Costume Sketches for a Movie

These are a few sketches I did for costumes that will be done for a Jordanian feature film called Line Of Sight.
I did these with the help of a few figures chosen from a huge archive of models in different poses on Posemaniacs an invaluable site for artists

ballet dancer sketch #8

I am so excited for this post, it is post #100 on my blog... feels kind of special...
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO IS SO KIND AS TO FOLLOW MY BLOG... or leave a comment, your input really makes me very happy

I discovered Posemaniacs a few months ago, it is a great reference for any position you wish to draw... they have thousands of figures posing in different poses and you can turn them around and sketch away...
I find it particularly useful when I want to draw costume illustrations that look as close to real life as possible...especially that you don´t have a model near by to sketch...
try it and see how much fun it is
 these ballerina sketches  were not done using this link, it was copied from some photos I took some time ago

ballet dancer sketch #7

I feel that focusing on certain subjects to paint, developes my skills and ability to draw,  and discover techniques to suit each subject

My daughter

My daughter is a photogapher, and an artist. This is one of her photos. Grocery shopping in downtown.
She uses a Nikkormat, (Vintage Nikon camera) using film, she uses a 50mm lens, using 100 ISO film. Mostly expired film. I thought I would share it with you. Would appreciate feedback.
