life drawing

Stuart doesn't really like posing for drawings, but he said it was okay if I drew him while he took a nap. I would've spent more time on it, but then his head lolled round to the other side, so that was that.

On Friday I went with tozocomic to see Quentin Blake give a talk and slideshow at the Institut Français as part of their Youth Festival. Before the talk, we were browsing in the comics section of their library and I found this book with lovely pencil and tonal work and wanted to try getting the same effect in Photoshop. (Andrew Wildman - of the DFC's Frontier - tipped me off how to do it.)

One more thing, last night I had home-made pasta for the first time ever! I got all excited and took pictures of Skip cranking it out on his shiny cool machine. And here I am modelling just how long the noodles were. Skip says they're not actually that long, that he will make them even longer next time, which is something to think about.

That was kind of him; I won't even let the missus LOOK at me when I'm napping!

I think today he felt sort of guilty about taking a nap in the middle of the day because he thought it would be time-wasting, and when I suggested I draw him napping, it gave him the license he needed... heheh.

Fabulous, you got excited about it, too! :-D

Ah the trusty pasta machine. Used once every five or six years, then back to the back of the cupboard for you.

I think Skip does actually make pasta on a regular basis! But there's no way I'd get one of those machines, it would be just as you say. Speaking of which, I really fancy getting out the waffle maker tomorrow...

Glad I could help.

Thanks so much! I can't believe I didn't know about that Multiply thing.
