Have fun sketching.
Happy Sketching! You can do it
A couple things that i've been finding helpful during life sketching
-- using a spine curve to get a flow of the line
-- having fun and believing that creativity and imagination can fill in missing pieces that may have been missed in a quick pose.
-- looking at weight and balance. Example where is the head so the body doesnt fall over, where are the arms so the body doesnt fall over in a walk, ... Does the head move during walk? If so why does it move in one direction sometimes and other place another time... Does the hip move in a walk? Does the torso twist in a walk? How are the shoulders and elbows different in a run as opposed to a walk? ...
Inspired by Wonjoon Lee (https://vimeo.com/user6226077) -- I learned about thinking about the "why" in a movement from talking with Wonjoon
Inspired by Glen Keane -- I've always loved his style of drawing and weight and bold strokes.
Inspired by Frank Thomas -- Seeing his work and reading his Illusion of life book is inspirational.
Inspired by Walt Stanchfield -- Reading his Drawn to Life books on sketching is inspirational. I love his discussion on exaggerating a pose.
