I was feeling out of touch with my creativity a little while ago. I felt like I had to be creating something amazing right then and there or else it wasn't worth it to draw at all. To take myself out of this mindset and away from my drawing desk, I decided to drop in on a figure drawing session happening in town. My girlfriend, Cate, and I made it into a fun date night, too. Cate is my girlfriend. She's an illustrator, too. Check out her website.
Okay, here are the results of my figure drawing session.
It had definitely been awhile since my last figure drawing course in college. I felt rusty and nervous around the other artists in the studio. However, the experience was very gratifying. I had been so wrapped up in my illustration world that I forgot how important it was to just draw. I'm hoping I don't lose sight of that again.
