Figure Drawings (2013) was my first experience working with a live nude model.
Of course there was the uncomfortable fidgeting and what not from all the new-timers, but after about 10 minutes, you begin to look at the person from a completely artistic standpoint.
Rendering the values of the body becomes one of the prime objectives, and using charcoal, erasing mistakes is not an option. That made things a little more challenging.
All in all, drawing from a live model was extremely useful. Even the 30 second drawings were a great training tool to get the general shape of the figure.
These drawings range from 30 seconds to 45 minutes.
