GRDE360 Sketching for Animation

[1–2, 2 cr.]

This course examines the concepts and techniques for animation.  Emphasis is placed on developing the drawing and sketching skill sets particular to the practice of animation both 2D and 3D. It is designed to build a solid foundation in drawing the human figure in motion and to develop a strong draftsmanship of traditional drawing skills. Through life drawing students gain an opportunity to further their animation skills by focusing on what’s most important in the pose. Basic anatomy is the focus, along with exploring different elements of the human body. These skills and knowledge will be necessary and beneficial in the creation of animation projects in the advance animation courses.
