Online Figure Drawing
In this next session of online figure drawing you will learn how animation and figure drawing work together. You will use video reference as you study the human figure and animate it.
Online figure drawing is difficult because traditionally figure drawing is done in an art studio or some kind of large space. In our animation school we encourage you to find a figure drawing workshop or class near you to draw from life, but our class trains you to analyze the model and interpret what you see as a three dimensional object. It doesn’t matter if you’re observing from life or from a video. Once you learn how to properly see the model you can draw with sold forms!
In this course you will train your eyes to move simple forms around and combind them with motion so that you achieve solid animation habits. It is not hard to see how animation and figure drawing work hand in hand when you consider so many of our animated characters are basically anthropomorphic animals and creatures.
When you understand the human form as a construct you can move them around with ease. In this day and age video reference is used in all studios. In this course you will get use to using video footage to create your animation.
This course is one course in our series on figure drawing, the prerequisite for this course include Figure Drawing 103 and Animation 201
In the next 10 weeks you will learn the following:
- Drawing from photos and doing a 4 drawing turn around
- 360 degree rotation of seated figure
- Inbetweening the rotating figure
- correcting your drawing using video reference
- creating a timing chart from video reference
- Analyzing the timing chart for key frames and gestures
- Correcting and construing gestures
- Animate the figure using reference straight ahead.
What Will You Learn?
- Learn and practice drawing the human figure
- Learn to animate the human figure
- Get credit towards your diploma
- Become a better artist
