3rd entry for July 28, 2013

(Knowing about the muscles and bones beneath the skin can aid in drawing people. From August 19 - 23 I teach a 5-day all-day intensive course at the TSA on Anatomy and Figure Drawing. I don't recommend it for absolute beginners, but if you've done some figure drawing (or lots of it) than it is a valuable tour - or review - of the skeleton and major muscle groups, put into practice with lots of drawing from models. You can enroll online here; just scroll down to the 702 Anatomy intensive listing.)

These are two 15-minute studies above, a 20-minute one below, and a roughly 10-minute below that. They are all done with a range of warm gray Copic markers. The second from bottom is on an 18 x 24" sheet of Cansn Mixed Media paper, and the other three are on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper.
The background elements in the bottom one were added after, mostly with 10% and 30% broad markers. The big markers are well-suited to experimenting with subtle environment treatments.
