When you first start to draw,  it won’t t be anything like this.So,

just look and take it in, see the way he holds the pencil.  Notice his

pencil strokes are fairly loose, he’s not gripping the pencil, it is almost

an extension of his arm?, note, I said arm!, not wrist, especially when

most artist begin a drawing.  Like this Artist, use a dark pencil even

Charcoal.  Press lightly, and you can easily lift (erase) places that

over lap or are to dark.

Check out the way all these artist start.  Pretty messy I say.  What

you will come to realize later is even with Oil paint‘s the beginning is

spasmodic, a vary rough laying on of tone.  Like, grab a H pencil draw

an oval,  lay your pencil almost flat…

LEARN TO DRAW WITH VIDEOS

Posted in ADDS on October 19, 2011 by trancemorrow

 

Looking at this video will discourage you, without first reading this. 

When you first start to draw,  it won’t t be anything like this.So,

just look and take it in, see the way he holds the pencil.  Notice his

pencil strokes are fairly loose, he’s not gripping the pencil, it is almost

an extension of his arm?, note, I said arm!, not wrist, especially when

most artist begin a drawing.  Like this Artist, use a dark pencil even

Charcoal.  Press lightly, and you can easily lift (erase) places that

over lap or are to dark.

Check out the way all these artist start.  Pretty messy I say.  What

you will come to realize later is even with Oil paint‘s the beginning is

spasmodic, a vary rough laying on of tone.  Like, grab a H pencil draw

an oval,  lay your pencil almost flat and lightly fill in the oval, then

rub it all around with a Tissue rapped around your Index finger.

Buy a Putty rubber, and fool around lifting off the Graphite with it.

This Video of David Kassan drawing an eye isn’t with straight pencil

as you can see.  But it’s worth watching because the result is the

same.  Only the Medium is a little different.  Rubbing smudging is

all part of drawing.  In fact thats the fun part.  That white tipped

pencil he uses a lot is in fact a rubber. You’ll see David brush away

the Rat’s tails, during this demo.  (rat’s tails are the curly bits of

rubber left)

Throw out all of your old school Idea’s, tracing is aloud use a

ruler, smudge and rub, put your photo right next to your

drawing.  A modern master once said, “Draw what you see

then draw what you know”.  Meaning in a photo the eyelid

might be hidden so draw one in if you think it will make your

drawing more realistic.

Note his Paper is gray, thats what a lot of artists start with, It was

white but he rubbed graphite into the paper before drawing. 

Lightly covering his paper so it is easy to rub out highlights. 

Thats how you get that shine on the nose.  and in the corner

of the eyes, and the little white dot in the eyeball.  You also

dab with a putty rubber, to get highlights in the cheeks and

chin.  Slightly rub with a Tissue to dull the cheeks, giving that

soft skin look.

In his hand, is a Putty rubber.  A Charcoal stick, their as cheap as.

No Tissue, just his finger and thumb.  Try this at home with some

real cheap drawing pads.  Butcher’s paper is worth getting if you

know were.  Don’t be scared to fool around, and crunch it up

if you don’t like it, and start again. 

Now the other end of the spectrum.  This Fellow is drawing

in the pure sense of the word, he’s line drawing with crosshatching

and vary little smudging.  He finishes up with a vary pretty

drawing, looking more like the photograph then the one he

copied from.  Still a vary good style, but limited in as much

as it would be nearly impossible to draw from real life.

There’s some extremely important points here, come back to

this Video, from time to time, to take it all in.  The circular

lines really show were the 3D aspect comes into drawing and

understanding the human body is as important as learning

tonal values.  With out some knowledge of Anatomy you

will struggle with drawing people clothed or unclothed.

As per usual, I have picked another artist who smudges finger rubs

and generally makes a mess to start with.  Then as if by magic the

portrait comes together, everybody is different in their

execution of the process of drawing.  But the main goal in their

drawing is to end up with a likeness of the person they are

portraying on paper.  Some people call this process blocking

in sections,  and then highlighting the details.  

He Picked up a Bum off the street, invited him to his studio.

What you see is David Kassan drawing with a plastic knife.

He’s using pure Graphite which you can buy in art shops.

Not sure about the board he’s drawing on, looks washed with

brown paint.  He highlights the drawing with white charcoal.

As the camera zooms in becomes a double screen, with the

model and the drawing side by side you can see how good

David Kassan really is.  I’ve watched this one many times

to learn as much as I can, because of the closeness of the

Camera to the Artist working.

Getting away from drawing for a minute.  This Video shows

how close drawing is to painting.  especially if you follow

the previous videos,  theres a theme running through

them.  The blocking in,  rough beginning,  laying down

of graphite,  and in this Video the laying down of paint.

In other words stay away from pure line drawing,  it will

stop you from learning about tone,  depth,  highlighting.

Back to drawing?.  He is right when he says that a blending stump

(tortillian) leaves a kind of silver gray, were as a wide paint brush

is softer and less permanent.  For me, I use a soft Tissue,  try to get

ones that don’t have Fragrant added,  because that can leave traces

of oil on your Drawing.  The more expensive the Tissue, the better

compound for spreading graphite without poking your finger

through and messing your drawing with greasy fingers.

Decidedly different form of drawing,  again line drawing,  with an

added difference he traced the cat onto his paper first?.  No law

against that.  But what I want you to observe is Cat hair,  like all

hair,  is a series of upside down V’s.  grass to is a lot of right side

up V’s.  Long hair is the same, all strands of hair end up in joining

other strands, meeting in a V.  Darker strands underneath,  lighter

on top,  creates 3D affect.

Carrying on the theme from the last Video.  Animal hair,  in these

photos of Cat drawings,  look for the upside down V’s,  you can’t

miss em.  the Big Cats whiskers are a case in point,  the V’s stand

out there.  cast your eyes on the real fine fur, and again those V’s

are there to.  Now Eyes are a u’ll see trees bushes and people. 

Little people, and clouds.  With a spot of light because an eye is

a dome, andreflects light, as well as whatever is in front of the

animal, or person.
