I’ve been lucky to have been licensing my patterns to a range of companies for a number of years and get asked a lot about how I go about approaching companies to license my designs.  

As a freelance surface pattern designer, licensing is the bread and butter of my income. It’s a great source of passive income. You can earn income from work you’ve already created, in multiple markets, globally.  But to get your work licensed you need to be proactive in your approach.

This lecture demonstrates the structure and anatomy of the human leg and hip. Continuing his Anatomy series, master figure artist Charles Hu begins this lecture with a review of the primary skeletal structures of the hip and leg. After discussing the primary structures and proportions, Charles begins by breaking down the primary muscle groups; starting with lateral and anterior views, then to posterior and lateral. Charles covers the lower leg muscles and demonstrates how to construct the knee, which is a challenge to many figurative artists. Working from different examples of photo reference, key structural landmarks are identified while also deconstructing the contributions of anatomy, gesture and rhythm to the motion of the underlying skeletal structure. The mechanical and structural understanding that Charles shares in this title is an essential foundation for producing believable and dynamic figure drawings, either from life or from the imagination.
