I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
watching down on usIt's better to learn it in an art class, but it's basically drawing the form of what you see without concern for detail, because detail is not what you're looking for, you're looking for form. This◊ is a pretty good example. Each individual sketch was probably put down in a minute or less. Notice that there is very little detail, but the artist puts emphasis on the curvature of the torso and thighs, because those are the most important details of the form. Despite not being very embellished, the drawing still has weight—the body appears to be heavy, like it should. I highly recommend you practice gesture drawings by drawing something live—in person. Get somebody to do some basic standing poses, and just throw it down on the paper.

Banned entirely for telling FE that he was being rude and not contributing to the discussion. I shall watch down from the goon heavens.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
