This week is mid-term and the work load is cooling off for some of our classes. (Which is great for us because Editor's Day is around the corner and we need to pull together another new set of portfolios just for comic) We really enjoyed the intense study in Professor Dove's class in "Drawing for Sequential Art" and the word "great" is just an understatement of how marvelous the journey has been.
Before we depart to Atlanta tomorrow, we're like to share some of the great exercises we did in this short 4 weeks of 8 classes. (7 to be exact, first class was introduction) We can safely say that we're about confident drawing the human figure without reference on most angles from the skull to the fibula area for skeletons (memorizing the lists of bones which includes sternum, clavicle, ribcage, pelvis arch, humerus bone, scapula, radius, ulna, femur, fibula, tibia, iliac crest just to name a few) to the muscle groups ( pacs, deltoids, tricep, bicep, flexor capri, extensor capri, sterno mest., trapezious, serratus magnus, rectus abdominus, quadriceps, tibialis anterior , etc) In fact, everyday we're drawing it over to drill it in deep into our sub-conscious mind.
Its a great program and we just can't have enough. We had no idea why we won't interested about skeletons and muscles earlier. We probably didn't think much of it back then.
(Ps. There are still 10 - 15 more detail studies of the ribcage, head, arm and leg that we didn't scan in. Wish we could show you guys the amazing stuff we learn.)
