I’ve been working through the basics course, with my primary focus being accurate measuring.
Using a notional space box (or envelope), angles, and comparative measuring I get.
During the seeing shadow shapes screencast, it is mentioned that:
– Putting down shapes of tone early on, helps you get the proportions (correctly) better than just drawing with line alone. Why?
1. Is this because you can then use the shapes of tone as a benchmark for further comparative measuring in other parts of the drawing?
2. How important is it to get these early shapes of tone on your paper accurately?
3. How do you get these first shapes of tone down accurately?
I hope these questions make sense.
