What is Life Drawing?
Life drawing, also known as figure drawing or gesture drawing, is the drawing of the human form in various poses and levels of detail. It can range from highly detailed and anatomically proportional drawings to loose and expressive sketches to gesture drawings, which shows the simple form, action and pose in a short amount of time.
