The Longer Pose
Find a pose that your model is comfortable with and that they can hold for an hour, such as a seated position, with breaks every 20 minutes or so.
1 hour plus rests – duration 8.30pm to 10.15pm
To check measurements:-
- using the head – front plane only works on the longest line, head to hip to left knee (facing) down to the heel. Foreshortening of right leg (facing) made this difficult.
- used negative spaces eg between knees, between feet, between left forearm and knee (facing)
- levels of shoulders
Thought right leg (facing) was going to run off the page, but model changed position slightly and increased foreshortening which seemed to bring the foot up a little – or was this wishful thinking?
Not sure I’ve succeeded in making the hips recede enough into the corner of the sofa. On the whole I am pleased with it – he thinks it looks like him too which is a plus.
