One of my recently discovered favorite artists, Paul Calle, states the importance of drawing from the human figure as much as possible (if I could find more figure sources). “Only through repeated practice will you be able to understand the basic structure of the human body.” I practiced some surface anatomy for artists so figure drawing can assist me in remembering the things I’ve learned. I keep forgetting the proportions. Ditto for human head.
I drew another portrait but it won’t be finished until tomorrow. I’m getting faster though. Not accurate but I’m relearning some value fundementals.
