At FZD, we strongly believe in the importance of line drawings. Before enrolling, many students have never drawn much before. Instead, they dabble in badly produced digital paintings and photo-bashing - a trend that has increased dramatically in the past 5 years (read my previous blog about “don’t rush into digital paintings”).
Drawing starts on day 1 of our one year training program. By term 3, roughly 8 months into the program, most students are able to produce detailed drawings with proper proportions, line-weight, perspective, lighting and composition. More importantly, these drawings contain designed content.
Having these skills will lead to a much easier transition into advanced techniques such as digital painting.
Here are some great examples of beautiful line drawings by our current term 3 students. Hard work does pay off.
