We learn from Mayko how she turns tricky foreshortened poses into patterns of simple geometric shapes, and then finds the overlaps, intersections and alignments to help map them out.

Figuary is Figure Drawing Month, and will run for all of February. Every day you will get a tutorial from us on our YouTube channel and a practice session from Croquis Cafe on their Vimeo channel.

Both our tutorials and the CC practice sessions are designed to be quick and fun, so you can fit it in each day. Our tutorials will build up fundamental skills in stages, and will be relevant for beginners and more advanced artists alike.

Good luck and see you tomorrow!
