Anatomy Drawing Session

Figure drawing requires discipline and practice
when drawing the human figure in a variety of
poses. This has to be one of the most difficult
subjects that an artist can encounter because
of the subtlety with individual body shapes
that combine to form the human figure.
This past week I decided to visit a local artist
studio and challenge my anatomy sketching
abilities. I found this to be quite a task since it
has been a number of years since my last
drawing sessions. I find that as an illustrator,
it is very important to understand the
construction of the human figure and maintain
a looseness when drawing. So much of what
illustrators draw involves depicting the figure
somewhere in their work to assist in conveying
their message. Here are a few of my attempted
results. I hope you enjoy them.

Halloween Time!

Halloween or All Saints Day is celebrated on the
night of October 31. This holiday gives me a
chance to dress up and pretend to be something
else or dare to be. I really enjoy a chance to invent
a costume and wear it at one of my favorite parties.
