Pinky Pie! Color!

Rhiannan as Pinkie Pie was our model for last night’s Drink and Draw at AFK Renton.  I had a great time.  The other artists were good company and Rhiannan was a fun model!

No, I did not know the character and yes, I had to search Google.    Seems she is a My Little Pony character.  I certainly appreciated tonight’s model as there was more COLOR!  There has been a lot of black on black or white and black.  It was good to change it up with some brights!

As usual, we started out with 2-5 minute sketches.

We moved on to a little more time, so I added a bit of color with pencil.

Finally, with the 15 minute poses, I brought out the Stillman & Birn Beta Sketchbook and watercolor.

My favorite of the evening, though not so good a facial portrait.

I thought to capture the detritus of the Drink and Draw.  Usually two artists share a small round table.  It gets a little messy.  Emily and I shared this and most of the mess is mine, on the lower half of the table in the image!

Just to show how geeky this place is, here is what’s printed on the bottom of the bill:

    Great, colorful sketches! So cool that you found a way to get back into figure drawing. I really enjoy the traditional kind, but costumed would definitely be more fun.
