Done as part of a 15 minute class (was intended to be a 30 minute class but I was interrupted halfway through). Contains poses ranging from 30 seconds to 5 minutes in length.

My goal is to better understand human anatomy so that I can render imagined poses.

I see you are using stick figures. That's good because you can more easily set up the action of the figure. When you set up a figure, look for related items, i.e., like the head lines up with the knee & foot. This will help you organize your drawing. It is the system I use for my drawings. You say you want to better understand human anatomy. Great. You need to actually do that: both muscles & bone structure. The internet has a lot of information in these areas for free. Once you have this under your belt, it will be most helpful to understand what you are looking at whether the figure is nude or clothed. The knowledge will not come overnight. Once you have it, your drawing will come more easily to you. In anything you do, practice makes it better. So get with it, you have work to do.


I think they look great! the only thing I would work on is make the features less stiff. You should try using less line and angles and go for softer curves and exagerate a bit to make the bodies!


Thank you! I will concentrate on that during my next practice.
