24 – COPYING OTHER ARTISTS WORK

So Free Art Podcast Episode 24 - Copying Other Artists Work, with Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

This lil episode it’s all about copying … not the naughty kind, but the one that’s a good drawing exercise to adopt, because Copying Other Artists Work is a Fun way to Play and Learn at the same time; stick some music on, and you can get lost for hours :)

I talk about some of the reasons why I love copying other artists work, like how you don’t really see something until you try to draw it, how other artists work can inspire and motivate, and how by studying other artists work, you not only find out who they are, but also who you are too.

The following examples are the three sketches I talk about on the podcast –

ImagineFX Sketchbooks Vol 3 – This is the sketchbook I flick through on the podcast and sketched the three sketches above from …, well, I have vol 4, but I believe they are all pretty much the same just different covers :) This is only £5 with free UK Postage … absolute bargain. I highly recommend it; full of so many inspiring sketches.
