Pr2 Form: Check and Log

Were you able to maintain a focus on proportion at the same time as creating a sense of weight and 3D form?

For exercise essential shapes it was possible but for exercise essential elements I rushed the proportions stage to get the shading done in time. However I could have taken more time with it as I managed to finish all six drawing in with in the time. Some with a few minute to spare.

Which drawing gives the best sense of the pose and why?


15 min pose. Drawing made between 5-10


I quite like this one. I think the weightiness has worked. E.g the tummy looks heavy and the legs look like they are taking the strain. He did some great and unusual poses this guy. Although the feet are not present I think the stance is accurate, as in he is not slanted or appears to be floating. The shadow from hand to belly are is a bit deceptive. The wall looks slanting towards the mans feet. It was straight. I must have got the angle a bit wrong. The shadow really did travel in this way as the stomach and hand where the closest parts to the wall. I must check negative space between shadow and body to increase accuracy.


Was there any movement or gesture away from the models axis? If so did you manage to identify this and get it in your drawing?

In this drawing (left) he was tipping forwards off the central access using the wall as support. The axis continues up through the buttocks. The body leaves it at the pelvis to hips.

In the laying pose he was horizontal, is this considered of the axis or dose the axis change to horizontal?

One pose he sat on the floor, one leg out straight the other bent. his shoulders where tipped back with his right hand supporting the pose.

I think you can tell form my drawings when the model is off axis.
