Exercise 36. Weight Carry

Next, study an individual who is carrying a significant weight-i.e., a man carrying a sack; a mother, a child; or a kid, a heavy toy-and sketch, on the next blank page, 4 separate gesture drawings of each. You are attempting here to show how they physically compensate for the weight they are carrying, so push your poses accordingly. And don’t forget what you learned about the use of balance, specifically the center of gravity needing to be over one or both feet if the character is standing. (Take no more than 3 minutes to complete each drawing.)
