In this lesson, Steve Huston will show you how Old Masters like Michelangelo constructed their anatomy. You will learn how to apply these principles in a long pose. Steve will demonstrate on a 50-minute pose, that teaches you every process from gesture drawing, construction lines to the rendering of light and shadow. Throughout this lesson, Steve will talk about the importance of aesthetics when constructing a figure.

This lesson belongs to the course Art Anatomy for Beginners. In this 6-week course, renowned painter Steve Huston will provide you an introduction to human anatomy. You will study how he uses the perspective of aesthetics and mechanics of motion, to deconstruct the anatomy of a human figure. You will learn how to simplify the structures of the figure, in order to create compelling and effective drawings. Following the traditional approach of historic drafts persons like George Bridgman and Burne Hogarth, this course will provide you a concrete foundation of anatomy, tailored specifically for artists.

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