Poses: methods of drawing

the second part of

it gets into the method a little more and includes some of my process. Don't take these drawings as anatomically perfect. I am not telling you how to draw a certain figure, rather, how to teach yourself how to draw figures.

Edit: Sorry dudes; I see a few wee spelling and grammatical errors but it's soooo late and I'm in bed. I'll fix them in the morning. :)

This is something I need now and what I should come back to from time to time.

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I often stress about my sketching process but I'm staring to realize that I'm not even supposed to nail a pose in the first try. Your tutorial made me feel so much better.

I am so thankful for these tutorials that you have made. Sidenote: You should write a book :P  But seriously.... Just last night I drew, painted and completed a piece only to look at my final painting and realize it was HORRIBLE. Just awful. I won't post it here because it's that bad. But thanks to this little nugget of helpfulness, I look at it as a learning experience, and not as a complete fail. :3 Thank you again for these wonderful tutorials!!

Thank you so much! I love that your advice about learning is applicable to everything, not just art. I will copy some quotes down and start working :)

Great tutorial, very nice and thorough. The bonus section is indeed a bonus, because aside from art itself, much of the advice (if not all) can be applied to many aspects of life, and anything regarding work that requires a level of passion.

Very inspiring, you’ve made me realize what I have always known, but didn’t want to admit… Thanks 

Thank you for the brilliant tutorial! :D

And I was just wondering what brush settings do you have during sketching like in this tutorial? c:
hibbary's avatar
All the art done in this one is pencil. So no brushes to speak of. :F

Wow, I couldn't agree more with this, and I especially approve everything you stated in the bonus section! Your way of drawing figures is so smooth and expressive, I'm in awe. Please, keep that up!

Thank you very much for sharing your processes with us :) It's really interesting to see how a more developed artist thinks. Just out of curiosity, when is a good time to put down the studying and just draw? I have relied so heavily on copying references that I actually can't draw much on my own, and I'm having a hard time learning when it's OK to move forward, even when the drawing could be better-- sort of like the one-pot students in your example. It's tough to know when to quit lol.

The additional tips near the end really touched me as a person, because I'm just an amateur artist and I have been doubting myself for quite a while now, wondering if I have hit my limit. I never wanted to believe that, but seeing your words really inspired me. I'll practice more and keep trying!

Thanks a million!
