This course is designed to teach formulas that will allow students to understand common forms drawn by the working cartoonist. By introducing a basic set of formulas and rules, students will be able to draw such things as the male figure, the female figure, heads, hands and feet, among other subjects, without reference. This system can then be incorporated into one's personal style and can also be implemented to diagnose problems in one's drawings. An introduction to basic perspective will assist in placing figures and objects into complex and realistic three-dimensional scenarios. The formula templates will help students to better understand the nuances of the human form and how it moves.
