Quadmester 03: Drawing Diagnostic 01 Unit 1: Drawing Fundamentals (Submit work in Dropbox) Let's gauge our drawing communications skill sets at the beginning of our course, without any judgment, we will all evolve our skill sets to ongoing practice, including myself as your Teacher.
The entire activity is to be done on paper and then placed into Google slides as a PDF doc for submission.
Column Submission 01-Practice Drawing Circles, Square and Rectangles Column Submission 02-Practice Drawing Spheres, Cubes and Cylinders Column Submission 03-Practice Drawing Elongated Spheres, Curved Cylinders, and Curved Rectangular Boxes.
Drawing Fundamentals Activity 01: Applied Geometry Preparation for our logo design work, requires us to build on our previously practised and acquired skills. This time there will be even more emphasis placed to going over our line work, to build readable shape and silhouettes. Please review the TWO practice sheets for everyone to work on, prior to commencing on our Logo Designs. I can not emphasize it enough, practising the fundamentals drawing skill sets and incorporating Applied Geometry into your work will yield great results. Both sheets are to be submitted, with a title bar, course info into our Dropbox in Brightspace.
Drawing Fundamentals Activity 02: Game Art First steps: Build Fundamental Drawing/Communications Skills Practice creating parallel lines, ovals, squares, simple geometric shapes, then progress to sketching cylinders, spheres, cubes and cones.
Application of Skill Sets: Generating simple parallel and diagonal lines, creating boxes that eventually can become furniture objects. Creating simple oval shapes that can evolve to become cylinders, cylinders to vessels, candles, and or potion bottles; developing a tool belt that yields so many possibilities, options are generated, by incorporating simple primitive shapes as the underlying structure of our concept art and designs.
Example 01, an isometric box can become a manuscript, a table, a bench, a crate and so forth; it is all the same volumetric shape.
Activity 03: Robot Character Shapes Drawing Simple Lines, Shapes, Primitives, progressing to adding and creating curvilinear forms In the Grade 11 Com Tech Animation course, these skill sets are foundational and will be incorporated towards building Gesture and Figure Drawings.
