Quackcast 334 - body technique!

Let's get physical! let me hear your body technique!
As a follow up to my newspost on Friday about figure drawing, we all got together to do a Quackcast about it, along with contributions in the form of comments from DDers on my newspost. Figure drawing is hard, it takes a lot of practise, but there are a lot of approaches you can take to improve like wire frame drawing, gestural sketches, geometric shapes, drawing shapes and silhouettes, using mirrors, photos, and copying what others have done to try and understand and improve your technique. We add our own insights and use silly accents to read out the contributions :)

Gunwallace's theme for the week was for Cerintha: Classical, careful, creepy, The clarinet plods along methodically while the violin skips, leaps and dances, pure piano tones ring out like tinkling bells, sparkling with light and joy.

My body technique: 1. Put lines on page. 2. Realise they look crap. 3. Redraw them. 4. Repeat steps 2-3 many times. 5. Realise it still looks crap but it's probably not going to get any better. 6. Publish. (I probably need to refine my technique a little. >_>)

This is a very important thing for me. Making characters that resembles faithfully the human body it's a hard challenge. I've preparing some stuff to share with all of you my techniques and it'll take me some time to complete it, but for now you could check my comic's extra pages where I share sketches and other stuff. I hope you like it :D
