Another Figure Drawing

I found time again to draw last night. Although copied from a book (again), I was happy with the result especially with how I shaded the right knee/leg. I kept in mind the negative shapes and relative positioning I learned from past classes. Studies of anatomy and other drawings helped too. I'm looking forward to more time practicing. I have to work on how I do the shading.

Dinosaur and Human Figure

I was able to find some time to draw the last few days.

I saw this dinosaur sticker in my sons bedroom. The texture and the shadows made it a perfect for drawing practice. I left if unfinished as I wanted to practice more on the human figure.

I am proud of this human figure that I did last night. Even though it's not from life (I just copied it from a book), I was very happy with the result. This is the first time I got a result like this. Studying anatomy really does help.

Trying Portrait

I have watched videos and tutorials on how to draw eyes, notes, lips, etc but I have never really sat down and try to do it. I tried to keep in mind that I am just practicing and not trying to do a complete drawing.

I'm Back

Wow, it has been a while since I sat down and actually draw. It had been a busy past 2 months.

I didn't attend any art classes the past 2 months but continued reading drawing books. But of course there's no substitute to actually grabbing a pencil and draw. 

I've just heard about a very good artist Robert Liberace. Been inspired by his classical style of painting, drawing and sculpting human figure.

Hoping to draw and post more art works.
