Welcome to /r/ArtFundamentals, the official subreddit of drawabox.com.
All of the material I convey here is what I learned from attending Concept Design Academy in Pasadena, CA - mostly from Vis Com: Dynamic Sketching with Peter Han. His course can also be taken online at CG Master Academy.
If you are interested in pursuing art as a career, you may be able to get a taste from the lessons here, but I strongly urge you to look into learning from Peter Han directly, whose techniques come directly from Art Center College of Design's late Norman Schureman.
Though the lessons are numbered, they are also separated into different groups of curriculum. Once you've completed the basics (lessons 1 and 2), you can feel free to move onto any curriculum block you like. If you are just looking to learn everything we teach, however, following them as they are numbered would be best.
- LESSON 4: Drawing Insects and Arachnids
- LESSON 5: Drawing Animals
- LESSON 6: Drawing Everyday Objects
Figure drawing has been dropped from the curriculum, as I'm not particularly great at teaching it. There are definitely better sources out there on this topic. I'd recommend checking out Stan Prokopenko on YouTube as a start.
