Art Students Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form Another mention of the book is on a page of the study of Human Proportions through the ages: Proportionslehre from the Luitpold-Gymnasium Munchen: Polycletus was a Greek Sculptor active in the late 300s and early 200s B.C., along with Phidias, he created the classic Greek style. None of his works survive but Roman copies do. He was and is most appreciated for the naturalness of his sculptures and his admiration for the beauty of the natural figure as opposed to rigorous ideals of proportion. He also used a natural shift of weight to one leg known as contrapposto which gave his works a feeling of movement. From History of Sculpture: From the Earliest Ages to the Present Time by Dr.Wilhelm Lubke - 1872: "Next to Athens, at this period, Argos appears as the central point of a second important school. It was Polycletus' Canon that formed the basis for The Sculptor and Art Student's Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (c) to view the PDF file.

How to use these tools These tools are ideally suited for gesture drawing practice, but can be used with many styles of drawing practice. Gesture drawings are works of art created in an extremely short amount of time, traditionally 30 seconds — and certainly no more than two minutes. Why bother with drawing something in a time period so frustratingly short? One of the most common mistakes that artists make is getting too detailed too soon. Regular gesture drawing can be a fantastic way to increase your artistic skill. Detailed Instructions Beyond gesture drawing Gesture drawing is a great foundation skill, but of course there is so much more to becoming a capable artist.
Un artiste de rue qui crée et s'amuse avec l'environnement qui l'entoure... Génial ! Il s’appelle OakOak, il est un « street artist » et il nous vient de St Etienne en France. S’il est aujourd’hui reconnu dans le monde entier, c’est pour l’originalité de son travail… Regardez ! L’imagination et la créativité sont probablement les mots qui décrivent le mieux OakOak. Car son travail, il l’improvise à partir de choses qui nous entourent, mais auxquelles on ne prête jamais attention. Fissures dans les murs, ombres, plantes, environnement urbain… Bref, tout y passe et tout est prétexte à l’art. Personnages geeks, inspirés du cinéma ou encore des jeux vidéos, il n’hésite pas non plus à dénoncer les points faibles de la société, toujours avec la subtilité qui le caractérise.
Rat Creature's Journal - how to draw female comic characters (according to Wizard)... brown_betty asked for examples "to illustrate the exactly how and why female comic characters are illustrated differently than the male." And I thought, really, what's better to illustrate these things than the books teaching the style in the first place? A while ago I posted some scans from Wizard How To Draw series on drawing female superheroes (here and here), and I thought I'd post a bunch more from the first book of the series on "How To Draw: Heroic Anatomy". As everything, it starts with the basics, i.e. proportions. First the male superhero The female example is similar, but slightly different, notice how he stands firm and straight, wheras she stands with her hips cocked a little and the leg thrust forward? Also notice in the direct torso comparison below, how the male one is ramrod straight, but she curves and leans just a little bit in the same pose? Now onwards to the chapter "Sultry Women". Next, Michael Turner explains "Sex Appeal".
Artistic Anatomy Is learning to draw anatomy in a classroom more secure (since there is a teacher to check the work and possibly a book to study from) in practicing artistic anatomy drawing, or should artists focus on just practicing from images on websites/blogs like this tumblr? Asketh - pjmx24 Depending on the size of your class and where you are, your teacher can be a great guide to help you and show you what areas you need to focus on more to improve and give you good material to work from! If your class size is too big (ideally a class of no more than 15 is optimal for a teacher to give extensive feedback to all students) you might not get enough feedback to really improve as much as possible to your full potential. Outside of class (or if you have no class) you should focus on drawing in a sketchbook dedicated for life drawing/anatomy. Hope that gives you some insight!
