Life drawing at UC Berkeley

After way too long without a regular life drawing session to go to, I finally found out about the drop-in sessions at UC Berkeley on Fridays and Saturdays. I hadn't really done any figure drawing since the Gallery Girls session in September, so it took me a while to get in the groove. It didn't help that the model was doing all kinds of crazy contorted, and lying poses. The lying pose tends to be the bane of a lot of artists I know, including myself. It really takes you out of the standing figure comfort zone.

Here's a pinup girl I've been working on for a friend of mine. He wanted something similar to one you might find on the side of a WWII era plane. He asked me if I could do a cute girl, riding a bomb, with a beer. Sounded like fun, and not something I normally do. I ended up spending a lot longer on it than I first intended, but I'm pretty happy with the end result.
