Drawing, painted using my Bodies neural network.
Here’s a jumble of head studies from yesterday. I was drawing from the Quickdraw page at BodiesinMotion.photo – 16 frames, zoomed into just the heads, randomly composed on the page as they appeared.
Here’s a timelapse of the sessions:
Another morning drawing session from the BiM Scan library.
I’ve been drawing quite a bit recently (more than normal). The catalyst for the renewed practice has been the Bodies in Motion site (bodiesinmotion.photo). I’ve spent a lot of time over the last couple years putting the site together as the resource for artists, and now I am having great playing with it myself. If you are interested in figure drawing, gesture drawing or animation, you should definitely browse the Artwork section of BiM, there are some amazing pieces there by a number of really talented artists.
Planning to post more from my morning drawing sessions as/when they become available, so check back.

Anatomy study from Bodies in Motion.
The Summer session of my Anatomy for Artists online course is coming up on June 23rd. In this course I cover ALL the anatomy that goes into making an ecorche drawing like the one above. In fact, ecorche drawings are the primary exercises for the eight week course and by the end you will almost certainly have levelled-up enough to create a detailed ecorche study like this one. If you have an interest in improving as a figurative artist, join me for an intense but fun 8 weeks of sutdy this summer!
