Then, as our vantage point is raised once more, this time in a right-to-left turn, the cranial mass is once again dominant. From a bottom view, the wedge of the face takes on a more important appearance in relation to the cranial structure.

The features of the face reveal a new aspect: From the rear, the skull case and the facial wedge show their most characteristic differences in shape: It is the largest sin form structure of the entire bo Frontally, its curved surface terminates top and bottom in two horseshoe-like passages.

The descending collarbone depression of the upper chest left. When the figure is tipped forward into a deep frontal view, the swelling curve of the rib cage, front to rear, is so great that it is able to girdle the head within its encircling contour below.

The cylindrical column of the neck emerges like a thick, short tree limb growing from within the triangulate hollow of the chest left. In any view looking upward, the barreling chest mass dominates all other forms; like a curving landscape, the pectoral arch overlaps the neck.

This torso, shown upview front, reveals how much larger the mass of the chest is compared with its attached members, the head and shoulders.

In general change in appearance in the upper chest mass: The diaphragm arch appears as a great, vaulting tunnel of bone at the base of the front of the chest. From this opening, like the hollow bottom of a brandy bottle, the long abdominal mass emerges and descends in three undulant stages, or tiers.

It should be observed that the terminal belly form the third tier , starting at the lower level of the navel and compressing to the pubic arch, is not only the largest of the three stages, but is roughly equivalent in size to the frontal head mass of this figure left. Using a male figure for the left across the chest barrel we can the sake of clarity , we start at the pit of the correctly place the nipples of the chest base neck where the collarbones join A.

From this above. The nipple posed on the nipple positions, and the discs disc B is located on this line just above the are advanced to the surface of the breast deep corner margin of the chest muscle.

When both breasts are shown, especially in a three quarter view, they can QHYHU be seen simultaneously from a direct, frontal position. One breast will be seen with its centrally located nipple disc face on, while the other will be seen in a side view, with its nipple projecting in profile.

After the rib cage, the pelvic wedge is the second largest mass of the body. Locked to the barrel by the tapering muscles of the waist, the wedge box is narrow at the top, broader at the base.

Schematic rendering of the two torso masses: In the normal, erect attitude of the body, the two torso masses express an inverse, counterpoised relationship: Here, the lower pelvic wedge is tipped forward, the underbelly is recessive, and the rear buttock area arches upward into view.

The butterfly wedge easily indentifies the pelvic The butterfly configuration is evident in a rear wedge masses in this rear, almost side, view. Note The wing forms are overlapped and the relatively larger hip structure, both in width foreshortened from front to back. A narrow rib cage combined with a wide pelvis identifies the female torso and is a distinguishing characteristic of male-female differentiation.

The waist, because of its axis- like quality, is capable of great versatility of movement. Described simply, the arm and the leg are elongated, jointed two-part members, each of whose parts has a modified cone or cylinder shape. Note that both the arm and the leg swivel, or rotate, high in the shoulder A or hip Al ; both have a bending, or rocking, joint in the middle of the member at the elbow B or the knee Bl ; and both have a terminal gyrating member, the hand or the foot, attached to a tapered base at the wrist C or the ankle C1.

For all their similarity, the arm and the leg have The curving rhythm of the arm in a rear view. No matter how the arm moves, from simple positions, such as the two extended arms shown above right, to deep, active bends left , the consistent undercurve is always present. Invariably, this curve provides the basis for the arm's structural rhythm. A frontal figure with arms flexed and foreshortened shows the correlation of double curves see arrows.

An arm in deep space extension gives us the underarm double curve see arrows , proof of the arm's unvarying structural rhythm left.

This side view of the right leg shows a long S-line curve taken from the active thrusts of the leg muscles see arrows. This S-line starts high on the front thigh, reverses at the knee, and moves rearward down the calf bulge left.

A three quarter view of the leg of a seated figure seen from the rear.

The S-line curve of the leg see arrows shows how clearly the structural rhythm of the leg can be seen. While the S-line rhythm establishes a guideline for drawing side views of the legs in many different positions and movements, there is a point where we find a IURQWDO appearance beginning to overrule the side YLHZ position. The erect, far leg the supporting leg is in a three quarters position, turned slightly away from side view; but the S-line is still evident in it because the rhythm of the leg structure has a basically side view orientation.

