Last sunday’s been a month since I began practicing gesture figure drawing daily, while I can’t afford going to live figure drawing sessions I’m relying on the next best thing, The Drawing Script and the Figure & Gesture Drawing Tool. To celebrate I’m sharing some of the results from this month.
The time for each pose goes from 30 seconds to 11 minutes and man, those 30 second limit really make you stop thinking and start landing lines, I never thought you could even put pencil to paper in such short period of time and I certainly can’t get a whole figure in 30 seconds yet but at least you can tell it’s a human being (most of the times).
I’ve always looked in awe at artists posting their figure drawings, such confident lines, accurate, dynamic, perfect! I want to draw like that too, confident, accurate, bold strokes, want to draw faster and get a better comprehension of how the body works, render it in as few lines as possible.
Have you heard of “fail, fail again, fail better”? “practice makes perfect”? Go figure, it actually works!
