About This Class


Welcome to The Artmother's Drawing Masterclass!

Drawing is a skill anyone can learn! It is the most important building block of all art - illustration, graphic design, fine art and even animation starts with sketches and drawings! If you are the person who always though he can't learn drawing, even if you are already into some medium, like watercolors, you are in the right place!

As a professional art teacher with a Master's Degree in Art Education, in the last 10 years I watched people form all age categories learn drawing. In the last year I was researching the perfect methodology to teach a very beginner art fundamentals and I combined all these experiences and also the feedback from my first drawing course to create a comprehensive Masterclass.

It has 3 levels: The Beginner Levels Skills, The Intermediate Level Skills and The Advanced Level Skills.


In "The Beginner Level Skills" our focus is to explore your inner symbol set, roots of your style, your relationship to drawing and the ways you LOVE to draw, styles that you are most into and try to get the most out of it! We will start with as simple things as drawing lines and build it up to creating shapes and forms.

In this class you will learn:

- to draw lines with different properties, rhythm and weight

- to hold the pencil in a stable and comfortable way

- to create an artwork entirely from lines

- to draw basic geometric shapes in order to build up more complex shapes

- to create forms from shapes (sphere, cone, cube)

- to apply values

- to shade with the "Reverse Shading Method"

- to create the illusion of space in your artworks by applying linear perspective

- to draw the different parts of the face

- to draw basic facial proportions 

- to let out your personal symbol set and explore how you like to draw

- to draw with confidence

- different areas of some visual industries where you can apply your beginner level skills 

The point of this level is to prepare you for the intermediate level skills, to give you a push to draw regularly and believe in yourself and your art!

The class is ideal for very beginners, with zero experience with drawing. If you are the person whose automatic reply to the question "Can you draw xzy?" is an automatic NO (even when playing Activity), YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE:)

Even if you are already painting with different kinds of mediums, like watercolors, acrylics of digital, but you are questioning whether you need to learn drawing in order to do your craft, THIS MIGHT BE THE COURSE FOR YOU!

If you are ready to learn what you always wished for but never had courage or procrastinated over it, this is the time to ENROLL!

See you inside!

