I really wanted to draw from the figure tonight so I used Youtube and had my own open studio online.
There are several online resources now for artists to learn online and the New Masters Academy is actually really nice. I really love their youtube videos of model poses because the videos are at 4k resolution and the lighting on the model is just about perfect. Here is the first video that I drew from.
The first session of drawings went really well so I decided to do another using a different video. Both have the same setup of poses;
- 5, 1 minute poses
- 5, 2 minute poses
- 2, 5 minute poses
- 1, 10 minute pose
The entire length of the video is 35 minutes long. The great thing is that I was able to see the videos full screen on my iMac monitor which is quite large and I was able to pause the videos and take breaks if I needed. Here is the second video that I drew from.
