Hello all. For these attempts I tried to find as many rhythm connections as seemed appropriate….may have over complicated them a bit in the process (?). I figured out each pose in pencil first then went over with charcoal pencil in a vain quest for that elusive line quality - frustrating, and charcoal pencil was not a miracle cure. The flow was ok but the taper does not want to reveal itself for me. I must be sharpening the pencils wrong 😑. Made some attempts from other artists whose figure drawing/photography I admire (Moebius, Bruce Gilden). Goal was to make a bridge to drawing from imagination by trying to figure out poses without all the landmarks of the naked body and when covered with clothes. Even got a dog in there, which was nice. Let me know what you think!
Thanks for this great lesson! I was waiting for something like this, and the fact that it is longer than usual makes it even better :D There is a lot of great information here. I would really like to get into the figure drawing more. I wonder if I should take anatomy lessons first, before getting into figure drawing?
I find it hard to draw objects on the paper in the proper scale. After watching the Demo I realized it's because I didn't draw the boxes first. Here are my Level 1 drawings ,after few attempts. I'll try to to do better job on the level 2.
Andrew is a great teacher. I'm following both the Figure Sculpting Fundamentals and the Portrait Sculpting premium courses. It helped me a lot with understanding the basic forms of the human figure, gesture and how to sculpt difficult areas. I fell in love with traditional sculpting, so I'm looking forward to finishing both courses and see where it takes me. As a 3D artist learning to become character artist, I absolutely recommend Andrew's courses.
