Today marks the 100th day that I’ve created and posted art on this blog!
Someday, I hope my art reaches a level of zen, where I can sit back and create whatever I want without having to go to painstaking lengths to create it. For now, I’m content with my plethora of gesture drawings and anatomical studies because I know they will help me ascend. This guy seems so at peace and appears to be one with the world. I’ve been dabbling with meditation of late and I can only imagine what real meditation actually feels like.
Also, I recorded a video of this drawing as I drew. Sadly it wasn’t time lapsed and is really huge. I’m going to see if there is a way I can still create a time lapse with the video having already been output.
Today’s Warm-Ups and Exercises:
- 20 minutes of 30 second gesture poses (quickposes.com)
- 45 minute study flexed arm vs stretched arm
