In this highly-anticipated series, master draftsman Glenn Vilppu shares with you his approach to figure drawing. In this second lesson of the series, Glenn covers spherical forms. He begins with a lecture introducing the concept of spherical forms in figure drawing, followed by analyses of spheres in Old Master works.

When Glenn talks about containing or bracketing, he always emphasizes only specific parts of the form (ie the sides?)
I feel I don’t fully understand where to bracket (and emphasize the boundaries of the form, as I understand it) Often I draw fully through and my drawing becomes a mess (maybe that is OK?) or I start drawing contours instead. That is, I draw exactly the parts of the Form that I can see.
I would appreciate any hint on how to approach this.
