Bargue Plate: Series I, Plate 6b (part 1)

I decided not to wait until Wednesday to get started on the next drawing. So here’s where I’m at so far:

Bargue Plate 1.6b

Bargue Plate 1.6b.1

I really rushed the lay in on this one and now I’m paying for it. While the right side of the drawing is ok, the left side is completely out of whack with the original. I’ll have to spend a fair amount of time to fix all that before I post part 2 tomorrow.

This is one of those times when it’s actually painful to post what I’ve done.

Here’s the original series 1 plate 6b found in the Charles Bargue and Jean-Léon Gérôme Drawing Course. Like last time, I’ve printed out the original plate as close to actual size of 18″ x 24″ as I can.

Bargue Plate: Series I, Plate 6a (final)

Here’s the final rendition of the series 1 plate 6a found in the Charles Bargue and Jean-Léon Gérôme Drawing Course. I can definitely see where I’m improving. I can also see where I still need to make improvements.

Bargue Plate: Series I, Plate 6a (part 3)

It may not look like it but this represents about another four hours of work since the last post. I’ve been making an effort to take my time with the rendering of the darks. I rushed through it on the last drawing and was pretty disappointed with how it turned out.

Bargue Plate: Series I, Plate 6a (part 2)

I managed to get three hours of work in today so I’m making pretty good progress. For this drawing I switched from using a smooth bristol board to a Strathmore 400 series drawing paper. The extra tooth has made it a little easier to lay down the graphite so I should (hopefully) be able to do a better job of rendering the tones this time around.

Bargue Plate: Series I, Plate 6a (part 1)

Since last weeks efforts to keep me on track by posting what I do each day worked so well I decided to do it again this week. Who knows, if this keeps working for me I may even be able to start my week on a Monday like normal people instead of a Wednesday.

Because there are two different feet on the original plate I’m going to break up the drawing into two different drawings. This is my completed lay in for the foot from the top half of the plate. Of course, as I look at it know it looks like I might have made the heel a little too wide on the right side. I’ll fix it before I move on to the next step.

Bargue Plate: Series I, Plate 5 (final)

Just finished the series 1 plate 5 found in the Charles Bargue and Jean-Léon Gérôme Drawing Course.

Bargue Plate 1.5.5

Bargue Plate 1.5.5

I turned out ok. As usual there are parts I think I did well on and there are other parts that I would like to take a giant eraser to. For me, part of the issue is the fact that I can’t seem to to smooth out the pencil to create the appearance of a solid shadows. I can still see the pencil lines. Of course, part of that may be that I’m trying to get too dark of a value out of my pencil.

Perhaps next time I’ll try charcoal. That should be good for a laugh :)

And the original for reference.
