Drawing & Illustrating from Reference Materials (ONLINE) IL 600ED_ON

with Kate Samworth


Photographs, reference books, and online sources are great tools for the artist/illustrator when used effectively. Learn how to derive the information you need from photos without copying, to establish a light source and create volume and atmosphere from the imagination, and to convey the volume and gesture of figures taken from photographs.  Subject matter will include people, animals, and landscapes from images provided by the instructor or from personal source material.  Instruction will focus on drawing media, with the option to finish projects in color.  Avoid both copyright infringement and the pitfalls of working from photos with helpful advice from a professional in the illustration industry.
