Beautiful David. How much time would you say you put into this figure drawing?

David Malan said...

Thanks guys. This is a 1.5 hour but I came back to it and spent maybe a half hour making the linework cleaner.

Amazing work as usual, your site is both inspirational and instructional for those seeking to learn how to draw. Just one questions about this one - out of the 1.5 hours you initially spent on the drawing, about how much was on blocking in/outlining the figure (assuming you follow that sort of procedure)?

David Malan said...

Thanks Anonymous, I don't really think about it but I guess I try to put down the block in in the first 20 minute session. It's best to get it down because its rare that the model gets back into the exact same pose. So if I can lay out the structure i can spend the rest of the time making it look good. It is of course important to get the lay down right so as not to run into problems down the line. I try to keep well practiced with structure drawing and measuring.

Unbelievable work!
What type of paper and pencil do you like to use in your figure drawing.
