In this part of the Drawing Fundamentals Made Simple series, you're going to learn the foundational skills and perspective principles that will allow you to draw from your imagination.

In the first section of this course, we'll begin by learning the basics of perspective drawing. You'll learn concepts like the horizon line, vanishing points, line convergence and how to use them to create 3D objects and scenes. We'll cover how one and two-point perspective work… and then we'll go through step-by-step exercises where you can practice drawing simple boxes and modify them to create a variety of shapes.

Once you're comfortable with constructing boxes, we'll apply this knowledge to drawing actual 3D objects from imagination. We'll do this in both one and two-point perspectives.

Now that you have a good understanding of how to draw boxy objects, in the next section, we'll cover curved objects. You'll learn the simple rules that explain how ellipse and circle perspective works and how to use them to draw cylinders at various angles.

Then we'll go through a bunch of different exercises where you'll learn how to combine boxes and cylinders to create all sorts of everyday objects.

Lastly in the final section, we'll dive into drawing spherical forms. Again, you'll learn how to use perspective to create three-dimensional spheres.

And we'll go through lots of examples of how to use this knowledge to draw even more complex subjects.

By the end of this course, you'll have a good understanding of how to draw boxes, cylinders, and spheres and how to use them to construct more complex objects from your imagination.

This course was designed for beginning and intermediate artists who want to build a solid foundation in constructive drawing.

All the concepts are explained in a clear & easy to understand manner and you'll get lots of step-by-step examples to help you deepen your understanding.

This course is part of the Drawing Fundamentals Made Simple Series.

Teacher

I am a professional artist and teacher and have taught thousands of students how to draw the head and figure through my courses and online videos.

My strength as a teacher comes from my ability to deconstruct complex subjects into manageable concepts. And my attention to detail helps me to explain these concepts in a way that is very approachable to students.

In order to make sure my courses contain the best available information, I am constantly researching, studying, and training to improve my artistic skills.
