Continuing my adventures with charcoal! You'll probably notice I spend much less time drawing figures..unfortunately my focus is shifting towards improving my animation skills, so my only hope really is to just stay level by doing weekly life drawing.
OH...One really IMPORTANT TIP! Doing warm ups before starting a life drawing session is so useful! Usually the one minute poses are meant to warm up, but for me the 1 minute poses are actually something I really enjoy doing, so just filling 1 or 2 pages with figures from memory really helps to zone in on drawing the figure.
The model today was also doing some warm ups by stretching so a good opportunity to put in some extra drawings!
Now some longer poses from 2 minutes and upwards:
The pose below is kind of interesting because I abandoned my first drawing for some reason and then rushed through a second (both A3) that actually looks worse :P
