I’m really excited about my new class in figure drawing which is now called Dynamic Figure Drawing. It starts Tues, Sept 13 at the Calgary School of Art. This is a brand new class for me so I’ve had to do a lot of work to get it ready. So for the last few months I’ve been drawing many, many examples like those shown above. But what a journey it has been. I’ve loved all the practice. It’s an interesting blend of teaching the eye to see what they shapes of the body really look like from all sorts of angles and demonstrating them using correct proportion. As far as life lessons, once again I’ve discovered that if you just put in the time you’ll achieve the results. I’m just at the point where I am starting to enjoy drawing the figures rather than having to ‘work’ at it.
These are some figures I discovered in some WWE and soccer magazines. For me there is a real sense of confidence as I start to do more drawings that look pretty accurate and fewer that look wonky.
If you’re interested in this class feel free to contact me.
