FDW - Session 17

Well finally back at the Figure Drawing Workshop again. Between holidays and my car door randomly staying frozen shut, it was hard to make it there the past few weeks.

This session I tried to focus more on getting the face, torso, and pelvis structures aligned properly. I find that my faces have a hard time pointing in the right direction. Simplifying these masses into boxes help orient the features better later. Ron Lemen suggested in his video to use the top of the forehead along with the chin to finding the parallel lines that converge to form the initial orientation for the head box. That tip has been helping.
