Free Art For All - Beyond Basic Stickmen - Sculpture 2 of 3

In this lesson we will advance from making a stickman drawing by tracing a magazine photo to posing a figure to make our sculpture.  Use your sketchbook to do your planning.  That way you will always have a reminder of how you created your sculpture.  Thanks to our model, Grover monster, who we can move him around and draw the stickman a  pose that will eventually be our sculpture.  This is key to a successful sculpture.  You need a firm enough base for the sculpture to stand (sit) on a tabletop.

We finish up the lesson with a reminder that we can draw simple shapes.  I chose an ink pen and talked about how I would draw it and shade it.
