During the last few years I’ve been practicing anatomy by attending live drawing classes. And although I made hundreds of sketches, I never really came around to actually make a more refined illustration of a just a model. I think i’ts because I have the strong urge to mix everything up with all kinds of fantasy costumes/designs etc. Anyway, I tried to avoid that this time, so here are some simple nude-illustrations. Enjoy!
I’ve worked on over 40 different projects in the last few years and lately I felt the need to collect all that work in a presentable way. So I made this very old-school paper artbook! Here’s an impression of the book and it’s contents:
The book contains 216 pages, and all projects have a short introduction and some comments. It contains comic work, animation work, concept art, game art, live-model drawings and roleplay art.
-PS. Sorry, it’s just one copy, so it’s not for sale!
Hey! These are a few of the sketches I made during our Sketch Sessions and during other live drawing sessions
These are some aquarelles I made for fun. I have a huge stack of sketches from all the live-drawing sessions I do, so I decided to add some color to them. It’s so much faster then PS and it takes me just about an hour to color one of these
These are some colored results from my sketch sessions. Poses vary from 5 to 15 minutes.

Hey! These are my life drawing sketches of last saturday. These were made during my monthly themed sketch-session (this month had a post-apocaliptic theme)- we use models actors & props, so no elements were added to the drawing afterwards. These poses were either 5 or 15 minutes. You can learn more about this sessions here.
Hey! These are my life drawing sketches of last month (4 sessions). Most poses were either 5 or 15 minutes, some were just 1 minute. I added some quick color afterwards. Few of these sketches display props, like an axe. These sketeches were made during my own monthly themed sketch-session (this month had a viking theme).

Recently I started organizing a special figure drawing session in Breda, the Netherlands!
The ‘Sketch Session 2.0 is a model drawing session with an additional theme; and is specifically intended for ‘character artists’.
For example, for a medieval theme the model present would be posing with sword and shield. There will also be an expert present during the session, such as a sword fighting instructor , who explains for example where the shape of a sword and shield actually comes from. In other sessions , there are other experts , such as a pro – cosplayer with Geisha costumes , and reenactor with WWII elite soldier equipment, etc. So you will have a unique opportunity to learn about each topic you like to draw. And of course, this session is an excellent opportunity to see for your fellow artists work!
This is the link to the main page of the ‘Sketch Session 2.0′ ( there click on the ‘info ‘ button for full details ) . Are you interested? Then check the FB-page regularly and sign up for the next session (every 3rd saturday of the month)!
Until then !
I still go to a weekly figure drawing class and these are a few drawings I made there. The drawings on top are based on a model with the intention to draw them as realistic as possible ( the model holds her pose for 10 0r 20 minutes). The drawings below on the other hand, are a second interpretation where I translate them more to my own style. Enjoy