1. Introduction: Hi, my name is and I'm a professional art teacher with a master's degree in art education. In the last 10 years, I watched people from all age categories to learn to drove and also pain, too. We'd all different kinds off mediums. And in the last year I spent my time researching the perfect methodology to teach very beginners art fundamentals. Through my teaching experience, I noticed that people have such a low self esteem did they are not using what they already know because they're intimidated by all the other things that they could. No. And they think that everything some kind off superpowers so in this course line mission is to show you that this is a lot true. You can create stunning artworks with simple lines on simple shapes on beginner shading. I already published a drumming course for Take a very beginner from a single line to an appropriately drone. Still life and I took all the feedback I got from death cores on your favorite exercises on on reviews on the Wishes on combine that with my research on created a comprehensive must. I think the secret off learning anything is building up skills slow. Be so I divided the course in tow. Free levels, the big in a rattle skills, the intermediate general skills and other skills in the beginner level skills. We are going to explore riel essentials. Dis level will take a very beginner from nothing. Something way are going. Teoh, focus on exploring skills that you already have inside You like drawing ones. You can draw lines right on. We're going to let this kills out. I will help you understand that you can do amazing artworks. Just begin a levels kills. And to understand the importance off doing art regularly on embracing what you can do and do it on. Learn, loving and respecting your art. You can think of it as a regular soul. Yoga. So the chorus is ideal for absolute beginners injury. And they aren't. And for those who might already be in painting but still think they can't Joe and ask questions from Facebook groups like Do you think I need to learn drawing if I want to learn painting? Yes. You can't escape it. It will help you understand. Hold a buildup of painting. It will help you with planning to painting. It will help you catch it at the end of this classy will be able to create a full illustration with clean Lineburg, simple shading, leaving her perspective and basic facial proportions. And you will be able to apply all this in your future Art. You've been learned that you don't need any civic office to do this. You can hold a pencil, right? So hold it on. Explored a big in a level Kill Smith me. 2. Beginner Level Guide : So the reason people focused on your inside is because your personal style or so called signature style has roots inside you. And if you learn over it or think that very you draw things or the way you love to draw things is wrong, Um, then you will have a hard time. Express yourself the things like, for example, three point perspective, because you will know how to draw a building with a three point perspective. But will that be you? Will you have your signature style in that drawing? That's the question. So in this first stage, I want you to recognize what's inside you to get comfortable with yourself on and your relationship to drawing and and then gently adjust damn to some rules. So in this course, I feel at first give you some insight to the tools you can use for throwing will start withdrawing staple lines. Do drills like this don. We will do a samples and tangle, exercise and disentangle minute project to apply or newly discovered lines, And the point of this part is that you realize that you can create amazing artwork. They just lines without any shapes initiating or any color. Dan, Have you learned how to draw shapes, purple E and that we can build up things from staple geometric shapes? And this realization will be a total game changer in your catches on. Let's stop here for a second. I am really fun off art therapy. I have studied it in beautiful ist and I wanted to implement it into this course so that you gathered inside Teoh How powerful art ISS. So we don't create a simple illustration off your house and then we will analyze it and learn some cool things about ourselves. Done. We do move to creating forms from shapes. You will learn the reverse shading method on we will shade an apple, a pear and banana if you are a painter, this exercise will help you to understand the build up off objects where to put highlights where to put shadows which you can apply in your painting as well, Dan reveal. Learn about linear perspective. Practice replacement off objects in space. Dan, we will have a coffee break where I will explain you about the symbols in your hat and lastly they will draw different parts of the face and then applied is knowledge to drove Arrendel face. Sounds like a long huh? Don't worry. These exercises I designed to be, like, 10 or 15 minutes s so that you can really get into drawing regularly. The focus off these level is to get out creativity To get over the fears of the blank page the pencil on the topics on to dismiss the thoughts like I can't draw, I can shade I little learn how to draw You already know how to do You just need to drool 3. Supplies : welcome in this video. I would love to talk to you about the supplies you are going to use in discourse. So yes, obviously will need a pencil and paper, and you can totally use them if you have any at home. But I would love to give you some recommendations which real give you a more pleasant workflow on and results. So let's talk about a paper first. Um What? I'm going to use it as from February? No, it has 80. She it's on. It has 110 uh, grounds You can sit like here, which means that it's paper as a little bit thicker. Dan, A simple office paper. Let me just show you, like here, there's a little bit thicker. And let me just show you what is the real difference. It has a little texture, and it can hold up a little bit of water so you can add some color to your illustrations and drawings. Quit wanted colors. So here's a simple office paper, and I will just show you a simple sketch weed a three B pencil off a circle will little shading. This is just a rough sketch. Okay to school. But now let's see what it does on this paper. How it works on this paper. It is so much better to work on it. It helps the graphite to enter the paper on it is it is a lot easier to create a nice a fact with the same afford from your signed. So you understand. Now, why is it good to have some quality supplies? And it is not to expensive. Just take a look on the two different papers, This texture. It's so much nicer than this one. I can't have this texture on simple office paper. So this is why would comment to goddess catch book? It is like something like $10 for eighth sheets. It is great because you have all your drama wings in one place and we in discourse. We're going to fill this sketchbook, withdraw wings. I will be a nice reference. Or you have to put this nice portfolio, or you will see your progress for of the course on it will be just a real nice evidence that you did the course Onda. Really nice memory for yourself in the future s Oh, no. What's talk pencils? My favorite brand for pencils. Excreta, color It just reasonably priced on good quality. I'm sure you already know that there are some, um, marks on the pounds ills we letters and numbers you can find age and be Age stands for heart B stands for black heart plans. Illsley Hard marks on the paper. Black pencil slaves, soft marks on the paper. I have a simple sat here from decree to color. Let me just show you a little quickly or what does it mean? Okay, so here my pencils I didn't find the five b from the Corita color, but I have a corn or ah, heart Mont Uh, pencil. So let me just talk a little bit about hardness. So after is in the mill on Let's start with the hardest pencil in the beginner level in discourse, we're going to use of black pencils because heart pants seals leave hard mark on the paper . And it is really for fine small lines so that you can really of badges of D cross hatching shading technique. Um, and it comes different. Hardness is it does not the beginner level supply. Let me just show you this is free okay, I am. Mix it up. Doesn't matter, Jack. It is an age it. As you can see, it starts to get, um, smaller and smaller. This is an HB. This is a being This isn't after. I would say the f is in the middle of this range. Um, on the B r starts with B and then there is d to be. Then there is D freebie for be. It got extremely soft. This is a five b six b seven b, and I don't have an aid be, but I have a nine b, and it is, like, totally black and soft and extreme shading, uh, tool. And here is another one. This is shaving Pantsil, uh, specifically for shading. So this is I don't even know how soft it is, but this is just the roof. Okay? So as you can see, uh, these numbers mean the hardness of the lead in the pencil. Let me just read it to you. That age stunts for hard onda be stance for black and the numbers How hard on our how black the pencil is for the big in our level, I would say as we are going to learn the basic shading techniques. I would say go for six or seven B for shading and then four lines to or freebie. Okay, for the Inter Mediate, we will introduce the cross hatching a technique. So get some hard their pencils like free or to, uh, H for lines, uh, for the cross hatching shading. But we are going to go and use this pencils as well. And India, at worst, it will be totally up to you Which passes you like. So what? I recommend this to got a pencil sat from any brand. It can be coin or it can be created color or any brand you can buy on. You will be got to go with the to be in freebie under six b seven b and get some ah, heart puzzles as well. To dry out the cross hatching shading techniques and maybe four line work you It will be more comfortable for you to use on age or hard pencil When you talk a second about what kind of pencils there are upstairs. This is on Artist of pencil sat there someone different pencils. Here, let me just see this iss sepa droving just I'll just show you what that it does. It does it really nice for still lives and shading again. This is, um, charcoal. We're not going todo with them. It is not necessary to buy a stat like this. This is, like, sanguine. Smooth. This is more more creamy. This is border sellable. This is a four B pencil then here is like journaling. Wow, this is so black. But you can see I can smudge. It is not the dust for a sketchbook again. Some? Yeah, the friend Black Smooth. Okay, this is for Langer. SEPA droving dark. And there is a white pencil for highlights. You will not see it, but it were spread well with this I was catching councils. I have another 13 to color stock. Where have ah really great pencils for shading? I am going to use these ones because I really liked him on here Some other things you could use, but we are not going to used listings for shading on. This is good to cover like big surfaces if you need to shade them and you don't want that pencil texture within it. Um but this is I think and it wants supply. We will get back to this, uh, on those shuttles. What else? Yes, we are going to use Micron pants. My campaign is really good for Lineburg. Uh, it is it. It is. Ah. Point free. There was a 0.11 point five. If you want to try them out, it is really good for cross hatching shading and to create some inky effects. I'm going to use this a lot. And there is another tool called the Blend Earth, which is I'm just going to show you This is rather foreign ones levels. But you can like Wendy graphite. It is like this much tool. Um, And for the shop or procreate, if you know those programs. So this is this much to you can do this. Create us from simple paper, so you don't really need to buy it. But it is again, Nice tour to help. You will lead. And a razor. Um, Onda sharpener. Let me just show you on day sharpener. I love to use this cups. Uh, I helped him Usually when I'm droving. Just really useful. So to sum up what you will need, you will catch book and you will need pencils. I recommend to God set of puzzles different range off off hardness on blackness and make sure you have free to be And at least a six b in your that. Then you will need on the razor My grown pan on sharp. Oh, that's all for the supplies. What? Start drawing. 