    Drawing from a Live Model

    Dont Talk to the Model While Drawing

    This includes talking with other students or moving to another seat,

    activities which should be limited to breaks. Not only are such

    distractions rude, they cut into the valuable time with the model(which students are paying for).

    Requests for Poses

    ask during breaks, not when the model is already in a pose

    making a Drawing!

    Three Ovals - Head, Ribcage, Pelvis

    The influence of the two separate ovals is very important! With lateral

    bending in the spine, the angle of the ribcage can be dramatically

    different from the angle of the pelvis, causing compression on one side,

    and stretching on the other side when bending and twisting.

    Showing projectiono Circle the pivot points on the

    projecting body parts at the properangle.

    *** Tilted joints should turn intoellipses!

    o Connect the two circles withstraight lines. The stick is now thecenter line, defining the shortestdistance between pivot-points inthe joints.

    o Suppress the hidden side of the far

    end circle to indicate that the fullcircle is the projecting end. If anattaching body part sits in front ofthe projecting side of the cylinder,then you need to lose the fullcircle, like you see at the elbows.

    Cross Contour Lines

    Cross-contour lines describe an object's horizontal or cross-contours rather than its vertical edge (side to side rather

    than up and down). They emphasize an object's volume.Saturday, December 1, 2012

    Proportions used in figure drawing

    o An average person isgenerally 7-and-a-half headstall (including the head).

    o An ideal figure, used whenaiming for an impression ofnobility or grace, is drawn at 8heads tall.

    o An heroic figure, used in theheroic for the depiction of godsand superheroes, is eight-and-a-half heads tall. Most of theadditional length comes from abigger chest and longer legs.

    How you choose to continue isup to you obviously the most

    helpful tool in refining the

    figure is direct observation of

    the model.

    **Remember the differences

    b/w male and female bodies

    men are more squared-off and

    generally have broader

    shoulders.

    Pivot Points The bones articulate with each other

    within joint capsules. There areimaginary centers of movement insidethe joints called pivot points.

    It is much easier to think about pivotpoints than trying to decipher and drawthe external view around the joints.

    This canprovide

    enormous

    assistance

    when you

    want to

    organize a

    confusing

    gesture pose.

    Foreshortening occurs

    when an object appearscompressed when seen

    from a particular viewpoint,and the efect of

    **foreshortening dealswith overlapping of

    forms, compiled onebehind the other in asuccession of steps.

    Revisiting Bomeisler s five skill

    sets for observational drawing

    ***you should be observingwhat it is youre drawing

    at least 75% of the time.

    o the perception of edges usingline or contour drawing,

    o the perception of spaceswithin a drawing through the

    use of negative spaceo the perception of the

    relationship of angles andproportions also known assighting,

    o the perception of lights andshadows using light logic,o and the perception of the

    whole, or gestalt, whichincorporates the previousfour perceptual skills.

    The most important thing to consider whenever you

    are drawing clothing or any type of fabric is the

    direction the fabric is going to be pulled. Folds are

    caused wherever the fabric is being draped or

    stretched.

    Generally, you shade away from the fold lines or in

    the valleys - any places that a shadow would be cast;

    and the highlight appears where light bounces off

    the hills made by the raised folds.
