Project Description

b93cf712

You’ll be creating your own Dynamic Character!

 

Let’s follow these simple steps:

  • Go to https://line-of-action.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing
  • Choose your Settings (I prefer nude models as it’s clearer to find the Line of Action), choose "All the Same Length" and a time that you feel comfortable drawing (works best under 2 mins)
  • Do 5~7 sketches
  • Choose one of the previous Sketches
  • Clean it up as I did in the Video Lesson
  • Congratulations! You’ve improved on your Character Posing, post it on the Class Projects and keep practicing :)

 

Don’t forget to check out other people’s Class Projects and leave some tips and feedback. I'll be checking the projects out every now and then and leaving feedback, so don't be shy! 

Thank you for taking the class, I hope you had fun and have learned something new!

Check out my other Classes, I hope to see your work there as well.

Keep on drawing,

Patricia Caldeira
