I personally recommend to buy this ebook. The quality is excellent and for this low price and 100% Money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose.

Taking the first steps in color drawing

Before you begin, please read all of the instructions. I will use the Degas drawing on pink paper (Figure 11-6) as the basis for instructions, but please choose any subject that appeals to you a group of objects for a still-life drawing, a person who will pose for a figure drawing or a portrait, another reproduction of a master drawing, a photograph that appeals to you, or a self-portrait (the artist always has one available model ). 1. Choose a sheet of colored paper, not necessarily pink. 2....

Construction Of The Head

Female Anatomy Line Drawings

First draw an outline of the head, then check to see that it will take but four lines. Number one line is to be drawn first, number two line next, three and four to follow numerically. Number one line is drawn down the face touching the root and base of the nose. Number two line from the base of the ear at a right angle to number one, with no relation to the face as to where this line crosses. Number three line is drawn from the cheek bone at its greatest width to the outer border of the chin....

Overlap and Tangents

How Draw Foreshortened Arm

Let's address some visual rules of space. The first visual rule is overlap. See how it is that shape 1. is closest to us and 11 is furthest away. This is all done with overlap. Overlap occurs when one line stops as it touches another. This makes it appear as though it has gone behind it. The circles in the bottom left corner also give us this depth effect. I have heard some instructors call this the T rule because of the intersection creating a T. At Disney they made a huge fuss about tangents,...

Anatomy as Shape

How Draw Human Figures Showing Bicep

Forceful shapes can get more specific. I want to discuss some powerful theories about the anatomy of the body that pertain to force and rhythm as seen by forceful shape. The body, as I said earlier, is built to move. Its musculature is set up in traverse angles from one area in the figure to another. These relationships allow it to perform. If you work out or you are a physical therapist, you know exactly what I am talking about. The biceps are opposite in f unction to the triceps. The biceps...

The Moving View

Window Section Drawings

Before the 1900s artists would realise the world from one point or view. The viewer would be presented with that view and would understand the scene from that perspective. This was a traditional way of presenting our understanding of the world two dimensionally that had been used for centuries in a western cultural ideal. However, our attitudes began to change at the beginning of the 20th century, and other ways of seeing began to be explored. Our attitude to the one point view began to change....

No Forward Articouwon Here

Charcoal Drawing The Human Posture

Upright posture is maintained by the sacrospinalis muscles in the back, which bind the spine tightly to the pelvis and hold the torso erect, and by the gluteus maximus muscle of the buttock, which holds the trunk upright on the legs. As we noted in Chapter 2, strong ligaments at the front of the groin prevent backward articulation of the thigh, while others at the back of the knee prevent forward articulation of the knee joint. In a normal standing posture, the hip is slightly forward of the...

Brush Technique

Skull Column Brush

Brush and ink is an excellent mediurn for drawing animols. Since the fur textures of animals vary, your brush technique will vary olso. To show the high sheen of a race horse, for example, I keep my brush stroke thin, close together, ond even, leaving open areas to suggest high lights. Shagginess, which is a characteristic of some camcis, dogs, etc., may be conveyed by a dry-brush style. This is obtained by thinning out your brush on scratch paper after you have dipped it in ink. The desire...

Bigigrade

Lioness Head Pencil Drawings

Here you con see that the shape of the lion was my approach. I love the size of his mane and head. With digi-grade and unguligrade mammals, I make quick straight-line references of the legs for their angles. The seated lion is also shape-based with force and form in mind. I like the subtle hard moment captured in his right shoulder. The smaller drawing has force, form, and shape. This has to be one of my favorite animals in the zoo. The black rhino is so powerful and beautiful. I loved watching...

We have squeezed depth on both the vertical and horizontal planes with each having two points of convergence. This is the world of perspective we live in.

Tips On Drawing Animals

Bears have a tendency to be pigeon-toed. The paws of the cat family spread out slightly. Most hoofed animals are slightly knock-kneed more so when they're young. Always indicate skeleton bones,- these will hold the sketch together.

When a character entering a scene reached the spot for his next action, he often came to a sudden and complete stop. This was stiff and did not look natural, but nobody knew what to do about it. Walt was concerned. Things don't come to a stop all at once, guys first there's one part and then another. Several different ways were eventually found to correct these conditions they were called either Follow Through or Overlapping Action and no one really knew where one ended and the other began....

Spiral Folds

Fabric Fold Pencil Sketches

No matter how complicated the fold appears, it can be traced to a few basic principles. These few principles should be catalogued and kept as far apart in the mind as possible. One should be able to draw at all times, any one of these seven distinctive characters without notes or a model. Think of the part they play so that when confronted by the costumed model, you are less liable to get lost in depicting these ever changing folds.

