5th entry for Aug 1, 2010

Below are two 5-minute and above three 10-minute poses. C- is a model who I had not drawn before. In the partial figure with arms crossed, she was trying to look stern. I didn't know that while drawing, and was debating about softening the set of her mouth, but felt it better to stay true to the expression I was seeing.

Which speaks a bit about my assumptions, that people would want to be depicted in the spectrum from calm to happy, but not in `negative' states like anger or unhappiness. ( though melancholy holds a place of poignancy in my mind, and thus okay to depict someone as such). A bite for thought, that.
