    Pre-Animation or Introduction to concept art?

    Hello, this is my first post.

    I was wondering if these courses at Algonquin College:
    General Arts and Science:
    ->Pre-Animation or ->Introduction to Concept Art.

    The Concept art course looks like it HAS more courses on art in general, such as colour theory and a few other things then Pre-Animation seems to have.

    Okay, so my question is, Which course would be best to take it a semi-drawer who has only drawn one penciled picture of a guys face *no ears must a i add and it took me about 28 hrs to do...eyes scare me*

    Which one *if anyone here has taken one or the other*
    is best suited i supposed for someone who wants to just "learn to draw", i haven't taken any art classes in my entirety, "excluding high-school" ..that i never paid any attention to.

    Thank you and if i seem to ramble, I apologize lol.

    Awaiting your hasty reply,

    Amanda Cardinal

    I can tell you about the Pre animation program, but If you want me to be 100% honnest you have to send me a private message, but just like that I can tell you. You will learn a lot about animation way of doing characters design and layout and life drawing they use a classical approach first then its more animation style
