This summer, I finally got around to going to figure drawing sessions at my local art center. I had never done any figure drawing before so I was not quite sure how to start. I took my charcoal and oil paints and I tried to do a painting but the poses were a lot shorter than I thought. After attempting to paint for the first couple of sessions, I realized I needed to focus on drawing first. Once I focused solely on drawing, I think I was able to convey the figure much better. Below, the pictures are in order from my first figure drawings I made to ones I did with more practice and experience.
