    I feel like the model is leaning back and slightly away from the viewer, whereas the the mannequin just shows a twist of the upper torso. Of course, I’d never have noticed without having watched the videos for the last month and half. (Awesome website btw; I’m reading Loomis while working on the portrait drawing material).

  2. Thank you for breaking down the organic figure into simple forms. The more examples you provide, the easier it becomes for me to see depth.

    Thank you for your videos. I love them. You are so much like my young, talented and classically trained art teacher at our local Jr. College. You really compliment everything I am studying.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I’m surprised you didn’t start with a gesture. Did you just do that for this video or do you usually go straight to the mannequin stage when drawing a figure?
