Well, I’ve been spending some time each day improving my figure drawing skills and anatomy knowledge and thought I’d post one of my recent pages from my sketch book. These are 2 minute drawings with the help of the Vilppu Drawing Manual (which is an excellent, interesting book to learn from).
As I don’t currently attend life drawing classes I found an excellent resource online that helps to recreate the life drawing environment-http://artists.pixelovely.com/. You can pick from timed lessons for faces, bodies, animals, hands and feet etc. They have interesting articles for the artist and a friendly forum too.
My current schedule is:
- 15mins of 30 second to 2 minute gesture drawing.
- 30mins improving my anatomy knowledge.
- Any other time available spent drawing from my imagination, practicing perspective/foreshortening, reading and adding to my knowledge.
Thanks for reading and hope you find this of use.
