Subject Title
Structural Drawing II

Subject Description
This subject continues to build on the basic skills introduced in structural drawing 1.
The focus will be on drawing the human form and practical distortions of these proportions.
There will also be a focus on character harvesting and observation from life for specific applications.

Compelling character design will also play a significant role in assignments. More advanced techniques and subjects will be introduced to provide a more in depth investigation of drawing for concept design, development and visual exploration. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional exploration will be explored. A continued subject-specific sketchbook consisting of extensive visual exploration of subject -based material will be required for final evaluation.
