    In this lesson:

    In the sixth part of our comprehensive How to Draw the Costumed Figure course, you will learn how gesture and rhythm using shapes and alignments can move the viewers eye. You will learn how to utilize these principles to create eye “pathways” for more dynamic costumed figure drawings. You will be working in charcoal pencil on paper in this lesson.

    In this course:

    Learn how to draw the costume and props from reference or from imagination in this immense course by three senior New Masters Academy instructors – Disney art director Bill Perkins, film and game character designer and figure painter Charles Hu, and internationally renowned draftsman Glenn Vilppu. Drawing from live models and photo references, as well as master drawings of the past, you will learn to capture expression, performance, emotion and weighting of the pose as well as shapes and rhythms created by the costume folds. Bill Perkins teach you the action analysis study developed in Walt Disney Studios for animators. Charles Hu will demonstrate how to directly sketch costumed figure using many different media and how to apply language to your drawing. With Glenn Vilppu you will learn the seven major folds as well as approaches for using drapery to push the gesture of the pose and showing the form beneath in the case of clothing, as well as how different weights of fabrics behave differently.

    This course is perfect for fine artists, entertainment designers, illustrators, comic & anime artists, and animators, as well as portrait painters or for anyone who wants to draw or paint drapery from observation or imagination.

    Thank you, Bill for this excellent lecture on rhythms, especially the introduction lectures really opens one’s eyes to the intricate relationships of forms and shapes especially the drawing through helps understand these relationships, one minor note though is the models clothes are primarily dark and its challenging to see the folds in these videos. thank you again.
