Mannequin to my rescue
This is a little fellow I use now and then. When I flip thorugh magazines or browse the internet I often find a face or expression I want to draw. When I later have to add the body I sometimes get really confused. What the h**l happens below the face? This is when this mannequin comes in handy. I place it in a way that compliments the face I just drew and then I get the overall shape of the body. After that, it's so much easier to continue with the drawing.
What I like about this particular mannequin is that it has female shapes because most of them come in male versions.
This mannequin was bought at the absolutely beautiful art shop Green & Stone on King's Road in Chelsea. I'm so in love with this place and I will post some images from inside the shop later.
