The Aesthetics of FigureDrawing
By: Missa Kes
Figure drawing is the nude study of the human figure
The basis for all drawing with the human form
The typical mediums used are charcoal, pencil, pen, brush
And ink, and pastels.
During our research we found there are many styles of
Figure drawing. We decided to compare the different
Aestheics of these styles. We had four separate books on
The topic: Dynamic Figure Drawing, The Art of Figure
Drawing, Realistic Figure Drawing, and Figure drawing
For all its worth.
Dynamic Figure Drawing
This style of drawing is the most
unreal style that we studied.
It emphasizes the muscular
Structure of the human body in
A disproportionate and idealized way.
The Art of Figure Drawing
This style of figure drawing is much
More loose and proportionate to the
Actual human body. The rendering is
Realistic but still sketchy.
Realistic Figure Drawing
This style is lighter and more
blurred. And the figure has
smoother, rounder edges. The
highlights are created by a light
pencil, unlike the others
examples. The highlights
contribute to the roundness of
Figure Drawing For All ItsWorth
This style and picture are done
primarily in charcoal. The high
contrast gives it a great sense of
depth and 3-dimension. Allowing
the woman to appear realistic, yet
After looking at these different aesthetics of
drawing figures we chose to compare Danicas
figure drawings to the ones we had studied.
Then determined which aesthetic they were
most similar to.
