Princess Bride Composition

I’ve chosen a Princess Bride composition for the drawing and it only took a couple more thumbnails to get there.

My energy was waning today so I ended up with a shorter session but excitement for this composition study brought it back somewhat.

I honestly feel that this new process is what I should have been doing with these drawings all along. There is an energy I get from the process that I haven’t felt since my painting of Patrick.

It’s one of those moments when something just feels right, like I’m on the right path.

Clothed Modeled Drawing

I’ve never done well with the modeled drawings from The Natural Way to Draw book. I always get caught up in the surface rather than just focusing on how the form moves through space. I’ll also pick a subject that doesn’t have a ton of complex folds.

Daily Composition and Sketch

I really phoned this one in today. I need to stop doing that. Like Georges St-Pierre says in his book on The Way of the Fight. “Perfect practice instead of casual repetition.

What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

I’ve chosen a Princess Bride composition!

What needs work? What did you learn?

Work towards perfect practice not casual repetition.

How am I going to Optimize moving forward?

Any practice that I do daily I will remind myself of it’s purpose and recommit every day.
