Sweeney Todd Skeleton - A Macabb Study

Author Comments

Back in the days of college (2010) learning how to do Computer Aided Drafting, (long story, semi-worked) I took an elective class to fill out the credit load I needed for a Winter Quarter of College. I took my one and only art class in my whole life. Live Figure Drawing. It was addicting and the dirty feel you get from enjoying charcoal dust and forgetting about your life for a while in a studio is sorely missed. The exact dimensions of this piece are hard to judge without digging it out and unrolling it as I've yet to find a good way to archive it. Safe to say it is about two to three pieces of 18 x 24 charcoal grade paper taped together on the back. The purpose of the study from the teacher was to use the scientific skeleton hanging on its stand in the classroom and super impose it over one of the many loose figure sketches we did to learn structure and placement. Needless to say, the woman sitting on the stool I drew a few weeks before fit well and let me do a great back study of the spine. Also, with how it was set, I added the signage at the last for a bit of dark humor. The teacher loved it. It is all charcoal with spray fix between layers. Last I heard from a friend a few quarters later, the teacher was using this picture in her slide to show ghosting techniques used in charcoal media.
