Posevember – Figure Drawing Challenge

#Posevember

For this 30 day figure drawing challenge, we are challenging you to sketch a figure, every day throughout November.

By drawing a body pose every day, you will quickly become familiar with figure drawing proportions

posevember figure drawing challenge

Concentrate on the shape of the body (and tones if you have time), and don’t worry about colour.

Try and capture the line of action of the pose.

You might want to work on gesture drawing to capture poses quickly or you could go into more detail if you want.

Resources

We have put together a list of resources where you can find figure pose reference to draw

Rules

  1. Have fun!!!
  2. Please keep your figure drawings tasteful! We don’t want to make anyone blush!

Figure Drawing Challenge Guidelines

  1. You can use whatever medium you like for drawing your figures, but we would suggest graphite or charcoal if you have any

Tips to make the drawing challenge more manageable

  • Keep it simple. You don’t need to create a polished figure drawing here. Just aim to get the figure drawing proportions correct.
  • Take a look at this post if  you are looking for pose reference for the challenge

Sketchbook ideas

  • Why not overlap some of your figures.
  • You could make your drawings on old books, newspapers or music sheets

Optional

At the end of the challenge, why not make a little video (up to three minutes long) of your figure drawings and send it to us? Or just email us some of your favourite ones. With your permission, we may even feature your work on our site

And if you know any other artists who might also enjoy this drawing challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
