Here's a warm-down from yesterday. :)
When I took life drawing at San Diego Community College in '97 my instructor, Nancy L. asked me "Sean, what do you want from this class?" I told her, "Nancy, I wanna be able to draw comic books, but I need to learn how to draw legs. I don't wanna stop at the pelvis anymore." Nancy said "Ok, let's see what you can do."
As I started she immediately stopped me, and said, "Sean, ok, I see what's going on here. You're trying to draw what you think you know, not what you see. You can't draw something you don't know how to."
Nancy changed my life forever drawing people. She taught me the shortcuts to looking at the human form, and I blame her in a loving way for showing me how to draw legs because I never wanted to stop, and I still don't! HAHAHAHA
Nancy let me be me as an artist, and guided me to having the confidence in my choice. I wish there were more Nancies in this world!
She gave me hope.
Hope y'all digs!
