I really like life-drawing. When I first did it in college I thought seeing someone stark naked infront of me would be too awkward and off-putting, but after the first minute of awkwardness it’s really good. I like how you don’t really notice the anatomy, but you notice the figure and all the curves and shapes that make it up, which is very beneficial especially if you’re a technical artist. Sometimes it’s better not to follow a formula.

Even though I’m more of a cartoonist, I still really enjoy life drawing and I can’t wait to do it again!
