Figure Drawing

The figure is probably the most difficult subject matter for artists. I can't say it's easy for me. Here are two drawings, one carefully drawn from a one hour pose, and the other quickly rendered from a ten minute pose. When I draw the figure, I'm concerned not only with getting an accurate rendition of what is in front of me, but also with the composition on the page. Skills for figure drawing include ability to render the human form with accuracy in anatomy and proportion. Artists study for years to be able to get it right.
