1 Cre­ate a wire frame

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Epic Scale -

We need a skele­ton to at­tach these mus­cles to, so I be­gin with my 2H pen­cil and lay out a quick ges­ture. This is of a canid (a dog) walk­ing. I’m not wor­ried about de­tail; I just want the shape, pro­por­tion and mo­tion.

Wire frames are the eas­ier way to jot down an an­i­mal’s pose. This tech­nique is not only use­ful for foun­da­tion draw­ing like this, but also life draw­ing at the zoo.
