Gesture/Figure Drawing Websites

ibelievepracticemakesperfect:

I always see posts for gesture and figure drawing sites, but never any sort of masterlist. There is probably some I missed, so if you have some I missed feel free to add them!
  • The Drawing Script - This one is my personal favorite! It has nifty categories for animals (Big Cats and Horses), Hands, Heads (one for both males and females). It also has a force grayscale tool, and a fill to window option.
  • ArtsyPoses - Another good one! This one seems pretty new, and has a much sleeker design then most other sites. All the photos are nice looking, even though it may have less then some older sites. Works on Ipods, and Ipads.
  • Pixelovely - Most similar to Drawing Script, but instead of having model categories. It has class options! The classes are really great. Also, has a tool for animals only.
  • Posemaniacs - Honestly, I don’t really use this one because the models kinda give me the creeps. The site shows the body’s underlying muscles which can be very useful for some, and also can distract some people. It also has a negative space option!

I hope the list was helpful!
