Advance your understanding of the human figure’s complex set of structures while heightening your ability to draw a figure from observation. This workshop is designed to bridge the gap between standard life drawing practices and anatomical studies of the figure. Working from the model you will systematically draw the figure to fit landmarks within a set proportion system. Simultaneously, you will further your understanding of the figure’s construction by breaking down the major skeletal structures of the figure into geometric concepts while you study how they are posed in space. Emphasis on gesture, balance and proportion will be stressed throughout to aid in the illusion of credibility posed figures. You should leave this workshop with a better understanding of the figure’s proportions and key landmarks, structural concepts, and construction, all to improve your ability to render a figure from life and from memory.
