|Basic "Action Line" sketches|
Suhita introduced me to another concept in action figure drawing: (the Line of Action). In order to capture the essential motion of a figure, she sketches the main motion of the figure immediately without regard for detail. Once the motion or action line is established, she can then bring in the rest of the figure. It all seems a little contrived at first glance, but the concept is seeming to work for me. The above are a few of the few tentative drawings.
Suhita is a frequent blogger and I can recommend you read her postings.
