In this lesson, you will discover the arm, head, and neck templates used in FORCE drawing. Instructor Mike Mattesi will teach you the rhythms and structures of the arm while analyzing its functions. Then, you will learn how to place the head and neck in the correct position within your drawing to give it believability.

This lesson belongs to Drawing with FORCE. In this 9-week course, author and instructor Mike Mattesi will introduce you to his FORCE drawing methodology. You will learn a figure drawing process rooted in the physics of motion. Mike will go step by step from setting up your drawing space to understanding gravity’s force on the figure. You will learn key elements such as applied force, rhythm, and the leading edge; from there, improve your understanding of the figure and effectively capture it on the page. Through this course, Mike will take drawing the figure beyond just observation and introduce it in a way that relies on physicality.
