AlphabeThursday - S is for Stick Figure

Do you remember reading The Princess and the Pea?  I recall the story, but I didn’t remember it took all of 3 minutes to read!  The Princess and the Pea is my third fairy tale for my class, Year of the Fairy Tale.  Our research and discovery period included three elements: princess, pea and bed, which were used to compose and design in child-like fashion.


The drawing assignment included using crayons to draw stick figures.  I always thought stick figures were unattractive, but after putting black clothing on my black figures, I thought the skinny shapes looked attractive.  Much better than my red clothes!  If you want to practice drawing figures, try www.posemaniacs.com   That’s where I went.


Don’t forget to come by Ms. Jenny’s site, Off on my Tangent
and see what other bloggers have chosen for their Letter S?

I think maybe the black looks better because the stick body is not showing through -- interesting the way you can portray movement so well with a few lines :)
The Princess and the Pea is a short one! I always liked the pictures of all the quilts stacked up!

simple lines with good movement. That was an interesting exercise using only crayons.

Amazing that you can portrait motion with just a few lines. I also like the black clothes on the stick figure more, probably because the black body isn't shining through.
