Let's sketch moving people. People often ask me, "Isn't it difficult to sketch?" No.Below, I sketched gospel singers playing on a street.This is my way.1) Carefully observe movements.2) Define pattern of movements.
a) as a whole body, what sort of movement?
eg) dancing, running, eating, jumping etc.
b) some parts remain still = distinguish moving parts from still ones.
eg) head? what else? In this quick watercolour, a restaurant manager stays still except his hands and sometimes a head.Sketching sports palyers is a good option to learn the moving pattern. Also, put moving people in order on a same page -- is a good fun to check the drawing.3) Try very rough drawings.
eg) "stick figure" is a good idea!
Draw moving people with a few lines. Lines are the lesser, the better.Below the acrobats in a circus.
4) Put some muscles = Mainly most impressive areas = make drama, dynamic movemenet.
So, having anatomical knowledge is advantage. Some body parts remain in the same posture, while other parts are changing positions. Once, you get the pattern, your eyes will follow movements easily and remember movements by heart.
I love sketching moving people. It's beauty and "life."
Friends, enjoy movements and Happy Painting!
