The theme last night was "Suited Up" and that included everything from a regular business suit to period costumes to a child in a cat costume. After the warm up most of the poses were 10 minute poses and when they were double poses I had to focus just on one figure, but I think it's good practice and I'll keep at it.
There is a suggested $3 donation for the evening. People sit around in chairs in a circle while the model(s) is(are) in the center. You can get up and walk around to get a different view if you feel so inclined.
Below are two more sketches from the evening. I did a final pose of a model sprawled on the floor, but I'm saving that for a project I'm working on. All in all I thought it was a very productive evening. If you want some practice sketching people I recommend that you check out this event.
