Push-ups for pencils. Sketches for stretches!
We skipped drawing class yesterday, and I thought it was important to keep drawing, so here's a few more aerobic sketches I did last night. These are almost as good as working from a live model. You're able to pause exactly where you'd like to capture the action, and they never move. The best thing though is to really be able to concentrate on the proportions of the figure in stop-action-type situation. You can also see more easily how the figure looks in the round. As she spins, I can remember the last pose and how it relates to the one preceding it. Interesting AND challenging.