Compare this with the crossed left leg. The small line diagram to the left of the drawing shows how the B-shape is applied in the conception of the front view leg as a simple beginning of the final workup beside it. The B-shape rhythm of the front view leg accounts for all manner of leg bends and actions. In this figure, we see a front view leg with a bent knee; the straight B-shape line is given a corresponding break.

Note the exposed anklebones. Once again, these protruding anklebones immediately signal a frontal leg approach, and call for a B-shape control of forms see arrows.

Rear view legs, without exception follow the front view leg rule: In this example, the inward curve of the shinbones has been accentuated not an uncommon thing in many persons in order to illustrate a variant of the straight control line of the B-shape formula for the front view leg: In this example of two rear view legs, the left knee bend produces a corresponding break in the inside line of the B-shape. In these front view legs in a hunched, crossed- over position, curved accents have been inserted on the line of the shinbones to emphasize their inward curve.

The problem of arranging flexed, overlapped legs is easily solved by using B-shape controls.

Dynamic Figure Drawing

In looking at this figure projected into deep space, see how easily the B-shape works to orient the legs in this difficult view see arrows.

The position of the anklebones tells us that the approach must be frontal. Only the accented shinbone curves have been drawn in; the B- shape controls have been left out, and the reader is urged to study the drawing and determine them himself. This figure is added here so that we may recapitulate and combine two of the earlier discussions of the different structural rhythms of the extremities: These two wedges, however, are very different in structure.

In the two examples which follow, the wedge forms of the hand and the foot have been supplemented by companion sketches to show the unique character of each.

Thus, we note the basic difference between the hand and the foot: The shape-mass of the foot is a broad-based wedge, showing a remarkably high, triangulate elevation at the rear, from whence a steep diagonal descends to the front.

The front sole divides into two sections: The toes differ from the platform support in their function; they act as traction and projection devices—gripping and pushing. The foot wedge is a compound form that consists of three main parts: The toes reveal a high, upthrust rise of the large toe tip, contrasting sharply with the downthrust, closed pressure of the small toes see arrows. Of major significance in describing the foot is tions: Note the relationship not unlike that in the great foot differences between the inner and the outer foot arch proper.

This slope ends in the quick upcurve of the tip of the large toe. This rise, seen from the immediate front, shows the toe tip thrusting up from the base plane of the foot left.

Note the rod forms relate to the narrow shank structure the inside arrow control line which holds inner of each digit; the ball forms represent the knuckle forms in check above. Because they are quite small and close-set, the toes are frequently difficult to draw without distortion when done in this way. In the step arrangement, the toes emerge from the sweeping descent of the arch and close down in a three-stage formation which resembles a short flight of steps. It is the skeletal structure which is plainly responsible for the hard, bony surface throughout the upper palm and fingers above.

The visible rod and ball forms of the hand develop a rising and falling rhythm which gives a ZDYHOLNH motion to the entire finger system, all the way down to the fingertips. The finger units, too, are thickly protected with a fleshy mantle.

We walk along the covenant path to receive other essential ordinances. How blessed we are to have the increased knowledge of the plan of salvation and the inspired guidance from loving prophets, apostles, and leaders to help us sail these stormy seas safely. We stopped our habit of turning on the radio in the morning.

Instead, we now listen to a general conference talk on our mobile phones every morning as we prepare ourselves for another day.

Such reaching requires diligent, focused effort. Do you remember the biblical story of the woman who suffered for 12 years with a debilitating problem?

Her physical stretching was symbolic of her spiritual stretching. I would know what to do. And I would have the power to do it. It is my testimony that when we draw His power into our lives, both He and we will rejoice.

Notice how the geometric shapes really make clear the twisting, turn- ing and bending of the torsos below. The armature yoke of the coupled arms is still emphasized. He demonstrates Give this remarkable book the dedication it dimensional, foreshortened figure is so how to create the illusion of roundness and depth deserves and the logic of the human figure will forbidding that most students are inclined to by light and shade, by the overlapping of forms, finally become second nature to you.

Legs, arms, and head have been added here to show how the torso, as the primary figure form, governs the positioning of the secondary parts. An arm in deep space extension gives us the underarm double curve see arrows , proof of the arm's unvarying structural rhythm left.

No matter how the arm moves, from simple positions, such as the two extended arms shown above right, to deep, active bends left , the consistent undercurve is always present.

It assumes a contrary, tipped-over position which is obliquely opposed to the mutual, flat arrangement of the other four fingers. These fine artists--who include mathematicians and scientists--examine how mathematics influences their art. From this above.
