The Importance of Warm-Ups
I often don't get a lot of time to draw during a session I am teaching as I get around the room and help each person individually on their artistic level to personalize the experience. More often than not that means I have to be on point when I am giving advice. To start each session I often do 1's, 2's or 3's to have everyone focus on the importance of getting the flow and/or feeling the character/model is acting out - making it very hard to get caught up in the details of a short pose. These sketches were examples of how to stay loose, getting the total and not lost in the details. . . that's for 5 minute poses and beyond.
