I know you all must be getting sick of seeing these by now!  I only had enough time to do four of these – the one on the bottom right is starting to incorporate sort of a line of action, I guess.  While I’ve been hyper focused on specific parts of the body while studying anatomy, I really feel the need/desire to study a simplified version of the body in movement, particularly since I do want to start attending some life drawing sessions soon.

Anyway, I will probably be doing at least a little bit more of these for now – although I have a meeting at work later today, so you might also be seeing some more doodles here tomorrow.

I managed to catch a bit of cold & didn’t get to post at all yesterday, but last night I did some more Andrew Loomis mannikins from the book Figure Drawing For All It’s Worth.  Not much to write about these – I’d like to get to the point where I’m less sketchy with my lines, but I guess I’m still a bit unsure of myself.  The top middle one was a bit funny, too – I was trying to draw the mannikins so their feet would end up on the bottom line, but I clearly missed it with that one!
