Draw­ing with­out copy­ing

ImagineFX - - In Depth Figure Drawing -

With the model on a break, I have the chance to work on the draw­ing with­out the dis­trac­tion of that old trap of copy­ing ex­actly what’s in front of me. This gives me the chance to rub into the char­coal shapes with my fingers, thumbs and tis­sue. It’s also the per­fect time to work some broad ges­tu­ral shapes into the back­ground, which adds move­ment to the fig­ure. One last thing I do be­fore the model re­turns is to work some Asian in­flu­ence into the face.
