Learning to See - A Tutorial by SenshiStock Learning to See - A Tutorial by SenshiStock
I can't even remember when I started this. It was a long time ago, at least three years. Originally I wanted to include it with the Best of SenshiStock book but I never developed it as much as I wanted to for the book. Instead of keeping it unfinished forever on my harddrive where no one would see it, I finally just decided to upload it here. It's really incomplete but I hope the basic stuff I talk about will be helpful.

The initial pose used is Sailor Pose 51 by SenshiStock

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards can be found at DrawRight.com. (It's a great book, really amazing.)

I really hope that some of you get a lot of use from this! :heart: Huge image is huge.

You can use other techniques in combination with this one (like using balls and boxes for different parts of the body). Use all the tools available to you to make the best art you can make!

Learning to See - A Tutorial by *SenshiStock Suggesters Words: This tutorial explains a fundamental aspect of improving one's art: learning to "see" like an artist. I think too often, these basic skills are overlooked when they can prove so beneficial if practiced. Not only does SenshiStock's advice in this tutorial take the intimidation out of figure drawing, but it teaches artists how to give those drawings "life."

This is extremely useful! I have been your watcher for awhile even I have not used the reference yet as I just get a feeling it will be useful one day. Now I go back full speed on drawing and reading this is just a nice step to begin with! Thanks for putting effort on creating this! It really helps!

This is a really interesting way to do it :) I will try it this way. I really think figures will look more vibrant if that will be considered.
