Dynamic Figure Drawing

In this class we are learning to look at the figure as two primary shapes: the chest and the pelvis.  By having symbols for these 2 regions we are able to create a figure more easily. And these symbols can then be manipulated in perspective.  That’s a long winded to say that once you really come to understand what the chest and pelvis look like from various angles you can fairly easily create truly dynamic figures.

In this study it’s very instructive to look at the shape of a head from behind at this angle.  It’s not something we see very often.
