Part 4: Project 3 Form, Exercise 1 Basic Shapes

I didn’t see much difference in this exercise from the previous one, but I tried to have my model sit slightly angled away from me. As I had previously,I worked out the angles of the  shoulder and hip line and the central axis before drawing the body.  There is more context with this drawing and I am getting the hang of hands.

The shoulders are at different heights because one arm is resting on the armrest but otherwise the body is fairly symmetrical. As the body is seated in a low chair the body is slightly folded at the middle which gives a sense of foreshortening, but this area is unfortunately covered up by the newspaper.
