Dynamic Drawing Link post! handouts and notes from my class.
I was writing my students, at the end of pre class notes I include links to stuff i've posted on the class FB page and class related stuff from the home site. I thought i'd share some of these links here too. Also if the upload takes, you'll find HD copies of pages from a handout for the class. There's some really amazing teaching material a url away these days. -------- Nsio explains: Foreshortening! Great cheat-sheet explainer here. They have many more posted on the profile as well. http://nsio.deviantart.com/art/Nsio-explains-Foreshortening-427366531 -------- This is a lovely visual metaphor. https://www.facebook.com/dynamicdrawingatsyn/posts/347191945483603 -------- I brought up stolen edges and tangents, and how they can work for you sometimes. https://www.facebook.com/medicina.veterinaria/photos/a.135904329774103.16366.129645703733299/621321944565670/?type=1 -------- Jason Battsâ€Ž practicing with a Pentel Pocket Brush and Speedball quills over David Finch's Wonder Woman #38 p.9 https://www.facebook.com/groups/comicbookinker/permalink/10153205832169225/ -------- "Coloring Isn't Just For Kids.
