Right now in life Drawing I am working on the structure of the human anatomy. Our teacher
wants us to feel the structure through gestures and get the proportions correct. We have
just finished working on the Human skull, have worked with the whole figure, and now we
are moving on towards the hands and feet. The fine detail, of course, can not be captured
exactly as is, but the objective of our assignment is to make the figure appear as human
like as possible. I have a technique that has made me improve my work. I draw as if I
have never seen what I am drawing and I have to present the work I do before a queen or
someone of a high rank. It also helps to get total determination before you start your
assignment to think you will do well. Be clam and relaxed to a point where you are comfy
yet still alert for your work. Your drawings should have a guesture that is almost
equivalent to the movement of your subject that you are drawing.

I found out the easiest materials to work with are the most simple. Instead of newsprint
paper, which is more soft, and harder to work with, I use sketch paper. The sketch paper
is more rugged. I use a pencil instead of charcoal. The pencil gives you the advantage to
get a more fine point as well to make your lines lighter if necessary. It is also easier
to erase. In class, we usually either have a model to draw, or work with each other’s
figure. I feel it is better to work with our classmates rather than the model because we
have gotten use to each others appearance’s which makes it easier to draw.
