As with any figure drawing class, we have been drawing from a model to help us understand and learn the basics of human proportion. Along with this we have been drawing a series of movement and “frames” to also help us with our understanding of movement. We start off by drawing a basic form made of a few shapes and lines. This is done to get the basic form and information down quickly and efficiently. After that is completed and we have drawing the whole sequence we can go back and flesh it out.
This is a great exercise for those learning how to draw fluid and lifelike forms as every drawing you complete is another reference in your mind. By adding more and more to your experience bank, you become more knowledgeable and better at your craft in the long run.
