Men Represent - Sketches

First and foremost we apologise for the obvious lack of activity on this Men Represent task. Jonas Fred has continued to lead the way with little support from any of us. Picking up a pencil and a notepad isn't that hard but some how we have let other things take precedence. No more. Steve is off to the seaside to visit the old folks so will have plenty of time to sketch the locals...expect a great deal of sportswear from him but more than likely the local uniform of intimidation and trainers will bore him and he'll take inspiration from the new issue of Arena + Homme instead. Meanwhile EJ is on her way down to the big smoke - no doubt she will be inspired by the abundance of art she will see over her stay in the capital. On Monday we will upload the fruits of our scribbling. We hope you all have great weekends and productive ones.

Please note, you will need the following to sketch effectively (we've packed ours):
Drawing paper
Tracing paper
Pencils (including coloured)
Eraser

An assortment of sketches from What I Saw Today to inspire you this weekend


If you are stuck on how to approach the task, here a selection of useful links:

Looks like I will have to apply some colour to my works as well. hahaaaaaaa

So it's gonna be 'til Monday strikes or if I be somewhat not so productive, a Tuesday would be inevitable.

Now on the way of thinking what to sketch...

I sketch people often, but it is hard to sketch people on the move. I can only do it if they are reasonably still for a while. It might be fun to sketch from the pictures some of facehunters subjects.

giancinephile - Colour is always good but it's not a necessity. We are all for creative licence!
j - The sketches can be of whatever you like. I've taken inspiration from Arena Homme +.
