Statement of Intent:
In order to help me focus (read: concentrate) more of my attention in the subject of drawing, I have selected
a goal which I intend to accomplish with the learning of anatomy studies (which is meant the learning of a realistic art foundation)
and other helpful things which may pointed out by helpful and wonderful people.
To be able to produce adequately attractive art in quantities large enough to carry content of a literative value.
Pfff.... how to begin?
A bit of history I guess. As a child I didn't really see the point of drawing photo realistic art since you could just take... well, a photo. Besides when I drew anything interesting (such as the day I drew a couple of horses in clothes going to the mall) my designated bullies zoomed in on it very fast. So I decided not to bother with drawing much (bad choice, I know).
Fast forward to when I was about 16 and I'd recently discovered manga, a form of comic I hadn't known before (having read every single western comic my local library had, of course) that featured a wider range of genres than I'd experienced in comics before (it was a rather small library). I was hooked on them. A while later I was bored in class, can't say I remember a time when I wasn't, and copied a drawing of the back of the comic I had with me (Akira, if anyone cares) and realised that, while it sucked, it wasn't horrible. I maybe.. could do this?
And so I began my efforts to get good enough to make my own stories graphic narrative.
Right, now that you're all properly bored here is some stuff to start with. This was prompted by my dearest Jacket-Button who has been so sweet as to offer to guide me along the way. Go on, go be amazed by her art. I'll wait.
... all done? Good. Hope you left her a nice comment.
So here are four copy-drawings of Loomis' anatomy guides from pages 26- 29 in Figure Drawing: for all it's worth
