    How do you foreshorten figure drawings?

    A:

    To foreshorten figure drawings, find the planes of the figure, determine the relative distance between you and the subject for each plane, then use the rules of perspective to join the planes. The rules of perspective state that as objects move away from the viewer, they appear smaller and narrower. An example is a tree-lined street where the trees are drawn smaller and closer together as they recede into the distance.You need a pencil or pen, a sketch pad and a live-figure model.
