The best thing I liked about drawing Lenny was he had awesome hair to draw. Hair on the head. Nice and thick, I like drawing texture with the ball point pen. Nice hair, see?
Plus he brought a couple of props, a tie and vest. For the warm up 3 minute poses he tied the tie around his head like rambo, it was great (but pity it was short I don't get a complete sketch).
Ok and the obvious, his physique was ace, especially when he did a boxing pose for us all which was a great treat, as it was a hard one to hold for 15 minutes and we have never had a model do that pose before.
My fellow sketcher Jane told us she asked a female model once if she could do a boxing pose and the model replied "I don't do fighting poses, I'm a lady" or something to that effect. We all found that quite funny. And fair enough I guess, each model has their own style.
I think this Lenny guy did some kind of martial arts... you know I used to do kickboxing and ninjukai taijitsu. Kickboxing was great, I loved it, so raw and gritty. Ninja, not so fun, and I didn't enjoy it much at all. But these are stories for another day.
