Demos for in class model drawing!


We start off with drawing through and constructing body forms



Then we get into squash/stretch forms aka forceful shapes


And at the end we get to applied and directional forces. I use the Mike Mattesi book FORCE: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators as a text, I have to hope that some of the info sticks because I only get a week with the model due to all the information we need to go over (Ten weeks of five hours a week is short and I have to teach them perspective from the inside out!). The good news is however that my class got bumped to a 200 level, so that means more model drawing in class starting next fall! A bonus for my students and me!
