MODULE 1 • PLANNING THE FIGURE

Step Description
1 The first thing you need to do is to establish your center or plum line. Begin by centering your ruler on the page and place a mark at the midway point.
2 On the centerline place a mark ¼” away from the top and bottom of the page.
3 With your ruler or preferably by eye, draw a centerline down from the top ¼ mark to the bottom ¼ mark. Place a crossmark at the top, bottom and middle of the centerline.
4 We are drawing what is called a 10 headed proportion, so you will divide your line into 10 equal sections. For demonstration purposes they are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and then 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.

MODULE 2 • MAPPING THE GESTURE

Step Description
1 Into the first section, draw the head in profile, looking somewhat like a skull shape.
