Drawing Shadows with Timothy and Tabula Homo

Today I attended a Tabula Homo drawing session, run my the model, Timothy. You may recognize him from my Timothy screen print, or you might not. I feel like I didn’t capture his likeness very consistently this session. But that’s fine cause today we were focusing on shadows. Timothy set up a single light source so we got some really dramatic shadows to draw. I focused on getting those shadows down with bold graphic shapes.


5 minute, 10 minute and 25 minute drawings


Timothy started the session with a lot of quick 1 and 2 minute poses. Here are a few of the gesture drawings I liked from those poses.
