    The Gnomon Workshop: Drawing the Figure 1-2 with Jack Bosson
    SIZE : 1.87 GB

    Description : This lecture is the first of a series on how to approach drawing the human figure.

    In this series, Jack states that a successful figure drawing must include evidence of three sets of information: gestural, structural, and anatomical; the first being the focus of this particular demonstration. Gesture drawing establishes the unique storytelling and emotional properties of a given pose. It can also be used to map out the essential idea conveyed in the pose. Jack explores rapid-sketch technique, weight distribution, and the rhythm of the body parts as they adjust to the effects of gravity. Key concepts such as "contrapposto", twist, overlapping shapes, and foreshortening are also covered. In short, this lecture will show you how to create a dynamic, lively interpretation of the subject being observed.
    Short Description: The first part describes how to approach drawing the human figure.

    The Gnomon Workshop: Drawing the Figure 2 Form and Structure with Jack Bosson
    In this second DVD of the Drawing the Figure series, Jack explores the properties of structure. Here, he introduces the basic elements required to create the illusion of 3 -Dimensional space and form as they apply to the human figure. By constructing simple forms, exploring overlap and translating the complexity of the human body into its simplest, most basic forms, we can begin to understand the process of converting a 3 -Dimensonal, real world form onto a flat, 2 -Dimensional surface that an observer can understand. Jack will demonstrate how to see the forms and draw through them without losing the gestural quality described in his first DVD.

    Short Description: The second part explains how to use simple elements to create the illusion of three-dimensional space and form .
