Add lifelike movement and striking sculptural quality to your drawing skill set as you learn to masterfully depict the draped form.
Discover expert techniques for sketching, shading and finishing to recreate the timeless motif of the human form draped in fabric. Begin your first rendering as award-winning artist Matt Weigle introduces you to the seven basic folds, and use the envelope method to quickly block in a pipe fold. Create a sphere study and diaper-fold rendering, and find out how to model and turn form using a range of values. Then follow Weigle as he sketches from a live model, simplifying the complex human form with basic shapes. Develop a realistic rendering with movement and depth as you use careful gradation details, sweeping lines and beautifully defined shapes to depict cascading drapery as it glides over the figure. Refine your drawing with clean edges and rich shadows and transform basic subject matter into a striking work of art.
