My teacher (Steven Gaffney) was different from other figure drawing teachers I’ve had because the exercises we did in class were less about drawing everything super accurately(you had to know how to do that already) and more about creating a tactile sense to the drawing.
Like, we were always encouraged to think about the surface we were drawing. Is it smooth or rough? Is it moving away from you or towards you? Imbue the drawing with the feeling of the surface.
Also, after giving me a critique of this pose he said “and I like those…pikachus…”
