David Meldrum figure drawing My Life Drawing Sketch

Action Bear!

The model’s real name is Lars but everyone calls him, Action Bear! He’s a body builder and an exhibitionist, he’s full of life and loves posing in impossible positions which no normal model could ever hold. The problem with Lars is that he’s a little over-ambitious and rarely holds the pose, this annoys some of my life drawing comrades but I just find it amusing. It’s difficult drawing a body builder when you have limited time, so many bumps and curves to deal with! I turned him into a comic character, that’s the way I dealt with capturing his body-form.

Yeah, you are rigth, extremely difficult, but you did it. Fantastic sketches.of a quite extreme body.

Thank you setxu! I did not produce so many good drawings that session. He was difficult but also the light at the life drawing venue is poor. Hmmmm, I'm blaming other things besides myself. Not good! 😉
