    In this new series, figure drawing instructor, Karl Gnass, will show you how to draw an entire figure through his five crucial stages: Gesture, Formulation, Anatomy, Light and Tone, and Aesthetics. In this lesson, Karl will give you an overview of these five stages. He will then elaborate on the three initial stages to achieve a solid foundation for your drawing. Karl will share with you his in-depth theories of how to construct your figure drawings.

    Hi,

    I’m trying to figure out the best approach to this series, and whether or not I should be using an easel, and what size paper to work on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Watch the video on drawing benches and easels, you should work as large as you can to move your shoulder, I’d recommend a bench.

    Thanks, Manuel – I have an easel so I’ll use that.

    Phillip,

     

    That is definitely not supposed to be the case. It looks like the references images may have gotten lost during the new website move. We will get to the bottom of this and correct next week.

    Hi,

    I like the approach of gesture from Karl Gnass and the 3 stages. My question is: If I want not to draw photo realistic, do I have also to know the 3rd stage anatomy? What If I want a style only with gesture and volume/shape? (I am a hobby artists). What are your thoughts about this? Many thanks from Austria/Europe.

    Best regards

    George
