quick sketch motivations

Here is a video I made regarding the art of quick sketch and some ways to set yourself up for a good session.  Motivation is the name of the game and I have several illustrated in this video.  The video is sped up so as not to bore you, and I apologize for the breathing of the camera.  When the video footage is sped up it is really obvious that I am wearing a chest camera.
Thank you for watching.  Pass this on if you find this instruction useful. and thank you again.

A new entry, woah!

Hello, just adding a new entry here to the page for once.  This is also on Lemenaid but I figure since I am trying to resuscitate the blogs I would put this on both.
I will bring up more entries here within the next few months as I link all my pages together and hopefully stay on top of the blogs in the near future.

A Way To Figure Invention From a Photo

Hello, first post in a while and I wanted to make it a descent one to start with again. 
Here is the photo that I am working with.
This is a photo of Peter Hewitt.  I do not currently know who shot this photo but I will find out soon.

So, what I want to do is take this photo and find a spot somewhere else next to impossible to take this image.

I am going to put the camera under the board or behind it as if this was a clear tunnel.

First thing to do is learn the original pose so we can proceed forward with more working confidence.  So study the image and do a drawing from its perspective, in this case I am using figure construction methods to help me determine the volume presented before me.

Here is the drawing that I did a study of to start the process.

Note that I have analyzed the volumes cylindrically and I have also found the camera angle from which the photo was taken.

Next we will break down the image into what would be termed an orthographic view.  WHY?  A good practice to know …
