Well, I want to make sure I'm well versed with traditional mediums, and I think markers would be useful down the road. Maybe if I didn't have a computer around and needed to make a drawing more finished..?
Jebus! You've improved sooo much since the last time i dropped by, the figures are looking a lot more solid then before and your heads are just on a completely different level. If this is what life drawing does to you i gotta find a course or something... Man.. Keep going!
And to answer your question with a belated answer; you learn a lot from just reading around on this forum, tips, techniques, teachers both good and bad, schools, everything related to art.
Man! I *love* your gestures...your lines are so economical and lively. Subscribing to this thread--I think I'll learn a lot from it! Do you think Henry Yan's book is a worthwhile investment? I really love his technique, but it's pretty expensive and I've read that the text leaves something to be desired...thanks!
Your figures are absolutely lovely. I'd love to get where you are with Charcoal. Guess I will have to push myself more in my figure drawing classes
I tend to despise gestures, preferring the longer drawn out works, but I think I might focus a little more on those. Your a great inspiration
Imaginary: thx! These are all 5 mins or less. Karein: Thank you, I like gestures more because it forces me to make quick decisions which usually results in livelier strokes for me. In long poses, I tend to slow down too much and start to noodle...A heathy mix of both is essential though!
