Draw someone from life and share!

6d1d9b71

ASSIGNMENT

Go to your local figure drawing class, bother your significant other by making them pose for you or check out one of the online tools for figure drawing mentioned in the last segment of the class and linked below in the Discussion section, and just as taught, after you've warmed up your hand with gesture drawing, use your favourite medium or experiment to find out your favourite, and create figure drawings that might even stand alone as beautiful personal pieces.

DELIVERABLE

Upload a scan or good quality picture of (even just one of) your pieces, including if you wish any warm-up you've done, and any thoughts you have on the creative process.

CONTEST

The most creative and successful piece will be awarded a 13x21 Moleskine sketchbook and a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen! You could be the winner, so enroll, share the class and finally post your project to get the goodies!
