Last post from Gesture Class

Mark's gesture class has been over for a couple weeks now, I miss it! :[
Here are some sketches from the last couple sessions.

Cat Woman with Malo Youssefi

Hawaiian Dancer with Jee Teo
(Sorry again for the quality, I'll try and light them better or scan next time)

Basic Figure and Anatomy with Vilppu

Glenn Vilppu's Basic Figure and Anatomy class just wrapped up this past Tuesday over at the Animation Guild. Great class, but what else would you expect from Vilppu. Poses in the class ranged from 2 mins - 1 hour. He does a good amount of demos, either by drawing on a tablet PC which is projected on a screen or traditionally with various media.

I haven't drawn in a classical style for quite some time so it was nice to get back into thinking about the actual anatomy.

(sorry for the odd quality, I had to photograph them)

If Glenn's name doesn't ring a bell you can find out more about him, his classes, and all of the learning materials he offers at

Sketchbook Update

Goodness, it feels like forever since I last posted, sorry for the gap. I have a stack of backed up figure drawing in queue to scan but in the mean time here are some things from the sketchbook.

A friend of mine recommended that I try going over my sketches again with tracing paper to figure out the shape language. I think over all these turned out much more successful than the originals - and it allowed me to tweak some things. (Highly recommend trying this out yourself)
