Course Duration: You can choose to study from one week to one month or longer.
In the preceding Cast Drawing module, students learn the sight-size method which involves envisaging the cast in geometric form, rendering it in precise outline, identifying shadow shapes, and finally modeling it to give the illusion of three-dimensions.
Sight-size is a powerful technique. However, you need to be able to work outside the studio, or in other situations where this technique cannot be applied. In this module, in order to balance the previous work in sight-size, you draw casts using proportional relationships freehand in charcoal or pencil, with modeling techniques appropriate to the drawing medium.