4. Drawing Lines - Part 1.: welcome to this. First, a drawing exercise. This video is dedicated to droving lines. So if you don't have any experience in droving or you didn't draw for decades, this is the exercise you need to do. We are going to draw simple lines. It is not going to be demanding, but you real got control over your pencil. Uh, when we arrive at the end of this practice, what you need is the pencil that you dedicate to drawing lines. This means it's a to be or a freebie pencil if you have it. If you don't have, you can do this, exercise it. Any pounds ill you have. What I did is I prepared six squares. Not exactly squares, but that's OK, and we're going to fill them with lines in this first square. We are going to draw straight lines are notice how I'm holding my hand. I'm going to fix my rest on the desk because it will give my hand stability. I'm holding my pencil, not at the tip nor too far, but close to the tip so that I can control it. And I'm going to control the pencil from the top to bottom you're using my fingers and slightly bending my hands. So this is what I'm doing. I'm drawing a straight line. While I was drawing the straight line, I was constantly focusing on the line here, which I have drone weed a ruler. So this is the exercise where you can use a rule to create the squares, and it is a great a reference line. So the next line I'm again following the previous line. If you can see, I'm not drawing too slow because it gives instability to my, um line, but not too quickly. Because then I will just not control the line. I tried to find the middle pace Onda, find a position for your hand that is comfortable. You don't need Teoh very about the lines because this is just a practice activity. So we are just simply going to fill Ah, the square. If you noticed I flipped a pencil several times because as I'm drawing the lead is getting like, thinner and thinner on. I want to make sure that the blood is not flooded. And if I'm like sleeping my pencil constantly, it assures that I'm, uh, drawing with another side. Um and it will help my pencil to stay in a good shape for a longer time. If you don't flip it. Oh, your pencil will get, like flat of one side on your Lang will be nice. This is a good exercise to do. Even if you have experience and dropping because you can see I just got my lines better until the end off it. It is a good warm up before you start to peace in this next, uh ah, square, Let's draw, uh, horizon all lines. And if you see, I'm starting at the side holding my pencil. I'm not going to draw like this because it is unstable for my hand If comes with experience and it has not sure that desk position will be good for you. But this what is? What works for me. So I hold again my pencil like this, giving it a bit stability with my fingers below it. I'm fixing my wrist again, and I'm going to move my wrist around like this. Andi. Yes, I have a curve there, but doesn't really matter. Trying Teoh again. Get your lines as straight as possible. Flipped a pencil on draw. Vertical wise this exercise is good so that you get comfortable with different angles and, you know, ah, which hand position will give you stability while you are drawing So you can, like, experiment with the position off your end as well? Just draw with light. Oh, that's a good. So make us a fun exercise. This is absolutely not serious. Like, you see, if I mount moved my when I moved my breath like this My I cannot control the line that much . I need stable point for my hand. My hand is constantly on the dusk. Um, and my wrist as well. Great. Now we have a vertical on horizon low lines. Um, let's move into the 3rd 1 we are going to draw and the young a little lines So this is a different position again, but we are going to play with pressure. Oh, let's do it like this. Let's make 1234 lines with normal pressure on. Then press heart one Teoh three four. And now again, uh, don't press it too much. One Teoh free. For and again, I'm starting at the top to the bottom. It is more comfortable for me, but I can vary. So now I'm going to start at the bun when to free for again. I'm pressing harder. Flee, Pierpont still don't forget it. Oh, yes. I got a bid in for instability because my hand got off the table. I mean, the scotch big, but doesn't one to free for and no press harder. One to free for I have. So baby line. Okay, this is because of my instability, so I just find an angle that is as more stable. Don't the ranch. Okay, great. So now we exercised, like, variation within your pencil, you can have thicker lines. If your press harder, you can have smaller lines or thinner alliance. If you platt press a less, there is a rhythm and yes, lie in Wait. Uh, okay. My pencil go dull, so I'm going to, uh, sharpen it. 5. Drawing Lines - Part 2.: great. Now we're going to dio different kinds off lines. What they thought off is creating a baby lines and we are going to, uh, practised curves from different angles. So in this 1st 1 just simply draw. Ah, simple wavy line. Onda full this reference line with your 2nd 1 You complain a pressure again. Groups. Okay, uh, in this fifth, we are going to do the same, but with the back lines and we're going to try to change the position off her hands for 20 . So let's got comfortable with that. See, I'm doing this line. My pencil is fixed here, and I'm doing this line. My pencil is fixed here. Just see this position off my hand. You can do it like this is well, that you have constantly fixed on one place. But this is like more funds on DA the more of a pencil control exercise. So try to play with does angles as well. What feels comfortable for you? Dust is on exploration. Drawing and doing art is exploring what is good for you. Have you like to express yourself? Um, it is just such a great thing. I'll let's move on the last one where we are going to create curves like this and again changing the position off for pencil a lot. Okay, so I'm going to do curves like this. You can still Ah, very with pressure. So just exercise that when that thing let's say we're going to do two ropes off days herbs , and then let's do it on the other side. So this is already a pattern design surface pattern design, but anyways, just so great to practice this kind of things because you don't really realize that. And maybe it is. It works for one person on. And it might work for you as well. Like these changing off the pencil position on things like that. Like or wearing the pressure control. Maybe you have never thought about that. Maybe your hand will get tired by Does lots ofa drawing done? Just get a rest. We'll drink some tea, coffee or something. Okay, great. I like that one. That would look good on a kid clothing or something. Okay, so we are at the end of this droving glands practice exercise. I hope you enjoyed it on that. Your hand is not to tire it. You can just do some exercises but data so well. It is so good. So we practiced to use a reference lines Teoh draw from the top to the bottom to draw straight lines, find the perfect paste or not too slow, too fast. We changed a position off her hands. We played with diagonal lines on the rhythm and pressure, and we learned a lot passing control, my droving, this curvy lines. We played again with changing the position of the pencil and be exercised joing curves. So I think this is an extensive exercise. You can now go do something girls, because you will get burned out after deals. Lots of flames. Onda, who wanted the next exercise in the next video. 6. Zentangle Exercise: Okay, so let's just move on to the next exercise. We are going to still deal with lines. Uh, I'm just going to show you what the tangle is. This is a really great practice to warm up to get comfortable with. This pays because mostly beginners tend to draw on. Many kids off course, tend to draw to some place is focusing on one places on the paper. So let's say if I would ask you to draw your family, maybe you would like joy that starts to draw it. Like here. You will have your drawing here, and you will have an empty space around the paper. So's entangle exercise. It is cold like this helps you to explore the space and then not be, ah, afraid off the paper because we are going to like a drove around it. Um, yeah. So, uh, we're going to draw one really long line. I ask, you know, to pick up your pencil from the paper, just just draw. So mostly we're going to draw, uh, different curves around the paper, so I just start somewhere, OK, you can play with pressure against the portion. Take it on. Poor sh you can cross this line. Just make sure you were not making too. Ah, small shapes and let's say connected. And now we have all different kinds of shapes around. This is on exercise, really based on accidents. So there isn't isn't a good way to do this. And there isn't a bad thing to do this. Um, we're going to fill these shapes with aligns created in the previous exercise. This is kind of meditative in the coffee break we're going to have in this class, I will explain youth. Ah, what benefits doing art halves? Um, I'm not going to details right now, but it helps you distain the present in this world we have now that everyone is constantly running on looking in the mobile phones and constantly digesting and receiving information . Ah, we're constantly not here on. Uh I don't know how you are with this, but my brain starts to hurt other, um, sometime. And I really need to relax on this exercise is really great for relics ation. You can do this in, like comes indefinite shapes. I mean, like, for example, you draw shape off a cat had a new drone. These lines within that shape off a cat hat. And now you have a Santa Zan tangle cat had, if that makes sense, but they're just the way to make it a bit, um, more fun, because this is supposed to be a fun. So this is I don't know. I'm going to This is similar to doodling when you are like drawing shapes. Actually, I am joking shapes right now, but we are not yet in the shapes. So, like, I don't want you to draw triangles and circles. Of course you can, because during artists free and if you want, you can just feel shape it circles. I will do that because why not like, um, play around? But I would love to focus in one smores. I will feel every shape with some lines. Yeah, Okay. Great. Uh, what is fun with this exercise is that you can find different objects within your artwork, I guess. Yes. One. Oh, are What is it? It can be, um, duck or something like that. Uh, this exercise is really great, aiming for kids, but for beginners as well. You can level this up to create some really nice outweighs, but this has again adjusted practice. So let's just wanted an access this size 7. Zentangle Mini Project: Okay, So what I thought off is to create a entangle newly project. Eso would just create a first real artwork using which already know. So what do we know is how to joke one. Uh, Teoh explored the space to feel shapes with your lines on. Let's say this wasn't an introductory exercise on this mini project we're going to do on the next page is like optional. Okay, let me just short Pinterest. Ah, what thinks we can do with Zen tango? Aziz, you can see they're wonderful artworks created with this method. And they're simply just ah, simple shapes of filled with different patterns. Why don't we do it, Teoh draw? Um, Feder because I think it doesn't easy one. Andi, feel those shapes with some patterns decorated by lines, so that's what we are going to do. So what I'm going to do now is to go through this images find five patterns, would lines that I like and Phil defender with I don't want it to be too big because it is a really detailed berg. I will create like a simple rectangle for this Jack, I'm going to Swatch. I will just draw off five little watches because we can call this watching. This is going to be a great project for the introduction off the shapes. Because that's our next topic in the scores. Okay. And at first I'm going to fill this. What does, uh, buttons. So or Feder is going to have us 10 as it if it waas a leaf. So draw a line like this on another one. So it is a shape on Duh. Uh, create something like this. Andan another one. As if it was, like, really leaf. It has, like, pointing inches. - Okay , It looks silly. Would like ah, leaf redder. But we will add some things like this spirals to make a look a bit more factory. You can do the soul with your pens ill. Okay, Not the parent. Most perfect. But that will be all right. And now you'll take my microphone pen and apply these. It is a total of free. So? So you can totally varied these patterns. This is just like trying out some swatches and for you to see that it convert like this. Well, I will start with day top shape and let's say I will make it full off simple lines like you can apply. Idolized. We did two previous project as well. Great. Ah, what is good about my compounds that you can erase? Ah, your lines with a pencil afterwards and it will not be seeing it is so great. I'm just going to create a stem. Like, uh, I will feel it with simple vertical lines that are close to each other so that it is dark. You can see we can worry. Ah, the effect of darkness and lightness with, uh, regularity off or lines as well. This is what gross hatching shading is based on. Uh, it is This is a good or sick exercise, actually, for that as well. Actually, any practice activity you do is good because, uh, you will just get better in battering it. You know, doing art is a journey. Lifelong journey does similar to yoga. I think if you start yoga like seriously, not just inside. Ah, action for the side action. You will be like addicted. Teoh. Okay, this is this thumb. I will just start here, so I will have free simple wines on bond. Um, darker line. I'm free single lines in a thick our line to show you what I'm doing. You can just check out painters there. So many ideas for it is, uh but they all different patterns. You know what my tip here is to Jews? One pattern and apply it randomly rather than following. Because when you're drawing one pattern, you would get comfortable with it, drawing it on it will be like easier to apply it. Your work will be quicker and less demanding. So you don't need to think about what should I draw here? Where should I draw it? You are like filling entous spaces. This is why isn't Tunggal is so great. I'm going to speed up some of these parts so that this video is not too long on boring because what I'm going to do is just fill these shapes with this patterns made off lines and create a nice design which could look bready well as tattoo mostly. Okay, Amazing. So what do you think? I think it doesn't amazing technique to practice allies ridden. Some variation would end aligns to practice the angles, how you hold a pencil. Um, and you can create amazing got tricks by taking a complex thing, breaking it down into simple shapes on filling them with just patterns on. You can bring this to a whole new leather level off design if you go for data, but that is not or point in this course, so we're going to move on. Onda. We already created some shapes within this artwork on or focus will be fapiis in the next videos. 