Life Drawing

Another life drawing I did a week or so ago. I've been using a dark gray nupastel that's a bit too soft for my liking. I've only ever used nupastel with my life drawings and because of that I've never had the full value scale. Everything I've done feels high key so the next stuff I post should be charcoal. I'll put it up even if it sucks.

James Franco

This is a pencil sketch I did today. James was unlikely subject matter for me, not for any other reason than he's good looking. I try not to discriminate and give uglies, hotties, freaks, and frumpies all the same amount of screen time. However, good looking people can be a drag to draw because they all look alike; what with being pressed from the same Hasbro plastic mold. James, however, has some good characteristics so I had a good time and good challenge with it. I have a friend who has worked with James on some films and says he is a real good guy... and then I thought, "Well, I'm a good guy too. So what's stopping us from being friends". I mean, heck, it really isn't a stretch to think that James could see this, call me up, and then fly me out to LA to play some Nintendo Wii and to become his newest BFF.

The other reason I drew James is because he reminds me of my younger brother Mason. Yes, he's that good looking.
