Let's Draw Foreshortening by RobynRose Let's Draw Foreshortening by RobynRose
I had a request to do some foreshortening.
Hope this helps with figures!

This stock is not intended for photoshopping, it is made for drawing reference.

NOTES:

- Notice the size of the hand when parallel to the face? (first photo) Now look at the size when the hand is fully outstretched towards the camera. For foreshortening any distance, the size of the hand will only be between the smallest and largest size when between the figure and the camera.

- In the photo where my arms are fully outstretched, The distance from the tip of my middle finger to the bottom of my palm is roughly the same as the height of my head from hair to chin.

- Notice how the shadows curve and fade underneath the arms in photos where you can see the bottom side.

- In photos 4 and 5, my arms remain roughly the same size at the wrist AND shoulder. They do not taper in size either way.
