14. Semester's final task (Fitting our collected and simplified        mid-semester figures into the first stage of an imaginary        theatrical scene determined through orthogonal pictures)
   15. Eligible home works: a) Human body studies: face and hand expressions, face details or: b) Building           scuplture and similar details


     The perspective view revives if it contains scenes relating to the building's function. We may choose characteristic figures and tools to each purpose. These scenes (living pictures) are made of objects and figures waiting for being fit into their designed environment.
     After having roughly learned through indoor plaster studies the main proportions of the human face and body, we shall practise the technique of "quick-drawing" via croquies. We may assemble moving people ( arriving e. g on escalator) with the help of repeting details observed on different subjects. Thus the basic figure of the crowd may be put together of parts of diverse people constantly getting into the same position.
     Our technical goal is to present linearily different scenes.


Figure + Movement + Tools + Site = a typical Scene
