Life Drawing

Started by Jeff Kraykovic. Last reply by Kasper Aug 4, 2010. 1 Reply

To me life drawing is one of the most essential exercises an artist can do.  My problem is finding a place and time to do it.  Has anyone else had the problem?  Has anyone found a good solution?

Ahoy-hoy.  Haven't been here for a while but see it's been a bit quiet.  What's happening?  How are everybody's artistic ambitions and achievements?  I have a show coming up in February and am... nervous.

Great stuff James. I didn't join the group to comment as I like comic books but don't feel I know them well enough- I'd feel a bit of a fraud- but I love the drawing.

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that to be a nice person, with a sense of honor, and to show courtesy, good manners, and self-restraint are desirable, preferable behaviors, and this kind of approach should generally be adopted and practiced in everyday life. In most matters, or at least for others' peoples perceptions of you, the guiding principle should be to do what you feel is right, fair, and just, and to behave in a polite, friendly, and respectful manner.Now, here is the…See More
