This was filmed sneakily by tutor Tony during one of the Life-drawing sessions at uni. Tony knows this is my favourite part of life drawing. Known as the 'expressive part' we are encouraged to focus on communicating the feel of the pose, working on translating the focused strength and muscle tension of the pose onto the paper.
This practise has strongly influenced my learning and helped me to realise that in illustration you can draw things exact or styled up as much as you like, but it's all useless if the right feeling isn't there. This is something I've been really focusing on this year.
