I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.....

Warm-ups to start the day and then warm-downs to end the day. Genius I tells ya! GENIUS! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

*Ahem* Right. But yeah, this is warm-down 1, and Imma be doing these and warm-ups more often. It's a good way to draw from life and photos to replenish the ol' mental library. In this case to put in the ol' noggin what's not there yet, which is how to draw women! :)

When I was in high school, my art teacher Linda L. told me not to look at things when I drew because it was cheating. So for years I would draw from my head, and it took me a little longer to know what I was drawing. I'm telling you this in case someone gives you the same bogus advice, or gives you a hard time about it. Drawing from life and photos is a legit way to build your mental library, so you can draw what you know from your head, when you're ready. :)

Hope y'all digs!

More warm-ups and warm-downs:

Really cool drawing, I'm diggin' it (the whole warm miniseries btw). Nice little description on this one too, warming up is great, especially if it's girlies. I'm sure cold colours would not work. Wonder what photo you used for the girl on the couch; cool pose.
Keep this series up man!

What kind of art teacher told you to draw without a resource?! That's crazy. How are you supposed to learn how to draw otherwise. I'm sorry but that's madness.

My art teacher's motto is the exact opposite: "You're only as good as your resources."

Im glad I always disregarded advice that didnt make sense to me even if, supposedly, the person giving it knew more than me. Cause if someone had said to me what your teacher said to you, I wouldve been like "...uh huh...right" and then just gone and done whatever I wanted to.
