If you are ever in a bind money wise and really REALLY want to learn figure drawing I would highly suggest going to the mall. You can really learn movement, weight, proportions, etc. and best of all it is FREE! There is one caveat though – you really need to practice a lot be patient.
Super late post this week! Been pretty busy, which is always good. First we have some quick sketches over this past week of turkey stuffing. Then I have 2 of 3 Tiny Dragon entries for an online challenge the I finished up 🙂
Up this week are some more gestural drawing warm ups for the morning as well as a figure drawing session, and some outside work 🙂
- Also finally figured out how to make a gallery look a little nicer 😮
I have decided to get my behind back into gesture drawing. It is great practice for understanding the flow and motion of a figure. So daily exercises are the way to go if you can afford the time. Here are mine for the week so far as well as some life drawing and other miscellaneous things that pop into my mind.
A little bit late, but here it is. Last week’s Inktober lineup.
And here is a piece I just finished for one of my gallery shows at the end of the month. I call it The Dragon Talisman. Took a while.
And last but not least, finally done with this fan art piece. Took forever, but learned a lot and will learn more in the future.
Yes. Inktober is now upon us once again. An ink drawing a day keeps the…headless horseman away? I don’t know, but it sounds cool.
Next up I have my entry for the Paint a Monument Challenge over on James Gurney’s blog. Was a lot of fun to do, and had a few friends join me so the conversation was good as well 🙂 I guess I should call most of my sketchbook stuff “mind trippin” because that is what it seems like to me after I look at it a few days later!
