Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Learning to See and Draw Energy

Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Learning to See and Draw Energy | Drawing References and Resources | Scoop.it

"This is the first of a number of articles teaching everything you need to draw the human body at its most lively. But before embarking on a study of anatomy, we're going to work on an essential preparation: learning to see, and to capture the energy of a body in motion or at rest."

Jerome Okutho's insight:

This comprehensive guide will help you develop the ability to properly observe energy in the human anatomy. The energy of the anatomy refers to body language that convey emotions such as happiness, sorrow, exhaustion, and hurry. Learning how to convey such emotions in your drawings will allow you to create expressive and lively drawings of human subjects.

The Ultimate Guide to Good Figure Drawing Reference

The Ultimate Guide to Good Figure Drawing Reference | Drawing References and Resources | Scoop.it

"There is a difference between good and bad reference. When I say “good” reference, I really mean “useful”. The number one quality of a useful reference image is the light. The light should be simple with a single, dominant light source being the preferred scenario. This type of lighting (which is also ideal for life drawing models in studio) is what produces the clearest light and shadow patterns and a clear distinction, or border, between light and shadow. It’s this clarity that is vital when studying figure drawing, head drawing & painting. This is especially important for beginners, young artists and artists in training.


Good reference is important for a many reasons. As an artist and educator, I value good reference simply because figure drawing is hard. Yes, figure drawing is hard, and since it is hard, it’s best to choose reference and lighting scenarios that can help simplify the drawing process and smooth out the learning curve. Why fight and struggle and swim upstream? Get good reference and lighting which will help you get the skills."

Jerome Okutho's insight:

Having access to a good figure drawing reference is the first step to creating good drawings. It makes sense. If you pick an image that's good to begin with, chances are your drawing will end up being equally good.


This article explains how to select the perfect reference drawing, and what to look for when picking a suitable subject to draw. The article also describes the elements of a bad figure drawing reference, so you can choose better images to draw.
