Figure 20 Life Drawing

by Tx Williep, August 21st 2020 © 2020 Tx Williep

5 min life drawing that I have gone back to add & re-enforce shading. The original was done only with pen & ink. I wanted to show that backs are interesting.


Very nice drawing! I love it. The only thing that I would tweak would be trying to establish the gesture drawing in the beginning. Other than that it looks awesome!

Thank you for your critique of my drawing. This drawing is from a life drawing class - no gesture drawing involved. In a life drawing session, you have to get with the program (start drawing because the clock is running). In my drawing, I do not use a gesture drawing to begin the drawing process. If the figure is in a more complicated pose, I will set up markers that mark relationships between the various parts/elements of the figure.

Again, thank you for your critique.
