Notification of New Open Figure Drawing Workshops / + TUTORIALS - SUBSCRIBE HERE!


Anandpg’s models are now available on Gnomonology! Click previous link or image below to be taken to Anandpg’s area of the site:


[left]Anand works as a Senior Modeler in Ittina Animation Studios, Bangalore, India, and also gives 3d modeling lessons at Takshaa, the animation academy affiliated to Ittina. He holds a BFA degree with specialization in sculpture from the College of Fine Arts, Trivandrum, India.
Big congrats to Anand, this is really deserved! :slight_smile: [/left]


[left]BODYWORLDS 3 contacted me about this great opportunity for artists - originally these sessions were going to be shorter but they were kind enough to listen to my suggestion to lengthen each session to 4 hours each:

"Attached is info on the Artist Nights that we'll be hosting at the BODY
WORLDS 3 exhibit at the California Science Center, [b]Wed., July 23 and Thurs.,
July 31 -- both sessions are 5:00-9:00 p.m.[/b]

During these sessions, artists and students (age 18+) are invited to sketch
the exhibition's human anatomy specimens alongside live figure drawing
models. There's a $2-off discount for each night, making each admission
$16.95, and we'll have free mini-posters for people that attend both nights."

Be advised that parking is about $4 in cash.

Not so much an announcement for a Workshop, but I thought that this would be of interest. I’ve created a blog for the forum for those with an interest but not necessarily the time to keep up with the posts on the Anatomy Forum. Here I’ll be highlighting some of the good work that is posted to the forum, along with Anatomy related information that you may find interesting. Check it out and subscribe for updates! Happy New Year! :slight_smile:

Imaginative Figure Workshop #001: Self Portrait As A Creature

Join in!!! :bounce:


Hey everyone,

I’m extending the deadline for the IFW #001 to next Thursday, Feb. 19, 2009 which gives everyone an extra week to work on and polish up their entries for the Workshop.

Please ONLY POST YOUR BEST WORK to the Workshop thread, and not multiple WIPs with very few changes. I’m removing the posting limit which didn’t seem to work for the Workshop format (hey, we’re human) :slight_smile: but kindly respect that the Workshop has a large group and only so many key WIP images are necessary to post before your final.

Thank you to everyone who has participated so far, there have really been some amazing entries!
