Foreshortening problem

Postby Aaron on Wed Jul 28, 2010 1:27 pm

Drawn a million times, yet can't find one example of a person flying away from the camera. I'm not skilled in anatomy, and so I can't figure out the foreshortening of the legs (and possibly their calf muscles and what's longer than what). I start drawing then go umm.... heheh

HELPS!!!!

Get your loved one/family member to lie on their tummy then get behind them with a sketchbook and have a go at the pose. Don't use a camera or you won't learn anything.

See? I CAN be encouraging to new talent. Sometimes ...

or go grab yourself a little articulated mannequin from an art supply store - that'll give you all the necessary joint points that'll set the lengths in perspective.

Also, look to invest in a decent anatomy book. A good one with cross sections of the limbs and torso. I know it's hard to picture all the musculature from that angle but a good anatomy book really helps you understand how the body looks from weird angles. 'Anatomy for the artist' by Jeno Barcsay is one of the best buys I've ever made.

Hi Aaron,

I thought I'd done this on a "Moth & Tanuki" page, but not quite. Still, there's usually a bit of foreshortening involved in her flying around - a couple of examples below.

Definitely get some good anatomy books that have pics of models (clothed and unclothed) photographed in all kinds of positions and from all angles. Dolls have their uses for this as well. The whole 3D to 2D thing can be tricky, but basically you're laying shape over shape coming towards you. And yes, a good life model is a huge help and worth the practice at any time.

Cheers,

Ian T.

I often use sites like Flickr, tumblr, etc to source references for anatomy & perspective too.
(In certain circles,this MAY appear like I am just surfing for porn, but it is all for the art. I swear!)
