Alright, I have a confession to make. I didn’t even try to pose the mannequin this time around. Pretty much just flailed his limbs and then made sure he was balanced. At least I drew him though. Yay, another figure drawing Thursday sketch!. I was still a bit off on some of the proportions but I think I’m improving. That night at Dr. Sketchy’s really did help. If nothing else it at least let me get some really terrible drawings out of my system. I think it’s important to do that once in a while.
As for the mannequin, he looks pretty bizarre. My husband mentioned that it looks like he’s doing some stretching. To be honest I don’t think people can really bend that way. Most of his joints look broken. When I suggested that he take up a yoga class I really didn’t expect him to take it quite this far. Maybe I should just give up trying to pose him altogether. I can never get him into specific poses but somehow he seems much more flexible when I’m not trying to get him to pose. These mannequins are tricky creatures.
