Figure 2-5. Examples of complex forms
Form is adaptable. Draw basic forms based on visual reality rather than four specific
shapes. For example, draw a rectangle rather than a cube, to represent the trailer head in the
figure drawing (fig 2-6). Modify basic forms to fit the subject. Let your mind's eye accept the
image for its actual shape and draw exactly what you see. This helps to avoid symbols.
