My partner was re-reading one of his own novels (a friend was so kind to write extensive comments on his latest piece of work) and so he was occupied for about six hours. Of course he was moving all the time but still rather fixed on one place. I also asked him not to "freeze" while I was drawing him but to behave just as he normally does. Good exercise...
Joshua - thank you very much for looking and for the Loomis tip. I had them all printed and work constantly with them. They got me to this stage already and as you I'm sure they'll lead me even further.
u know what book i think is also really good. the Bridgman books. Try looking for the complete works of bridgeman. that guy is awesome. that book helped me a lot.
