A little foreword: I'm not the kind of person who is doing a lot of studies on human figure, but despite that I found this class to be super engaging and helpful.
- Lines of action
I found pinterest to be super helpful with finding reference photos. Not sure if they are 100% royalty free, but since it was for educational purposes, I went for it. Though there are not many images with a naked figure, there are a lot of pictures of ballet dancers where you can still see the body pretty clearly.
- Drawing cylinders
This exercise was the most fun to do. I am finally getting a grasp of drawing limbs in perspective (even though I'm still doing lots of mistakes) and I couldn't be happier about it.
- Drawing skeletons
- Male/Female proportions
Far from perfect, but at least now I remember the approximate ratios of human body.
- 30 min figure drawing session
This is the exercise that stressed me out the most XD. It may seem not as difficult, but there is actually not so much you can draw in 30 seconds (and yeah, all of these are 30 sec sketches). Despite that it was only 30 minute session, I can tell that towards the end of the exrecise I became much confident and tried to pick only those lines that would represent the essence of the pose the most. Definitely need to make these sessions a habit. And in case any of you want to know where I found the references for this exercise, there is an awesome website line-of-action.com. They have a big library of reference photos of models (both covered and naked) in a variety of different poses. It also gives you the opportunity to choose the length for each image.
- Drawing the full figure
Pretty happy with how it turned out. The reference came from the same website line-of-action.com.
That is it for now, please feel free to give any feedback, I would really appreciate it.
