A wood mannequin is perfect for practicing figure drawing! And observational drawing in general is a great way to develop both drawing and observation skills in kids and adults alike.
Recorded some of me drawing in Fews (a figure drawing club at RCAD) Decided that I wanted to share :D! Figure drawing definitely helps my drawing improve ✨ I encourage you to go to a figure drawing session if they are near by you
Practice drawing the basic-geometric shapes every day, just like you would practice scales if you wanted to learn the piano. They are the foundational shape for almost everything that artists draw. Practice them in many different angles.
