Sketching and Figure Drawing – the basis of ‘Life’ drawing or ‘Anime’ sketching

with No Comments

This workshop is designed to give you an understanding of the human figure and styles that will translate and enable you to achieve these goals!
You will have a time tested approach to managing the proportions of the figure.
We will get you experienced in working off the cuff – so you can position the figure to be mobile or standing – riding or running.
We will discuss abstraction of the figure to become just a ‘Suggestion’ in your painting.
You can decide the direction from here – anime or reality!
