Here are 3 vids on constructing the ‘manikin head’ and ‘manikin figure’. The idea is to learn the simple construction at all angles; learn to construct the feature/anatomy groups; map the feature/anatomy groups onto the manikin . Eventually, these constructions become instinctual and more emphasis is placed on the shading, light and shadow patterns that indicate masses, etc, rather than just ‘outlines’ of features and masses. The goal should be to internalize this knowledge and apply it later in direct observational life drawing. Keep coming back to this page to click on the next video if you go astray. Disregard the internal titles as the vids were shot for a previous set of lessons, but these three are relevant to our Life Drawing course.
