Yesterday in our gesture drawing class at Dreamworks we had an exceptional model, Cassandra. Here she is in one of instructor Dave Pimentel's drawings--one of several he's posted over on his sketchblog, Drawings From A Mexican. I came for the second hour only, which was a shame--this girl had the perfect figure and grace for gesture drawing; she used every bit of her form from her hair to the beautiful way she posed her hands and feet. She also wore a costume and her face had a look that suggested a model for one of the pre-raphaelite painters--Rossetti or Burne-Jones. Figure modeling isn't as easy as it looks, by the by, even for 2 or 5 minute poses. I hope dave's able to post more later...if he can wangle some of his classes' work. Everyone did a super job and had a blast.
