Life Drawing at The Tobacco Factory and Some Exciting News!

I've only gone and got myself an interview for the Character Animation course at Aarmdan I was talking about a couple of posts ago! How exciting! I'm also completely crapping myself as the interview is supposed to be 45 minutes long and I just don't know what to expect. 

If anyone has any nuggets of advice of what I should take or what I cant expect, I beg you: please divulge!
In the meantime, here are some of my drawings from Monday's life drawing session:

Life Drawing at the Tobacco Factory

Tonight I finally went along to the Tobacco Factory's Life Drawing session. I've been meaning to go for ages, but it's the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month and other things were keeping me busy so I made sure to dedicate this evening, plan nothing, even swapped my shift at work so I could have the day off rather than work until 9pm so I could attend.

Here are my drawings:
5 minute pose with a contour drawing
5 minute pose
40 minute pose
45 minute pose

I was quite surprised at how well my eyes told my brain to tell my pencil what to do! There were a couple of dodgy feet and hands here and there, but over all I'm pleased with what I came away with tonight. I am especially fond of the back muscles in the last drawing.

Also, on my way home I went to Tesco to have a rummage through the bargain shelf and was so excited to find a pomegranate for 25p! Then someone outside the shop asked if I had change for some food, which I don't hence the bargain shelf rummaging, so I gave her my pomegranate instead... I'm such a fool!
