Haha yeah, it's great to practice it every now and again. Thanks! I usually use a reference of either myself or friends to do quick things like this so I don't have to think about much other than getting my point across. Used to do a really fun exercise when I was in college where I would sit someone in front of me and then would draw what they looked like from the opposite angle. That one was tons of fun. XDD
That does sound fun! Yeah, I need to do more live figure drawing stuff. There's actually parties in SF at venues where we do crazy live drawing.. the models are usually burlesque dancers that dress up all crazy (although once it was a roller derby team). That's fun enough to make me want to brave the crowds and do some drawing.
It is! Oh wow; you should totally do that! I bet something like that is fantastic to draw to. I think this year I'm going to take a sketchbook to Ren Faire and sit in different spots during the shows and draw them all haha.
You definitely can and they add so much to the model's expression in my opinion. Haha yeah I've had a few people label it as a fetish but I really just enjoy their expressive nature just like someone's smile or a look in their eye. I think it's the same kind of thing just through a different outlet on the body.
Ah yeah I have a few friends that don't like that either. I really think it's expressive like the way the skin wrinkles in the face and hands but that might be an artist thing or just personal preference; I have no idea. XDDD
Whenever I see pictures Of feet, I can always feel mine. With the movement in them and the wrinkles of folding kin, yeah its strange but to make a long story short, I can really basically feel the texture and movement of the feet. :I And man...err...woman...do you draw feet good.
