What is Life Drawing?
Life drawing or figure drawing is the drawing with pencil, ink, charcoal, paint or whatever you choose of a figure from life. Most often associated with drawing the human form nude.
What is Costumed Life Drawing?
The biggest difference with costumed life drawing is that the model has clothes on, you will be able to see how mail clings to the body of how a sword held. In our case we are also expanding this to not only clothes our model but also bring a character to life.
Why do it?
There are many reasons to do life drawing, one of the most common reasons is the suggestion that it will make you a better artist. True, practice can help you improve and develop skills and these sessions offer you a specific time to focus on creating art. Do not however be put off if you have never tried life drawing before, this can be your introduction. Maybe you are the next Da Vinci just waiting for the right moment.
