The Value of Drawing from Life

Dynamic Posing for Gesture Drawing


We also have created this DVD called Dynamic Posing for Gesture Drawing vol. 1.  It's a great tool for all artists wanting to practice and improve their skills in drawing the human figure in the confort of their own home.  It contains 2 hours of clothed models, male and female, posing in "short pose format.

"It's always better to draw from a live model in a classroom setting, but this is the next best thing if you do not have a those other things readily available to you.  Whether you are a seasoned professional or a beginner, it's a great way to warm up every day and keep your skills sharp by gesture drawing to these models."  - Scott T. Petersen

Included in this DVD: are 4 separate models posing for 15 to 30 seconds during the first hour and the second hour the posing is extended to 1 min. per pose.
