i haven't been slacking off i swear!! over winter break, i read a couple of really helpful books, including perspective made easy by earnest norling and figure drawing for all it's worth by andrew loomis. very very good reads. i would highly recommend both.

over the course of last semester, it has dawned upon me how absolutely vital life drawing is to an aspiring illustrator/animator. and so, staying true to my 'all or nothing' motto, i booked both life drawing sessions offered at NYU. to be sure, it was very intimidating to attempt life drawing for the first time. the 30 sec/1 min. rapid poses were particularly difficult. BUT. challenges are how we learn best. after a full month of training, i am pleasantly surprised by how much i've gained from these life drawing sessions.
