Pr1 Proportions: Check and Log

Have you managed to make a complete statement in the time?

The body is not complete for the two minute poses but mostly for the longer ones there in at least one line to depict the body elements. Some of the 20 min poses I was able to make several drawings in the time. There where two models in this class which was brilliant. If  just one I’m sure I could get the basic info down in two mins.

How well have you captured the characteristics of the pose?

I think I have captured the characteristics of the poses ok.

Do the proportions look right? 

Over all I am pleased. It came quite easily in this class. I was really feeling the shapes. The last class I went to I struggled a lot more. This time I worked on A3, then on A1. What a difference it makes. What might be a small incorrectness on A3 or smaller becomes a large and noticeable one on the larger papers. Obvious really! Some thing to be aware of in future.

I can see I need to work on heads and faces form these drawings. In the Graphite drawing of model sitting,view frontal, 15 min pose the trunk on the body is too long. The trunk is in three parts and she has an extended abdomen like an insect!

I can see looking at these that care to get the width right on foreshortened limbs is critical to there successes. Otherwise they appear shrunken.


Left side – is the calf and foot foreshortened correctly? I love the shape of the knee, calf and foot (toes to be added increasing length a little). It’s a shame I ran out of time to see if it would have balanced correctly once the other leg was put down.
