Question Principles of Drawing and Painting - What methods have you learned?

Hello everyone,

I'm curious to know what drawing and principles (both traditional and digital) you have learned in school and elsewhere. Everyone has a different approach that they have learned or been taught, and I am curious as to what those methods are.

Intervain mentioned an interesting principle here:

Quote: For me personally it's fascinating how a figure can be boiled down to simple shapes that one wouldn't necesarrily think of... When I fist went to a life drawing class our teacher made us draw the lines for hips and arms first - you know if one goes upwards the other one goes in another direction - every time! It's amazing that it's so simple. It's always what I start from when drawing a human body nowadays... just two simple lines and it makes everything sit in place when I establish their angles + the line of action of the body...

I'm curious to know what Drawing and Painting Principles others have learned, and what their sources are. Feel free to post pictures or demos if you feel so inclined!