Many beginning artists try to copy the dramatic hand poses of the pros without first taking a look at the basic construction of the hand. Don't make the mistake of guessing on this important anatomical feature. I can evaluate the caliber of an artist by his or her ability to draw hands and so can everyone else. Each finger has three distinct joints that are marked with creases on both sides of the hand. Even on men's hands, the fingers taper at the ends. Look at the skeletal diagram of the hand...

The muscles m the lower limbs present a more complex form, but after a detailed analysis you will be able to recognize each of them. The lower limbs are made up of two essential parts the thigh, where the quadriceps and the sartorius muscle lies, and the leg itself, which consists of the bulk of the tibiae and the calves. The knee lies between these two parts. The knee is the joint that articulates both of these parts, and it should look rounded and prominent when it is drawn. Notice that if...

The Open Drawing

In suggesting the form instead of explaining it completely, the open drawing requires a more poetic treatment, allowing the spectator to complete it in her own imagination. The open drawing, through its brevity and immediacy, can also be a medium for crystallizing ideas. It is accomplished by suggesting certain areas rather than completing them, subtracting a fragment of the drawing for the purpose of interesting the viewer or drawing her attention toward that point and allowing her imagination...

Compressed Charcoal Drawing Drapery

Example Painting Drapery For Still Life

Historically drapery has been used for centuries by artists and studied by students and artists apprentices. One has to go no further than the drapery studies of Leonardo da Vinci to see it was an integral part of their research.

Many artists in the past would use drapery as compositional device to create an underlying structure for...

The Downward Gaze Vs The Closing

Gaze Diagram

The trickiest part of drawing the downward gaze is to not merely end up with a closed-looking eye. When the eyes simply close, the iris and pupil are covered in the process in the downward gaze, the eye leaves open a space large enough for the pupil to see through. This is accomplished by the bowing downward of the lower lid. A telltale crease, the signature fold for this action, appears below the lid as it moves. As the gaze drops further, the bow gets sharper and the crease deepens. The dip...

There's a lot of mass on the back and behind the arms, especially on big characters. Notice, too, that the upper body is defined by bunches of muscle groups while the legs are defined by longer, leaner muscles. There are two separate muscles located between the biceps and the triceps in the inner view of the upper arm the triceps brachii and...

Cam follower motions

How Draw Camshaft Specifications

1 Uniform velocity This motion is used where the follower is required to rise or fall at a constant speed, and is often referred to as straight-line motion. Part of a uniform-velocity cam graph is shown in Fig. 24.2. Abrupt changes in velocity with high-speed cams result in large accelerations and cause the followers to jerk or chatter. To reduce the shock on the follower, the cam graph can be modified as indicated in Fig. 24.3 by adding radii to remove the sharp corners. However, this action...

Stylization

Fashion Designers

By the term stylization is understood the exaggeration of the structure of the body, reducing it to a few essential features. There are various ways of stylizing a figure, and one of them is to elongate the height of the model by one or two units of measure. As you will see in the two diagrams, the proportions have remained unchanged in every instance, that is to say that the anatomy of the figure has remained the same while the length of the limbs and principal parts of the body has been...

Application of concepts

Dog Fetlock

Conceptualization of body volumes is highly subjective. There are no hard-and-fast rules, but rather each artist, through a knowledge of anatomy and direct observation from life, creates a set of volume conceptions. By conceiving accurately shaped, directed, and articulated body volumes, which then have the details of anatomy engraved upon them, the artist can create dynamically rendered and convincing animal art. The following drawings show the axes and major volumes of various animals. The...

The Clenched Fist

Again, similar hands can express significant differences.

Threads are so regularly used on engineering drawings that recognizable conventions are required to save draughting time. Figure 15.12 shows the convention for a male thread. The thread runout along the shank of the stud is indicated by a line drawn at 30 to the thread axis. The minor diameter of the thread is shown by parallel lines and in the end elevation the projected circle is not continuous. The break in the inside circle distinguishes the end elevation of a male thread from a female...

Weight balance movement

Sketch The Human Figure Motion

Every body has a center of mass an imaginary point where gravity grabs a hold and pulls you down. Because the upper body is heavier than the legs, this point is located somewhat above the middle in a human being, in the underbelly between the tops of the hip bone crests. That is, if you're standing up straight. As soon as you bend over, extend an arm, or stick out your tongue, the point of mass moves along. To determine if a figure is balanced or not, draw a plumb line from the center of mass...
