Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday: GaD!

Okay, so this first guy is probably the dirtiest drawing on this whole blog. What can I say? It was Friday, the weather was lovely and I was in a good mood. I hope you guys don't mind.

Even when I tried to draw this guy again I couldn't get his face right. This is based on a photo I found on the net...since I didn't take the photo nor do I know who the guy is I don't feel right posting the photo.

Drawn from memory, this gardener was working on a neighbour's flower bed. I love summer.

What you call "dirty", I call "sexy"...It's all in the eye of the beholder :)
As always, the variety of body types is great. I love them all!

I'm with Fran├žois. Naked or erotic isn't automatically dirty. Embrace it, J -- especially if it corresponds to a good mood!

Thanks for sharing this great stuff. My fave so far may be the guy marked June 18, from the next post down. That armpit hair (and the rest of his hair) just gets to me.

I'll be in the minority and say that guy "Number One" doesn't quite do it for me. It isn't the nudity so much as that the guy looks like a pornstar at work. But variety is the spice of life. And there is plenty of variety here. I particularly like the line work on the Gardener's face.

So how long do these little guys take to draw? Which was the quickest and which took the longest?

I love the sketch of Francois!

Francois - My feelings exactly. I'm trying to cover a variety of preferences with these guys.

Nickel - It's funny, I have to stop myself from drawing body hair on every guy I draw. Not everyone is hairy...unfortunately :)

Javier - Ha ha! I guess I did all right on the first guy because he IS a pornstar at work. Francois Sagat has a blog where he posts photos that I find fantastic. Not always nudes, and not always sexual but always interesting.

Each drawing takes about 15-20 minutes. I try not to erase or re-draw too much which is why anatomy may be a little wonky at times. I think the pornstar was the fastest because I kept the drawing loose and cartoony, and didn't use photo reference (except for his face). The drawing fully based on the photo (#3 of this set) took the longest because I kept trying to correct the drawing. See, using photo reference, for me, is not a time saver.

Mobul Mind - Thanks. I'm happy the likeness was recognizable.
