Copy drawing is helpful for beginners. Allows single style and drawing techniques without having to worry about the issue directly. The accuracy of eye measurement comes with copying.
Copying also provides eye training by allowing the person to correct errors in length measurements.
The second type of drawing, idea or drawing of an object, provides knowledge of form and structure. Relationships and related sizes of objects with each other learn by drawing.
Here are three types of drawing support and help:
– Copy shows how.
– In drawing an object how one sees.
– With imaginary drawing one thinks how.
Eye measurements Practice eye measurements with this simple app:
– Draw a line 4 inches long and divide it in half, just by looking at it with one eye.
– Draw another line and divide it into three parts.
– Do it again, divide the row into fourth.
– Repeat the activity with lines of different lengths.]
To measure your progress, measure the length of each phase after each eye. Are you close to half, or three? Practice and practice.
Measurement Accurate eye measurement is required to draw the figures in the correct proportions. When the head is drawn twice the length of what it should have been, the whole figure looks uneven because the head looks natural.
Body sizes should be measured, and made to size according to their size. This requires familiarity, close observation, and the ability to measure.
An effective exercise for learning to draw balance is to use something common as a standard measure and draw it carefully. Then place some objects next to it and draw them. Use simple objects of different types and sizes.
For more advanced exercise put two objects of different sizes together, like a cardboard box with an apple on top. Draw them evenly, or practice drawing them until you can. Then, from memory, add a third element to this space, drawing it in proportion to the two existing objects.
Do this exercise over and over again with the same two first items (box and apple) but add three different items from memory.
How to Measure Hold a pencil and raise your arm away from you. Mark the length, width or height of the object with your thumb with a pencil. Transfer this measurement to a diagram and use it as a standard measure for others to measure.
For example, when drawing a house, hold a pencil and draw a line at the end of one corner of the house. Put your thumb in the pencil where it is on the other side of the house. Transfer this to paper and use this measure, the width of the house, as a measure to make other related measurements.
Drawing Scale One of the biggest mistakes beginners make is drawing on a very small scale. In copying images from magazines and books, they simply copy them naturally, just like that size. The beginner usually does not know that the first drawing on which the image was made was almost too large.
Exchanging the scale of the diagrams is a good practice of keeping the skills of measurement and scale up. Repeat the same drawing with a different size for a simple exercise.
Drawing on models Use the simple objects you find around you as models. Draw them together at the beginning and as you gather them together. Use objects with a dark spot. These have simple areas of light and dark shade in their areas. Glossy objects reflect light and cast complex shadows.
One-color models are the best in the beginning. The eye will be focused on form, not color.
Put your model items in different situations. It is difficult to see the form if there is no difference. If something is black, put it on the white background. If it is white, place a black background behind it.
Light And Shade Start practicing drawing shadows and light using simple objects such as models. These should be simple structures with very little detail, such as a ball or a brick.
Place the object on white paper and place the light directly from just one source. This will give dignity from only one source. Get into the habit of drawing a lot of things like this, on your own, before drawing complex scenes.
