Life Drawings and Quick Sketches

I think that one of the most important things a beginner or student of animation should do is a lot of life drawings and quick sketches, and that goes also for all professional animators, including CGI animators.
To be able to capture the essence of a gesture, action or expression very quickly is paramount and should become second nature.   Basic drawing is the basis for caricature and if you learn how to draw the figure you will have an easier time when you start to animate.

  3. Muito bom isso, hein Cleuzo! Eu concordo plenamente contigo a respeito de life drawing e quick sketches. Esse último é o que eu mais gosto de fazer, quando eu vou para algum parque ou praça de alimentação. Realmente ajuda muito.
    Muito bom os desenhos!

  5. Is there any way you could record one of your life drawing sessions? That would be an enourmous help, your drawings really capture the essence.
