This is the first in a series that i'll be putting together of resources available on the net to learn figure drawing. Rebecca Alzofon of Academic Figure workshops and classes has put together a tutorial on Gesture drawing, what it is, why it is important and how to go about it. The tutorial is animated and easy to understand.I had tagged her site a while ago but remembered it again only when i saw a reference to a study that she'd put together on Pierre-Paul Prud'hon. The article is on her interpretation of his style, technique and approach to figure drawing. She has subsequently updated the article here.
