1. Introduction to the class: killer one and welcome to drink exercises seriously. Glasses Dedicated doing for winning drawing skills My name is feeling animal painter illustrator in our future. Working in a great to feel since 2000 and three in this bus, we'll talk about material that you'll need to follow me alone. In this course, all the other courses in more detail such pencils, charcoal thinks and course erasers also make some essential exercises and see how to apply them in actual dry their stuff. Simple. It's great simple lines and see how divided its war. It's more parts. Oh, was the one goal in mind and that seat. How the human face is divided into smaller sections and how you can better understand all the elements that form face whoever doing, uh, some dots connecting. See how to create straight lines about ruler. Create one point perspective, which will help you, of course, when it comes to some later classes will talk about prospective more, We believe hurrying some drawings objects that you see in front of us that you can find at your home and see how the old can fit inside the performance off, drawing whatever form of paper that you're using real needs just a few ordinary things that you can find home little then. But you will be looking at them toe ordinary. You find that you can make one year old some light, have your paper. You could even make transparent. Great, so you can look at your objects through it. Find only. We'll talk about human figure besides you and front you. It's some elements that are not so static. And one more thing for those who want even more who create on architectural drawing drawing off the castle so that can be used for another technique of the time. I like to use and it's what color and you'll see how about the process. And you have speed up video often actually called drawing, Go building to join class, and I hope to do so. So see in a second 2. Materials - Pencils: thanks for joining the last on Let's start the first thing that you are attention a Spence ALS, some ordinary material that you can find any our supply store. But here is the more on that talked about. Those crabbing vessels come in varying degrees of hardness, which is controlled. The amount of plate that this mixed with graphite with last place graphite softer and with more play is hard, so that start on sees about. As you can see here we have pencils that have different numbers changing in this case from eight B to age A B softness and toe H. In this case, these harnessed the primary scale used for art. Pencils is known as European letter scale and ordinary from 10 B 10 h. Oftentimes, different manufacturers have different numbers and their sets. In this case, I'm using this cocaine or check set of pencils that are already sharpened. But usually I usually like to do is sharpen my pencils it till it tonight. But more about that later. Besides this European letter scale, there is also something called the American skill, and it has five degrees 1 to 2.5 3 and four and theoretically one is equivalent toe a B pencil softness. In that scale, who is going HB 2.5 F three H and four finally toe beach about wanting to remembers that neither been or us scale is standardized. Thus, two pencils with same number different manufacturers. When, Where In their hardness. So it's important. So you can choose pencil from one good manufacturer. In my case, I like to use this checked manufacturer. So what you gonna do first in the first exercise and knowing our pencils in our material is still vests your pencils by making the single straight line on page and noting the pencils that you use? No. Which line is that? That's and be I would make a few strokes, see how it caves. That would be okay. Six trying to decide. Thanks for your scribble line five B. Maybe this is Pete. Now we come to HB and if we go back and see here, this is a B C H B. You would never my press harder. It's not the same as this'll one. Here This f h try the sounds. See how all this works like a cent when I'm using my pencils. I really like to use this sharp pencil trump. And what I like to do before that I like toe Do this utility knife What I'll achieve by doing this, I don't expose more off the left police vessel. I can draw for longer periods of time and you can use this standing paper can be rougher or softer so that you can put it into a great shot. Except you can use that it's softer or harder. And if you look here, she sari shop point So it's dropped. He's gonna also we have good lines and you don't have toe shopping defense. Old time. Also, if you have, you can have really thicker lines. When your men fill these Sharptons that way like to see here. That's always a good thing. And you can have both, uh, this y line and this point also what you can do if you have that sending paper, you can make what shape vessel like this that can be seen. So when you're drawing, have I think so or you can even blunted Have this. Also, when you're working with pencils, what are like do is occasionally drawing change the angle vessel and rotated in your hand while you're drawing from time to time. So this goes evenly go. That's for regular pencil. Another great vessels that your canoes in the dialect using work are the mechanical pencils and we cannot cope. Passes owes a great stool. Here I have. There are seven millimeters of mechanical pencils and the graphite for these pencils come in four thickness here. Three millimeters, 0567 and 09 and graphic used for these purposes range from 48 toe for four beato for H and this case I have 07 Let's inside with thickness off to be and it also has a razor on top. So very handy that's it for our pencils and next stop will talk about charcoal. 