Day #017 – Fun With a Pencil Part I

As I’ve heard people mention that Andrew Loomis’s book Fun With a Pencil might be better to start on than his figure drawing book I decided to switch it up. I’m going to start working through the book and sketching along the way. In this manner I will practice my drawing, get through the book and solidify what I’ve learned along the way. If you want to download the book yourself it’s available for free at this website.

So here’s the first page of my sketchbook which corresponds closely to the first few pages of the book. I like the idea of breaking down all complicated forms into their simpler components. I can see this being key in progressing further and improving my eye.
