Description

Throughout the duration of this tutorial we'll be sketching six different action poses, and we'll spend a couple of lessons sketching and breaking down each pose to bring it to life. For each action pose we'll begin by visualizing any story-telling elements that might be associated with the action taking place. From there, we'll focus on sketching in lines of action to establish movement and fluidity with the form. Following this, we'll block in simple shapes to nail down the final pose. Once we've sketched our rough pose, we'll begin to sketch in additional details to build up the form and add volume. Along the way we'll discuss how we can take these additional details to push the action of the pose even further. By exploring how we can break down and sketch these action poses, you'll be able to explore sketching your own action poses with more confidence while having a lot of fun.

Introduction and Project Overview
(electronic music) Hi, I'm Kurt with digital-tutors. Welcome to this course, where we'll focus on Sketching Dynamic Action Poses. Throughout the duration of this course, we'll be sketching six different action poses and we'll spend a couple of lessons sketching and breaking down each pose to bring it to life. For each action pose, we'll begin by visualizing any storytelling elements that might be associated with the action taking place. From there we'll focus on sketching in lines of action to establish movement and fluidity with the form. Following this, we'll block in simple shapes to nail down the final pose.

Along the way we'll discuss how we can take these additional details to push the action of the pose even further. By exploring how we can break down and sketch these action poses, you'll be able to explore sketching your own action poses with more confidence while having a lot of fun. So, with that, we'll get started in our next lesson.
