Sample text

To help counteract this problem, and build on the skills we practiced in the previous sections, we will now concentrate on looking for contrasting shapes. Contrasting shapes are shapes that complement each other in some way—a long shape with a short shape, a vertical with a horizontal, for example. Using contrasting shapes is an important key to holding the attention of the viewer and also in determining your vision. Your selectivity in choosing shapes of different characters that play upon each other not only nurtures your draftsmanship, but also allows you to see anew and reinvent the figure in interesting patterns of varying shapes.

The line of the left-hand leg has been exaggerated to complement that of the supporting leg. 3 Diagonals As you have probably noticed at this point, diagonals were incorporated into each of the previous exercises. A diagonal is one of the most important elements to incorporate into a drawing. Using the slants and angles of the figure will make your drawing dynamic and create a flow and movement to allow the eye to revolve around the drawing. Try exaggerating the diagonals in the slant of the shoulders, arms, waist, and hips.

Glance at the three triangular shapes visible between the negative space of the arms and see how these were pushed slightly to make one narrower and one wider and then played against the horizontal waist shape. All three of these shapes, although close in character, are exaggerated to give each shape a personality. The last shape of the leg uses the slit of the skirt to elongate it and make it more interesting. Step Two Expand the horizons of selection by using not only the solid shapes visible, but also the shapes that form shadows, light, folds, or nuances in the pose and clothing that could make for interesting shapes (see Figures 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6).
