Methods of Drawing Sketching an idea is drawn freehand in any way that suits the idea you have. For Drawing, an idea is drawn using drawing methods such as Oblique and Isometric. These are 3D methods and allow us to see three sides of an object. See below the example of 2D and 3D
Isometric Drawing Another method of drawing in 3D is Isometric and shows each side shown equally. Each side shown is displayed at an angle of 30 degrees from the horizontal. see below
Lesson 4 - Recap of work done and have a go at drawing a phone freehand in isometric.
Homework - Now use 2D Design to draw the same phone
