  6. You can tell if the texture of the fabric you’re looking at is reflective because the edges between light and shadow areas are blurred and difficult to dene.
  7. The values in the reflections you draw always be darker than the highlights of the reflective object because reflected light is always brighter than direct light because the object being reflected does not absorb the light.
  8. Which of the basic shapes is created by creased fabric?
  9. At what point in your drawing should you render any pattern in the fabric?
  10. What is the greatest danger in drawing such a starburst?

  3. Which of the four basic shapes predominates in the human figure?
  4. The best way to quickly establish the volume of the figure is to take it piece by piece.
  5. In addition to knowledge of the ideal proportions of the head, what techniques are used to capture an accurate likeness?
  6. What is the midpoint of the average human figure when standing?
  7. In Figure Drawing, the energy or the essence of the pose if referring to:
  8. How many heads high is the average or ideal human figure when standing?
  9. is a variation of linear perspective, in which objects that are close appear larger than objects that are farther away.
  10. The two basic shapes found in the hands and feet are a rectangular shape for the palm and foot and cylinders for the fingers and toes.
