Figure Drawing 09/22/11

1's, 3's, 5's, a 10 and a 15.  Found it really difficult to keep focused on just the concepts.  Kept getting distraceted into copying the pretty contours. They're hard to resist =)

Back to figure drawing class with Karl Gnass.  In the spring figure drawing session I spent a lot of time studying anatomy.  This time around I'm not going to think about it at all.  I'm going to focus on describing what the model is doing in in terms of axis, balance and direction, cleanly and clearly with as few lines as possible.  I've been looking through and reading Donald Graham's Composing Pictures and Michael Mattesi's Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators. 

These are all my drawings from Thursday night pretty much as they were drawn on the page in class.  I'm posting them like this because I intend to use the simplified figures to work on my in-class page compositions and I'd like to record my progress.
