Drawing Benjamin Part II - 10/17/13

I GOT MY WISH. Benjamin came and posed for us again! No need to reiterate how perfect of a model he is. (You can read it here.)

I can't get enough time with this guy. I'd like to hire him for a new series I'm hoping to start in the next month or so. He's got the perfect physique for the sport-focused images I'm imagining. I'd like to draw them in graphite. It might be a while before you get to see anything, though. I'm going to experiment with mixing my old style with some of the new pen and watercolor work I've recently been doing. It's going to be an exciting project! Stay tuned!

Drawing Magic - 10/03/13

NOW FOR A LITTLE MAGIC! Our model last night was magic. I mean, our model last night was Magic. Magic was his name. Like, legit, his parent's named him Magic. Often models with have "stage" names to protect their identity should they become famous actors or politicians. I was a surprised this was not the case last night. 

He was quite the handsome guy, long, lean, and muscular. I'm sure that his training as a dancer gave him the body. It also gave us the great dramatic poses. He was a pleasure to work with. I hope I get the chance to draw him again.
