I’ve continued working on drawing fashion figures. Referring to my text book, I’ve produced a couple of line drawings demonstrating different poses. Using one as a template I went on to complete a body shape.
I’m in two minds about the path I’m taking. These images look very easy to produce and shouldn’t take much time, but to create two reasonable looking legs I probably drew about fifteen or so. The book encourages rubbing out instead of continually starting again and I find that useful. It’s instructive to be continually going over and over the same space until you’re reasonably happy with something.
I definitely haven’t got a natural talent for figure drawing but let’s see where this goes. I’ll continue with it over coming months interspersed with other more immediate projects.
Love the difference a tilt makes!
It’s true, Jo. There’s a little bit of life coming through this one.
As you might know I don’t believe in natural talent, but just persistent practice. If you love it enough you will get there. If at first….. as they say. Looking good anyway. Don’t forget that those gorgeous posts that others might put up might have taken lots of tries too, they are just not as honest as you. 😀
This is an interesting direction for me, not something I saw myself doing maybe a year or so ago but I like to try new things and if nothing else I’m tenacious. So I’ll be persevering and adding to my collection.
Good on ya!
