What to Expect:

Learn how the inner structure of the body defines the form of a pose. Understand the structure of a figure through proportions, bones and joints during this online anatomy drawing workshop.

The most important part in a figure drawing is the process of analyzing a pose and understanding the general proportions. In this module we will learn how to build our drawing from the inside, and how to use the knowledge of joint structures and reference points of visible bones to set up the pose on paper.

Topics covered:

    • The basic geometric structure of the human body and its proportions.
    • How to simplify the skeleton to find the reference points we need.
    • The way joints and limbs behave in different conditions.

The human body is a complicated machine. G Caruso guides you through its secrets in a fun and understandable way. Build a solid understanding of the body’s structure developed through practice.

This workshop is the first module in the Figure Drawing and Painting Workshop Series. This is a great place to start if you are a beginner or someone more experienced that would like to build a formal foundation.
