Figure Drawing Resource 3

reybustos.jpg

This is the 3rd in the series of Figure Drawing Resources that I find fantastic and which has been provided freely online.

Rey Bustos teaches anatomy and figure drawing in Los Angeles. I enjoyed the Flash based resource of figures with the musculature overlaid, provided for students of art and anatomy. You can see an example of it here here. Rey's Anatomy is just one part of the site. You'll also find his blog, figure drawings and many other resources on his website.

"As an educator I have worked hard to make my passion for anatomy more accessible to more students and professionals seeking a more interactive mode of studying or using anatomical reference. In this web site, I along with my designer Yariv Newman,have tried to give a taste of what I am striving to achieve but in a larger scale sometime in the near future. Please use my email to reach me if you are interested in any of the work that you see here or for any help that I can avail myself to you." - Rey Bustos

I plan to return soon to study it at leisure. I hope you find it useful too.

Update : Feb 25, 2007 : I was delighted to find that Rey Bustos had left a couple of comments on my back up blog asking folks interested in figure drawing and anatomy to stop by and say hello.
  1. Rey Bustos Says:

    Completely my pleasure and honor. I do get really busy, I teach 7 days a week but I always have time to check in on friends of knowledge and wisdom! Tomorrow, Sunday I teach my Anatomy/Ecorche’ class at the L.A. Academy of Figurative Art from 9-2:30, everyone calls my class “Rey’s Anatomy” which I love. Please have anyone at all use my email address posted on my site to pop in and say hello…don’t be snobs! Very warmly yours, Rey

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 …

Build your own easel

Came across this resource again recently. I had saved it in the hopes that I'd try it out one of these days. In the meantime, this goes out to all those who would like to build a well designed, inexpensive easel, now instead of spending big bucks on buying one. Ben Grosser has generously made these plans available for free. He is an artist and you can see his work here. If you do use these plans dont forget to send him photographs for his easel gallery.
