To understand foreshortened poses, I have to understand the basic foundation of perspective. Perspective is one of the hardest things for me to wrap my head around. That means drawing boxes. Once I learn to draw these things freehand with a certain level of accuracy, perhaps I can tackle figures and other things much more accurately.
As always, it isn't a matter of drawing what I see, its learning to replace what I think I see with what is really there.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
