Mastercopy for Michelangelo!

Ever since we started figure drawing, my drawing teacher doesn't give us a lot of homework (bless him)
I mean, while I love drawing with all my heart, painting class has just been giving me so much homework, I am quite overwhelmed!

Anyways, this was one of the homework assignments that my drawing teacher gave us. He is just an amazing man! I really enjoy learning from him.
So the project was to pick three artists from a list and study their figure drawings, and do one master copy.

I picked Michelangelo, Pontormo, and John Singer Sargent.
There were a lot of awesome drawings, but I decided to go for Michelangelo.
We were supposed to find the similar medium too, and I tried to have red spots, because the original had them... but they don't really show much. Aw.

Turns out this is only part 1 of the project!
The part 2 of the project is.... making a piece that is based on the figure, but in our interpretation.
For example, my mind first went to some Greek mythology inspired, Zeus going crazy over some beauty and Hera furious. Maybe I'll go for that one. Maybe I won't.
Who knows! :)
I can't wait til I start it! I just gotta finish this paper first... haha..


  1. So many details! It looks amazing Kate!

    I wonder what you ended up doing for part 2 since this was posted last April. Did you do the Zeus/angry Hera thing in the end?

    1. I did, but I wasn't really happy with the product... but I guess I still should post it haha
