Think. Plan. Create... One Portfolio Piece At Time.

Section Overview:

This section is all about figure drawing! Throughout the course, you will be drawing a lot of different examples of figures. If you plan on going into post-secondary school, you will be drawing and painting the figure for all four years of the degree. You may just need to do a figure study in a studio class or find yourself doing character development for a book illustration.

Understanding how to draw the figure and the proportions are going to help you be more successful. These lectures will help you understand the 8 headed figure, the proportions of the face, drawing the hands and feet, and foreshortening.

These concepts will help you advance your drawing and illustration skills.
