4.4.1 Structure

For this part of the chapter, I will take a closer look at the underlying structure of the body- the skeleton, the body’s measurements and mechanics. I have had a lot of fun just drawing less detailed figures and rough form so far, but now it looks like it is time to get serious 🙂

I start by drawing the skull in coloured pencils on A3:

A very basic first approach- I really just have to learn everything.

Quick ink, no details:

 

This is a very helpful exercise, and I will come back to it again with more parts as I continue drawing. Especially hands need more exercise!
