I'm sort of teaching a master study class at work. I say sort of teaching because I wanted to create more of an environment of excitement to learn together, myself included. Today we did master head studies and I did a little demo. I did this little demo back at my desk so if people want to follow along with the class at home.

These drawings were done at the Wednesday night figure drawing session at Gallery Nucleus. I was practicing something I learned in Paul Wee's class. He had us start with perfectly straight lines to get all the placement. For instance, you would draw a line from the head and follow it to see what else it hits. Much like this Andrew Loomis example

It can be overwhelming to design an entire set. So, I start with one tiny little prop. In this case, I started by designing a few bottles. Then I designed a cabinet to put the bottles on, then I designed the wall and floors. I'll keep designing a few more props and then start designing more of the room. I'll post my progress.

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.

Just thought I would post one of my afternoon studies. I just got "Alice in Wonderland". My favorite disney artists are Ward Kimball and Fred Moore. I love how everything is flowing, rhythmic, and appealing. There were other artist who were better animators, and even better draftsmen, but I don't think any of them had the appeal that Fred and Ward had.

Everyone storyboards differently and there is no "correct" way of doing it. This is just my approach so that I can get my work done quickly and not worry about deadlines. This gives me the freedom to try lots of different things and not feel like I can't try something because it would take too long.
