Woman Laying

Done as part of a 3 hour class.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form

Figure Study: 30 min

An improvement overpassed drawings. Good foreshortening. The feet are better. Hands need work. Things are a bit too angular. You are heading in the correct direction. Keep up the good work.


There is something "Henry Moore" about this drawing that I quite like, like it was carved out of a block of stone rather than drawn. There is a solidity to the figure and I can really feel the weight resting on the ground.

Legs, hips, feet, belly, breasts - all are well proportioned and convincing. I see that your goal is working on proportions. Try using your pencil to measure the shoulders and arms in relation to each other and to the torso. The head and hands are blocked in. I'm guessing you ran out time with the pose so I won't comment on them.

I see some potential here! If you have the opportunity to continue with this figure, I'd give it some more time and careful measuring. Great start!
