Sketchbook Sunday #11
I know it's Monday, but it was a holiday weekend so it's technically Sunday, right? Anyway, this week, I wanted to practice with pretty and natural poses but I really didn't want to draw eyes because it takes me forever to get them accurate and I just wanted to practice body types anyway so I just couldn't be bothered. SO I drew all these girls facing away and focused primarily on getting a natural, flowy pose. Also stars because why not?
Tip: When drawing bodies, don't be afraid to make lots of lines for your initial sketch, but make them super light until you have a solid shape, then go back and make darker lines for your outline so you can see where you need to make changes. Sometimes drawing lots of darker lines makes your drawing jumbled and difficult to decipher, so stick with lighter, fine lines until you have a defined shape.
I used a reference photo from Unsplash for this cute overalls girl. If you are in need of reference photos, Unsplash is a great resource. They have a ton of images and all of their photos are completely free to use so no worries about copyright infrigement and all that!
