last year at CTN Animation Expo, I went to Alex Woo's lecture on gesture. It was AWESOME! I have been looking at his drawings for a while and it was nice to learn from him at the lecture. I am planning to take his class at schoolism next term, so I tried to draw in his style.
This time I really focus on the gesture, flow and story more than the anatomy. It really helps my eye to animate afterwards.

Finally picking up my sketchbook, pencil and run for some life sketching.
I always have this question on how to balance life and work. There are so many things I want to do, but I just couldn't do EVERYTHING within 24hr/day!
Not until recently I read a book on self-discipline. I do have the discipline to work, but I'm lack of prioritizing all the things I have to do and stick to a schedule for myself.
I have been so busy with work, school and house chore that I stopped life drawing for a long time.
Reason why I haven't been life drawing (with model) for so long is that there is no life drawing place near where I lived!! (Though there is one in Markham, but they mainly do long poses, which isn't what I'm looking for.) The second closest one is at Seneca @ York, which is an hour bus ride. TSA @ downtown Toronto is flexible but it is a 1.5-2 hour of commute (each way) for me.
Still, I decided to schedule a time for myself to draw again.
Life drawing is my way to escape all the exhausting things I have to deal with in life.
Plug my ears with favourite music and go lost in the fantasy world!
Draw with a back story in mind.
Who is this person? What is he/she doing? What emotion he/she is in?
