Foreshortening cross contour exercise
Here are some images to practise with that go along with the exercise we talked about in the foreshortening exercises lesson. First we will provide a version with just the lines, and then the photo, so draw the lines first and then try to add the arm. The main thing to get right with the lines are the distances and curvature. You can align each set of lines to each other to help get the distances right. Sorry about the armpit hair 😉
Here are some further photos you can use for the exercise, this time trying to just see the lines even though the arm is still there:
