Head and handsPosted: September 5, 2013
Marc Holmes draws people really well and this sketch is based on something I learned from him this summer. It was during a practice lesson for the “Drawing people in action” workshop that he gave in Barcelona and it came in really handy today. The exercise we did together was to draw the head and the hands first because they usually express the gesture of the person, and after that add in the connectors, like arms, torsos, etc. This seated boy wasn’t exactly a “person in motion” in that he was mostly seated and looking at his phone, but neither was he posing for me. His gesture was quite ordinary until he placed his hand on his shoulder and I was able to quickly add it in.
