Quite a while ago, I wanted to review my knowledge and I decided to go into a small illustration. In the end this is one of my greatest illustrations in size and in preparation). But first things first ….
There’s some time, I received an email asking me if I knew how to draw the characters. I confess that I didn”t understand that person wanted. So I tried to get you an answer and in the meantime, I had fun creating a ‘character’ …..
how to give volume to a shape or a character ?
It’s projected light onto the form which will give its relief. It’s a play of shadow and light. For a cube or another flat forms, it’s rather easy but how to to do for the round or oval forms ?
If I learn the drawing, it’s not to realize an attractive nude or a lifelike portrait. It’s also and especially to get to draw whatever comes into my head.
Today, I show you a sketch realized freehand and without setting of mark before beginning the drawing. I followed the way of proceeding learnt during the course of online drawing on which I am now registered: DTO.
I continue my learning of the drawing with DTO and I just learned that it is useful to draw a line of separation between shadow and light on its drawing. Given that I am French, and Given that I understands very badly the American, I don’t know if I understood everything. But here is my experience.
I made a new sketch – exercise for the drawing class DTO. The purpose of this exercise is to have a just line. We must draw a female bust freehand (without grid). It’s a hard work for me because I usually have to press hard with my pencil. Then, it is difficult to erase if it does not go. Therefore I prepare before I start.
