BASIC FORMS
A SPHERE is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space, such as the shape of a round ball.
SPHERE
CUBE
A CUBE is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square faces.
CYLINDER
A CYLINDER is a three-dimensional geometric shape that has an ellipse at the top and bottom and a round body. When drawn the two outer edges are parallel.
CONE
A CONE is a form that tapers smoothly from a base (usually flat and circular) to a point at the top.
TRADITIONAL DRAWING
is a art technique that uses an instrument/material to mark on a two dimensional / flat surface.
ex: chalk, graphite pencil, pen, pastel, & charcoal
SHAPE- Enclosed line, Flat, 2D height & width ONLY!
FORM- 3D height, width & depth. Created by adding VALUE.
LINE- A moving point made on a surface.
VALUE- Showing Lights & darks on an object (Shading)
LINES
GESTURE LINES-
Quick Scribbles to layout a composition.

CONTOUR LINES-
Inner & Outer lines of a form.
Types of "drawing"
What all goes into creating...
LIGHT SOURCE:
The direction which the light is coming from. There may be multiple light sources.

CONTRAST:
The difference between the lights and darks
in an image. High contrast creates a stronger impact on the viewer.

HIGHLIGHTS:
Distinct areas of strong light on a surface
produced by the light source.

CAST SHADOWS:
The Shadow produced as a result of the form blocking light from the light source. The cast shadow is located on the opposite side
of the light source.
VALUE
COMPOSITION
COMPOSITION is the layout of objects, shapes, or forms within a space or on a piece of paper.

5 COMPONENTS OF A SUCCESSFUL COMPOSITION:


Objects should fill the space.
More Positive (Subject Matter) than Negative (Background)

Objects should be placed in front of one another to create movement. Allows viewers eye to move through the work.

Objects should be large and moving off the edges of the paper.

Work should be equally weighted. One side should not apper heavier than the other.

Combine differing elements to create visual interest.
ex: shapes, colors, textures, lines, values
