First Attempt At ‘Life’ Drawing

It was suggested that I partake in a life drawing class to loosen up my sketching. Unable to attend a class at this time I found some online life drawing videos. (Croquis Cafe) Today was my very first experience with figure drawing. Below is the progression of my drawings. (Did not pause any of the poses.) I surprised myself with the last sketch of the five minute pose. I know this is not as educational as the real thing but it will have to do for now. It is said that a knowledge of human anatomy is helpful. The only anatomies I am familiar with are those of annelids, amphibians, fish, birds and felines which I studied in high school, uni and work. 🙃
