Feeling the Form
In short poses (five minutes or less), it is difficult to lay down an ‘accurate’, final line for forms at a first go. The difficult poses are fun to draw but harder for the model to hold it still. In the five-minute drawing above, I used multiple ‘noodly’ lines, drawn lightly, (refer to page 18 in the first edition of ‘Figure It Out – a thin book on Figure Drawing‘ for the explanation of the word ‘noodly’) to help with these two problems. This model had a really long neck – comparatively speaking.
