The Art of Trent’s World (Again, again)

(This is another summer rerun.  Actually, I’ve posted this twice.  This time, however, I’m going to add a few more pictures to the gallery, almost doubling it.)

It began innocently enough.

Last December (well, December 2013!) I wrote a story about a hiker caught by a blizzard at the top of a New Hampshire mountain. I wanted an illustration. I was away from home and didn’t have any resources beyond a bland version of Windows paint. I spent a few minutes to make a quick B&W computer sketch and put it up.

Faces and Fannies – A Class on Portrait and Figure Drawing

Boy portrait

Warning – This post contains drawings of the nude figure!  If you are at all squeamish about such things, turn back now.  

About eight months ago I posted some examples of drawings I made while taking figure drawing classes.  In the post I talked about what it’s like to take such a class, i.e., that there is nothing at all sexual about it.  Recently I discovered some 18″ x 24″ notebooks from the last class I took, “Faces and Fannies”.  The class was given by children book author Marty Kelly.

I’m not great at portraiture and I enjoy figure drawing so this class was perfect for me.  It worked on a big weakness while inspiring me with my favorite type of drawing.  And I think I did some of my best drawings in this class. Continue reading

The Artwork of Trent’s World (the Blog) – Repost

(Sorry, I’ve been too busy to create a new post today.  Thinking of busy, I’ve also been too busy to make many new drawings.  After I posted this in August the number of new drawings slowed to a trickle.  It’s been months since I’ve put on up.  Soon…)

Figure Drawing and Nude Studies

Censored

Note – despite the silly picture at the top, this post contains a couple of examples of figure drawing (i.e., nudes).

Yesterday I posted a picture of a sketch I made over a decade ago. What I didn’t say in that post was that three pages back there was this study: Continue reading
