Reilly Method Figure Drawing

We are pleased to share with you a 10-week long class brought to you by Art Mentors. In this class, legendary illustrator Mark Westermoe teaches figure drawing using the Reilly Method. In this 8th lesson, Mark will demonstrate how to properly render a full female figure by carefully spacing and placing the initial lay-in. He will also highlight the different aspects of the body to focus on when designing the figure, and later analyze works by illustrator Al Parker.
