Its been a couple of months since we started studying figure
with Prof. Custode. He has taught us different techniques
that involve charcoal, watercolor or ink. It is a very enjoyable
experience to wake up during the morning and draw the human
figure. Custode's is an interesting character himself. It is impossible
to predict what he is going to say in class and his demos are really
interesting to watch.
It is mandatory for us to keep a journal with studies of specific
body parts. This is probably one element of the class that will
help us grow faster as artists.
I believe that studying the human figure for the us
in Illustration is very important. Drawing a human figure
makes what we are trying to convey in our image
more human, and we are trying to communicate to a
human person of course.
