toys R me

Here are four Britain’s cowboy figures, three views of a horse, and various robots enjoying some ‘circle time’. Toy figures are great sketching subjects; they’ve already been simplified as part of their miniaturisation, helping you see the key shapes and structures, with less distracting detail. You can also get the angle and composition exactly how you want, they don’t move, and the better made ones are useful practise for drawing figures in the ‘real world’ (where I often see cowboys, horses, and robots).

    These drawings are so charming, and what a wonderful idea for next time I visit the nephews! “Bring your favourite toys out,” I will say, “and lets draw them!” One of the boys is a very keen artist and we send each other drawings back and forth.
