Drawing for 3D Modeling and Animation
|Lecture hours per week|
|Lab hours per week||3|
The focus is on developing observational and visualization skills needed for rendering the figure/character, and design of compositional elements for storyboarding. Skills for character design, modeling and animation involve drawing, using knowledge of anatomy, modeling, proportion, movement, expression and abstraction of the figure. Skills for storyboarding - using drawing to incorporate composition of basic elements of design, staging, perspective, camera features, and lighting. Reference will be made to historical and contemporary drawings, and to video and animation.
