Figure Drawing Resources

drawing

Nothing beats a half day work in a classical figure drawing class. It makes you feel like an idiot, handicapped in every aspect, turning your otherwise gentle nature into one of a bickering and frustrated individual.

Well, once you had a good dose of that joyous experience, you start to realize how little you know about anatomy and you start to view every little accomplishment as a super huge leap towards understanding the human form.

So, while I get my courage up to show my face again at one of these life drawing sessions, I will list a little on-line guide to some sites, that can help in understanding anatomy.
