Day 162: Another Mannequin Stumbling About

An Awkwardly Stumbling MannequinThursday is figure drawing day and lately at least that seems to mean that we get a visit from my little mannequin friend.  I’ve grown quite accustomed to drawing a picture of him every Thursday.  Maybe one of these weeks I’ll get a little bit more creative or ambitious with my figure drawing practice.  For now though at least I get to practice some life drawing skills while making attempts at a vaguely humanoid figure.  I wonder whether or not my practice with the mannequin will translate over into improved drawings of actual people when I next decide to make the attempt.

As for this particular mannequin drawing, it’s fairly basic again.  I didn’t get much sleep last night or the night before and the chances of my getting any more sleep tonight are slim to none.  I am thoroughly exhausted and my brain function is currently minimal as a result.  I feel a bit like this mannequin looks actually.

Don’t ask me what he’s doing.  I tried to pose him, really I did.  I even tried to get all artsy and put him into an interesting and expressive pose.  He was having none of that.  This was all I could get out of him.  He’s so difficult.  Last time I was in an art store I saw a mannequin just like him in a really interesting pose.  I can only assume that they used some kind of black magic to get him to do that.  Either that or I got stuck with the stubborn one.
