In week six, instructor Mike Mattesi will introduce you to the idea of templates and the different figure torsos used in FORCE drawing. You will learn to examine each pose and decide which type of torso to use while illustrating it. Mike will also cover how to write ideas for the figure and translate those into a drawing. After this lesson, you will develop the skills to draw from your internal dialogue when observing a pose.