3. Materials - Charcoal and erasers: along with the graphite charcoal is among the most coming. Drying comes in three basic quotes. Fellow compressed and trouble for our line drawing. We'll be using one willow sticks struggle, expressed and, of course, traveling pencils like you see these drawings that behind me made charcoal. And as I mentioned soon enough, like using charcoal for our larger scale, drawing for smaller drawing, my preferred choice. Fill the best. So that's continue what we have here. I charcoal usually Turkle. Like I said, it's called one a real because it's commonly made from pieces off wind willow treated in kilns heated and stuff like that. So it's ready for use. We can have it and sticks thes. It's like compressed charcoal this for you can have it in fences like this and like you see if you can see we can read this medium and this one says soft. I like to use my charcoal for big scale drawing. Have seen behind me video, and as you see, it's nice, thick lines thes what happens. Usually it's when you're using charcoal electors with Mike all five fingers that gives me control my thumb being dump All right, index finger beneath and control very thickness, but it usually happens with charcoal. You press harder like this. It breaks off, so it's. And if you don't want toe much fingers, you could use something like this holder truck order holder so you can drop it. This'll way it loses some certain drawing, but this is great toe to use what we have. Like I said, this is compressed charcoal, and it gives a little bit thinner lines so you can you can somehow compared to pencils. Regular charcoal comes sticks, sometimes beef pencils and the's compressed charcoal that can be round shape or in other shapes these more harder. And finally, we have charcoal and this one, so you can also sharpen them. Trump. This can continue to work or again, you can use details. Knife. It all depends on your preference. It can be a bit messy, but introduced it like safe. Most of the time. They're using charcoal East for big skill drawing and pencils for a smaller one. No, now we come to certain well, it's a tricky part drawing that comes to racing. We have some artists that award erasing. They don't want it on, but he wants to have his pristine surface and heavy racing can modify the surface on the text church off paper. On the other hand, Waas like to embrace eraser and process off Racist. For example, Metis famous French painter, made racing part off. His drawing on in this class way will need some rest. So well, talk about some of the research it we'll be using. Different races, of course, can modify your drawing in different ways. And now we come to a message part drawing. No, another important part. Drawing racing. Of course. Some artists Werth racing for many reasons, but for most of all, they want toe, preserve the surface of the paper, and in their minds, racing can modify the surface or texture orders. Uh, but I would not suggest if you can use us. I can only show you some of the races that I use. First of all, we have this kneaded eraser that, you know, grams. But before using your maybe should want, but your fingers tried to soften it up a bit. Again, I'm using this immediately. Racer Bright probably excel a small one, but it's needed. And the good thing about nudity, Razor that it leaves no cramps, and it can be used the lift crumbs for the paper on the it's good for like take For most of all, for this charcoal, you can change the shape, or, if you're needed razor needed, you can have it point. It can easily, I think, from the surface. And if it becomes 30 undressed, take me inside you. Like I said, mostly good for charcoal drawing, but you can use it pencils and then get 30 just a couple times and be ready. Go. So when you have surface that you that overdid it with lines, do this with injuries. It may not delete the entire line, but it's good just to give some surface a little bit less off that charcoal. Or, of course, there other pencil. You can have it in your heart story. In many ways, you can use it race, and if you need so sharper edges, you can always use a kitchen knife or your still it. The knife. Make this wet shape and finally and comes to razor. You can use this. Wait a minute pencil. You have you need precision. You need a little racing to do. Little usually comes with a small brush on the other side so you can feel goes this small 4. Materials - Ink: Finally, we have our thanks and talk about using the ink in your work. First, you can use brushes. Here's to think affordable thing toe by, but be when I'm using my ink. Like to put it in some other container like this one here and amusing brush. Put it. Have this towel. Just think the excess brush and then draw. Depending on the brush that you have, you can make thinner and thinker, depending on the type of drawing that you want to make. It can be from so animal for or you can have synthetic brushes. Well, you work like this brush here. The most expensive brushes that you can buy are made from weasel hair, but also synthetic Sable's are the fraction of the cost, and they're also fine, so thinner. Why like this? Also, when you're using ink, you can use your bench. Go the holders like the's one so you can have arrange nips. Whatever cold Justin, place them inside the holder, Lippett access and then trump. They're very good for some detailed work. If you take too much ink, if they think on paper and drops you, I don't like using that. I think you can use these pencils that come in also. Where's Chiklis? I told with numbers. This is one pin