8. Drawing Shapes : in the second part way are going. Teoh deal with drawing shapes. What does drawing shapes mean? What are shapes? Shapes are, ah, created by lines. So if so, if we close a line, we have a shape. Now we have organic shapes like Islam on we have. Do your math, Rick shapes. Right. So we have the triangle. Do you rectangle circle, etcetera, droving. Simple shapes are like the most essential building blocks off. Drawing anything when we're going to draw. For example, a pair. We are going to start withdrawing two circles on connecting them. And now we have a pair. Uh, every complex of form, uh, or object or anything you can think off is filled up off shapes and we will need geometric shapes to be more precise when we are deciding how to draw on object. So, indie example of the pair Ah, we need to know how to draw two circles s so that we can get the outlines and contour lines off the subject. Right? Knowing the geometric shapes let me just draw them here is important. Ah, when we are measuring proportions, we are doing perspective, drawing when we are entering the dimensions, etcetera. So you might have noticed that artists are not drawing shapes with single lines cannot be precise and drawing with one line. As we are looking for shapes off objects, we need to be careful how we draw shapes. So let's see, we are not going to draw a square like death. But as we did with build lines, we try to draw these shapes short controlled lines. You can get them more precise if you play with the angles off your hand and depends still on. Use short lines to get those shapes. Great or appropriate. Let's see the triangle. We are not going to door triangle like this, but we have an angle of line. Arise a little line. We have an angled line again. It does not wrong if you redrow something several times to get it right, Like me having a razor right? Uh, you can see that most of the artists start drawing the shapes really light lines on and short lines. And when they find the right directions, angles, etcetera, they are making this lines darker. Let's say the circle, so I'm not going to draw the circle like this, but try Teoh, find the perfect angle off it. You see, this is with, ah, light lines, and now I'm going to darken it to get it more priest size. So now your task is to try deaths. Access that is so draw. Uh um rectangle triangle on a circle and try to get down right by positioning the pencil. Two different angles droving thin lines than darkening. It's if you got when you got the shapes, right, let's move on to the next video after you're done with this exercise to see what we can build from this shapes. 9. Simple Shapes in Practice: I'm just going to show you something. This is a not look I've done lately. This is down with water colors. It is amazing, right? It looks really, really great. I just do this off the wall. How have I done this? Does it require complex drawing abilities? These are just sample shapes and you can see them. So dare is a novel. There is a circle are there is a novel again. And now I'm realizing it could have painted Does better, but doesn't really matter. These are lies. These are symbolized for decoration. This is one point perspective we are going to learn about. This is a hidden city and this whole on the city's buildup off simple or rectangles on on triangles and simple curves like Does that we already dead on you can create things like death and even butter things just with lines and color. This is a drawing course, So we are not going to implement a color theory and stuff like that. I have courses on data as well. If you want to check out my watercolor painting courses, let's focus on using these shapes to build something on your dusk in this part is to draw your house. This might sell fun I'm going to do is a different sheet of paper. Um but what is the house? And you don't need to go like into the space. So we are not going to draw like God in Dimension as you're so still. Ization is totally okay if you want to create art. So like something simple and we're going to have an interesting discussion after once you're down with it. I have studied art therapy and I'm just going to share you some secrets. What? You're drove One doesn't mean you don't need to take this seriously, but this, like, simply just interesting. So go back to your primary schools, Drawing abilities. If you're more it once you can drone war it waas. But this is not the point. Bendis exercise. But you can build up things with simple geometric shapes. You can go wild. Is it? Would it? You can be really creative. I usually draw house with offense. I will do my really droving gonna let just showing you what you can dio I love to draw so, uh, trees you can do bushes, etcetera. My point is now to build up a stylized drawing from geometric shapes on This is going to be your your exercise. Now, let's meet in the next video over. I'm going, Teoh, analyze my own drawing. Okay, so I'm done with this catch, and I can't resist to add some color. So what I'm going to use is a watercolor pencil and brush called Wanna wanna brush, which is just great, because this'll papers are fake, but not as thick as a watercolor paper. So if I want to add a color way, don't wanna call pencil, and I just want a little bit of water. So not over west. My my paper, I can just with it one, etcetera. So what I'm going to do is right now to enjoy this catch a little bit and fill it with color. 10. Art Therapy Fun: OK, in this video, we're going to have a little art therapy fund. We're not going to be too serious about it, all right? It is just a little insight. Why? Drawing and expressing yourself is important on the journey of doing arty. We'll learn a lot about yourself. So by now, you already know you can build simply illustrations from on ley lines on your task. Wants to draw a house. I had a little found with this one on. This is no my best work at all. But it was relaxing. And actually, I learned a lot about my state of mind. Um, yeah. So my stand of mine. So there is a psycho analytic test called House Three person. You can go. Go it where you need to draw a house, a tree on the person. I don't ask you for the last two. Just the house and the tree as option as optional, because I really don't want to go deep into psychoanalyst Sis. Um, this is just a rough idea how? Desk work. So the house rip residents your home. I want to emphasize that the analysts, this clearest objectives, So if you don't identify yourself. It's something it might apply to you. Okay, so the house should be drone at normal size. If it is too small, you might have little family life. Might feel this connected to it, or you are fire away from it. If there's two big, your family might overwhelm you. The walls off the house were present boundaries and strength off the ego. So too harsh answer sized lines. Bricks might mean a really strong ego. Doors and windows were present. The relation off the person with the outside world, even path place means accessibility. They are always to enter the house, so they relate to openness, willingness to interact with others. Think about them as windows to the soul or doors to the mind. Open the windows might mean the desire to connect with people. Curtin's might mean that the unwillingness to reveal much about the self the roof eyes, the intellectual side of a person it is associated with fund is is well. Every detail and addition to the house means care so that you care for your imagination, creativity and fantasy world or dreams. If you don't have too many details, you might not care about that too much. As you can see, I have lots of details. I even have a chimney. Um and yes, fantasy world. My dreams are really important to me. Actually, this is on a hobbit house. I plan to have a house with the green rooftop eso um, for example, if you have a chimney, it represents the coziness off the family. Life may live. There was smoke. It means that the fireplace his own. If it is not on eso, there is no smoke. It could mean that there isn't chosen. Is going going at home? Uh, you know, all these things can change by time and life phases even in some parts of the week. The missing smoke can mean it is a work week. So the family isn't are chilling out at home on those days. Ah, way vehicles could be signs of wisdom is coming or people leaving the home. I don't have any offense can mean defending family life keeping it together. Aziz, you can see my fence isn't in front of the door. So my door is open. No to everyone. Uh, but I don't keep everyone outside so you can come in. But you can see I have a fun. So I defend, um, my ego, because the tree is an ego as well. We will get to that in a second. So the chunk off the trees seen to re present the eagles or the trunk itself? Um, if the sense off the self So if it is small, you might be a little confident about yourself. If it is too big, your ego might be too big, I think because I have defense, I'm defending myself. Ah, lot. And that is actually really true. Um, okay, so the branches are the affords to reach out. If you have leaves, they might mean that affords to reach out are successful if the leaves are detached from the branches, which mine are not. I'm not sure if those leaves are on the branches or like a little bit like transparent. So it might mean that the nurturing Greek that is not really predictable roots are what connects the tree and people to the ground or reality. No roots may mean and security and no feeling of being grounded on did it is true again for me. I don't really have roots. And sometimes I live just in my bubble defending myself and being unrealistic. Okay, So what do you say? Did you learn something about yourself? Today? You can go. Go somewhere. Interpretations. I don't have any persons on my picture. You might have some eso just Google. Some other like analyst is all those things and you won't learn a lot about yourself. And it just just start an interesting thing, that with a simple drumming like this, how much you say about yourself. I'm always amazed about art on on its power. So remember, you will all know what relates to you on. Don't overthink does this just needs to stay fun. Okay, so we arrived to the most basic skills. So we know no have to draw lines. We know how to drove shapes. We know how to build up a image from simple lines and shapes. We know that drawing and doing art is like an exercise to the soul. So now let's move on. Let's create forms from our shapes 11. Shapes to Forms: in this video, I'm going to explain what is value on what our force. So I just start with what is a form. So now we know that we have lines, right? And then we have shapes. And then we have forms, forms have dimensions and how we make forms. Ah, we make forms which shading. I'm going to add a little shading onto this circle on Create a sphere from it. Okay, so this is a line. This is a shape. This is a form. Um And now let's introduce the Vered value. Well, you is the intensity off color, Let's say but as we don't have coloring graphite, we are talking about grayscale, which is the intensity off off, uh, light. Let's say in beginner shading, we are going to talk about free while use or tones weaker. We can count free while use, so we have a highlight. Then we have a mid tone, and then we have the shadow. Now what I mean by D's highlight is the lightest part in I form. So that's where Delight hits the subject, and that is the highlight, as Ah, dropping with pencils is kind of transparent. So we're working with transparency on we are not really, like drawing white. We need to keep ah, the white of the paper as white off the highlight Similarly, as we want colors. So we will believe the highlight. White Andi, My shading method for a beginner level is called re worst shading method. This means that, uh, I start with the darkest part so that I know how dark can I drove within my pencil? Because, as you're so at the beginning, um, not every council is the sanely dark. Okay, we are using for shading the six or seven b pencils, but you can shade actually the to your freebie, or you can shade with the heart pants There was Well, if we are talking about mainly cross hatching shading. But my point here is to find the darkest apart off the shadow on draw it like death, and then we leave the highlight on and simply go through the meter. And don't push your pencil that much on this gives us the mid range before well used. And this is what I do on Lee when I'm shading in a beginner level and are intermediate level because this is just enough. I will show you this, Uh, in a second. Um, there are two more while used. I will just draw them here. So there is the meat. Well, you between this dude is a little bit darker than this one little bit lighter in this one. Let's make it like deaths. And this is lighter in this one. Darkened in this one. Okay, okay. So in this beginner level, we are going to use only these three tones. Now, you can see that I have created shadow beneath my object, the sphere, And this is called cast shadow. And actually, usually about because chatter we have a reflection off the object. But we don't need to care about that right now. In the next video, Uh, we're going to shade, uh, and create some forms from geometric shapes. So I just get into that 12. Shading Basic Geometric Shapes: Okay, so I just make some forms on Let's start. We'd the circle okay. From Circle Evil Make a sphere How we're going to do that. So simply just trying to draw I a circle with short lines to find best shape? No. Ah, when you are drawing, the first thing you need to think off is what is your light source And where is it? We are going to have a light source here. It does. Not going to be a harsh light. So we are going to go soft with the cast shadows. Let just, uh, draw the shapes off the highlights and the shadows because this is the process I'm following when I'm shading. So as my light source is going to hit my object here, I will have a circle here as my, uh, highlight. We have the, uh, the shadow at opposite side off the, um, object on. Usually it as, like, shaped like this. It does not like a rule, but it does not like a dot, but it is bigger part. This is going to be the darkest part ofour circle. And now we're going to have a car shadow and as my light is coming from this side. We will have cost shadow like here. So please draw this right now and then change your so I don't know if you can say that I have drawn this with freebie pencil because that is what I, um uh, recommending for lines. And now get a 70 or six b pencil. It put my sixth day puns ill and, uh, let's shade and we're going to start simply with the shadow on simply, just fill it. Eight. Feeling the shape we have drone for the shadow. Okay. And now when we have it, we will feel the remaining part apart from the highlight with the mid tone. Okay. Ah, what is a trick here? That you can soften this edge and make it more smoother and actually buy this? You're creating a bit off this while use so you can soften the edge of the shadow by going over it slightly with the weedy pencil. And you can I used a razor to raise around your highlight a little bit and light in it. Done that you will have a nicer uh, I light. Not a real shape. OK, great. It looks nice. But it will be more realistic if we draw the Costello as well. And I'm just simple feeling in the shape. It can be a bit darker, right? This looks just great. Oh, let's one wonder the next one and we have a triangle and we're going to make a cylinder