I've been practicing Sight-Size on Bargues for about a month and half
already, and so I've decided to try something different by copying a
figure drawing by just using measuring.
I've found this more difficult and a bit complicated than Sight-size,
and this caused me to not fully grasp the procedure. I guess my main
problem is the placing of salient points after I've drawn the vertical
and placed the top, bottom and middle marks. This is where I get lost.
How should I start placing points? How do I locate the placement of
these points? It would be great if you guys can give me tips or
techniques. A visual demonstration would help a lot if it's available.
I use a thin brush as my plumbline, by the way.
I will post the copy I've drawn of Andrew Loomis' drawing here, as well as the original. There's a lot of errors in measuring
as I'm not sure of what I was doing. Basically, my drawing was done
mostly by eye. You'll also notice that the hand is cut off as the
drawing was too large for the scanner.
