life drawing + anatomy

Here are some pieces from my life drawing and anatomy classes:

30 min poses
conté & white pastel on newsprint, 18x20"

I found it really difficult to figure out where the muscles were located on the model. But we had a little field trip to the University of Toronto anatomy lab last week, which helped out a lot with visualizing origins and insertions of muscles, as well as the direction of the fibres. It took some getting used to, but I had a good time sketching out specimens there. :)

upper & lower leg muscles (from live model, 30 min each)
conté on newsprint, 18x20"

Everything I want to take at the Toronto School of Art in the Spring/Summer term conflicts with work, any suggestions for alternative art schools in the Toronto area where you can just take a couple courses? ;-;

I haven't been working on my own art too much lately, but here is a quick watercolour doodle I did. It was fun to let loose again and not care about the outcome. I was trying out the whole fat cutesy bird thing again! :)

watercolour on paper, ~11x5.5"

Will post some life drawing/anatomy later? Hard to find ones I'm not too embarassed of. :P