for meat. You find right? I'm not sure doesn't call the cylinder Bill. Let's just keep the death. I will corrected if the video editing Okay, so now we have a triangle. But if a triangle is in dimension, this part is not going to be straight. But it will have a little bit over curve, Let's say or light source is here again. So we now have a whole surface like this to be light. So I'm going to draw this as a My highlight on this is going to be the Shadow, and this is going to be the mid tone. And let's say we have cast shuttle like this So again, when I'm doing, I didn't use the free before live that any anyways semantic. So I'm simply filling in the shadow, keeping the highlights and just going with the myth, um, on suffering this edge my going over it again a little bit And I will use my razor again to go third ist part. You can even lightened the the all sign you hot. It is a usual thing, Teoh not to emphasize the Valentine's where it is hit by delight And now I am again filling into costs shadow. Wonderful. Let's move on to the cube. So if they have a return angle, we will create a form from it. I just called Cube, but here we need to change a little bit with our dropping. So no, I'm drawing a rectangle if you remember your maths class. Geometric close. I don't know how you got it in school. Um, you will need to find an angle 4 to 5 degree angle, Joe it from this free points uneven distance and connect them like this. It doesn't matter if it is not like to precise. This is just exercise. Okay, so let's say or life sources here again, Um, what this will do is that this part off my, um, cube will be in highlight. This is going to be in highlight. Andi, this is going to be a mid tone. This whole part off the cube will be in shadow. How I will fill in the mid term, like sure, this is going to be able wide art in this part actually depends on the where the light really hits the cube, but doesn't matter. Uh, I'm going to Teoh do this softening. And this bird, the cube has these edges. Okay? I don't want to gather it of them. I just want just have a little bit of gradation, uh, into darkness. Okay? And I'm going to widen this burned, okay? And it will have a cast shadow as well. Let's say like this. Great. So as you can see, we have wines. We make shapes from the lines and we make forms from the shapes with adding scheiding which has values which is highlight me tone and shadow. And with the reverse shading method we're filling in the shadow danda me Don't then try to soften Ah days well used on Dan. We are the cost shadow and we have amazing four years. Wow, this exercise was really great. Oh, let's do this, um, with a really object and livestock. Luba bit about up situation in the next video 13. Value Practice: Okay, So before we start shading, I would love to do some pencil control exercise with you. I would love to ask you, Teoh, draw a rectangle like dis and start filling in this shape really lightly, then dry. Try to push harder and harder and harder. So have a gradation. Let's do it again. So try really lightly and now dark and nerve goes dark and okay, try this way as well. So let's leave a little white space here on Just start. So notice that I'm dropping now with the side of the lead, not tape, but the side. Okay, So when we are shading, we dropped using side off the lead. Now feel the whole shape. We dislike nuts. And we're going to layer the second player here and then a terror one from the mule and then again here and always push a little harder. So we tried to build up this quotation. Let's try it again. So widely Feel the whole shape now from leaving. Got a little space push a little harder. Okay, this was nicer, right? Because more it is more consistent. So I just do that again. Same start pushing. Get harder great. Let's do a lesson like this If you can see, my lad just got flat in the side. Uh, now it is good for drawing lines because it is sharp with when you are, um, shading Keep a piece of paper to, like, dull. It's a little bit on. It will give you a nicer shadings. I'm going to live a little bit and now I'm going to again. Likely course America and darker, darker and darker. Oh, right, right now we have some exercises. Let's get into shading. 14. Drawing the Pear: The next step is Teoh. Draw the pair Apple Banana Project where we're going to Georgie's fruits and observe the shadows and the shape of the shadows and highlights to practice a little bit more. So what I've done because I went through Google and this is how I'm going to give credit to these images. This is how I found this image. Um, this is going to be the reference image I've chosen does because if you can see, uh, delight. It's coming from this site. Here was the shadow. Ah, the next one is an apple. Here it is. Where? Where is this light source coming from? White coming from or where is there light serves. It's up here, as you can see. Oh, the apple is It's highlighted up here, and everything is going into darkness. Uh, evenly. Here is a little bit of cost shadow, which means that is the big light above deaths. Uh, apple. The next one is a banana A where the light is coming from this side and it has this sharp edged and sharp shadow in it. So we are going to draw a dia's Let me just talk second about why Observations important. I will talk about deaths bit more deeply and to cover break at the end of this beginner part. You know, you know that feeling when you sit down and you want to draw on and you just draw something from your hard as I did with these forms, I've drawn these like, I don't know, 100 times. So I really know how they look like. And I wasn't doing them by observation. I was drawing them on the basis off what I know. And leveling up your joing skills is not about drawing what you know, but rather to learn to draw. How you what you see. Okay, so, yes, you need to express yourself and I learned this stuff, but you should always rely on your eye a little bit more. So if you want to draw a pair, it is totally fine to go online and check and image where the shadows or take a real pair in front of you. Andi observed d the shadows. So what I'm going to do now is the sketch out, um, the counter lines off this pair, Um, I'm not going to be too precise about it because this is just a practice activity. But I would love to start to show you that this complex organic images are built up off geometric images. We're going to learn about this a bit later. If you can see there is a circle and their resent of the circling despair. So I will draw a big circle approximately here and another circle here. And I'm going to use death these two circles as a reference when I'm sketching out despair . So I'm going to start at the top and use short lines to find the right shape. You is a big beer, Bokal. Okay, this is a bit irregular. So, like this, there is a big hill. I'm going to raise this from the inside of the pair so that it doesn't confuse you. Not perfect. Just a tip. Always. Luke, adhere paper from the front. If I have something that started, it is because I'm dropping it an angle so that you can see what I'm drawing about. Anyhow. Anyways, uh, here is this Stanmore have the gold. Here is the little somebody. Very well. Just I think this up here here is a leaf just to make it sense off being so I'm just going around, uh, checking shape off my pair. No. Perfect. But anyways, uh, we are now going to observed a shape off the shadows. This is going to be the shape of the shadow. This is or highlight and everything around this since the mid tone. So let's start at first, Tweety highlights. So I have a highlight here. I have a highlight here, and my shadow starts here because this isn't shadow as well starts here. Day, Ariza. We will be with something like this, Okay? And this is in a big shadow. Okay, so now I have my pair. I have the highlights shadow, and I'm It does. Let's see what we create for me. I'll take the the shaving pencil I'm going to do is simply go over the whole and as your second see when I'm shading, I'm not holding the pencil at the lad, but a little bit further way so that I can make like, bigger movements with a and another thing. I'm not shading with the tip off the land. I'm not shading with a tip off the lead, but as I'm bending it, I'm shaving with the side off it. - Okay , great way to shake a ser ous. Well, you might say dust as well in this league. This leaf hasn't highlighters. Well, I'm going to use that. Uh, Make sure, Teoh to sharpen your puzzle when you need it. Not only do that right now, and now let's go for the mittens on. I'm going to raise the highlights from it. This is going to be the best way. I think I know. I'm just filling in the pair. Andi, as you can see, everything is too sharp, would start with the highlights. I'm going to make it a little bit lighter here. Andi softened these. - So what do you say? Now I can see that the shape off the pair is really not the best. But anyhow, this is a pair. I'm really curious how your tuned out following this method, the please don't forget to share that widows and you can just play around you. Can you raise from this is well, good. Smoother. Okay, So once we want to the apple, just a little side note here. So there is white tonal range within the shadow and the Meetem and also texture in the bigger level shading. We don't care about them so that you can focus on observing contra lies and the basic shapes off the shadows and highlights. This will help you to build up the complex observational skill and process that you can apply later on. We will expound us process in the intermediate level. So now people call and use and enjoy your big in our levels kills. 15. Drawing the Apple: in this video, we are going to draw the apple. This is the image off the apple. We're going Teoh Joe. And so take a D liner pencil and draw a circle because there is a circle inside. Ah, this apple. So you could just draw the apple of it. The outlines. But it is good to at least a notion that there is a circle so that you get the the shape of the apple bit better. So draw a circle. So here is the apple, and I'm starting to draw its shape here, and I'm observing. Okay, so I'm taking a Cocody apple than drawing taking a look at the apple than droving. I cannot see it's ah, but in part because it's in the shadow but going to you up here. Okay, that's just fine. And now he raised the you know, no, the best, but okay. So again, I wanted to sell it. Tell you that when you are drawing, try to look at the paper from the front because you might have this started image. If you are looking at the paper from an angle, this is the reason mostly people draw on a droving table or dust or door owing paths their Solman in different ways. Let's do a little recap about the process. Video would dip air, So at first we identified the basic geometric shapes that can they found in the object and drone and placed them. Then we observed the counter lines and try to draw them with the help of the geometric shapes. Then we have looked for the shapes off the highlights. Andi Shadows. Then we added the shadows and filled in the midterms. Then maybe I just smoother and done so listed the same with the apple. So we've already found the basic geometric shape in vehicle and have drawn its counter allies. Now your task is to stop the video and find the shapes off the highlights and the shadows on your own that continue watching. Okay, So what? It's just, um, talk about what is going to be, what in this image. Okay, so, um, let's use this thing here. The cast and I was going to be really dark on this shadow is going to be a really dark Let's say this is going to be a mid tone, and this two shapes are going to be the whiten off the paper and to have a nice gradation, we will are still lightly shade this upper part. Meaning this? Well, you. So let's just get into it and take out to your finger. There's going to be a pro tip here if you don't. If you're working on a bigger piece and you don't want to smudged everything, um uh, you should take a piece off papers. This is a dropping off my daughter and cover with death something. So let's say I'm going to draw like this and I can put my 100 is, like, work like dust. I lost much. Anyways, I think this, um, apple is going to turn going to turn out pretty good in my best berg. But anyway, use this is just practice. So, yes, we have highlight up here, we have a mid tone down here. We have a shadow and a cast shadow. I'm going to spend a little bit more time on it because I'm not like to satisfy. - Okay , so I'm just going to step right here because I'm like, overworking at Spectra on This is just practice. So we step away from it. Oh, Let's continue with banana. I'm going to try to put it like somewhere like here, where there will be a simple adjust in different direction, off light. 