What You’ll Learn
Gesture: One of the most important concepts to drawing the figure. Gesture is the rhythm, motion, action, flow, and posture of the pose.
The Bean: An effective tool for identifying and drawing the tilting, leaning, twisting, and foreshortening of the body.
Landmarks: Know the areas where the bone is at the surface. Landmarks are used to find forms and to measure proportion.
Mannequinization: Give your drawings volume and perspective by using mannequinization to help invent poses from your imagination.
Robo Bean: Create a representation of the body with boxes to help find its orientation and use it to visualize it as a 3D form.

Shading: Use highlights, halftones, core shadows and more to make objects feel 3 dimensional. Identify specific elements of light and apply it to the form.
Practice & Patience: Develop a drawing schedule and stay motivated. Knowing how to actually draw this stuff helps with… well, drawing this stuff!
