Designing Characters From The Live Model

I created the drawings below as a demo during my Fundamentals of Color class at Sharon Art Studio, San Francisco. It's a 10 week course where we go through many exercises in color theory and mixing color. I had a live model in this 8th session so the students could use all that they've learned in the use of color to depict the human form. 

I created my demo using Creative Figure Drawing, where I use the live model only as a basis to build from, then using imaginative elements I design fantastical characters. I will have some video footage available soon.
