John Watkiss figure drawing and anatomy demo sketches

When I took John's figure drawing classes he would, one person at a time, sit down and demonstrate concepts he was explaining, on each person's sheet of paper.
My friends and I would photocopy and share amongst ourselves our bits of scribbled wisdom.
I have now put them together in a YouTube video/slide show.
If improving figure drawing is your thing, I would suggest watching this at full screen and set the speed to .25 and use the space bar to pause and resume play a lot.
It's REALLY great stuff...

60 quick pose figure drawings

Quick pose figure drawings (1-3 minutes per pose). If you can squeeze in some quick blocking, then a decent, lively contour, without missing head, hands or feet, you're on to a winner! All from live models during 20 minute sessions of either 1's, 2's or 3's (minute poses), followed by 10 minute breaks.
Gives the old gray matter a bit of a workout!

I'd suggest full screen on decent size monitor.
