This article continues the series on adding story, emotion and feeling to your drawings and paintings. Making my work more meaningful is something I've been working on for a while and continue to practice and develop every time I sit down to draw or paint.

In this 2 part video video series, I will share 4 more tips and techniques that I personally use and have developed over the last year. The first 2 tips are covered in Part 1 below.

To demonstrate how I apply these techniques, I draw a figure study of a Thai boxer. Instead of describing the technical aspects of the drawing, I talk more about the philosophy and thought process I have when trying to tell a story with the drawing instead of just trying to copy the reference.  Along with the video, I have a full text breakdown with process images and a high-resolution handout for your reference.
