Whenever I make a work 'plan' it always falls flat on its face, always! It's almost as though I subconsciously rebel against any sort of structure I make for myself but I'm giving it another shot anyway! I decided to get off my backside and focus on really developing as an artist after being inspired by the recent work of my friends and fellow illustrators Dave Hooper, Ondrej Buchta, and Tom Heard. These guys are the biz, check 'em out!
So, I've put together a fairly simple plan that'll cover the next few weeks and it's mainly focused on studying anatomy...yay. It may be a bit
of a task but I believe that if you apply yourself to studying anatomy,
it can be a lot of fun. There's also plenty of fantastic resources out
there that have been created to teach and inform artists about the human
My rough study plan goes a bit like this on the anatomy study side of things:
General Anatomy - 6 days
Head -10 days
Upper Torso - 10 days
Lower Torso & Legs - 10 days
Arms & Hands - 10 days
This takes me through to the start of January...and then I'll do it again!
