    Model Sketches: figure drawings and fanart

    Abby Winters has been a one of a kind site. The artists here add a human expression to their performance and camera work showing it off like a diary entry or a slice of life.
    The models are very appealing characters expressed through their body language and even vocally in interviews.
    The camera work does well some cases to complement their performance.

    I'd like to show my appreciation by sharing some of these drawings on this board.
    Cartoony caricatures and several attempts to understand form figure.
    I guess you can call it fanart. If there is a forum topic for fan art already up, I'd love to see it.

    Come join me on this expeditions as I learn from these artists my pieces based from their work, improving along the way.

    This first set is of the model known as Manuela, I actually find this site while looking for the source of her photos.

    Hey bboston, I liked your Manuela sketches.
    Kylie H, with her beautiful smile and glasses might be another good choice for an abbygirl caricature.

    Wow, wonderful caricatures. For now I have thumbnails. I'll see about practicing further with these models.

    So I tried playing with Kylie a bit more. her hair and glasses and smile are fun. Not sure if I got far with it. But she's fun.

    I may have spent more time playing with toon versions than the actual image. I'll look into more images.

    I decided to try something. Ornella was another model that stood out to me. When I first visited. When I would usually find girls I had something in common with for sake of nepotism, I still had a weakness for tall girls. I claim it's natural cause I'm a short guy.

    I decided to give her poses a try digitally.

    Lovely!!
    I've had a couple of pieces of fan art sent to me. It always feels like a nudge on my ego when people take the time to make such beautiful pieces of artwork of me.
    Sooo, if anyone ever wanted to "do me" feel free

    Sure lots of people would want to "do you" Lea... But maybe lack the artistic talent to be able to complete the task to everyones satisfaction

    Unfortunately no idea, I'm an ideas man with no artistic talent at all, So I just came up with the concept and a dude in Thailand did the actual artwork. (although... they didn't follow instructions that well, Poppy was suppose to have been in Gaz's basket).

    Yeah, these are very nice sketches. Love it.
    I can imagine that it would be nice to be chosen and get one.
    Love Sabrina

    Fealt like I should give it a try. I'm realizing a few flaws in this interpretation though. Made an arm too long and it's covering the silhouette of your back. Foreshortening was fun though.

    Here's an image of Grisel. I couldn't help but to check out one of her shoots after her cameo in Ornella's video.

    Her pose influences a more stylized approach featuring straighter lines with a straight forward yet dynamic shape.

    I can't help but see the number seven.

    I found a pretty good image of Kissa, I think she had experience as a fashion model. The kind of elegance in her poses is a pretty compelling proof to that argument.
    Also I've been feeling like nepotism and this looked like pretty good back reference.

    I'm trying my hand at R_Renae again, the more I work on this image the more I appreciate things that I wouldn't expect. In this case here bed sheets.

    She has this shiny magenta (magenta?) sheet with wrinkles that curve like mountainsides and it's material shines quite a contrast between the light hitting it and the shadow it cast. It's really interesting working around where her hand is planted and seeing how her bed conforms to her form even a little bit... that's when I decided to draw the whole room.

    I did had to make up a few things where the official image was cut and I'm afraid I made her shorter in this version than the official.

    Still learning though. The scan may not have done it justice.

    I could have sworn I replied to this thread earlier but it seems like not... Either way, ERMAGERD LOOK IT's ME! YOU DREW A PICTURE OF ME! I LOVE IT SO HARD!

    I really like having pictures drawn of me. It's so flattering/interesting to see what parts of you people choose to highlight (because with a drawing you can see all the bits that drew their eye and they chose to put into the paper). I should totally ask the local art school if they're in need of any nude models, they can pay me in sketches.

    I know from first hand experience that the artists usually keep those drawings. I'm totally up for the idea though.

    I'm thinking I need to spend a bit more time on a single drawing. I've been learning a lot more when applying things I learn from my weekly figure study sessions to my drawing here. This image I drew of Manuela shows a great improvement. It's different from the small sketches everywhere I've grown so used to drawing.

    How have I not noticed this thread before? That is absolutely brilliant; I love the bike pictures of Kylie H and Masie.

    I was browsing around I found a shoot of Anais. She is super adorable! It feels like she's the kind of girl I draw very often.

    I decided to do a cool down sketch. Much like a warm up but to close out the day. This time, I feel a need to address my personal interest in Nora. She is a pretty spot on realistic embodiment of my fantasy so I ran with it in this one.
