Reddit’s Sketch Daily – Referenced and Unreferenced Anatomical Gestures



Assignment: Realistic Anatomical Study. 1 minute. 10 minutes. 30 minutes. ( I realize 30 minutes is a long time)

3 drawings of the same subject with time restraints.

Very few of us are porn stars or superheroes. Most of us haven’t seen the Gym since our last High School pep rally. Some of us are hunched over a desk all day or slouched watching TV. Many of us never make it out of bed. The rest of us are just trying to make it to work on time. All that is to say that we all have imperfections and that is what we’re trying to capture.

It’s been a while since I’ve done any figure work so this was a nice change of pace. My tea timer helped keep my time in check so I wasn’t spending more time than I should fussing around and just going.  The 30 minute did extend over about 15 minutes only because I was very unsatisfied with her face when the timer went off. Rather than letting it be a massive blob I worked in the details a little better and did some blending.
