Description

This course will provide you with an understanding of simplified anatomy for the human form. You will be able to draw the body correctly in proportion and understand how it moves in three dimensions.&nbsp;<p><b><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;

What can students expect?

Effective methods of creating a dynamic image will be shown through demonstrations followed by exercises, allowing you to try for yourself and produce competent drawings using a range of photographic reference and three-dimensional anatomical models provided. By exploring the weight and gestures within a variety of poses you can then begin to develop a more expressive and unique drawing style. Your understanding of anatomy can be applied to many other practices, such as life drawing, portraiture, illustration, animation and sculpture.&nbsp;<p><b><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;
