Tuesday Tips - Life Drawing Exercise: All Straight LinesWithout proper instructions or guidelines, life drawing sessions can easily become boring and repetitive, with little to no progress in understanding the process. Once in a while, I try to apply some techniques learned along the way. This is one of them. The last time I applied the technique was through instructor Paul Wee at LAAFA. A great life drawing teacher from the world of animation. It is as simple as it sounds. Only allow yourself to draw with straight lines. I know, I know, i dedicated an entire post to “No Straight Lines”. I mean “kinda straight” here. It’ll help you tremendously in finding angles and planes throughout the body. Curves and shading can easily muddle a drawing and make it too tentative. Lines and angles have a strong opinion about them. They are very definitive. Your confidence will only grow once you go back to “full” life drawing. Have fun!Norm

Tuesday tips — Color comp

 I always do a quick color comp for every painting.  I like to use a very basic color theme.  It’s very simple color theory that always works for me.  Try it out and have fun.

hi everybody, recently i’ve been seeing a lot of people around the internet talking about experiencing drawing related pain
it feels like the right time to publicly recommend this extremely informative and well-researched minicomic by kriota willberg. i carry a copy with me everywhere and tell friends about it all the time because it is super helpful and has helped me unlearn some bad drawing habits and learn plenty of healthy new ones!
in 60 pages it covers
drawing positions that lessen stress on your muscles
a wide variety of easy exercises (and sample routines)
small lifestyle changes you can make to keep healthy
and when to tell if prevention isn’t enough and you need to see a doctor
you can buy it HERE and HERE. it’s very thorough, the author knows a lot about muscles and the body as well as about the specifics of drawing and it really shows. even if you haven’t experienced drawing pain yet, integrating this stuff into your routine is a good way to start taking preventative measures
stay safe and healthy everyone!

Wow hey so this is a thing I wish I’d seen last year…

PROTECT YOUR DRAWING HAND!
Guys, I know wearing braces is apparently the “hip” thing (or it sure seems that way by the sheer number of folks wearing them in art departments), but the fact is, you should NEVER have to wear a brace just to draw. I draw for anywhere from 4-10 hours a day, and I’m never in pain from it. And that’s because I practice good self-care. You should too!
Preserve your arm and hand!
