Drawings From The Student Bar Part 2

This is the second post of (hopefully) three about the EleHouse drawings what I did. So let's just jump straight into it, yes?

I 'made' a sketchbook for the second load of drawings using newsprint. I think this paper is fucking terrible. You rip holes in it, everything looks like shit on it and you cant remove the yellow tint in photoshop without destroying the line art.

I'm a goddamn idiot for trying.

Also, notice the awesome legless chairs.

This guy was eating a Burger. A lot of people were in fact eating Burgers. On Sundays people just dig Burgers.

Maybe it was because the football was on.

I only think it was the football because I only bought chips and I can't stand football. So obviously it's linked somehow.

I chose to draw my beer after the tutors lambasted someone else who was almost exclusively drawing drinks, for not drawing reflections and stuff.

I know why he didn't. BECAUSE IT'S REALLY BORING.

The first 'semi-digital' image. It looks fairly crap. I like his pose though, it's great.

I was also struggling with the mouth. His expression kept switching between euphoria and unrelenting misery.

I'm not really sure if I like this. I've only uploaded it because someone said he looked 'well fucking shifty'. And also because I need like 50 pictures.

There are so many guys on campus who are like this. They're all emo looking, but they're really cocky wankers.

I think I captured that perfectly.

This guy was sitting next to the one above.

He was either really tired, or really depressed.

Probably both.

An Elephant.

Winnie the Pooh

He was actually watching football, and not some girl on the other side of the page.

But I think that's pretty cool too.

This is probably my favourite picture out of the whole load I've drawn so far.

Pretty much just for her eyes.

This was a big fat nerd that was watching the football too. He looked like he'd be crushed should his team (could have been either) lost.

This is the ceiling in the EleHouse. Sort of, it's not finished, and it took me like an hour.

I think it looks a bit better on screen than on paper.

So that's all the drawings from my second sitting that were worth posting (there were loads of properly sucky ones too).

I would have done more but they called Time at like 5 in the afternoon and pulled down the shutters over the bar. No-one else got served, and I left before the football finished because it was boring me sober.
