View Full Version : Mannequin's relax

This a short doodle-alike drawing. I was practising an observation and drawing a kind of "harder" perspective... You know, sometines it's pain in the a*s to get the right result... and this is one of my attempts... :roll:
Done with Wacom Intuos3 tablet and the latest version of ArtRage.
No photo reference this time (my mannequin still relaxes itself). :)

Well, there's another one, it was drawn before the one I posted here. :)
He looks as if he walks like Egyptian, doesn't he? :lol: :) :D

Sort of a Bangles vintage kind of fellow you are.

Made him into a regular pharaoh about town -- who's puttin' on the Ritz.

Half expect him to start dancing in a 1930's top hat and tails sort of way. But clearly you are from a different generation than Fred Astaire.

I guess that's what mannequins ore for -- they're little wooden blank canvases.

Mind the foreshortening. You may sometime want to try exaggerating the size of the parts that are closer, like the feet in the first one. The overlap you have going is good to show things coming forward. But it can be pushed further with relative scale.

Nice exercise.
