Gesture Drawing Session at Manifest!

Hi guys!

The folks at the Manifest Drawing Studio are so cool- I emailed them to see if they would be down for hosting a gesture life drawing session that is good for animators- short poses no longer than 10 or 15 minutes as well as short ones, mere minutes (or less!). And they are totally doing it!

Since we animators have such a volume of drawings to get through its really beneficial to be able to draw quickly and capture motion quickly- and this is how you develop that skill.

SO! Come to the session! Show them that animators need access to short poses!

Saturday June 7
11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Cost: $20 ($10 for college and high school students)
(participants still must register in advance or upon arriving at the Drawing Center) 

For info or to register visit the Manifest website!

  1. This is a great idea, Darcy.
    Getting figures down quickly is an essential skill for animators and every other kind of illustrator. Short poses are extremely beneficial exercises and Manifest has an excellent space.
    For $3.33 and hour, this is a particularly great opportunity for students.

    For anyone who does this, my recommendation would be to leave the moleskine at home, buy a handful of soft charcoal pencils and a large cheap newsprint pad, and plan on trashing it!

    These examples in the post are amazing, BTW.
