Marty Detritus

Sorry I've been M.I.A. so long. Did some life drawing in the class that followed mine. 1 hour pose. Hadn't done the old Ritmo-style tonal drawing in years and years...professor had an interesting practice of turning off all the room lights except for a few dim overhead cans, then blasting light on the model. Made it hard as hell to see, but an interesting way to do values.

Loved this head I did for the class...used a Tombow brushpen. Added some supermodels to make my point about comparative proportions.

I'm not a huge fa of the Tombow brushpen, but it makes such clear marks on the page it seems like the best option for showing the students how I work when drawing in front of the class.

I am keeping my head above water--just. Thankful for the gig. And the students on the whole do seem to be learning. So my conscience is clear.

You still got it Marty. I'm going to share that Skull jpg. I already shared it once , just the skull image. The extra notes are great.
