Man Standing

by PCONTE, November 30th 2020 © 2020 PCONTE

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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

Figure Study: 10 min


10 minutes may not be enough time to lay out an anatomical structure drawing at this stage of your progress.

I would take as much time as you need to make sure your night (head to foot) and the length of limbs, as well as joint placement is what it should be before moving on.

if that takes 10 minutes be assured you will get faster, if it takes 30 minutes then do that.

but going slower and training your muscle memory and your brain as to what is correct is really important.

Also draftsmanship is important, line control and having the ability to be decisive with your lines will come with knowledge and repeating simple excersises. Stratight lines, curved lines, drawing from the shoulder, arcs and circles as well as 3 dimensional shapes, cubes, spheres, cylinders, etc.

Wow! That's a very greater job you did on this above bodily pose, PCONTE, if anybody knows what art education wants in the past, present, and future, it's Line of Action.

However, I've got one little suggestion: I really, really love where you're going on the foreshortening on this front shot's foot, but why don't you please work it out more, on your next 10 minute figure drawing????

The reason why you'd do this is as a result, your life drawing's foreshortening, body exaggeration, and bone structure will be strengthened, in the whole concept, as far as the broadest strokes are concerned.

Hope it's been completely and totally useful.


Okay first off, I see you did a it of shading in the torso era, I would totally skip that.
Also really nice job on his left hand.
Now for some general proportion, the legs are too short. In fact legs are usually REALLY long, think about it like this, the thigh is usually nearly as long as the whole torso.
Also look out for which way you curve the forms, the thigh has the curve the wrong way around.
And also the arms have really weird proportions in themself and compared to the body.
