Bill Buchman will be giving a one day workshop in Pasadena on the 18th of October at the Learning and Product Expo http://www.learningproductexpo.com/pas/splash.html at the Pasadena Conference Center with a beautiful model.
Bill Buchman sent me a copy of the DVD that he made. He demonstrates a variety of techniques for drawing the figure. He shows how to approach drawings from line, forms, curves, outlines, negative space and includes the use of many media.
He does this by showing a model in a pose, then shows how he draws the model using each of the techniques. The camera looks over his shoulder as he draws and shows occasional closeups.
He has done a lot of drawing and thought about it and he brings all his experience to the DVD. He is currently working on a book.
What you will get out of looking at this DVD is not only an understanding of different approaches to figure drawing but more importantly he demonstrates that drawing the figure is great fun.
