Through the figure, we have a quick refresher of the six drawing styles introduced in the first course. One point perspective is discussed and demonstrated so you can add multiple figures to a composition. Based on Andrew Loomis' "Ideal Proportions" from his book "Figure Drawing for all its Worth." Peggi demonstrates the tools used to introduce character and animation to the figure. See some video stills here.

Dot System of Anatomy & Lyrical vs. Angular Line: Class #1
The Potential of the 10 Step Value Scale: Class# 2
Pattern Painting: Class #3
Exploring the Effects of Light on Color: Class #4

Assignment: Use dots for proportion and draw the figure with an angular (rectilinear) line. For second assignment experiment with angular juxtaposed with curvilinear.
