Expressive Figure Drawing

Opinions on stick figures/expressions?

It seems to me that drawing stick figures does more than help get the proportions right. A stick figure is more than the skeleton on which I am placing mass, it’s also the soul of the expression of the finished form. Practicing expressions using stick figures will translate into better, more expressive figure drawings, yes? It’s so much faster than the full drawing.

Today I drew some stick drawings to demonstrate passive forms for the people I teach English. I showed them the difference between

A hamburger has been eaten by Rebecca.
and
Rebecca has been eaten by a Hamburger.

So I think they’re very useful, you can demonstrate everything you need very quickly and efficiently, and focus on just what is important for you, gestures or actions or whatever.
