25 min Body Pose

by Thinkingisart, July 18th 2020 © 2020 Thinkingisart

Done as part of a 1 hour class.

My current goal is to study human anatomy through figure drawing nude models. However, I have a lot of trouble drawing the head with the proper proportions. It either looks too big compared to the body or too unrealistic due to the shape. The black X's are the body parts (head, hands and feet) I had trouble drawing. I'm planning on improving on drawing the hands and feet via this site, however I'm not sure which route I should take in order to draw the head correctly. Any kind of constructive criticism and comment is welcome. Thank you!

I think you got a lot in this pose down well! Have you considered that drawing the hands, feet and head were difficult because of the constraints of your canvas? There was never enough room to include them, so you didn't get the opportunity to get them right in the first place.

How about drawing on a larger piece of paper where you give yourself more room so that you only have to focus on the proportions, and not worry about the allotted space?
