    In this lesson, you will learn how to construct a full figure and develop an understanding of its proportions. Instructor Steve Huston will demonstrate how to combine two of the most important elements of figure drawing; gesture and structure. From there, he will teach you how the figure balances itself and how to illustrate that in your own drawings.

    This lesson belongs to the course Constructive Figure Drawing I. During this 7-week course, renowned artist Steve Huston will teach you a powerful and direct method to drawing the human figure. Steve will take you through several concepts to help simplify and demystify the construction of the figure. You will develop a strong understanding of body movement and its structure. You will watch Steve analyze drawings from the Old Masters to learn how they constructed the figures using simple forms and shapes. After this course, you will be able to break down any challenging figurative pose and apply the knowledge you gain here to personal artwork.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
