Master studies

Master studies are extremely important. I personally feel like an artist will never improve at figure drawing without doing master studies to see how other artist handle things. You will just keep repeating the same mistakes over and over. Here is a study of one of my favorite figurative artist Dean Cornwell.

  7. Very insightful post into your process. It took me a while to realize the path of the curves in the lower arm there follow that of the bones of the lower arm. Which makes this post even more invaluable.
