Been trying to post for over three days. Hoping they fix the upload issue(s). Been hoping to get into the challenge.October 3, 2021 at 2:13 pm #1811752LEWIS MACKENZIEParticipant
These are really terrific, Paul, I hope you post moreOctober 11, 2021 at 8:35 pm #1831514
Okay, here goes again. Here’s day 19.
Tried to post for a while with no luck. I eventually quit trying, then I got an email from NMA saying to give it another try, but I was in the process of moving and am just now able to try posting again. Hope this works.
Part of my second challenge is doing some anatomy studies. I decided to go back and look at some of the people I was told to study by instructors many years ago. I don’t think I really focused on these books at the time. I’ll try to do better this time.
Here are some studies from Stephen Rogers Peck’s “Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist.”October 12, 2021 at 8:32 am #1834083David CarterParticipant
Well done for taking on that book! I do like the look of it. For my first anatomy book I chose our very own Steve Huston’s work which I can say is very nice indeed (of course!)
To answer your earlier question, I still haven’t resumed my art studies or commenced another 100-day challenge as the dust is still settling from my move – still many boxes around the place, to-do lists, tradespersons to call and so on. The darker winter months should provide some quieter evenings though to get settled into a routine.
Keep up your good work – I will be following with great interest.
I like those symmetry torso studies – a great 3-d feel about them there.

Thanks David. What book by Steve Huston are you referring to? I have one book by him but am not aware of an anatomy book by him. If he’s written one I’d sure like to buy it.October 13, 2021 at 6:06 pm #1837481October 14, 2021 at 12:28 am #1837722David CarterParticipant
It’s Figure Drawing for Artists: Making Every Mark Count or I see there is a French translation if you prefer that! Dessiner le corps humain: Une leçon de maître. Ok, it doesn’t actually have anatomy in the title and it’s not really an anatomical study book per se, but it does have a lot of anatomical ideas in it.

I have that book, but I haven’t looked at it from an anatomical point of view, (probably because it doesn’t have “Anatomy” in the title!). After all these years I’m still too literal sometimes in what I use for instruction. I love how Steve teaches. I’m going to check it out this weekend from an anatomy perspective. Thanks for the suggestion!October 18, 2021 at 8:40 pm #1848726
Whew! Been really struggling to do my daily drawing/painting and when I do I struggle to post them.
I’m slowly getting a bit of organization done after my move. I’m really hoping to get on track with this challenge. I’m trying to loosen up in my drawing. Here’s some sketches from three days ago. Still way too stiff. Just now getting it posted.October 19, 2021 at 5:07 pm #1853449October 21, 2021 at 1:23 pm #1855744
Here’s Day 23.
Decided to do some quick sketch studies of a couple of my favorite illustrators, (Jim Lee and John Buscema), in an effort to push through this challenge of trying to loosen up. May do more studies of artists that I admire for their loose, gestural qualities.

The lower left of day 23 is my favourite! Is that Wonder Woman? The gesture looks so full of life, I love it!October 29, 2021 at 12:14 pm #1883351
Yes that’s a quick study of a Jim Lee drawing of Wonder Woman.
