DRAWING CHECKPOINT 2 Drawing Checkpoint Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings illustrate his interest in anatomy, science, and religion. The drawings of the human anatomy show that he studied the human form intensely and captured every detail. This is evident in the drawing Principle Organs and Vascular and Urino- Genital Systems of a Woman. The detail in this drawing is accurately portrayed to the point that you would see in an actually medical reference. Da Vinci’s interest in science brought him to sketch species of animals, studies of nature, and various inventions. Da Vinci was an inventor as well as an artist. The sketches of the flying machine, the boat, and different devices can be attributed to his imagination and artistic ability. The functions of Da Vinci’s drawings were to sketch out his ideas before he would turn them into great works of art. Michelangelo, too, admired and studied the world around him.

Unformatted text preview: He was an architect but considered himself a sculptor. (British Museum) He would sketch his works in chalk before turning them into sculptures or architecture. He captured every detail of the heroic and idealized male form. (British Museum) Like Da Vinci, Michelangelo made the human form seem graceful and turned them into works of art with the way they were posed. In the example of the tomb for the Medici, the form that is Day is in a position that in real life would be extraordinarily uncomfortable but Michelangelo makes the sculpture look graceful. The drawing of the eyes in the example on the British Museum shows an accurate amount of detail. It was this type of detail that Michelangelo desired his pupils to understand and be able to mimic in their own art. DRAWING CHECKPOINT 3 Reference The British Museum. (na). Michelangelo.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
