So, I recently started with mannequinization stage of figure drawings. .
Mannequinization essentially means simplifying body parts into simple forms- eggs, spheres, tubes and boxes that interlock to create something that looks like a human form. So for example, the thigh can be visualised as a cylinder tapering down to the knee which is also simplified as a box and so on! These obviously are not the most neat looking mannequins, coz I am so heavy handed sometimes 🙄!! Will hopefully get more elegant with practice! But I love seeing some structure built upon the basic gesture-makes them feel more solid in space ! .
I hope this helps! As always used charcoal on a newsprint sketchbook 😊
