    • Drawing the HumanDrawing the Human FigureFigure The Four Step Approach TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Figure drawing is one of the most challenging forms of drawing. The figure is constantly changing positions, intensifying the challenge. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • While there are no formulas for drawing a figure, there is a step by step approach of observing that can make figure drawing easier. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • In each step of this process, we’ll be looking for specific relationships in our subject. We’ll use this information to frame our figure and capture accurate proportions. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • The first step is to draw a line from the head to the feet of our subject. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • This will ensure that we are able to get the entire figure within our picture plane. It also allows us to visually “measure” the entire figure. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • The next step is to locate the shoulders and the waist. Draw a line to indicate their locations. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Depending on the posture of the figure, these lines may slant, curve, or be diagonal. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Next, we’ll construct a stick figure based on the bone structure of the subject. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Basic shapes can be used for the joints, hands, feet, and head. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Using the structure that has been created, the contours can be drawn with confidence. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Details and value can be added to finish the drawing. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • This four step approach can be applied to any figure, no matter what position they may be in. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • This four step approach can be applied to any figure, no matter what position they may be in. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • This four step approach can be applied to any figure, no matter what position they may be in. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • This four step approach can be applied to any figure, no matter what position they may be in. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Gesture drawing is a quick approach to drawing the figure. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Drawing in this manner should be loose, without much attention to detail. The goal should be to accurately capture the figure’s proportions and posture in a short amount of time. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Gesture drawings can be used to complete more developed figure drawings. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Foreshortening happens when the figure, or part of the figure is viewed in perspective. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • The same four step approach can be used for any figure or part of a figure that may be viewed in perspective. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Keep in mind, that when foreshortening takes place, extreme size differences that are outside of the realm of typical proportion may be observed in the subject. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
    • Exercises Warm up with several short gesture drawings from observation Draw a few figures seated or with objects in their hands. Draw a more developed drawing (30 minutes) that starts with a loose gesture drawing. TheVirtualInstructor.comTheVirtualInstructor.com
