I’m thrilled by the effect that teaching my Dynamic Figure Drawing class has had on my drawing of the figure. One aspect of drawing dynamic figures that is a little different is the skill of taking the proportion and detail of a portrait and translating it down to a small head on a dynamic figure. I’m finding that an approach that uses shading with some suggested detail seems to work quite well. These are 4 little studies that show the face from different angles.
