Figure Drawings

Here's some stuff from today's life drawing session, all 6 minutes or less. This is probably the best I've done as far as life drawing goes to date. In addition to anatomy, we've been studying comic book artists and animators in figure class, learning about how gesture, momentum and weight should affect our drawings if we really want to make our figures come alive.

We did some studies from Lil' Abner and Skydoll getting a feel for how gesture works on simplified characters and it really changed my way of thinking, and I think it really helped my figure drawing. Gonna keep practicing skeletons and studying bridgman and anatomy and all that good stuff; way excited to see what the next few months shall bring.
