My second favorite class of the week at Gage Academy. The model was late today, but that was fine, I was early and a skeleton was there.

Here is the classroom setup with the skeleton and light. Later the model will be on the stand on the right.

20 minute pose again, but for this one I was trying to go as quick and loose as I could. I wanted accuracy, and the whole figure. I was trying to challenge myself.


10 minutes, just a bit of fun at the end.
