    In this lesson, instructor Charles Hu will introduce you to the materials needed for dynamic sketching and provide you with several helpful drawing exercises. You will practice creating lines, circles, ellipses, boxes, and arrows. These exercises will strengthen your hand movements and prepare you for future drawing projects.

    This lesson belongs to the course Visual Development: Dynamic Sketching. In this 12-week course, Charles Hu will teach you the core fundamentals of dynamic sketching. You will learn to focus on gesture, shape, and structure while drawing various subjects. Charles will first introduce you to the materials needed for the course and give you basic drawing exercises that will help strengthen your hands’ muscle memory. From there, you will learn to manipulate organic, geometric shapes and add surface details. Charles will demonstrate drawing animal skeletons, marine animals, insects, landscapes, cars, and many more. In addition, you will explore sketching in colors using gouache. After this course, you will develop an ability to break down any 3D subject into a 2D structure, and from there, draw with confidence.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.

    On the line assignment:
    How many attempts should I try?
    How close to making a good curve should I be?

    Thank’s Daniel. Yeah, when I saw the next videos then it is all explained.
    Now I just have to finish the lines with six two eight (628) lines per line and 628 sheets of paper….
    628 seems like a so arbitrary number 😜

    Where do we submit the assignments?

    Should we be selecting our best work from all of the pieces?

    The assignment covers 26 pages (if you count each side of the paper as 1 page,) but the submission guidelines allow only 2 images (with suggested 6 pages each) to be uploaded for each assignment.

    Hi M. Jason, This is currently being updated for clarity and simplicity, but as of right now, you can submit up to 5 images with as many as 6 pages on each. I think the last image will have fewer pages, which makes sense considering you say there are 26 pages total

    I hope this helps. Keep an eye on the assignment pages for the upcoming update 🙂

    Hi Daniel. Thanks for clarifying. Unfortunately, I had submitted 2 pages of work before I saw your reply and don’t have time to get my full work scanned and compiled. I’ll definitely adjust for my output in the upcoming submissions. Thanks again. 🙂