lens. Or this year there are many manufacturers. What is that I'm having here? It's UNIP in what? Trade off pigment inside. So thanks very good for drawing projects and finally, uh, what I'm having here. Japanese mental brush Ben on its what order? New martyr stuff that. But instead off having that other shape. It has this brush shape on stuff, and it's great because you can make in minds thinker lines or very thick like like these. So it's a good thing because it's all in one learn, depending. Pressure can go light. You can go, I think. Finally, some workers with some different in line combine it for writing lettering. I don't think on the project 5. Exercise 1: for this exercise. We'll make fuel lines horizontal and vertical and try in this exercise till find the half this line. So I some it will be something like this. Here matter it. See if that this druid middle and the goal of this exercise is to train your eye to find the half off the climb and to see if you can train your eye to see better and to evaluate certain lines and the length of these lines. So and then you're done that when you find half of that line tryingto find half, then measure, See, if you all right, I think he's Don't worry. If you spell it first, it's it's okay. And, uh, then fund smoker, smaller parts. When you done with one line, make another one. Tried to measure and find Where's the half measure to see if you're right. Like See, I was wrong. So it's probably here somewhere. Measure again. Okay, I was wrong. It happens. Maybe not So the second time. Okay. - Also , with exercise as a continuation of this exercise to make another straight line. Then find middle. Check if that these middle Okay, 10 do. I'm not lying. That would be a bit sure. And I tried to make on the lips Oops, again that always come in handy for many reasons. So if you're say, for instance, trying to draw ahead, you can try to draw some sort of middle. This is so shape, Mark is that they make and then like so we have a center line here. What? You should do it. Find the center measured. Make it quick. Yes. And then this life in three, let's say, equals lines. One line here I don't know except will be in place gross and have place for deep measure the distance between the eyebrows and up off the chin. It's around here, so if you measure it, that would be a place for our nose. Nose is its wide s. The distance between the eyes and those will be the place for your no truth. And this is half of the distance between the tip of the nose. Jeanne in the mouth somewhere there weapon. But mouth is closer to the personal stent of change. So this place that would be for the mouth I hope you're seeing all this it and then she these a road construction lines that can make. And now we can start with tears years somewhere between the eyebrows and picked with nose like another line here, here and then you drove shape years, of course. This place for are nice for her, for him. So now that we have place for eyes for eyebrows, nose, mouth, you can do measure the business between chin top of the nose eyebrows and this will be our place for hair. And, of course, here goes from the skull. There's Nick and the shoulders. This is really rough growing, but it shows how we can use are measuring on how we can apply those by building that we've discussed earlier on how to use it on a particular subject. This this time how to make a face. 6. Exercise 2: for next exercise. We will be creating dots, then connecting them in orderto create new dry. So you can do is to create, shake it up another and make a straight line from one to another. Then create does here like that. First, make another dot here. Okay, you see, I'm constantly shifting and changing the angle of the paper so I can do it. Market. So what can we do next? Creates another dogs, for example? Okay, here's and then what I would do next. It's still connect these eyes and then so back the making dots. You can have some elements. Also, this is with exercise for, Let's say, making perspective, that's that's here. So this is our perspective. Point so and we'll talk about one point perspective in order to make her drawing. That's basically so during this you have Look, let's see Korder and we're going to do next. Mr Grigg doorway. Some sort. Of course. Maybe I should pull this line. All the vertical and some of the horizontal lines will remain the purpose of this exercise . It's the I've all of the elements and try to make the lines fairly straightness possible. But that's a change. Don't succeed first. It's all natural. So no, have something like a doorway here, something like that. So we can continue our drawing. What else? We can do here, Farther pulls line there. Okay, Maybe make another one there and then So they're tous, and now we can even directly Some are previous exercise by dividing lines. So what we can do still okay, This line here and think about it. I have That's accurate. It's not your minute. Okay? Thank you. Good to go, then. Dividing it. In fact, that's fine. That and this. Yeah, maybe that and that that way. Made some doorways. Gonna makes a letter. These will be side the worst in this four door also. Okay, make another result line like that. And in this case, we can make used to make some ceiling decorations or whatever. Just practice our hand and we can repeat that Here you can make I have make that here. So we know the with about this shape. You had this line in half. It's here. Thank you. Here, Here. So what else you can do? Maybe make window here or frame again? Exercise? You're I find 1/2. In a way, this exercise is a continuation off the previous one. Okay, so basically, this is our exercise. You can continue behind doors and this side. This side is wealth making some decorations, tiles, floor. Well, have more that you okay? Stuff like that. Total depending on how you want toe go into details about witness and that's it. Which could finally do then take the eraser race lines no longer needed. So this is basically it on. And now we see how you can make a simple one point perspective drawing using just simple dots and connecting them, creating lights. So practice this. It was simple. A four paper printing. And when you're drawing rookies, you have another piece of paper that will be enough to go beneath that one and start drawing. 