Aw, lookey here– I’m giving youze your update a whole day early! Hee hee!

This week I give you James, another of the workshop’s beautiful models. I’ve drawn him with this crazy multicolored pencil I’ve recently acquired. Have any of you guys seen this thing?! It’s pretty awesome-tastic. It’s one pencil but the lead has 3 different colors randomly infused into it. So, depending on at what angle you draw, the color will change– like mid-stroke! INSANITY!

4 of the 9 drawings are posted here. The rest are in the Members Gallery of my site.

Now, on to James. The one word I think describes him most perfectly is… etherial. His features just look… not of this world. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad thing. It’s a very mysterious and unique look. Like, if we were in Middle-Earth, he’d definitely be an elf. His adorable grin seems to light up a room. You like– picture flowers sprouting where he steps.

James also has a hard, solid, seemingly marble-sculpted body. But somehow, even with all those muscles, he doesn’t come off bulky. Maybe it’s becasue he’s short and the proportions just all seem to fit.
