In this lesson, master artist Glenn Vilppu demonstrates how to go from a compositional idea to a more developed compositional drawing. You will learn how to use previous drawings and sketches as well as photographs as raw materials for new compositions that lead the eye through the piece, and create strong visual dynamics. You will also learn how to change and add to your subject from imagination to push the design.
