I could've stopped there and kept making the clothes, but.. Just for the sake of anatomy, I bettered this one. It's important, as I'll be doing so many more soon.

Now it's a scandinavian/british mix.

I assume this thread is still kickin', and hasn't been completely usurped by the Daily Sketch thread.
Here are some sketches from my figure drawing class. I try to go once a week. We start out with 1-2 minute poses, then move on to 15/20 minute poses later on.

Also did a couple of posemaniacs sketches. first time trying anatomy anyway, thought I should get better at it. Do you guys have any other resources (other than loomis books) for getting better at anatomy in general? thanks :)

The best recourse in the world is finding a local life drawing class. They can be quite cheap if you find the right ones, 5 or 10 dollars for a few hours untutored  :y:.

I used to take drawing lessons, but didn't find them very helpful, since I could learn about as much by practicing online and getting feedback from others.

Not necessarily lessons, just going in and drawing a real person for a few hours. I do classes at university but there's also a couple of student run sessions where everyone just chips in to pay the model, and is open to the public, I'm sure you could find something similar.

The gap between drawing a real 3d object and something that's already been translated into 2d is immense. Plus if you find the right place everyone there is learning as well so you can still get the feedback in a more immediate way. And you'll also see a variety of different body types and real people posing in a way that is actually natural. Posemanics and photo reference are great but they've got nothing on reality when you're talking really learning the human form.

Your drawings here tell me you don't really need to READ about anatomy, you just need to practice, and in my opinion that's the best way to do it. I found this quite useful when I first started but I never got past the skeleton stage. I think it's quite affordable compared to other resources as well.

Just finishing up my degree, thought it would be fun to look back and see my progress with life drawing. This is two drawings from my first day vs two from the past month. 3 years and 150+ hours of life drawing. Still a long way to go but it's hard to be unhappy with that kind of improvement.



Probably around the same time for all drawings, 20-30 mins. Sorry about the double post but it's been a while.
