If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you
Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!
You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2 and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.
Huge thanks to Shamine for sending this to me. Gonna give it a shot when I can.
I’ve been needing to practice more, and moreso I’d like to learn better reference. One of my favorite artists greatest strengths is her ability to utilize references, so in the spirit of that, I hope I can incorporate more of these practices into my routine.
I found this absolutely striking snapshot on the beautifully-modified-grrrls blog among many others. Shots like this just take my breath away. I hope the brave woman in the photo doesn’t mind that I used this amazing portrait to practice.
I wish I could find who this is, the root blogs I checked don’t seem to be hers, but if anyone knows the source, please let me know so I may link and credit the original.
You’re absolutely inspiring. ♥ Thank you for the opportunity.