7. Exercise 3 part 1: for third exercise will be drawing still life like this one. I arranged a couple of objects abo cup and face on a table. So one of the ways you can do it, it still look it through. Well, finder. And here are some parts if you find her, I just cut it out from a single piece off paper with 6 300 grams paper and abusing these clips to put them all together. So when you're watching a subject so you find her, you can arrange and make the proportions off your drawing. So when you have paper, so you see so you can make it, you'd make this angular shape and cut it with you're filleting knife, scissors and I even put and also put some markings So you know, what's the mentions off paper with markings? Every two centimeters show but inches. But I guess 35 centimeters approximately about 14 inches. So what you gonna do? You gonna place cream that and you know this clips to hold them together and then look through the viewfinder at your subject to find the right composition. Also, what you can do is have transparent sheet, plastic and make a similar grid line over it with some markers. I also used two centimeters apart from these lies. Work to go and horizontal. So you can also put that on your you find her so you can have even more options. And this great is beneficial because then you can make similar great on your paper and try toe See how the object that you're drawing is going toe appear on your paper What you got Arrange the numbers this together on duh to one side and do, uh, the agonal as well Clampetts. And for more stability. But one other, like on this last one. So when you're drawing but it straight in front of you, Ben, look through the eye toe fruit through the view finder to see your subject matter. So you have all your subjects objects actually inside the frame. If you have that tried toe, see if you have an aggregate shape for Noro shape in your drawing to see if that the image of the object that will contain all the elements of your drawing like this and one other thing that you can also try the look is to look and find the rule of thirds in your in a subject matter trying. So I tried to see that as well. Like in this example. As you can see, uh, raise is in the middle and occupies a certain area. The cup is in the right side, most twisted two parts, and the upper part is in the middle. Older, 2nd 3rd here, and the ball is in the lower left. So you told, gives certain competition off your drink. And now that we've gone through, all that lets that dry. So let's tucked aside. Seen through my viewfinder. The bottom third off. My drawing should have that base or table that I placed my objects that I should draw. So first of all, I'll find the half off the paper time drawing and see again have two papers. One that pool uses the buffer and the one that I've joined amusing plain print paper. Because this is just an exercise no find first half and like in previous and cassettes, it's all about connecting the ducks or, in this case, creases made. So we have the central and, uh, of course, one of the third will be for the table, so tried toe by high bowling divide. This central line in the third's will be here. That's potential. Here. Market again. Fancy. Oh, that's about it. Cherries. For us. It's big hearted toe. Find those thirds than have spent. I don't. Doesn't matter if you do it as you practice. Okay, Now that we know, uh, this is the line for our table. So markets here, here, you can do it even with the ruler. But I think practice sink, and it's better to do it. Freehand! Okay, so now we have the surface when it great guts with the back wall. And now we have toe see and make that overall former shape off are drawing which will contain all the elements off. You're doing so well. Look through about you find there and see what it's all that also what we can do. He's also find third's in the horizontal line. So I guess it will be somewhere here. No, maybe here and that's about it. See which one of these? Okay. Thats what? This one here. I know that we have with guns. Well, like Carol alive. 1st 1 center lines. Uh, the 2nd 1 You can always trust that that's right. But this time, a little bit off here. Yeah, checks again. The other side. That's good. So how do they know that we can start doing our shape? We look at our tabled it where the shapes are and trying to make that aggregates shape. So let's start around that or even place this left here. I stopped here and here. So we have just roughly place that line there so we can continue our work. What here? Dos that you can then connect. And also, when you're working, besides looking at your shape tried to look at your negatives, negative shapes as well, and I'll explain that in a second. 