figure drawing

I read somewhere that as an animator it’s good to have a strong sense of what makes a good pose. So a couple of weeks ago I started drawing simple stick figures in what you might call ‘action poses’.

running-to-camera-(kapow!)

kapow!

sneak-attack-(pow!)

pow!

I’ve always been reasonably good at drawing generally, but it’s something I’ve hardly done at all in the last 20 years, so I was quite surprised to find that I sort of had a knack for doing this. Mind you, for each of these drawings posted here there are ten or twenty others that range from not-quite-as-good to downright crap.

ready-to-shoot-(blam!)

blam!

I do them entirely in pen in an A6 sketch pad. I find I can’t draw in pencil at all any more, I need to make a definite black mark on the page. I also draw quite small – the largest of these drawings could fit on a credit card-sized piece of paper – although last night I started drawing slightly bigger into an A5 pad and noticed a definite improvement. It’ll cost me more money though.

creeping-up-(kaboom!)

kaboom!

I try to draw a little every day, so I’ll post more as the inclination takes me.
