Human Proportions – Idealistic Figures
Study Loomis' Idealistic proportions
Study Loomis' Idealistic proportions. Copy them. Then, put the reference away and see if you can draw them from memory!
Left is from reference and right from imagination. Even if I don't have the perfect anatomical details and general shapes memorized, rhythms have been helping me a lot when drawing them from imagination
The left is copy, and right is from memory. I like loomis method, it's easier for me in most situations.
The longer I study proportions, the more my brain wants to mess things up! On the right is a drawing from memory and it looks more heroic than the referenced midgets on the left. The female figure especially, since I tried drawing her without the heels. While I like the heroic proportions, I disliked Loomis's method the most. The upper limbs and hands are still the hardest to nail. I think that I will search for a method that mixes both Richer and Hale's logic.
Last ones! First set is with reference, second set without. I remembered the male chest proportions wrong on the front facing drawing and the figure looks a lot skinnier as a result. Also there's less detail and more anatomical inaccuracies in the second set but that was kinda expected given my lack of knowledge :) Any feedback is appreciated as always!
Hi all, I finished some Loomis Proportion Studies; The first three are using reference, the last 3 are recall. Any feedback would be much appreciated, Thanks!
Test & Study of Loomis proportions. Prefer it over the richer method, but in general I concluded that Hale works the best for me.
