Figure Drawing Resource 2

This post has taken far far longer than I had planned. As promised this is another great online resource for figure drawing . This one is by Rebecca Kimmel - the 3rd Rebecca.


She is an artist and an illustrator and the Anatomy Forum Leader at CGTalk where she has put together a bunch of assignment and links for beginners. "Rebecca Kimmel draws on her extensive formal training under master instructors Burne Hogarth, Harry Carmean, and Richard Bunkall to instill the basics required to accurately and faithfully interpret the human form" as aptly described by CGTalk. You can find her work here. She holds a 9 week workshop - Figuratively Speaking, Annalysing the Human Form but that's isnt for free :D. You can see some of her work on the forum here.

You will find a bunch of other useful links about Artistic Anatomy and Figurative Art from Kirk at CGSociety here.

UPDATE : July 21, 2006: I had written to Rebecca asking her for some additional links on her work and received a prompt reply. Here they are.

UPDATE : Feb 23, 2008 : Stumbled across Mirrorbooks while surfing today. It is Rebecca's blog about drawing and her experiences as a teacher.

Learning to draw

A couple of days back there was comment asking for help on starting to draw and paint. I'd asked him to join the WetCanvas! Classroom forum and to look up some additional sources from this site.
This morning I got a newsletter from drawspace . I find that it is growing to be a wonderful online resource for drawing lessons. These are divided into 3 levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced. drawspace also has a forum which is slowly growing and the activities are focussed on drawing with pencil, charcoal, color pencils and pen & ink. All the lessons have been written by one person and you have a choice of viewing it for free online or downloading the pdf version for a small fee. Brenda Hoddinott whose lessons populate this website is amongst other things a self taught artist. She is currently working on a new website along similar lines for Fine Art.

Today, Mayank has got an update with details of this site as an alternative and few other suggestions one of which I shall put …
