After a busy start to the summer, I am finding time to develop sequences from our most recent Bodies in Motion photoshoot (BiM VI). Here are a few of the first images. I am falling in love with the flow of fabric and the shapes it makes when directed by graceful movement. Sequences going up soon at www.bodiesinmotion.photo
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.
Using the BiM Scan library as reference. Final drawing here.

Anatomy and dynamic figure scans launching June 20th at BodiesinMotion.photo.
Been very busy recently getting Bodies in Motion > Scans ready to launch. I am personally cleaning up ALL the scans to preserve the form and anatomy. Also lighting and rendering them to make beautiful, informative drawing/sculpting/anatomy reference for all of you. Compositing today. Sharing this screenshot so you know I haven’t been idle the last couple months.
Scans will be coming very soon to www.BodiesinMotion.photo (weeks!). Launch date will be announced next week.
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!
Form study from Bodies in Motion, about a 1 1/2 coffee drawing. And morning two below, a few other poses from the same Motion.
