Lesson 1 : Understanding Subject Matter
00:25:33

Meet Paul Heaston and get started sketching your point of view. To begin, you'll learn to look for scenes instead of objects. Then, find out how to simplify the scene when drawing cluttered spaces. Paul will also help you differentiate between sketching and illustrating, so you can draw what you see instead of what you think you see.

Lesson 2 : Value
00:15:55

Learn how value allows you to ground the objects you're sketching, as well as help you bring further context and dimension to your scene. Before moving on, Paul will give you tips for adding value to complicated scenes with multiple objects and textures.

Lesson 3 : Proportion & Scale
00:17:06

Don't get frustrated by foreshortening; find out how to apply it to achieve a more realistic sense of space. You'll also explore how to use an anchor point to set up the scale for a larger scene. Finally, Paul will show you how to work from the foreground to the background to achieve realistic proportions while sketching a busy scene.

Lesson 4 : Intuitive Perspective
00:17:38

Get a refresher on using perspective in your work, without being overly precise. Paul will make both one-point and two-point perspective more intuitive, before he helps you draw a busy interior space using two-point perspective.

Lesson 5 : Wide-Angle Exterior
