  • 10 action steps for all artists and creatives
  • What to say when employers want your work for free
It is at 9pm eastern time on Jan 21st (tomorrow!) and you can register for free by going to this link.

We will also be having a portfolio review session with a few pros in animation and illustration on January 30th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at the Cincinnati Public Library Main Branch, room 3A (on the third floor)

In case it's helpful, the address of the library is:

A model at your beck and call- Updated

Posemaniacs- I went to Christina Wald's class at NKU last week and had a nice time- we were talking about drawing and gesture drawing and one of the students mentioned this website- I checked it out and it looks pretty useful.

There are timed poses that you can use to practice gesture drawing at home, and the figures are flayed so you can see their musculature.

Do you have any drawing reference sites that you like to use?
