I've been working again on my figure drawings. The Yahoo Group Classical Figure Drawing is now working on torsos. I wanted to work larger and freer then on my earlier drawings so used a larger sketchbook and charcoal, instead of pencil. Also refused to use an eraser except for a little clean up after I had finished. I am pretty happy with these. They really pushed me out of my safe comfort zone. In fact, it amazes me how much I am enjoying these studies now.
The study above and below here were drawn using pictures in the book Artistic Anatomy by Paul Richer.
The drawing above is after Michelangelo, a true master. Mine is not so masterful but it is inspiring to see work such as his and to learn from it.
