What you will learn
In this lesson, master draftsman and painter Danny Galieote executes an analytical study of Michelangelo’s drawing technique used in his famous study of the Lybian Sibyl (Lib-ee-in Sib-ul). First you will see how to block-in the rhythm, anatomical landmarks and structure. After blocking in the three-dimensional forms with line and soft tones, you will see how to develop the subtle forms with a hatched-line technique. And finally you will be shown how to hit the final dark accents in your drawings to give the feeling of living flesh.
