Sketching a Wooden Mannequin to Prep to Draw Myself in Comics

As I begin to work on my graphic memoir, I decided I wanted some more practice drawing myself from several points of view, walking.

So I returned for a bit to what I have the most practice with:  sketching an object "live."

A wooden artist's mannequin helped me think about it in new ways.  It keeps me working from a 3D model and it doesn't complain about having to hold a mid-step position the way a human would!

Next, I set the mannequin on the floor and drew it from above, because that's a point of view I want to use in my comic.  And that's something I never get to see!

All good practice.
