Inspirations, Influences, and Aspirations Part 2

The other day I stumbled across this blog and thought I might share. Artist/illustrator Matt Zitman posted a substantial collection of figure drawings. The drawings are much more caricature than our anatomically accurate, academic type drawings. Never-the-less, his drawings are beautiful. There's something really funny about his exaggerations, but he still displays a well rounded understanding of the body. In class, Amy often stresses the importance of exaggerating certain features i.e. curves of the spine, the long axis of the femur etc. Of course Matt takes that to a much greater extreme, but I think his drawings are a good example of really capturing the pose and form of the model. Below are a couple drawings from his blog.