8. Exercise 3 part 2: so basically its shape, the aggregate shape or the overall shape, form or shape off your drawing in which fall off the elements off. Your drawing will kind, gentle, and that way all of these things will not fall off the page or something like that. Like I said earlier, you may look at your negative shapes, so shapes around you're overall shape and see what the form triangles, squares and that will help you get, well, fairly accurate drawing. So let's start. And probably the best is to start with shape that is in the middle. We already through the center line on that. My should reflect the other one as well. Square here and or thunder's full. We hope I think this. Connect the lines, See if everything is all right. Side should be just like this one. Look, in this case, Peter here shape and from there we will try to see where next part lands create. All right, so I'm sorry the next step you hear and make it on the other side. But you can do you can. One of the methods you can do you can do 1st 1 side than the other, but off the time I like course simultaneously on both sides. Just straight lines. Get this geometry over the shape that I'm drawing, and later I'll use some characters and stuff like that. Then we'll move on. Look it, threaten our hand and see where other lines are at. Hello, You better drawing tried to remain the same posture and the look at your subject matter from same height from same position. So this is the place where it touches my heart to go. So touch here straight line. You see, when I'm drawing these little drawings, I like the rotate my paper as much as I can make. Does that lead line should So soon enough, we're having that shape way. Yeah, and finally they have that course that should be here somewhere and again. Like I said, try to see those negative shapes as well. See what they fall that can also help you a great deal on your droid when were, let's say, satisfied. First up we are we could make the second and I'll start with this. It starts or here frequently. Look on the subject that you're drawing and stuff paper or no for this. So I just have this straight line and from that line, find the middle. Good right? Wait. Yeah, well, you can your race. So now you know when you want to connect, That's the first Reporter bow. And also, there's this life here. Another overall. Shape off the people. Finally mule, move on toe. Last object. That is so another. Where is on the line? What's with here? I think here, of course. Central. What happens? Okay, but remember correct. Okay. Now that we have made our first geometric shape, we should know. Paul, these straight lines forward from backward. Draw them as well. Are you know, holding it like that? My fingers first. That's just the paper. Before I make more me, there's signified thickness. This truth in the last thing that they have, Do they make handle there, which overlapping 9. Exercise 3 part 3: That's it for now. For parts cup and move on. Go back to our main 100 BC. There's a little what a similar here. Follow this life here as well as here The beginning. OK, and finally more to our vote. See how a white central here and we'll just see where deadline goes in comparison to other objects, - it comes to drawing. Okay, straight object tries best way practice and become better. You're craft. So this is basically conscious working with this construction lines. And we can finally the corrupt, political, softer pencil. So now that we have construction, Liz can start second subject. That's all those a little 92 shapes healthy went into our drawing. - The reason why I'm doing this thicker line show you. You can see construction lines and the ones applying our object or objects. So that's it. Basically, that drawing meet so are exercise, and I suggest you keep all of these lines as a reference for your other work. It's always good to keep the stuff that you did as a reminder on the mistakes that you made write things that you do. So each time you make another drawing, you have a reference how you did it before and see the progress and see if you are making progress or not. Are. If not, go back on. Think about what you should change and how to go about it. Hell, to become better at your drink, you can do eventually. You feel like you can race so the lines. But like I said, try toe. Keep as a reference what you did. Okay, Thanks. Dinner racer. Do you think some of the alliance would be lighter? Usually like their lines are those that have light and darker lines are the ones that are shed. So I'm just like some of the lines that and there looks like Also I'm used to make certain small changes. The shape. Right, sir, I'm good thing about this eraser is that he doesn't leave crumbs. Maybe I should use for B. Was it to have some kind of creation? Your life? Sure, for the light and how it shape your joy. Maybe here dry. Good show thickness of your object. So we know this is thinner than thickness. Of course, you can go on with this drawing and shaded that more about that. You can about that. You can see in my class about shading objects by other drawing exercise. Plus, this will be enough for the sex and this one. So try it out. I remember. First, see, what is your format? If you're drawing, it could be bigger than basic smaller. But whatever side it is, all your objects should fit and stay inside the formal drawing. Make Orel shape individual place objects, See how they correlate the one another recognized this negative shapes you hear forms a triangle here form some kind of letter. Let's say Pete way have a well here. But we have this small shape, this negative shape here, which kind of reminds me hook, I don't see this shape here looking bigger. You can even try to sect or make them smaller second shape so you can recognize and see if they exist on your elements or objects that you're drawing and seeing in front of you. That's it for now.
