    FlameDragon: It is helping me if I always remember to work from the inside out/from the general to the specific. I still screw up from time to time, but not as badly.

    Hmm, from the inside out? So you should start with the curve of the spine first?

    Certainly some nice work continues here.
    Rist As someone alluded to, in a drawing from a live model, you are applying your skills of observation, but most importantly you are interpreting the forms. A photograph has done this for you. The challenge for me is to create as dimensional a world as possible on a one dimension surface. Live models helps you to see, and mentally feel the volumes of forms.

    I don't believe you can get this sort of effect from a photograph.

    Live drawing also tests your anatomical knowledge and gesture skills because you have a limited time frame to work with.

    FlameDragon Starting your gesture line generally begins from the center of the figure, whichever direction the model is facing.
    Check this out, an excellent explanation of how to draw from life or not, scroll down 3/4's of the thread:

    Aztc those are really good. I am starting to study from your studies in your SB.

    Some drawings from tonight. I spent some time reading Kchen's tutorial thread. I haven't had a drawing teacher that taught us a scientific approach to light/shadow etc so I hope to learn it via books and by copying you guys
