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.
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
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
