On my way to Figure Drawing class last night I began wondering just when I would see an artist bust out a PowerBook and a Wacom Drawing Pad. Well that very night about halfway through the session this designer guy does exactly that - he busts out his laptop and drawing pad, fires up some kind of photoshop/paint program and pulls off some kick-ass renderings from the 10-15 minute poses. What the technology enables is amazing- you lay down some finely tuned sem-tranparent layers with out having to mix up anything special. And you can do all of this without having to wait for anything to dry! It was pretty amazing.

Speaking of amazing, the model last night had this figure and pose that were straight out of an Ingres painting.
