Hello everyone 🙂
I would like to know if about 5 people are interested in forming a figure drawing related drawing study group? I find it sometimes difficult to stick to one full drawing course and start watching something else instead. I think it would be great and motivating to have a small group of people that have the same goal to work through the same lessons. We could encourage each other and provide feedback on the assignments. I think it’s very valuable to see different approaches to the same matter and I would love to see everyone’s progress.
We could choose courses like for example Beginning Figure Drawing by Steve Huston and follow up with the figure drawing series by Glenn Vilppu. I do not want to make it too rigid, but I would appreciate if we can find a way to establish a basic commitment within this group. Maybe we can find a way to structure the videos and say that we want to finish Videos 1,2,3 by the end of the week and choose a time-frame to take a look at each others drawings, etc. But we can of course talk about the details and brainstorm on the method afterwards 🙂
With regard to the level, please consider that I am still in my beginner’s phase 🙂 (you can take a look at my 100 Day challenge, if you need some reference!) but in general, all levels are welcome!
If you are interested, please let me know in the comments 🙂 If a few people are interested, I will think about the next steps! Thanks in advance and happy drawing!June 12, 2020 at 6:09 am #580565TomParticipant
Hey I´d be interested in something like this, but i am already halfway through Glenns course…

Let me know^^

thank you so much for you interest! We can definitely change the course to something else, as long as its figure drawing related 😀
I was thinking about maybe using Dropbox as a platform, because it has Dropbox Paper, which has some pretty cool functions for visual exchanges. For the initial communication, however, WhatsApp is maybe the better option! I will establish a Dropbox account on the weekend and come back to you here in the comments, maybe we find someone else who wants to join us in the meantime!
Have a nice weekend! 🙂June 12, 2020 at 11:15 pm #581517AJParticipant
I’m interested in joining a study group and I’m currently doing the 100 days challenge for figure drawing, so this is perfect! I haven’t had anyone to really bounce art theories off of so let me know!

Hi, I’d like to join too! I’ve been taking Steve Huston ‘s classes for head structure and i want to go into the figure next.June 13, 2020 at 12:08 pm #582188
Thanks for everyone’s replies! 😀 I’m really glad that you’re interested in joining this study group!
Please send your phone numbers to the following email address, so I can add you to the Whats App group to talk about the next steps (which class we want to focus on, if we want to use Dropbox or another platform, etc.): firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂June 30, 2020 at 7:23 am #605088Francisco FrutuosoParticipantNo badges. No points.
Im also interested in joining, working the figure almost every day, and currently going trough Steve Houston figure drawing. Hope there os some space left hehe.June 30, 2020 at 12:37 pm #605609
Hello Francisco, thanks for your interest! There is actually one more slot left for you!
We are currently following Glenn Vilppu’s approach, currently at Figure Drawing | Part 3: Box Forms with Glenn Vilppu to be precisely, but if this is cool with you, feel free to shoot me an email at the address I mentioned above, so I can add you to our WhatsApp group. We discuss different things and you can of course send us your figure drawings that are not related to the Vilppu’s class as wellJuly 4, 2020 at 2:00 pm #612401greParticipant
can you find place for 1 person more ? 🙂 I’m also taking Glenn’s Figure Drawing | at part 2 now.

Hello Gre, yes for sure! Just write me an email with your phone number! 🙂
For everyone else: we would like to keep the number of people small in this group, but there’s still room for one additional person!July 5, 2020 at 3:30 pm #614531greParticipant
@Ramona thanks that’s great 🙂 and …ups I’m not using whatsapp nor facebook.
Would slack.com be an option for communication? It’s free & designed for team communication (mainly a nice organized topic based chat tool).July 6, 2020 at 11:26 am #616138
Hello Gre! Oh okay, that’s unfortunate! We already settled down on using WhatsApp for communication.
We do, however, upload some notes and our assignments for the figure drawing class to a separate DropBox file, so if you want to have access to this file, please send me an email! We can comment on each others results of the Vilppu class in this file as well!July 10, 2020 at 11:21 am #623222AlexParticipantNo badges. No points.
