A rotating exhibit of the things I love most about living in San Francisco.

monday figure drawing workshop, theme: “batgirl”

Tonight I attended a figure drawing workshop, and really enjoyed it. The workshop is intended for animators so the models pose in costume- tonight’s theme was Batgirl. The poses are short in duration and dynamic, changing every one, three, or five minutes, so the emphasis lies more on speed and on capturing the ‘gesture’ of a movement, rather than on drawing a realistic, representational portrait. Capturing the ‘attitude’ of the character, ‘pushing’ the pose and, perhaps creating a little story with one’s drawing, are very much encouraged.
