View Full Version : Anatomy Process: "Figure Drawing" Two-Part Study Covers; gesture, light, rendering

Hello all. It has been a little bit since I last posted.
I didnít want my next round of posts to just be images I have done. I have been trying to get some tutorials together that would be beneficial to everyone.
So, I am going to be posting a new tutorial up every couple of days. These I have written for my classes, but they are for anyone who wants to learn. Each tutorial has a walk through of a 6 step procedure, and then I make comments on what I have done for this particular image in the tutorial.
Then in the back of the tutorial, I have extra info. Each tutorial will have extra info.
Be patient. If the first few topics are not what you are looking for, eventually a topic will come up. I teach many classes, so it may be a while before I get to info you might be struggling to find.
I hope these are beneficial to all, I am trying to make them as easy as possible to read and understand.
The only thing you will be lacking in these procedures is an instructor to help you with yours. I am giving what all information I can to help increase your awareness of the many facets art has, and you have to tackle in art.
Take care, if you like, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, or you have any critiques on the tutorials. I want to know what you are thinking also. It will help me write better tutorials. Save your suggestions for other types of tutorials. I am too swamped currently to tackle many sorts of tutorials. As I said, subjects will be appearing at random from now on, something is bound to come up you may need help with.
Thank you and happy artingÖ.

Hello again. I have time to post one more, then off for a few. If for any reason these crash, can someone else post the images for others to get to?
Thanks again, and I hope these help.

I like the idea of using contour lines and lines to connect the limbs so things are comprehensively built up. You provide a good strategy to work from the inside out that helps in observation of how everything fits together as a whole. Also, since shading is one of my prime areas for study, I appreciate the idea to start with a general tone that's uniform throughout the whole figure, then build up values from there.

this was alot of help.

Thank you for this, it's a great help for artists in all stages!
It helped me specially in the pencil management how the usage of the full side of the pencil can be very handy for bigger areas even in the human form, managing my pencil to add in volume to a shape has always been a strugle for me, this tutorial was such a burst of inspiration and reference!
Hopefully I will get the handle of adding the correct shadows to my works, this tutorial was very well explained and there is no missing information in it, i love the way you discribe it into steps then add your own "way" of explaining it very usefull and quite certainly will clear a few heads!
If i find anything that might help on your future tutorials I will be sure to give you a message, but so far nothing missing.
You helped me tons!

I used to randomly blot in shades and draw without establishing an outline, now I know not to do that lol.
