Hello and welcome to “Back to the Drawing Board” with Woody Woodman; a former Disney storyboard artist working on films like Mulan, Tarzan, Treasure Planet and Brother Bear. After 20 years working in the animation industry I have learned a great many things about telling stories with drawings from many great artists and would like to share this knowledge with you. In this book “Drawing People,” I will cover the rules and tools of design and explain several different drawing methods to help you improve your understanding of drawing the human figure with movement, proper proportions, and a sense of weight and depth. On top of my examples and explanations of my process, I also included side by side student examples so you can see some of the common mistakes that are made when learning to draw people. This foundation will allow you to improve communication and compose figures to help tell stories with your drawings.
