And now for something completely different!
Originally this daily drawing challange was supposed to force me to improve. And it did, for the first three weeks. I learned a lot about my sketching, composition, painting and so on. I think I improved everything BUT my anatomy. Drawing from imagination is fun but it does not teach you anything about the thing you are trying to portray. I think that's what I was missing lately. Learning about human form.
There is this great exercice called "draw a 100", and it's... well... about drawing a 100 quick studies of the thing you have trouble with. I thought I'd do female torso for starters. Need to work on the basics.
Here's the first 25. Each one took 5-10 minutes to do:
I had a lot of fun doing these and I alredy feel that I've learned a lot. Even though I am only 1/4 there. I'll try to focus on more challenging poses in the next 25.
I think I'll focus on finishnig this exercice in the next couple of days. After that, who knows.
Ps. I got the idea to do this exercice from this awesome site:
