This long pose course continues where the Analytical Figure Drawing class left off. It focuses on the study of head, facial features, hands & feet to build an understanding of their gesture & structure. Topics of capturing likeness, expressions, lighting, value and shadow shape design will be discussed during the many in class demos. This is a great class for character designers and for artists making the transition from drawing into painting. Pose length varies from 10 min to 3 hrs. poses. Previous experience in figure drawing is strongly recommended. (Due to Covid-19, there are no live model sessions for online classes.)
