A Drawing Worth Watching

This Flash drawing demo is by far one of the coolest things I’ve seen online in quite a while. And it is so simple.

I love the way it reveals the importance of the underlying skeleton, skin, and garments when drawing the human figure. Each stage is wonderful to watch, and it is sort of magical to see how the artist both builds a new layer while erasing the parts of the old layer that no longer need to be visible — but still need to be “there.”

I’ve shared this with a professor in our art department, and I look forward to hearing his reaction.

Makes me wish I could draw.
