Halloween Date, charcoal on paper

Halloween Date, charcoal on paper

For a pre-Halloween figure drawing session, the model posed with a skeleton as if they were on a date, making small talk on the sofa. While the model and the rest of the group took a lunch break I continued drawing the skeleton, who needed no break and continued posing nicely.

I think we had about an hour and a half on this pose with the model, plus my time with Mr. Skeleton. I wish I’d sketched in a bit of the background so that their funky sofa wasn’t just floating in space.

    • Thanks Sharon for commenting. I’m curious if you were referring to the drawing or the pose or both as “unusual.” And of course you’re right–it’s pretty uncommon to find a naked lady hanging out with a slightly lecherous skeleton!
