15 Form, weight, pro­por­tion and per­spec­tive

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight Observational Art -

The only way I can deal with these four heavy­weights in one para­graph is with this ex­er­cise. Make some­one lie on the ground with their knees bent at right an­gles, sim­i­lar to the pos­ture they achieve when they’re sat on a chair. Stand closer to the legs so you can see the fig­ure re­ced­ing in per­spec­tive. Com­pare this to some­one sit­ting on a chair. In the two fig­ures, you’ll be able to com­pare parts of the body, in terms of form, pro­por­tion, per­spec­tive and the body’s re­sponse to grav­ity.
