Slightly more fleshed out Loomis mannikins

I’m getting to the end of this section in Figure Drawing For All It’s Worth! Just a little bit more.  As you can see, these mannikins are slightly more fleshed out than some of the others I’d been doing.  I feel like I’m starting to get the proper feel for them. Continue reading

I only had time for a quick drawing last night, so, more Andrew Loomis stuff.  I’m really determined to get through this section.  Not much to say, I guess – I probably won’t have much time tonight, either, but I’ll try to knock out a few.  It’s been awhile since I’ve done any life drawing/still lifes, though, so I want to get back to that soon as well.

Spending the weekend with Andrew Loomis

I did draw over the weekend, but at the moment I don’t have a scanner at home (well, I don’t have a cable for it), so my posts generally wait until I’m back at work.

Anyway, more Loomis mannikins!  I’m nearly done with the ones in the book, but like I said, I should probably try & draw some of my own from photos of people.

Loomis mannikins, yet again

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.

Loomis mannikins in different poses

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!
