11/14 Studies!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 13, 2009 by rapozaart

ok everyone, gonna be quick here! I’m heading to bed now but before I go… Heres the work we’ll be covering tomorrow!

Hope you dedicated dudes have been working on your free time!

We’re going to take the following photos and bring them into photoshop(or print them opaque… maybe 40-50% opacity and draw the muscle structure on top.) and draw the muscles over the photos. First thing we’ll do is totally ref Loomis then we’ll move into taking one and constructing the muscles from our memories!

Reffing this page and the pages after from Loomis Figure Drawing for All its worth!

We’ll be working like this –

If you don’t feel ready to work on this exercise yet then continue on with the loomis figure drawings from the first stream and the Loomis heads.

See you all tomorrow!

Download Drawing the Head and Hands

We’ll be covering the following pages working on step by step construction. If you can and have time I strongly suggest reading the material under his drawings. Feel free to try a couple tonight and read the material :).

Another thing – Don’t just let today’s studies die there. You’re going to want to do that figure a lot more whenever you can. Keep on pushing the for better structure and do more from imagination like we did. this doesn’t mean you have to follow the simple standing still figure we covered… Just make sure you’re working out the proportions the same way and it’ll all be good.
