  • How to draw using cross contour lines that describe the topography of a subject in great detail
  • How to use atmospheric perspective to give drawings a sense of great depth
  • How to use foreshortening in your drawings

Requirements: 

  • Some drawing experience recommended. If you’re a true beginner, try The Art And Science of Drawing: Basic Skills.

Here in the sixth part of The Art And Science of Drawing series, you’ll learn to describe complex, volumetric form using three kinds of contour lines.  First, you’ll learn to craft a detailed outside contour.  Next, you’ll learn to draw inner contours and overlaps that will describe any subject with great depth. Finally, you’ll learn to draw using cross contour lines to create the illusion of dramatic volume and deep space. By the end of this course, you’ll understand how to combine different kinds of contour lines to draw any form. You’ll even be introduced to foreshortening, one of the most sought after drawing skills.

The Art And Science of Drawing is a remarkable new program that will teach you how to draw one day at a time. The program is simple – each day you’ll watch one video lesson that will introduce an essential drawing skill, and then do the recommended practice. The Art And Science of Drawing is overflowing with powerful insights into the drawing process and offers some of the clearest, most accessible drawing instruction available. Many of the tools and techniques you’ll learn here are rarely seen outside of private art academies.
