We had a life drawing teacher back in college that had us do the same thing; not an easy task. I think I recall using mustard? I didn't really have too much success with it.

It looks like you did though! I really like the heads! Nice and graphic. Great!

Matt J said...

Mustard hah! Man, that must've stank? Art school was great for eccentric teachers getting us to draw with mud, coffee, nails, bodily fluids etc. We had one life drawing tutor turn out all the lights & have us draw in the dark! Fun time -

Smook said...

I hope you were kidding about the 'bodily fluids'. Please TELL ME YOU WERE KIDDING MAN!!

Drawing in the dark? Drawing under the table? Don't you ever draw in more, conventional ways?

Matt J said...

Your ARMS look like branches!

Even for a twig I find these images very precise, it shows great control and discipline.

How big is your twiglet?

Matt J said...

Crookie, I used a medium sized twig, 2B. Twiglets smudge too much. Sticky fingers.

Joe, CHEWBLOG rules!

Stef said...

I like those, beautiful weight to the lines,

Matthew Cruickshank said...

It's nice stuff but it's not experimental, I think you knew exactly what would come out of the tip of your little twig.

If you want experimental look at Gerby's Blog.........

Matt J said...

EVERYTHING that Gerby does with his twig is experimental !

these are nice. are you familiar with the work of Bernard Krigsteen?

Matt J said...

Hey John, do you mean Krigstein? Just found him online - he's terrific. Never heard of this dsude before. The site I found is an archive of almost EVERYTHING he ever did. Great find, thanks for the pointer.
