5 Minute Nudes

December 28th, 2011

NUDITY ALERT
Duh! :)
I have this continuing project that I like to do called 100 Days. The premise is that if you want to get better at anything, do it every day for 100 days. It doesn't matter what you want to get better at: drawing, painting, public speaking, dancing, making love, WHATEVER. Do it for 100 days in a row, even if only for a few minutes, and you can't help but improve. After the 100 days, take a break, try something else, or just do it again, especially if you are trying to improve your love making…

On Twitter, I'm tagging it #100DaysArt because 100days was already being used by another group and the nude drawings were freaking some people out. Speaking of nudes, back to the point. This time around I'm drawing 5 minute nudes. I find that I am not satisfied with my ability to capture the figure quickly, especially a dynamic figure. So I am limiting my time to capture as much detail as possible. The nudes are "figure models" from around the internet. I have found a few good sources such as posespace.com where the nudes are purely artistic and in common everyday poses. I have also come across many other sites that I won't list here, but let me just say "artistic nudes" searches bring up some interesting poses and closeups.

Anyway, just to get the G+ album caught up, I'm posting the first 37. I'll make this a weekly posting so you can track the progress with me. There will be rough spots along the way, but in the end I believe it will make me a better artist.

*Please note the dates written on each one as Google didn't load them in order. If anyone knows how to sort photos in an album, I would LOVE to learn.
