Drawing Club: Jimmy Page




The Led Zeppelin / Jimmy Page theme last night was pretty awesome. I really enjoyed the poses a lot... and all the hair. I was in a quick draw mood last night. So these are just really fast ink gestures, with a graphite lay in to add some simple shadow shapes for form.

You've caught the subject's essence beautifully. Perfect body gestures. Line work casual, yet controlled. Really really nice.

Primely! Kendra! You work as a mad painter (in good sense)!
I admire your drawings more and more!
:~) SUPERB!

Kendra Melton said...

Thanks Kartika, the music was totally hoppin'

Thanks Charles, have a fun summer break!

Aw thanks Thomas, that was my main goal of the night, to get those slight turns and twists going on in the torso. Subtlety can be quite hard to capture.

Thanks so much ti-igra!

These are brilliant.
Really capture guitarist attitude, but not at all stereotypically somehow. Top stuff.

I'm a huge fan of Led Zeppeling and... Jimmy plays right-handed ;)

But I really like your drawings.
