Course In Progress

Use the provided ape footage in the "Study from Life - Ape Reference Videos" lesson group to do some sketching of your own. 

Make sure not to “pause” the footage as you will lose all sense of movement when studying from a static image. Each clip is set to loop 10 times, but feel free to replay them as much as needed.

Extra Credit: Using what you learned from studying live footage, draw some ape poses out of your head (memory sketching).

Memory sketching will help with several areas of your development

  • Highlight what you need to work on in your observational skills and understanding of the subject

  • Surprised yourself on what you actually obtained and learned

  • Become inventive in your realistic posing leading to more successful concept creature designs in your personal and professional body of work
