Hey everyone! This class is essentially a general overview of figure drawing and how to get started. Figure drawing is a very broad subject and theres a number of ways that anyone could approach it. What I wanted to do is create a basic guide of what I feel helped me the most when I began studying the figure many years ago.
We'll go over how to get started blocking-in and measuring, how to use anatomical landmarks as a guide, and essentially simplify the figure into basic elements so that it doesn't feel so daunting if you're just starting out!
This is a bit of a longer class as I wanted to do my best to be thorough. Even still, there was no way I could cover everything, so look at this as an overview to begin with. I will hopefully do follow up classes breaking down 'parts' of the body afterwards, or develop alternate figure classes based on your feedback. Thank you for watching!