16. Drawing the Banana: okay. It's banana time thing. This is going to be, I think, uh, easy one. Just take the liner. Had sharpened pencils and the legis outline on this banana here. I'm not going to go for a certain shape now because it just like a simple one. Anything but See that again? When I'm doing, I'm I will draw smaller banana. Okay. Not got Big a Z apple and pear waas that I'm trying to find the perfect shape for the curve by positioning my hand always differently. - Okay , Now I can see that there is this'll line inside that actually follows this line. Quiet of a Okay, uh, that was You can see. Uh, this part is actually almost in a full highlight. If I want to take a poise. Veritas, almost white. I can say it is here on dit is here and again, uh, this is going to be a little bit shaded. This is going to be, like just a little bit. This is going to be the mid tone. Here is a shadow down here. And actually, the most dark part is to cast shadow. And it has, like, something like death. So I guess the light is coming from Decide up here like the shader on Let's get into what I'm going to do is to actually start with the cast shadow. Andi have a little variation with them. The cast shadow is also it is darkest below the banana then expands and Lydon's okay? No, I'm going forward to me, Tone. It's just simply going to be darker. Lloyd are on again. What I'm doing is justly slightly shading this part. I'm going to soften the edges off this highlights so that I can't see those shape lines I used. I can go over this here. Um, maybe here about the, um, casts shadow because usually ah, the surface the object is own gives reflection back to the object. So there is usually a little bit off highlight down here, but that much Okay, so what do you say We have drone pear and apple and a banana. And let me just point you something out. Ah, this creature color pencil is a studio pencil. As you can see, there's a more professional when odd and Cohen normal one and you can see a real difference between just droving and this drawing right I struggled a little bit. Ah, here with the shading, because I couldn't control the graphite as much as I can with distant, because this has, like better lad like it's suffer under. I don't even know what's difference between them lines like Bergman's, as with water colors. But but there is a truth in having a quality. Marty. Rials make you like more quality of results and like Dad, but if you have any pencil, you can still do this. But you will maybe need more efforts to get these results. So legis. Twice We learned how to draw lines, how to use the lines to create patterns so we didn't or first drawing project. Learn todo shapes, learned to build up illustration from our shapes. Alert something about ourselves learned how to do simple shading on you know how free objects shaded. And that's this is, I think, awesome. Uh, but now let's enter the dimensions even more. We're going to learn about perspective in the next video 17. Simple Perspective: Okay, let's talk perspective. What is perspective? I'm sure there is a better definition. But in my own words, I would say that it is sizing the objects to create the illusion off the measures. When we are talking about perspective, we are talking about pace. Maybe we are talking about lens caves at said room and when we have a space, usually have a horizon line. So let me just show you this. I'm going to talk to you about linear landscapes right now. Okay, So that means that we only have a horizon Line s number in the picture. So let's say this convened a line between the sky and dill end But this can be d line off the edge off the table on this convened of all or the background behind a table I have the objects like placed on. So the things that are closer appear bigger than the things that are further away. Let me just show you dis with the camera. So this is my hand and it appears like bigger. If we just closer, then the thing meaning de pencil that is further away, right? And it just approximately the same size Let's talk about my little finger. OK, so it is approximately the same size. And when I bring it to the front, it appears bigger. Dan de Pencil. And this is the illusion off space and in drawing if we drove, let's say this is a simple landscape. I will draw a tree this big, and it is going to be like, uh, I felt as it is closer than the thing that is smaller. Okay, um, this is true. Even when we draw, like, still lives. So what's say we have a composition? We have the horizon line here on Let's say we have a jog. Not the most perfect jug. But this is justice. Catch. And when I have, let's say a, uh, pair behind it, I will need to draw this pair closer to the horizon line. Okay? And if I have something in front of this jug, let's say the grape, um, I will need to joy it further away from the horizon line. Okay. When we're going to draw and still lives in the intermediate level, we will need to take deaths in consideration. This is perspective. There are several kinds of perspectives. There is a one point perspective, which means which means that they have and when she point or, um horizon line. And that means that if I have an object, let's say a house right here and I want to place it into dimension A deer's lines we'll need at the vanishing point. So let's say I'm drawing a lock house and it is going to be staying like this. This is just the introduction to this. OK, so we are going to talk about us in the intermediate level because this is really not a beginner levels kill, but I want you to know that does access. Then there is a two point perspective and a three point perspective as well, and we are going to talk about them into inter mediate and at once level as well. So for the beginner level, just remember that in the perspective, things that are closer appear bigger than the things that are further away. And if something in the is in the front at a furniture from the horizon line, and if some things like furniture away from me, it is closer to the horizon line. Okay, so what's the point? Us in the next video very angry to simply draw a pair again, and we're going to place some grapes next to it. 18. Perspective Practice: this is going to be an up so simple thing because as we already have a pair drone, I'm not going Teoh waste another paper Fortis. I'm going to jury like here. So this is going to be my image on here is the end off the dusk for right. So now I will draw two circles for a repair. A bigger one on the smaller ones America Leela beat on D um, foul plies. You can use a reference picture for this, but now that you already drone a pair, I think this is, like, easy think to you Let's say Ah that or like, just come from the Steidl, Right? So now we have a pair on, Let's put a grape behind it. So let's drove it like here on. Let's put a great here one here and that's all. Let's shade it. So here is our highlight. We will hate. We'll have highlights on dick rapes a swell and we will have cast shadows. Now take the shader on and yes, I forget the shapes of the shadow. So we will have a shadow like here, here on Dhere. So this is what I can do with knowledge I already have. So what I will assert with as filling this shapes off the shadows, hopes on fill in the midterms and read transitional gradation How you want to co it? Okay, great. So we will go into all of this a deeper in the intermediate level. Now let's going to have a coffee break and talk about how do we see the world? 19. Coffee Break : coffee time drawing is a skilled. Everyone can learn. It's OK, but down the question arrives. If I could have learned that already, why am I drawing at a six year old? The accessories, Because you have symbols in your head that you have created for yourself. And around six years, everyone is Joey, right? It is a totally natural activity for little kids devil off their mother skills. It helps them express their emotions and experiences. I'm sure you remember when you were in primary school. You have to draw what happened to you during school locations and in the art therapy fund. We already learned the drawing has an amazing popover on therapeutic effect and that it can help process emotions on experiences. It is a great way to learn about ourselves. Now little kids make scribbles than a toddler starts to name them. And as around six or seven years, you have thinks you drove over and over again. And that's a time when you learn how to draw things and you actually develop your system off symbols. One thing is influenced. For example, I remember that day I draw a tree I saw from the sister of one of my friends. She was older and they really loved how that looked like. So I created my version off it, and I'm still drawing trees that way is also the influence off your parents. How they have shown you how to draw things. Actually, you created a set off symbols for yourself, um, as a way to express yourself on paper similar to vodka Billary. But in schools, they make you to read a lot, to listen a lot, to speak a lot to expand that Valka Billary. But they're not expanding your visual vocabulary. If that makes sense, why are symbols basically stay a Z They are if they're not nurtured or expended on devil oped. So let's say I tell you to drove hatch home right now. What would you draw? A stylized Virdon off course. But it will have some characteristics you have in your head about it. It has a pointy nose. It has prickles. It has our eyes. It has lack. So you would draw something that has these characteristics but doesn't have a tail or years . If you had a chance to observe a hatch, fall on, redraw it several times you would create an amazing dropping off it right now. That would be your developed single or over Britain symbol. But in school, in art lessons, you usually created decorative work and, uh, craft. That's fine, but I didn't double a this visual vocabulary that day. Shooting later in the early teenage years, there's a breaking point when a kid decides if he is going to draw in the future or not, mostly talented or nurtured, kids will remain at D art or just Sphere. So one thing is that if I ask you to draw a something right now, um, you would draw its single right. But Dad is what you know about that subject. If you always roll what you know, you are not developing this symbols. You are not over writing it. Okay, so in order to develop your visual walking Hillary, you need to observe that is, and not a skill you need to learn. With observation. You can draw what you see and remember the characteristics off a certain object and overwrite your symbol in your habitat in the next section. We are going to draw around, um, face, I going to explain you the different parts of the face. What to pay attention at so that you can remember them later when we are going to observe somebody's face in the next level on, you will already know these things, and you will automatically draw them like death. And you will have energy to focus on capturing and other features of the face rather than getting the proportions right. So practice makes the monster right exercises we did until now, mostly to build up the understanding how all these Berks and in the beginner level I think it is just enough. Teoh, draw things a little observation on and explore what you know about the things on. Just learn some rules that you apply into that on. You are building up your droving on. Then observational kills to mastery. The intermediate travel will focus on developing your observational skill. I would say it has a similar skill to learning a point. It iss the skill off learning the characteristics off subject. So in the next videos, we're going to draw a random face. I learned some rules off facial proportions that's getting to it 20. Drawing the Eye: okay in this, a few with us. We're going to draw different parts of the face like the I d nose the mouth. Onda, Uh, we are not going to observe any one's real face. I It is a good idea to take a mirror on, like, take a look around your face, but we're going to just Onley point out Friel things that you should keep in mind before we start to observe somebody's like, real face on, Then copy their gestures and characteristics. So I will ask you to draw, um, you're symbols. So at first, let's talk about the I, and I would love to ask you to draw the symbol of the eye. Are you having your head? So sandwiches draw, and I that you can right now. I guess it will look like something like this are At least my husband draws it like this, and I wanted to show you an example, and this is kind of like the Mexican in the boat, which is our inner a jacket home. But let's now for me to draw a random I. So, first of all, what shape does and I have on it has a shape off a plum seed. So it has a curve like death. Then we have a tear duct right here on. And we have E go right here. When I want to point out on, you can just take a look at the mirror to see your I, um This part off the island can be seen, so you should have, like, two lines down here. Okay? I usually you don't see the upper island eight. Okay. As we have an eyeball, it is a circle. Okay. Said you should have a, uh, really likely draw a circle around this, uh, shape from this part to this part, which means that this is your eyeball. Okay, But we don't see the whole fit this line. This is smaller, but okay, this line is going to notion the upper island that you have, and this should be the lower island you have. Usually you see these lines. Um, and we are just going to notion them. Okay, we're really going to use them. They are really important when we're going to shakthi the I. Okay, let's talk about this line is like that, okay? And this follows just thing here. Okay? Let's talk about the iris. So if the person is in a front of you and is in totally normal position, the Irish touches the lower eyelid and is covered up by the upper island a little bit. So what? I mean that you I cannot see the iris full Iris always okay. On Lee, the person is, like, really surprised or something, and has a really wide open eyes. But usually the irises like touching they over island and discovered up by the upper right . I think this is too, too high. This current for doesn't matter. Okay, so it is a bit As you can see, this could would be full circle, but there isn't a full circle The shape of the various. Okay, um, we didn't the the ethnicity the age D uh, the move, the emotional Saira, We're going to explore them in the intermediate level where we are going, Teoh draw eyes from different point of views on. Then we are going to explore age on. Dad, Miss, It is well, but right now this is just around the my Okay. Ah, what about the pupil? The pupil is simply a circle inside the iris and it Is it the perfect center off it? Okay, so try to draw this smaller circle in today and signed off. I know. A nice I want to say it is big progress from this one, isn't it? Now? Ah, you should have a simple line like here because you don't have your eyeball in the tear duct. This is, uh, that's pink area. I'm sure you know what I mean by this. What lakes and I are realistic is delight. And the shadow. Okay, Usually we have, ah, light reflecting from or I, which can be the window, which can be the the lamp are the sun anything and usually you have a dot in the people and you can have a dog in the iris, like you can see. I don't know. The windows with saving will have, like, reflection, like deaths in my illustration techniques. I usually make a lively people withdrawing one circle, one circle and a little something here to make it like highlight here. I mean to make a little bit more realistic, but this is again about observation. Now we have a drunk, uh, nice. I let's shaded a little bit. Yes, when I wanted to say as well that the people is blank. OK, so let's just fill it with black. I mean, you're Griff. I'd to make it. Darkest part Andi around in the iris. You house. Um, Baxter, But I really love to do is just simply lightly go around and just make some lines like us. It will give it a little bit variations. Case I've ill darkened this upper island side. Draw the eyelashes. So the eyelashes are again not like straight lines. You should have some variation within it. Um, So what I love to do is to started the middle it in the top, as this is not what I meant. Okay, this was too big. So what I wanted to do is to to make it, like, more organic. He knows. So, Ah, you will have this curve like here, too. Make it A segment is actually coming out from the island. Okay, So does still have an effect off artificial eyelashes. Doesn't matter. Okay, so how some variation within it? One side, her other side curve. OK, so this is not like simple straight lines, but not some variation within it. And I went a bit crazy with what his lashes but anyways own here. Ah, these lodges like start, uh, at this outside line, this is a bit dormant, but OK, what I want is a little bit of shadow on the need. And as it is an eyeball, there will be a bit off a shadow off this off its around this. Okay, So really, really lightly. You don't need to go like two dark with us. Uh, just only it decides and add a bit of shadow into the deer duct. Okay, So what do you say? It has a bigger difference right down your, um first, I, uh Sola just, um we wise they learned about how to draw, and I so it has a shape off a plum seed. It has a tear duct. There is an eyeball, so you will see these lines are the iris, and normal position is covered up by the upper island on touches still over island. Uh, didn't know that the pupil is at the center. It is a circle. You will have a light in the eye. So you have reflections in the people and in the irises. Well are the I vs Textured on that there is a shadow on the needy upper island, and when you draw lashes, they are not just straight lines, but they have a little bit of curves in down to show they to make the illusion that they're coming out off these upper island. So let's one Teoh drawing golfed in those. 