|Wood Man Practice Drawing|
Today I was teaching a class on drawing and we took our wood man model, set him on an upturned glass jar and drew him in a sitting pose.
This drawing took about twenty minutes. I used only an hb pencil.
I do a quick rough sketch by marking the location of the joints and drawing connecting structures between the joints. This makes an outline and then I go over it again and again making corrections and adding shading for volume. It was only part of the class if we had more time I would make a lot of little changes with the shadows and clean up the lines.
These are great ways to learn the basic human figure and cheaper than paying for a class. I recommend it.
