I am back and determined to finish!! So, I wouldn’t usually post a warm up drawing but I kinda liked this one, not sure why. I am working through the video lessons from Draw Force videos. This is a 2 minute timed poses week 1, just feeling the force.
Working on gesture has made me realize that the areas I am weak in are anatomy and perspective and that I also need to work on blocking in the heads, hands and feet. I am alternating a week following the live anatomy course (even though it is week 8 and I am in week 1) and returning to gesture for a week. So one week anatomy and one week gesture. I am interested to see what impact this has on my gesture drawing. I am also reading the Force Anatomy Book as I go. This will take a while but after I have done this, I am going to do the same process with the perspective course.
I don’t digitally draw very often but as this is also a skill I wish to improve, I am doing my draw overs for the anatomy course on a tablet. I am also doing some of these on paper as I would like to draw the skeleton with a loose gesture line.
I did the front as well, but as my back view was done second, it is the better of two. This took more time than expected and I will at some time go back and do this with finer detail (respect to those who drew every rib). Now back to gesture for the a week.
