It is figure drawing day again and I actually didn’t forget it again. I’m getting good at this now. Not the drawing part but the remembering part. That’s still a good step though. It leads to more consistent practice and that in turn (I hope) leads to better drawing.
I decided on another mannequin sketch for my figure drawing practice. Despite its lack of pose-ability I’ve still grown quite attached to it. It allows me to combine life drawing practice with figure drawing practice without … you know … trying to actually draw a person. That’s still too scary. Unfortunately today I didn’t quite fit the whole mannequin on the page. I misjudged the scaling there a little bit. Oh well, it’s still most of a figure drawing. Plus today it gets to actually be in colour!
I chose some pretty strange colours for it though. I was mostly just picking whichever colours appealed to me. I decided to stick to shades of yellow, brown and red for the actual figure. Then later I decided to aim for sort of a medieval feel. It didn’t quite turn out like I envisioned but it was an interesting experiment and a learning experience.
