Life Drawing – shapes at different angles

Today we approached drawing limbs and shapes from awkward angles, such as head on, and how it would be possible to create them in a 3D way. Michael showed us this through drawing caterpillars. Drawing circles on top of each other allowed us to see the depth in the arm, the thickening and thinning of muscles for the legs and arms.

At the end, we focused on a section of interest on the model. With Robert, I chose his left knee and leg. It was quite hard due to the angle, however Michael showed me how to box out the knee with shading to give a more 3D look.

As you can see, my first attempts were off. However, once Michael stood with me for a few minutes, I started to get better.
