Jacob Collins Home Studio Tour
Sculpting the Figure with Pencil DVD
Many of us get to the middle of our painting and find that our figure is off or the layout is askew. This program is about measuring and checking the proportions of the figure so that doesn’t happen. Jacob is drawing a frontal nude, a healthy, young gal. The lesson here is how often and how carefully he measures as he goes to create beautiful, lifelike figures in his paintings. When he is done, as he says, the drawing is ready to be finished or to be transferred to canvas for a painting. One can see clearly the many different ways he measured and then how he stroked each line to indicate muscle and bone underneath.
