Day 4, #oneweek100people2017

Day 4 of #oneweek100people2017 and I’m pretty certain I got past 100 sketches today. Sketching through my kids taekwondo class is fun and challenging. It’s where I did most of my sketches today.

With so much action, gesture and exaggeration really helps to convey what you want. One of my favorite books ever is actually this 2-part set called Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes: Volume 1 and Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes: Volume 1. I’ve tried to put together some shots from pages below that show you the sort of topics discussed in the book and the sketches to illustrate them.  But I can’t say enough about these books, really.

These are probably my favorite books ever on the subject of drawing from life: so much to see, so beautifully explained and illustrated. And so much to read and think about.

Since I’m done with my 100 sketches, there might be a Day 5 from me, but I’m not promising…

    These gestural drawings are really helpful for “non-drawers.” Seriously, if people do quick sketches often enough they will better understand figure drawing

    Nicely done Suhita! And both of the Drawn to Life books are some of my favorites too. I’ve been reading them lately for the first time but I bought them years ago. It’s really great stuff.
