I’ve been wanting to get back to my anatomy book, so I did this drawing of a right radius & ulna (from in front on the left, from in back on the right) on Sunday. It looks like I haven’t done any anatomy in about a month! That’s hard for me to believe – but it looks like I mostly focused on Andrew Loomis stuff in March. That sort of counts as anatomy, I think.
I also did some gesture drawings over the weekend. Can’t exactly remember when each of these were done, but I did some drawing on both Saturday & Sunday. Here’s what I think I did on Saturday:
I also watched some Proko videos on gesture drawing – not sure if it helped, but I think I might have a better idea on how to go about it. It’s just the execution of that knowledge that’s a bit tricky! But I feel like when I warm up, things start to improve.
Here’s what I did on Sunday:
Aaand, that’s that. I think Sunday went a little better. I’m going to keep doing these as often as possible, in addition to other drawings. At the very least, when I don’t have a lot of time to draw on some days, I know I can work on gesture drawings.
In other news: a bunch of you are doing the “draw everyday” thing, which is so great – I haven’t really been doing that, but I’ve decided to give it a go in the month of April. I can’t guarantee a post everyday if I don’t have access to a scanner, but I will try my best to draw something everyday & post the results when I’m able to. I’m also attempting to do the same thing with writing music – not that I’ll post the results here, but now that I’ve said it publicly, I’ll feel more accountable to actually do it.
