Took a break last night from working in the computer to do some quick sketch figures. I found a website that has timed images of figures that is a bit of a fix for not having the time to go to a figure drawing class. If you are interested here is the site:

A big concept to work through when drawing from the model or inventing poses from your imagination is how rhythms work through the body. When I begin a drawing the thinking is very abstract, because I am searching for the total of what is happening. The first step in the drawing is to really feel this rhythm and try to capture it and have lines move in and out of one another.
If you look at the drawing with the red lines over it - I tried to show how lines flow from one to another and no line stand alone - they all relate to one another in some way. So what you maybe drawing in a hand - may actually relate to the foot, etc. This figure was drawn from imagination just to illustrate this idea.
All of these figures were drawn to emphasize this rhythm idea - I always try to see the movement in its biggest form before starting to break ideas down into smaller movements.
