?

Fortunately, for the first few posts I can rely on my backlog of pictures from my 'Body in motion' life drawing course. In these examples the model did a relatively simple, large movement (e.g. rotating her arm) over and over again. We were to try and 'superimpose' images one on top of the other to represent the movement.

  3. Delighted to have you join us for Blogtoberfest12, Alison.
    Your sketches almost look like an animation. They are stunning! Have you ever considered writing a graphic novel?
