I made this chart for my seventh grade leadership class, because I got tired of drawing it once a week or so. On the other hand, 'tis a very useful tool. Fields and forms and flows, after Dave Gray, make a useful semigram or proto-alphabet for teaching basic drawing skills and the nominal elements that make up a drawing.
- The Semigram, which comes from the Greek words "dot"-"line", is my name for Dave Gray's set of symbols that form the elements of drawing.
- Maps are a great example of a field, and one of my favorites. Just making this little map was fun.
- Renaissance perspective is a lot of fun, because you get to create pictures with depth.
- Scrolling fields are originally Chinese and Japanese, but are useful on the Internet for a variety of reasons.