21. Drawing the Nose: in this video. We're going Teoh, talk about how to dro a nose. So if I would ask you to draw knows right now, how would it look like, um if it looked like something like this or something, like Oh, dis I'm not sure. Um but But the main thing is that when you're drawing good nose this part I'm not sure How is it cold is not really the result off any Lineburg. It was made by shading, So they made a fact that knows is coming out off the face. We're talking about the front position. OK, uh we will do it with help off shading. So on ley line work we will need for the nose as dust part and for Dat We will need to drove. We will talk about the placement of these elements in later videos So you will need to dro a circle. This is the tip of the nose and the nose will come like this. This is going to be just the line for the shading part. Andi Now there are these two holes. Okay, One is here. One is here and they are connected. Went just line. Okay, This line is actually part of this circle, which we can call the tip off de nos. So now we have do to novel, um, holes. And now we have us line here, Reach, uh, surks of approximately here and comes down here. Okay, so this is just a random knows the I think this is something path Victor's. Anything. What we can do now is to make the circle and his lines are a bit so I raise him on. But what let them like we seen so that we can do d, um, shading part day the six big pencil on we're going to, um she didn't knows the way. Let me start at the top off this circle on. Make a little bit off a triangle down here Until this line. We how at this point, I do the same. Uh, the other part. Okay, we are going to cert up here on follow this circle a little bit. Uh, the shadow shaded around as if it waas a a circle as we learned how to not circle. I mean sphere. How we learned that in the videos how to shade us fear. So shade it similarly and Actually, one part of the nose will be more in the shadow, but it really depends on the the overall shading off the whole face. Okay, so now we have here it is Nazal. Oh, here is though I'm just going to make this lines a little bit, okay? Usually are. I think everyone has this just thing below the nose. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. We will learn how to shade it or create. It's a fact in the next videos. I'm just going to, like, pointed out that it is there and then the mouth of Hollows. So basically, let's just got a a recap of to drove a nose. So what we did, we have drawn a circle. Done. We've drone dis to host below that and made just line a following d outline off D Circle. Then we did this to nozzle wines and done we a shaded, noticed sites off the nose. Andi followed the signed off de circle on DSHEA did it as if it was a sphere. I'd say the light is coming from this site. Right. So this is in a bigger shadow. This part of the nose is in a bit bigger shadow on. And then I just highlighted this lines a bit more. So yeah, this is how we drew noses. Um, remember, everyone has a different nose. Um, Onda, we will explored in in the later videos. But this are the things you need to remember how to draw me knows. Let's want to the moth part. 22. Drawing the Mouth : Okay, let's talk about how to draw a mouth. Um, So how would you draw a month right now? I guess it would be a something like this or just a simple line, or I don't even know, Um, What we need to know about drawing them off as that. We always start with the the middle line. So the middle line off the mouth is not straight. It has a angle up upwards. Then there is a little, uh, he'll side are too. Call it and Dan Derry's line down here again. So I am sure there isn't an atomic named for this point, but basically it does that your your lips aren't like straight. You have these a little pillows here to call this. Okay, now we have the upper, uh, like, which follows death line when it comes down worse. And then we have dill over late. Something left us. So this line is longer than the whole police. Okay? So or lip doesn't start, right? Right. It is end now. Again, everyone has different shape off the lake. It was really different for everyone, but let's just see again. We need to shade a little bit to get more realistic result. The thing goes, 90 upper lip is always darker. Done. Deal over. So just simply shaded on. Yes, it hasn't textures. So you can just Joseph lines here on the lower lip as light. It usually has a highlight. And Dan, you have a shadow below div over. I they'll over lip. Okay, so usually you have just a shadow here on just to Okay? There is a bit of shadow on the opening. You can like me. Ah, a bit off highlight here and there. Great. So from this we came to this. I think it does a big progress. Okay, let's continue to the year. 23. Drawing the Ear: How would you draw on year? We are going to draw a front, um, face. But still, I think we need to go through dust. What shape does it? How so? How would you draw an ear right now? It would be something like deaths. Uh, maybe I'll let's just draw an year. Okay? So the ear has a bigger, um, around it shapes a weekend. We could actually joy circle and a smaller circle below it. Andi, draw. It's shaped like this. So as if it had a big circle in the upper part and a smaller circle in the lower part. I real raised us inner circles. Now just look at your ear. We have this thing here. I am sure you know what I mean. Uh, it does, uh, different for everyone. This part And we have a line that follows the lying off the a year and a disappears like here somewhere. So were we have this thing. We have a whole right. It does a bigger hole, Onda Uh, something like deaths. And it can be real fakeness ear more realistic by shading. So take the shader and it is obviously obvious that it has a shadow below this line. Okay? And there is a whole here on. We have this part as well. I was at home. Okay, so my ear is not the best right now, but I'm really doing this from my hard on. And it is always good to see a reference follow. And we are not going to employment this, um, like foi into the random face. We're going to drill right now. This is just a reminder that rich allies should you usually keep it one doing your drawing , things like us. So let's just do our legal a recap to draw in a year. Just going to shave. So it has a bigger circle up here. It must has a smaller circle down here again. Everyone has a different here. This is just a random year from my head. There is this line following the outline off the air and just line like disappears because this part of the year becomes part of this. Okay, there is this big Oh, from which we here there is desperate on just gaps. Like together. Oh, okay. So now when we are going to Joel d ear from the front Because we will have d he had. Why does You're going to draw the whole But it will be important, Teoh, Remember its shape on that. We will this custom. Where? Start dance. Okay. Later, Rebuild Joe faces from different angles. And then we will need Teoh. Know this tanks. All right, so let's just move on and learn about placement off this facial parts. 24. Drawing The Face - Part 1.: Okay. Welcome. In this video, we're going to draw a random face and applied knowledge we got from the Prius video where we have drawn different parts of the face. I want to emphasize that everyone has a different face, a different characteristics. And these characteristics are different. Based on age, gender, ethnicity, even mood changes. Are your facial features a a lot. So what I'm going to draw right now is an absolutely random phase and are my point here is to show you some rules we should keep when we are drawing a face. Even if you had droving on image or imaginary face. Okay, let's just start. Right. Um, position your pace into the portrait position, which means, like, death on draw a line into the middle off it. I'm choosing 20 centimeters because that's how big my paper is. And it fits out of paper. Well, and it is a round number, because right now we are going to measure things. So you only the ruler as well. So this 20 centimeters means the size off this call. All right, that's that's skull. Now find a 10 centimeters. It does the middle off it on this line will tell us that positions off four eyes. So we will have the eyes on death line, and this line will be 15 centimeters white. Why have chosen this is because I need a number that can be easily divided by five. And it is like in a good proportion. Centimeter hate. So right now I'm using 15 centimeters. I'm going to like, right everything in inches in the side of the this video. All right, so now I have, like, a 15 centimeters, Uh, and the reason why I need to divide it into five even pieces as because, uh, it is five times the size off an I. And now I want you to take your finger measuring to place it on your eye and then place it into the middle off your two eyes, and you will see that the middle the size between your eyes, is exactly the size off your one eye. If that makes sense to you Now, lads, do y this 50 centimeters into five human parts, meaning free. 69 12 and 15. And now we will have another here. I'm just going to draw this like lightly here, so that you can see that. Just supposed to be an I where I will be. And what I want to add is that this size is at the edge. Can vary from chorister characters, the features off the face. But you need to keep in mind that death size will be always a size off one. I what to do with this? 20 centimeters. I want to take off 2.5 centimeters and mark death Spartz because this will mean the hair line. We will give us the hairline. Okay, so this line will mean the top off or four hat. Okay. And this is the top of the skull, and the hair can actually be, like above just this point of jihad. Well, that just get back to this sport part. So we have a 17.5. We need to divide it into free aylan parts, which gives us 5.8 this line. You asked the eye, bro. Position off the eyebrow. And this Borghi wants the end off the nose. We will have here on this part on this lower part. If we divided into a hall off. So we have, like five point a should be have here. So let's say two point nine it's here. Should give us, uh, the bottom off D a mouth. Okay, so this is the bottom off their mouth, But I'm knows off the nose. So we have this size off. Just cult, right hair. Okay. If really wide. If we divide it into half, we have the line where we have the ice positioned. Then if we take away from this coal, I think 18 off the discolor length we were have the hairline on. If we take dust size, the hairline and chin, we build need to divide it into thirds. The 1st 3rd were gay wants Dateline off the eye, bro. The 2nd 3rd regularized the bottom off the nose on. If we make this final third into gulfs, it is Give us the bottom off the mouth. 