Figuring out

Some Action

Today we were drawing human figures and studying human proportions. I accidentally asked my students to fill ten pages of their sketchbooks with sketches of different bodies, limbs, heads, ears, lips etc., anything related to human proportions. And the moment I said it I realized that I have to do it as well... Me and my big mouth! However, it was actually a good thing for me to do. I felt really rusty, but then after few pages it got easier.

I took my inspiration from Andrew Loomis - Figure Drawing For All It's Worth. There's actually a possibility for free download of this book at . When you use these human frames it's easy to get the figure's actions look right very fast. You quickly know what posture works and what doesn't. Now I quess I should just draw more.
