This figure drawing course for animators and art students focuses on gesture and how to capture the essential movement, dynamic expression, and the individual attitude of the model. It provides an introduction to figure drawing for animation and is designed to promote deeper understanding of life drawing that will serve as a foundation for further studies in animation and entertainment arts. Students will refine basic skills in drawing human anatomy while learning to draw the figure in sequential movement, understand weight and balance, facial and body expression, and figure invention. This course may be taken by art majors wishing to further life drawing skills and is recommended for all animation art majors.