25. Drawing The Face - Part 2.: now, what I wanted to tell you is that, um these proportions are much more complicated. If you take a look on Pinterest, you will see hundreds off different types off division and etcetera. This is just a rough thing, All right. So, for example, when you were working down into a more detailed face, you might low lose thes proportions. It might happen, But again, back to art therapy. It can happen because mainly if you are not drawing a reference picture But from your a soul, I might say, Let me just show you this image. I've drawn this. This is really not the best portrait I've ever done. This nose is too long and the face is too sad. And on it is some kind off like melancholy I have inside me that I've drawn out and I feel much better on, but also if you can not as I'm drawing to be guys and I usually lose my proportions because of this. But that's my style. Actually, I'm just going to show you this Matryoshka painting and taking off the vole on. You can see that I'm drawing to be guys. But Dad iss my style a signatures time. So it does not a wrong thing to do something differently and not keep like, everything like to strictly All right, this is our to be are doing guard. And I can paint a fish with human eyes which are exaggerated as well. Ok, so make fun with art. I wanted to point us out, continue to draw the parts of the hat with more detail, and I will just show you somewhere at proportions. Okay, so, no, let's talk about a bit more of proportions. Um, let's just first draw the eyes or right. So I always start with, does I? And it is actually a bit hard to draw exactly the same shaped eyes in a mirror. Like, you know, you need to draw these eyes as as if in a mirror, I try not to draw too big eyes right now. Don't forget T tear duct and therefore, God, that we are drawing this from or head. So it really doesn't need to be that perfect. Okay, We need to draw the iris and the people. There is a reason for that. Um it is because Dave, we'll have something to do with the proportions on trying to draw people into the exact center of the iris. Okay. All right. Don't we have the Pew Bills, the iris and the roughly drone? Let's talk about the I broke because I bro's will have something to do with the nose. So we need to mark this eyeball lines I talked to you about, which is this imaginary circle around I Because we have or I broke above dad and just a little bit, um, closer. Dandy eyes to be have Okay, this is Agana. Cursed their different characteristic for everyone. What kind of fibers do you have? I'm just going to note a light line, because when we draw eyebrows were actually job her. Okay, So lots of short lines. And they say that you usually drill I rose similar to your own. I think that's true for the whole, uh, facial features, even though I don't have big eyes. But for some reason, I always love to draw eyes on big guys. They wanted to have you guys. Maybe that's why I'm drawing. But let's not get thought. Get into psychotherapy right now. Okay, so now we have the I bruise. Have a look too perfect. Okay, I don't want Teoh like, good lost in the details. But now touch your I'm Rose, and your nose starts exactly when your eyebrows are. So I'm just going to draw these lifelines down here. Uh, we have in the tip of the nose already. And when where do we have the nostrils on? That's when we need D a ruler again. So you need to Joe straight wine downwards. Do the nose denounced Riel. IHS ending right here. Okay, so this is why we needed, um, they tear duct and d i again the most perfect nose. But anyways, here is the nose. I'm going to you guys just a little bit from right now. Uh, the mouth. So we have the mouth here and how why did the mouth is and it does exactly, um, the line from the pupil downwards. So this is again a character Sick future for off ones. Uh, but it is enough proximity thing. Andi, you remember that when we were drawing the mouth? I sad, um, that the lips are not exactly starting at the end. Off your mouth, right. I hope you remember on and I try not to draw stuff face again. So I'm not going to make this mild a bit, Les said. And follow the things we lend before we have a shadow here and well out. We have the base. No, I don't want to get into much detail and shading to face Acerra, because my point here is to tell you God, these things are important when you are drawing your own characters on things with base. Let's get Let's get back to the studio school have created. So this is an imaginary character, right? But if you can see still the nostrils and where she has the tear duct right on the mouth is as long approximately as a mirror of the eyes. You know, Andy is proportion are rules. We'll make a harmony in a face you are creating from your imagination. And, uh, and that's important rather than being always like strict about everything. Okay, 26. Drawing The Face - Part 3.: All right. So now we have everything placed. Hopefully, well, And what I'm going to do is that I'm going to get rid of this lines just so that I can see them a little bit. Where is everything's, um but that it does not distracting. All right, so Okay, let's just make, um, everything a bit butter. So let's work on the shape of the I. I'm going to add the light. Actually, I'm going to get off my shading pencil. Do you remember that? I told you that we have this, uh, I've bowl lines up here, which means it's the upper eyelid. It has something like hair. Okay, now, what's going to nose? Um, I start with the holes and then, uh, with this, where does the no start and they start at the eyebrows. Ah. Do you remember that? We How'd a circle right here try to give it little shadow, andi or nose starts? Exactly. Add or, um, eyebrows, just check it at your face and the nose. This nose bone starts right here. So we will have a shadow here at this part. Could be Oh, no. Let's gather to do little shadows. So we will have obviously shadow at this, uh, part of the eye. I'm not going to go too deep into shaving right now. Just a little so that it can be like seeing this day. He knows below the nose there is this drop or have to call it. Does it really just created by a shadow? Okay, so you don't need Teoh like mine worked. Spend here we Howdy mouth. This drop is like clover, But we have the lips here. And I told you that d upper lips are dark and Dundee lover lips. So let them be like that and that we have the shadow below the lover lip which gives us this nice three dimensional effect. OK, notice Dad, when I'm shading, I'm not holding the pencil two at the top and a tip, but rather further away. Okay? And we have the chin, which is and imagine our circle again. Okay, You'll have a shot over here below the eyebrows before, but D lashes I will not go crazy with them, but so that she has some great that we have the hair line. So, like, just draw some some hair I don't know, liked us on something like the US Ah, let's draw the shape of the had, which is similar to, uh, to an egg. We have Joe here. Where do we have the neck? Beloved Joe? Okay, uh, we should draw a near it starts at the eye line and comes up almost until the the, uh I row line. Let's say it has a shaped like death and ends approximately a D end after, you know, who knows? So this is here. Let's say Andi, it it goes like this. Okay, I'm drawing this from my heart. All right, so this might not be, like, full anatomically great. This is just the symbols I have in my heart. This isn't a year Have to to make us like this. Okay, let's say she has her hair like does, and her hair is again not starting. Let's say I liked us, and we will not see her. Her ear hair. Okay. This is, like, great for a random face. No, the perfect annatto me nor the perfect portraiture. But still, it was, like, really great dot We have these rules, Andi Only to be can, like, remember and done, we can produce something like this. Okay, let's just re wise what we learned in this part of the course. So we now know that we have the size of just cold. And when we divided into help me have the line off the I. And if we take away from it 1/5 8 off for hole size, we have the hairline and from the hairline to chin, we have a size that we can the white into thirds. This'll gives us the line off the eyebrow, the bottom of the nose on the bottom, often mouth so that we have place for the chance circle may have a circle for a tip of the nose. Then no starts at the Aib Rose and the nostrils are white, as white as one size off the I. Actually, because we have exactly one size of I between the two eyes on. And these mouth is as white as the middle of the FBI. I would say so that where the pupils are everyone's faced has different features. Female and male faces have different characters, takes even age and gender like, um, has big fact on everything and even our mood. Okay, so that's going to need to lex video 27. Beginner Level Summary: All right. So how are you failing? This was fun, right? I hope that my goal gospel field that you let go off the fears off the front page of the pencil And now you are not afraid to do art on you Just enjoy it because that's our point. In this video, I'm going to summarize the bigger level skills you already have and give you some suggestions how you can use them. So, first of all, we learned how to draw lines with different properties. How to hold a pencil, how to position the pencil in your hand. V created a little Zen tangle exercise on the many project. There you were able to create an art berg entirely from lines. Then we moved to drawing shapes there. I emphasize the patients and drawing a lot of short lines in order to find a shape that you are looking for and that every object is built up off basic geometric shapes. Dan, we had a little art therapy fund, very created a simple illustration buildup off simple geometric shapes, and then they analyzed it and learned a little bit more about ourselves and about depart were off, drawing on doing art and thanks. Like Debbie learned that we can create forms from shapes By adding shadows. We learned what values are. We learned the reverse sheeting, metal and shaded a pair, an apple and a banana. We did some value exercises the shaded geometric shapes and created a sphere. A cone on Cube Dan, we learned about leaner perspective on learned to place the objects in space. So if we draw something bigger and further away from the horizon line, that it appears bigger than something that is further away on this closer to the horizon line Onda smaller than we had a coffee break where I explain you about the symbols in your head, What do we know? What we see. And if you don't remember, you should rewatch that part. And lastly, we learned how to draw the different parts of the head, the eyes, the nose, the month on the ears. And then we have drawn a random face on that waas a lot on. That was just enough for the beginner level. And I can tell you you can confidently stop right here because we're big in our level skills. You can create art you can live from, and that was a heart symptoms because you need to realize, I hope you already realised that you don't need super problems to be successful in Are you just need to do it so less taken insight into different visual industries. There you could have a chance to apply the beginner level drawing skills. So, let's say illustration. You can create easy Children's book illustrations easier to joing. Yes, it is better for younger audience. Just take a look on any book or drawing on a toy. They are simple shapes with color, so what you need to do know is to learn more about color and the technique. For example, it can be watercolor, wash or digital. You can use his knowledge for surface pattern design. Most of the text type patterns don't contain difficult layer rings or application off perspective or rendering. They usually contain visually appealing shapes with flat color. Just take a look at the next times you have at home, so if you're interested in that, take a stepped over its learning the digital process of creating a pattern, Let's say in illustrator follow shop or even appropriate. Let's talk about graphic design. You can apply this knowledge in graphic design logos. I can scrape arts again are mostly build up from simple shapes and flat color. I bet there thousands of successful graphic designers who cannot drop a proper portrait, and that's just fine. What I want to point out, that you don't need to think that little about yourself and your abilities. All the things that you could know shouldn't into me date you, but you should look at them as possibilities. There are so many things you can learn about art doing art living as an artist, but that shouldn't stop you from doing what you already know. So don't say I'm not going to create this illustration because I don't know the two point first active. Maybe there's just not your thing. Maybe shading is not your thing. Then you should stick to Lineburg. You can build an entire portfolio, you on both technical line drawing and it is beautiful and it is amazing. Andi Andi Salt for So it is even better because they then you are needing down and it may lead to greater success, and you can just create art for art's sake. You don't need to be an illustrator, A graphic designer or surface button. I just want to tell you believe in yourself and your abilities, So use what you know. Do what you can, but also never lose your curiosity and never stop learning and seeing the possibilities all around you and in you. 28. The Project: talking about the pro Jack. Create a final artwork off your choice. If you like to disentangle project the most, then find a more complicated subject on created with disentangle style. If you are more into illustration, build up an entire scene with applying the perspective, for example, and simple shapes as we did with House Project. And you can also implement color if you want. If you're more into traditional shaded drawings than I suggest you get an object, observe it a little bit on applied in reverse shading method and shape it like that If you like the facial proportions part I drove around the face or imaginary character by keeping some of the proportions like If you remember, I tend to Joel Big eyes on It is really not a problem. If you do death, you can experiment with changing the proportions on and explored ways you you like to job. So again, I'm not forcing observation. I want you to draw from inside you to let your symbols out and so that we can level them up . Meat observation. In the intermediate level, don't be afraid to job how you draw. Um, don't be ashamed of fit. I I'm really excited to see what you create on. I will give you feedback. OK? I will try to give feedback to all of your project because you are importance to me guys. 29. Final Thoughts: So we are at the end off these level. Thank you for watching. I hope that now you have the feeling that you can do anything in the world. I encourage you to use your knowledge and research possibilities where you can use them. Let it be illustration. Surface passion design or graphic design or watercolor painting. I recommend you to keep a regular practice in your job, so keep expanding your visual vocabulary by regularly doing ordinary objects. It is enough to catch them. You can also shake them, but my point is to make your eyes curious. Look for contour lines, highlights and shadows and walk around in the world Does curious eyes and if you will, let's meet in the intermediate level skills. Don't forget the follow me on social media or on Instagram and Facebook and also here in skill share, and I would be so thankful for a review. It helps me understand you better, and it helps the course Teoh rank higher so that others can find it more easily. Thank you for watching again. I can't wait to see your artifacts
