Learn How to Draw: The Figure in Motion II

In this tutorial, Linda takes you further into the body in motion as she shows you how to simplify the human form. This simplification reduces the information about bones and muscle tissue down to what are known as “modified cylinders,” or construction that helps you to see how easily you can draw the human form. She uses popular cartoons to emphasize how the human form is created or replicated so that you’ll understand further how the human form works. You’ll also receive some information on shading, so that you can move on to draping the human figure in clothing.

Linda Goin

Linda GoinLinda Goin carries an A.A. in graphic design, a B.F.A. in visual communications with a minor in business and marketing and an M.A. in American History with a minor in the Reformation. While the latter degree doesn't seem to fit with the first two educational experiences, Linda used her 25-year design expertise on archaeological digs and in the study of material culture. Now she uses her education and experiences in social media experiments.

Accolades for her work include fifteen first-place Colorado Press Association awards, numerous fine art and graphic design awards, and interviews about content development with The Wall St. Journal, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, and L.A. Times.
