I started another Schoolism Class, “Gesture Drawing” with Pixar artist, Alex Woo. Gesture drawing is one of my strongest skills in the artist toolbox, but I’ve always done it intuitively. I took the class to gain some new perspectives and ideas. Knowledge always makes execution much easier. Also, I’ve been wanting to get into the habit of drawing everyday. I’ve tried in the past, but it’s pretty hard when I’m both trying to tackle a routine change and an artistic challenge at the some time. So I’m going to start with changing the routine first.
This week’s assignment was making lots of quick sketches based on the “Line of Action”, which is often the curvature of the spine, but not always!
