Beginner Figure Drawing
Beginner Figure Drawing: Learn To Draw Stunning Poses : Welcome To Beginner Figure Drawing! The ultimate online course for complete beginners that aspire to draw the human figure.
My name is Robert Joyner, and I’m a full-time artist from beautiful Virginia. I’ve been painting and teaching for over 15 years and I’m thrilled to bring this in-depth figure drawing course to you via SkillShare.
This class has been carefully constructed and includes a step-by-step approach that will build confidence without getting overwhelmed. If you can draw a circle, square and rectangle then you are more than qualified to take this course.
Section One: Gesture & Structure
These are the ultimate building block for your drawings. Unlike many figure courses gesture is used in a very unique way. Instead of drawing stick figures we will use it to locate and draw the lovey curves that make up the body. Each pose has many gestures and you will quickly discover how to find them.
Structure is used to add volume and depth to each gesture. This makes the gestures more dynamic and allows you to sculpt each area of the body using simple forms and volumes.
Section Two: Body Parts
This is a complete breakdown of the main body parts including the head, neck, ribcage, waist, pelvis, arms, shoulders, legs and feet. You will learn easy ideas for drawing each part using gesture & structure!
Section Three: Proportions
You will learn to develop a general model for understanding the front, back and profile views. Plus we will discuss some key similarities and differences between male and female bodies.
Section Four: Final Assignment
Here you will put your knowledge and skills to the test. There is a practice reel that includes four poses, each one is six minutes long. To make it even better I will complete the same exact practice reel so you have something to compare your work to!
As you can see this is the perfect lesson plan for beginners! It also includes:
Master’s analysis – throughout the course we will look at some of the Master’s figure drawings, like Michelangelo, Raphael and more, to see how they used the ideas shared in this course in their work.
Hours Of Demos – Each lecture is accompanied with a series of demonstrations where I will use images of models to draw the ideas for you. So, you will see how each main idea can be implemented in a variety of situations and poses.
Resource Images – Ive included all images used in this course including demo images, model images, Master’s analysis images and additional model resources.
Thanks for taking the time to check out this course. I really hope to connect with you on the inside and become a part of your creative journey.
