Life Drawing in Line and Shape

To answer a question I get asked pretty often, “Do you do line first or shape/color first?” I shot this little video while sketching in a virtual life drawing session.

The answer: I go either way and the end results aren’t that different.

Here is the finished page.

I would go back to non-virtual life drawing sessions in a heartbeat, they are a completely different experience, but for now I enjoy the fact that any day I think I can squeeze in some time to join a session, there is one somewhere in the world that i can join.
