Gargouille

This week is the IMC. I couldn’t go this year, but I still took time to stop on Place d’Arme and draw this little gargoyle guy on the side of the Maisonneuve monument.

The angle is slightly different on the photo and the drawing. It took me 20-30 minutes. I was straddling the side of the fountain. It was long enough for my right leg to go to sleep.

Goldorak

We had a challenge at work to take a kids drawing and paint it with our today skills. I took one I did when I was 3 of Grandizer. Some things just don’t change.

Nous avions un défi au travail de prendre un dessin d’enfant et de le peindre avec nos capacités d’aujourd’hui. J’ai choisi un Goldorak que j’ai fait quand j’avais 3 ans. Certaines choses ne changes jamais.

Places for life drawing in Montreal

If you are looking for life drawing sessions in Montreal, here are a few suggestions:

Dr.Sketchy, Montreal chapter

With it’s quirky monthly events and costumed models, Dr.Sketchy Montreal has mostly shortish poses in a festive ambiance. Good for unlimbering fingers and having fun, but not for producing very finished and polished pieces.

Game artisans

Now I’ve never been to a GA event, but they look very interesting. They had a shibari event and one with people dressed as urban ninjas or something. They also have art demos. As far as I can tell, they have space to paint and longer poses. They are also geared towards video games but I don’t think it makes much of a difference as far as life drawing is concerned.

Centre Georges Vanier

This is where I used to go when I lived in St-Henri, a nice quiet session with poses from 1 to 20 minutes (at some point they did 45 minutes but some people started shuffling and making noise in the middle so it went down to 20.) They had nude and costumed models but I think they are always nude now.

Studio technique

Never been to this one either, but we have passes at work so I’ll try to go sometime. I don’t know much about them but they have untutored drop in sessions and drawing classes.
