If you have ever wanted to draw the human figure this is for you! An extensive four week workshop that teaches you what you NEED to know about drawing figures.
Section One: Primary action lines
Learn how to simplify poses into one simple line that captures the movement and gesture of the figure.
Section Two: Action lines
These lines will include other main body parts that help support, and add to, the primary action line.
Section Three: Axis Lines
We will focus on the two main axis lines which ate the pelvis and shoulders. This will help understand important angles and eliminate stiff looking figures.
Section Four: Torso
We will use two ovals to simplify the torso then fuse them together to capture the mid-section of the pose.
Section Five: Center Lines
This line is designed to help determine the vertical axis of the torso. We will also discuss important anatomical landmarks that will add volume to the torso area.
Section Six: Legs
Learn how to divide the legs into basic shapes and determine the direction of the lower and upper areas.
Section Seven: The Feet
Perhaps one of the more difficult and often misinterpreted areas of the human figure. Learn how to simplify the feet into basic shapes and how to draw the illusion of stability.
Section Eight: Upper Torso
Learn the basic forms of the upper back and torso. Discover how you you can easily use three-to-four shapes to easily draw this area. We will also look at axis and direction of certain parts in order to capture more dynamic drawings.
Section Nine: The Arms
Identify the key landmarks, curves and angles of the upper and lower arm. When you are finished with this section you will no longer struggle with drawing arms.
Section Ten: The Hands
A complete breakdown of the fronts and backs of the hands. Discover how to simplify this problematic body part into easy geometric shapes. This lesson will make your hands more three-dimensional and dynamic.
Section Eleven: The Head & Neck
As with other body parts we will simplify these into basic geometric shapes. Then discover the important features and landmarks that help determine the best approach from drawing these areas. We will look at various perspectives to help understand how the neck and head are drawn in poses.
Section Twelve: Light & Shadow
Discover powerful techniques that infuse light and shadow into your drawing. This will add a realistic, three-dimensional appearance to your figures.
