A Study on the Face

The human face is full of shapes and textures. There is so much to the drawing of a face! I think that this has so much to do with recognition of expression and aesthetics. The first thing I want to do is have you all do your best to draw a face of anyone you would like. We will then analyze in the next lesson how to draw the face. No cheating now! If you do not know who to draw, you can draw this baby face that I drew a while ago. Try not to research to deeply yet on the face....just draw one. I will not be mean; I promise. For some this may be a simple review. I understand. Have fun! =)

How to draw objects with reflections

Drawing reflections can be difficult, but they can also be a ton of fun. There are many different types of reflections. You can look at my Porsche drawing and notice many of these types of reflection. Metals, plastics, liquids, and just about any type of surface is capable of producing a reflection. I chose to draw a Christmas ornament. It is simple in its shape and easy to interpret the reflection. Lets get started.

Drawing a Cherry

I thought that we should continue to focus in on some still life. Take your time with this exercise if you can, so that you can study the pressure you are applying to the page. You need to get into a habit of developing your style and technique. See if you can use the artist scribble.

Porsche 911 turbo

I know that I have blog about this drawing a has been my consuming piece as of late! I thought that I would be done last night! But, alas i only got this far. But I am going to finished it tonight even if I have to use my own blood! Not really though.

The Art Scribble

Many young artist will have recognizable troubles with the way there lines and shading appear. In other words, the shading may seem inconsistent, and the couture lines seem predictable and flat. Do not be discouraged if this is you! It will take time, but eventually you will be able to hide those weaknesses and turn them into strengths! I think that learning to art scribble will help develop control and make the harder things easier. I have put an exercise together to help. Practice this once a week, and you will see results throughout your drawings.

Practice Draw what you see

It is truly important to visual take the time to study your Subject! This may seem obvious, yet young artist seem to miss the obvious all too much! I will often look at objects through an artist eye. Meaning, I will try to see Light and Dark, shading, and basic shapes. If you practice this, you will be able to improve your observing skills. I found that I learned the most when I watched another artist work.

Draw What you See!

In this next exercise we need to learn to draw what we see, not what we think that we see. You will see below, two different drawings. The one on the left is without looking at the page, and drawing what I thought that I was seeing. The drawing on the right is an example of drawing what I was seeing not what I thought I was seeing.

Now you can try. Try to draw something in front of you without looking at the page first; then it while drawing what you are actually seeing.

How to draw from a one point perspective

Perspective is everything! Even in our lives in general; it is everything sometimes even past the truth. In one sense perspective is based on the artist. In other words, an artist can choose to break the rules; however, there are some universal truths about perspective that will help you drawings come to life. Lets try One Point Perspective and then two...
I hope that this helped...just post a question if you Have any.
