Anatomy is the key, the way through mastering the human figure. In order to have full creative control over our abilities to invent and recreate the human figure we must learn the fundamental principles of human anatomy.
In this course, we'll teach you a simple method to establishing accurate proportions. We'll teach you how to use landmarks and the "lines of the body" to establish accurate form. We'll teach you how to break form down into structure. Then we'll teach how to find the details of anatomy that breaths life into your figure and we'll do all of this over the course of 2.5 days in Laguna Beach, CA.
Start Date: February 10th, Friday 6pm
End Date: February 12th, Sunday 5pm
Duration: 2.5 days
Using a live model we block in the model's basic shapes
We begin to dissect one half of our sculpt to discover the bones and do a detailed study of the artistic concepts of morphology and artistic anatomy.
We begin to lay in the muscles of the human torso
We move from the shoulder to the arm prioritizing simplicity and essential shapes over specific muscles.
In this session we move onto the legs and again prioritize simplicity and essential shapes over specific muscles.
Breath. Relax. Our job is to make progress not make things perfect. In this morning session we review our progress and plan for the next steps while working on hands and feet.
The human face is blocked in with simple planes.
We develop the plans and structure of the human face further and wrap up an intense weekend of work!
