Sample text

At The Drawing Club, artists often see the model’s pose as a starting point. From there, they take off in a variety of directions. For example, a model might work with us as an action character. The poses throughout the night express strength and toughness. For some, this strength and toughness show up in the drawings because the proportions are exaggerated and the marks are drawn aggressively. But for others, the session becomes an opportunity to try something else. A very serious pose can turn into a funny drawing, or a funny pose can become a melancholy drawing.

Use a different rectangular shape for each drawing and design your subject into that space. If the proportions change, it’s okay. Cropping is okay too, but try limiting your cropping to one or two sides of the shape at first. This will keep most or all of the figure in your design. Evaluate your drawing as a composition. The goal is that the positive space of the figure and the negative spaces surrounding it should feel equally important. When you look at the drawings in this chapter, you can safely assume that the artists were not just copying what was there; they were deliberately designing a message.

All of this mixed together creates an experience that is much more interesting than a person in costume standing on a box in the middle of a room lit with just a fluorescent light on in the center of the room. To me, it’s like the difference between eating a hot dog at a ball game where you can smell the grass, feel the energy from the crowd, and get engulfed in the drama of the game versus eating the same hot dog in your basement staring at a cinderblock wall. The hot dog tastes way better at the game because it is part of a bigger experience.
