Art Class by MDMartin Art Class by MDMartin
A demon model posing for three wizard students and an instructor in a Life Drawing class.
This is pretty well finished. Now I'll go about changing all the things that I do't particularly like about it. Feel free to offer critisism.

Photoshop and hand drawn scetches were used.

I freakin fell in love with this lol I hope you don't mind I "MDMartin ~" stamped it and made it my background.

There is just so much going on, it's like I'm a new student that just walked into class for the first time!!

SO TRUE. Just got back from a 6 hour night class and headed to another 5 hours tomorrow. I love your mix of the fantastic and mundane!

So my favorite part is the little bat resting on one of the art student's shoulders!

I love the wings.
That, plus the maniacal smile, make it look like she just wants to grab you and pull you in.

OMG!! Gotta love the deteils, the expressions, the poses, the very creative concept... everything!!
But I especially love the demon's smile... it's just terribly mesmerizing! :D

Gorgeous, I spent a few minutes just looking at all the little details.

Its like a defense against the dark arts class.

Looks great.

o.o Wow....All the detail you put into this picture is crazy is utterly magnificent, I love it. The Demon is beautifully done, I love her eyes, and her wings. I also like the familars, on the shoulder of the middle student, is that a bat? It's cute. XD And so is the cat. The female student looks a little board, I wonder why? XD And I like how the teacher is poking at her wing and stuff. *applauds* Beautiful.

Nice work
Verwildert Featured By Owner May 21, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That is so awesome. The colour and the detail alone make the picture, but there's just so much life and personality in it as well. Really excellent... and that cheesy grin on her face just makes me laugh.
IceyArticuno Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2006
Absolutely incredible job and mildly humorous as well. Lovely detail and style, great job!

hi i was wondering if i could use your pic as a base or simply use the pose cause im only just learing to draw. so may i plz have your permission.if you allow me to use the pic as a base or pose giude then i will remember to give credit to you. if you dont wish to allow me to use your picture as a base or a pose giude then could you plz leave me some tips on drawing any type of fantasy animals or anime or medievil style clothing thank you
ps. i luv the cheesey grin!
MDMartin Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2006
Sure, You can use it as a pose guide... Um... But I wouldn't use my stuff as an anatomy guide. I'm always finding things that aren't quite right. Try to double check your stuff against one of those "anatomy for artists" books. Of course the best guide would be to get somebody to attempt the pose and then draw them from life. You may have better luck getting people to pose for you than I do. :)

imagination of lots!!!beautiful!
Indylicious Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2006  Professional Traditional Artist
I really like this piece. Its neat to see an artist's illustration of an art class. I also like the slightly exagerated style of the human figures, especially the boys, it reminds me of Normal Rockwell's work.
The Demon posing as a Life Drawing Class model is a really interesting, it brings out the fact that in this world,demons are commanplace, as are of course, wizards.
It is an all-around great piece, congratulations, you r-a-w-k.

Oh wow....I now see the full scope of your Nude Muse...this is amazing! Your work is beyond genius! Very much The Hobbit...ya know...the old animated movie they made before the whole The Lord of the Rings phenomenon!! I remember seeing that animated movie as a child...and as a was the most mystical and amazig thing I'd seen...this piece and your others take me back to that. Masterful!!
stull Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2005
you know. that is exactly what I imagine a demon would look like xD Lovely work. She has such an adorable face yet you can see the evil there. Awesome <3

Flaws? I see none. This is a wonderful concept. I wish I was in that class!
s0fus-snk Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2005
i really like this picture. i've seen it before, not sure if i have commented on it though. Like the way how you made her wings sort of an extention of the collar bones. I must say, it's the cutest demon i've ever seen :D

This--this is the reason i watch you--you have such skill! skouwee. great work
lockstock Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2005
That's delightful! I love the facial expression on the lovely model, and the look of concentration on the redhead. The instructor is adorable. Is he modelled off of someone you know?
Great composition, especially the artist front and center with his paper held sideways. His hand positions are spot-on. Very real.
Aoede Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2005
Ha ha! It's great. Wonderful idea. Your works are SO original. That's what makes them so brilliant ^.^
