Building on work done in ANIM1011 - Life Drawing this course aims to introduce students to the fundamental aspects of painting and drawing for animation, expanding observational drawing skills and drawing dexterity. Topics to be covered during the semester include colour theory, composition, perspective, foreshortening, structure, form, volume, line and tone. This course emphasises the acquisition of knowledge and dexterity of observational drawing and as such will include weekly live model and still life studio sessions. This course involves geometric still life compositions, landscapes and live model figure drawing. These sessions allow students to develop an understanding of composition and perspective, while continuing to build drawing dexterity to be used in subsequent courses such as ANIM2013 - Layout and ANIM3031 - 3D Animation Production.
