The Art Of Figure Drawing

mishfit_figuredrawing I’m getting back to basics this month by relearning the art of figure drawing. Starting with the structural mannikin, studying the proportions of the male and female frame and working up to a fleshed out figure.I don’t recall ever being taught this at art school and I am really enjoying the cross over between drawing and human anatomy.  Really, which ever method you use to learn it, drawing the human figure is a skill that hasn’t changed for centuries and is still as relevant today as it was 500 years ago.
