Jacob Hankinson’s figure drawings show the kind of ethereal dance of light married to rock-solid structure that inspires artists and art students alike to watch his demonstrations with awe. In this video Jacob shows how he defines patterns of light and shadow, revealing figures that seem to leap off the page, with both short and long poses. Descriptions of specific materials and their use, and commentary about how he is thinking about the form beneath the shadow shapes, reveals Jacob’s process and approach in a way that allows artists to apply his techniques to their next model session with immediate results.
