Robert Fawcett on Drawing

“Bob Fawcett always simplified form in his drawings. He once said, “Economy in drawing is essentially the shorthand which develops in the excitement of the fleeting moment. It is the thing seen subjected to editorial exclusion.” However, he tried to avoid slipping into superficiality: “One’s study can be admired for it’s beautiful line, but if that line is not expressing an understanding of the form itself it remains mildly interesting, but empty of content.””

From Drawing the Nude – The Figure Drawing Techniques of Noted American Illustrator Robert Fawcett” by Howard Munce.

Storyboarding is about economy of drawing. Fawcett would have been a great board artist.
