The next step in preparation for the long-pose figure drawing project is to draw a medium long-pose. Iliya considers this to be any pose that’s worked on for 2-4 hours– enough time to introduce some anatomical elements and to bring the drawing to relative completion. This slow build toward your long pose figure project is vital to the success of your drawing.
