The Outsider – By Pieter Lategan

The society follows all,
because of the inability of trapped rulers
who can’t rebel against their own rules

Privileges spending their time
renewing their thoughts and think for themselves
instead of doing nothing

Claim number 434384 Denied – By Pieter Lategan

The darkness is overwhelming me, so much so that I felt it is getting unhealthy. Sitting in this darkness with just the dim light from outside which throws artificial moving shadows in the room around while the wind is slightly blowing the trees without sound. Everything looks static not like a while ago when the sunlight dimed out. Human-made and natural is uncombinable although you can use them both together when you use a clever eye for matching the colors.

I stood up and my smock which I used to paint the last minutes of the day passing away, is still wet. Easily you can hide the Mona Lisa in this darkness without a claim amount. I wonder how much an assurance company will have to pay when he got the claim number which will be denied of something which is calling priceless? Suddenly I switch the light on. The moment is gone, the sunlight of a half an hour ago is gone, the darkness is gone, and the street light which was inside is now outside.

The night falls bring the color of black, thieves, depression, and sometimes death to your front door, mind, and soul. Another day is over and another night is passing on with the moon and the bright stars outside my living room.

About the Sketch of Mine

The legs are too short, if the legs were longer the arms would look in proportion. I feel that the arms are maybe a bit too long but it is ok.

Educational Value

I did research about the history of the wooden mannequin and got a site about mannequins.

Mannequin comes from the French word mannequin, which means “an artist’s jointed model”, which in turn came from the Flemish word manneken, meaning “little man, figurine.” This is what I got from Wikipedia.

On this site “https://npobjects.wordpress.com/2013/02/16/wooden-drawing-mannequin/”
From NPObects WordPress website says that according to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, a mannequin is “A life-size or partial representation of the human body, used for the fitting or displaying of clothes; a dummy.” it is ” a jointed model of the human body used by artists, especially to demonstrate the arrangement of drapery. Also called a lay figure.

Emily and Per Ola dAulair go into the history of mannequins. Apparently, mannequins dated all the way back to 1350 BC where it might have been the world’s first dress form. In the tomb of King Tut, an armless, legless, wooden torso is found exactly in the pharaoh’s measurements and it stands next to a chest full of the pharaoh’s clothing.

The European fashion doll was actually the original version of the modern mannequin. ” In 1391, Charles IV of Spain shipped a life-sized doll, dressed in the style of the French court, to the Queen of England as part of ongoing peace negotiations. Henry IV dispatched miniature, elegantly-attired dolls to the de Medici women to update them on British trends.

About the Record of the Sketch of Mine

I used the 5 head method the reason why the head is tilted and the feet showing inwards. This makes the length smaller of the figure.

Educational Value

A wooden mannequin can also help you understand movement and how light falls on the planes of the body, which also gives you a good foundation for rendering the contours. This mannequin can be placed in different poses/positions. Artists, tailors, designers, dressmakers, etc use these mannequins.

Mannequins are made completely out of wood and individual pieces of the mannequin are put together with glue and screws that come in various sizes. The mannequin seems to be made out of twenty-eight wooden parts, the head, chest, hips, thighs, legs from the knee down, feet, upper arm, lower arm, and all the balls that connect to each limb allowing movement for the mannequin.

Armature Drawings

Armatures are almost like glorified stick figures. Drawing this will help you to enhance your figure drawing skills. It is simple drawings that can help you to learn to draw the human figure. Stick figures can you turn into a foundation for drawing.

When you use armature in sculpture it is a skeleton or framework used by an artist to support a figure being modeled in soft plastic material.

Armature wire is often made of heavy, dark aluminum wire which is stiff but can be bent and twisted into shape without much difficulty.

Armature Drawings

It is just the basics, just to give you the idea of the figure. I colored it in because I want to make it nice but that is not what armature drawings look like. Remember it is simple drawings like stick figures, just that it is an idea of a human figure.

The armature is a more concrete, rigid system that hones your sense of proportion and is an easy and clear way to build a pose. Gesture drawings are an important skill to master, but for now, stick with the armature as a way to help you see beyond the surface of your subject.

The Draw of the Head

The first step is to draw an oval for the head, starting with the head establishes the proportion for the rest of the body.

When drawing an oval, you don’t need to go around and around. Just draw an ellipse in a single line once around or so. It will help you practice drawing circles of various sizes and elongations until you can draw a simple oval shape consistently.

The neckline generally represents the spine. The neck bends and twists to a large degree, so be sure you give it curvature. Even when someone looks straight forward you can see the natural curvature of the neck profile.

Drawing the Torso

If you draw the line of the torso the lines follow the general motion of the spine but don’t draw the curves of the spine.

This exercise is to capture the general movement of the torso down to the hips.

Draw the Hips

On the armature, the hips are represented by a straight line that is at a 90-degree angle from the base of the spine. This is easy to figure out how to draw the hipline.

Facing forward, the hips are wider than the head. But as the body turns to the side, this line foreshortens and cou8ld be as small as a single point.

Drawing the Legs

Legs should be about as long as the head, neck, and torso, combined bending in the middle for the knee. Add a simple line to indicate the direction of the feet and to anchor your figure to the ground.

Drawing the Shoulders and Arms

Each shoulder moves independently, so they aren’t represented by a straight line like the hips are. When the shoulder is shrugged or rotated forward, the shoulder line should reflect this with a curved line.
