Studio Art: Drawing From Life

In Studio Art this week we are beginning to learn the basics of drawing from life including figuring out proportions, value, and materials.  Above is an example of how to sketch out the basic proportions of a face before you begin adding value (shading) and below is an example of the same technique with the whole body.  These are the same techniques that I demonstrated in class and that you should begin using before you really start drawing.  Today were going to take the next step and draw the skeleton so make sure you sketch out the proportions lightly before you really get going!
