Weekly Drawing #6

2013, February 24 Leave a comment

Welcome back to another week in the Weekly Drawing series. The series where I post up my progress on learning how to draw starting from the basics and then moving onto different styles (and maybe developing my own!).

First off, the guide that I am using as reference can be found here:

The book that I am currently using is “Figure Drawing for all it’s Worth” by Andrew Loomis which is a bit more advanced and gets into the details of figure drawing including know muscle and bone structure to create a realistic drawing. This week specifically is moving from the mannikin frame to a general construction of the body.

I’m still terrible at perspective as always and will look to get that down after I have the fundamentals of a human done!

The book that I am using can be downloaded from here for free:

From next week onward will be further detailed drawings and then working on the female form as it has been only the male at this stage.

Without further ado, here are this weeks images with some comments on what they are.

Weekly Drawing #5

2013, February 22 Leave a comment

We are back once again with another week’s worth of drawing progress. This time I start to seriously study how to draw the human body properly including muscle structure and body shapes. However before we get into that, as always, if you want to also pick up drawing the guide that I am using can be found here:

Currently I am in the beginner section and using the book “Figure Drawing for all it’s Worth” by Andrew Loomis as my point of reference. Even just after a week of study I can see that there is a huge difference in how I now would draw bodies compared to previously and I’m sure that trend will continue. I’ll probably stick on this book for a while since it’s rather comprehensive and I am proceeding at only a moderate pace.

The Andrew Loomis materials can be downloaded from here:

Here onwards will be my progress in this new book.
