In this course we will focus on the fundamentals of digital drawing. We'll begin by learning about some of the basic types of line and the tools used to create these lines. From there, we'll use both contour and blind contour lines to explore the basic shapes of an object and learn how construction lines can assist us in drawing these shapes. Next we'll learn what value is and discuss some techniques for creating value using line. Finally we'll practice simplifying more complex objects into basic shapes so that they are easier to draw.
