Project: Gesture – Exercise: Stance

Exercise: Stance

Mark the central axis in your initial sketches of the standing figure.  Ask the model to change poses every 2 to 5 minutes.  Draw as many quick poses as you can.

The main challenge was thinking up poses for this exercise – hopefully we achieved a good variety of stances.  Whilst writing my notes in my sketchbook, it occurred to me how each pose may be interpreted in body language.  This would be useful when making a drawing with a specific narrative, when trying to convey an emotion or behaviour, as well as trying to make a figure believable and grounded on the paper using the central axis.  The stances above range from a casual open impressions, passive/aggressive, through to despair and arrogance.
