So this one day I decided to do 2 back-to-back sessions which ended up with 2 completely different results.
First session, I did it the way I always do it. Tried to keep a structural mindset and think in boxes, as my tutor James Ghio insists all the time - whose life drawings have been a huge inspiration to me by the way. It slows me down, burns my brain cells and mentally wears me out, so there is a lot of desk-flipping involved!
|I should do models a big favor and not draw their faces!|
Second session, I noticed my brain has burnt out and I simply cannot think or focus anymore, therefore I just let loose! No structure, no boxes, no proper block-in. I got a lot faster but sacrificed structure and proportion for it, but to be honest it was liberating and no desks were flipped!
I am switching back to my nerve-racking method!
