Squeeky lifedrawings

The life drawing sessions at Taidehalli started again. Was it the beer in my belly or the sunshine crusted arms of mine after the summer but drawing seemed a bit clunky...

Anyway I was trying to "switch my mental gears" several times during the session. That resulted in quite different looking drawings of the same model (of course the emount of time/pose affects too).

Sometimes I took the more stylized or trying to instill more interpretation. Sometimes I just wanted to take the essential pose and exaggerate that, not worrying about anatomy too much ad even cheating a bit on the direction of the pose.

I feel this kind of switching of "mental gears" is kinda refreshing, a learning curve and hopefully helpful in improving my craft.
