Play the One Drawing One Goal Game
For each pose, set only one of these goals:
In this pose I am going to work on proportion.
In this pose I am going to work on value and shading.
In this pose I am going to work on contour.
In this pose I am going to try using my eraser as a drawing tool.
In this pose I am going give my model an abstract value in the background and see if I can get more depth into my drawing.
This is a good pose to concentrate on movement.
In this pose I am going to work on volume and mass - see page 18-19 in BFDT.
In this pose I am going to work on foreshortening.
With these clear goals in mind for short poses you will not be disappointed, you will be doing focused drawing to practice one specific aspect of life drawing.
Eventually you will be able to naturally put them all together - but for now - concentrate on playing with one skill at a time.
When you post the drawing tell us your specific goal for that drawing! Onward!
