Costumed Sketch Night: Harry Potter Theme

20 Minute Sketch - Sitting Pose20 Minute Seated Sketch of Harry & Draco from last night's sketch night

I was bummed out about several of the local Life Drawing etc. sketch groups seemingly disbanding, and as usual, I took it upon myself to remedy the situation. So, I started a monthly Costumed Sketch Night at the shop where I work.

Anytime I encounter holes in reality where I think things OUGHT TO BE, I have a tendency to try and organize a filling of those holes (local drawing groups, 24 hour comic book day, self-publishing participation in independent comics, etc.). The downside is that this tends to make it impossible for me to participate in the group. Fortunately, Costumed Sketch Night is not one of those occasions, I can draw and time things SIMULTANEOUSLY (and I can always hop in as a backup model in case someone doesn't show). For once, it's kind of good to be the organizer. Shew.

We had at least four artists, and I know a lot of people who are planning to come and draw at the next one, so it's officially a success in my book.

And, as always, a huge thank you to Will and Nick, who were awesome models.

Next Costumed Sketch Night is Wednesday, February 27th - the theme is PIRATES!

Here's the Flickr picture pool of all the pictures from last night - and future pictures!
