In CONTOURS you’ll learn to draw complex, volumetric form using three kinds of contour lines. First, you’ll learn to craft a detailed outside contour. Next you’ll learn to draw inner contours and overlaps that will describe any subject with great depth. Finally, you’ll learn to draw using cross contour lines to create the illusion of dramatic volume and deep space. By the end of this course, you’ll understand how to combine different kinds of contour lines to dynamically draw any form. You’ll even learn foreshortening, one of the most sought after drawing skills.
In this course you’ll learn:
How to craft compelling contour drawings.
How to use overlaps and inner contours to create the illusion of volume in your drawings.
How to draw using cross contour lines that describe the topography of a subject in great detail.
How to use atmospheric perspective to give drawing a great sense of depth.
How to use foreshortening in your drawings.
CONTOURS is a remarkable course that will teach you how to draw one day at a time. Here’s how it works: Each day you’ll watch one video lesson that will introduce an essential drawing skill, and then do the recommended practice.
During this course you’ll create a series of drawing each focusing on a different measuring technique. By the end of the course you’ll be able to use a wide range of measuring techniques in your drawings.
This course is overflowing with powerful insights into the drawing process and offers some of the clearest, most accessible drawing instruction available. Many of the tools and techniques you’ll learn here are rarely seen outside of private art academies.
