Life Drawing Practice - by J.K.

Postby JK Riki » Tue Jan 10, 2012 11:35 am

In 2011 one of my goals was to fill a sketchbook (100 pages) per month with life drawing practice. Well, I fell short of that by about seven sketchbooks, but I learned a lot and decided to give it a go again in 2012. I've been doing at least a half hour of drawing per day so far, and things are going well. I'm really enjoying it.

I thought I'd say hello to the forum, what with being new, and also post some of my sketches at the same time. So hope you enjoy! (And I'm always open to suggestions, if anyone has any!)

Wow, thanks! That's totally awesome of you. Yes, Animator Island is there to help other animators improve, so we appreciate the link. The more animators that get something out of it, the more it's been worth all the work! :)

This coming Monday's article is actually on Drawing; a tip that helped me a lot to change my perspective on practice. I never liked to practice much, but now I love to draw.
