Figure Drawing Studies

Done in Photoshop or traditionally, such studies also present different methods: In the first image we see a bunch of 30 second characters – their purpose is to force ourselves to focus on what is essential in a pose and how to quickly communicate it.

There are several tools that aid in this type of study – for example, the site Figure & Gesture Drawing.

Another reference that I must mention is the book Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators, by Mike Mattesi. It helps a lot in expressing movement through drawing (by using lines as guides that represent basic movement direction in a pose, as well as training the view to notice silhouettes and relationships between shapes.) I have also spent a long time studying Glenn Vilppu!

Finally, I’ve also written a blog post recommending James Gurney’s (a lighting and color theory master) works.

Keep studying!
