  • 18. Let’s Get Started – Contour Drawing
    • Contour drawing is drawing the outline.
      • This is to focus only on the overall shape of the object.
      • main reason of the drawing is to define the proportions
      • Minimal detail will be represented
      • main reason of the drawing is to define the proportions
    • Select a single viewpoint and stick to it.
      • Sit so that they can reach there paper with minimal movement.
      • Always have their head in the same place whenever they look at the object
        • This will keep the shapes in the same locaton at all times
        • small movement = big differences
