Beginning Figure Drawing

Beginning Figure Drawing represents the culmination of decades of instruction to studios and professionals around the world where Steve has honed his teaching philosophy down to a fun and efficient experience. This is Part 2 of the series, check out Part 1 here!

Despite his impressive bona fides, Steve specializes in making complex information easy to understand for everybody. In the second installment of the series, Steve breaks down the elements of the figure, and the jointed connections and proportions of the body through a series of lectures, demonstrations, and Old Master studies. Building upon a solid foundation of Gesture and Structure from Part 1, learn from Steve how to place the head, legs, torso, etc on your page in a realistic and natural context. It’s important to remember that each body part has a relationship to the others.
