Learn how to imagine objects in various camera angles and build them (draw) from simple shapes.
In this tutorial you will be given the steps to draw various common objects from different angles from your imagination. Rather than learning to draw from observation - visualizing is a powerful skill that will fill in the gaps when you can't find the perfect reference photos to work from.
Some of what you will learn:
- Drawing from the shoulder instead of the wrist and fingers.
- Fast lines vs slow lines.
- All objects begin from 3-4 simple shapes.
- Drawing in perspective - rules review.
- Finding the center line on all objects to give reference points for details.
- Visualizing an object before drawing it.
- Applying visualization skills to your own illustration work.
