Upside Down

No, you don't have to stand on your head to do the next exercise Copy the image on this page, then later, the one on page 18, just as they are, upside down if you turn them right side up, it will put you at a disadvantage. These images are already exaggerated and somewhat goofy, so don't be concerned if you make them look strange or out of proportion. They already are. In fact, you'll probably improve them. Keep your paper upside down until you finish drawing. If you turn it around before then,...

Kinds Of Clouds

Pencil Draw Cirrus Clouds

Clouds arc developed in the atmosphere by the prevailing winds, moisture and dust particles. Familiar cloud names are cirrus, which are high flyers cumulus, which are middle-level clouds and stratus, which are the low clouds. Each one of these types has other members of the same family, such as altocumulus or stratocumulus. When you go outdoors, notice the cloud shapes overhead. You'll be surprised by the variety.

The Ficure In Action Turning And Twisting

Every good action pose should have a suggestion of sweep. Perhaps I can best describe sweep by saying that the movement which immediately precedes the pose is still felt. On the following pages I have tried to show this sweep or the line that the limbs have just followed. The cartoonist can add terrifically to the sense of motion by drawing his sweep with lines back of a moving hand or foot. The only way to get sweep in the line is to have your model go through the entire movement and observe...

Creating The Illusion Of Form

Form Drawing Examples

As with some of the earlier examples in the previous sections I have here shown other methods using different pen, ink and brush techniques to create the illusion of form on a two dimensional surface. The first method I have used employs a flat head brush and a series of washes to give the illusion of a sphere. Firstly draw the sphere outline and horizon line at the back to create the composition. Draw also the shape of the shadow. Start by using the Indian ink in the most dark and opaque...

The over-all proportions of the female head van- only slightly from those of the male head, but the bone and muscle structure Is lighter and less prominent.

History

Sketches Female Ballet Figure

SINCE the beginning of time men have been interested in drawing but the ability to make drawings of the human figure came long after bison, mammoths, antelopes, etc. I don't know why this was so, but if you look at early prehistoric cave paintings the humans are usually just little matchstick-like objects over which the wild horses and bison tower like skyscrapers. Not until long after primitive draughtsmen mastered the drawing of animals did their studies of humans begin. Early Egyptian...

It is sufficient to portray only the motif or the detail that you wish to emphasize, enlarging the area of interest and bringing it into close-up, using a technique common in cinema and photography. Each picture drawn serves to highlight a detail which must be clearly portrayed, in order to facilitate the faithful interpretation of the...

When you portray a human body it is necessary to remember that you are depicting something that is alive, and in the specific case of fashion design, it is fundamental to observe closely the typical movements which characterize the poses adopted by the models.
