    In this lesson, instructor Iliya Mirochnik will teach you the fundamentals of drawing form, using simple geometric shapes such as the cube, cylinder, and cone. You will learn how to describe three-dimensional volume and construct forms from observation.

    This lesson belongs to the course Foundations of Observational Drawing. In this 8-week course, Iliya Mirochnik will share with you his knowledge of the Russian Drawing Approach; a technique that has remained nearly unaltered in Russia for over 250 years. It is an excellent tool for learning the fundamentals of observation, construction, and light theory. With the help of Iliya’s intuitive assignments, 3D models, and reference images, this course will give you a strong drawing foundation. The skills you gain from this course will benefit you through your artistic career.

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

    Hello everyone,

    I’m confused regarding the correction of the first ellipse from the second cylinder we study in this lecture.

    When we correct the angle from the top right angle of the ellipse to its top left(the diagonal), are we correcting the diagonal of the ellipse or the one of the square?

    Hope that makes sense, thanks a lot.
