Post Your Imaginative Figure Drawings If You Got Em!
This thread is for everyone to post they're works in, about learning how to draw the human figure correctly from your mind. Life drawing is one thing, and after you master it, it becomes easy the more you do it. But drawing the human figure from your imagination, correctly, is an entirely different story. It's difficult to remember how every body part looks at every angle, and how to remember how to capture correct balance, motion and emotion in the body without the figure posing for you, giving you all the answers. So I've been studying more how the body functions, where the bone structure is, how things like knees bend and why, because over the years, even though I've had figure drawing classes before, I've forgotten a bit about the logic behind the function of human bone structure. I had tricks to how to draw the figure from my mind well, but not dramatic tricks to draw the figure well at every tiny level. Maybe some of you out there feel the same way.
I started this thread to bring back a classroom setting with other students who draw the figure. I figured this is a good way for everyone to learn MORE, FASTER, by posting figures drawn from the mind, revealing anatomy problems, and letting everyone give out solutions to how to solve the problems effeciently, so artists can finally correct them, learn more, and move on.
We can do things like circle in red where the problems are, redraw it correctly, explain why their was a anatomy issue and then have the artist do it better next time. This is for all of us who have anatomy problems here and there that we've always been so foggy on how to fix.
So, Post Your Imaginative Figure Drawings If You Got Em!
It is important that those who crit, 1) point out the anatomy problem, 2)explain the reason why there was a problem, and 3) solve the problem. Other wise, it will all be just loose comments and no explanations and learning.
