In this module, you will develop proficiency in drawing the human form from life using the sight-size method. Considerations of establishing the pose, lighting the figure, and composition will be discussed.
With drawings done in pencil, charcoal and chalks, you will have particular concern for accuracy in line and form, chiaroscuro (the use of strong contrasts between light and dark), and gesture, with an organic unity devoid of superfluous details. Finally, you will render the form.
You can choose to study from one week to one month or longer. The average figure pose is two weeks, long enough to allow ample time for guidance as you develop an understanding of the drawing techniques.
