Transcripts

1. Introduction: Human characters are widely used in the situations we can use lend to express our feelings and the tail stories. Spatial and a unique characters can make our illustrations more increasing. So it is important to learn how to draw a unique character in a single way. Hi, I'm Charles eyeing an artist plan Taiwan. In this class, we will learn a simple method to making unique territories. I will guide you step-by-step to make you easily understand the sites. You will learn how to finish neural characterised by a black and white. Beautiful ways. Cell relatives will be given to Mecca, you'd throw battery. You will also see that Turing projects about how to finish an exemple character utterly its crest, you can draw a unique territory in a very simple way. Now we have reached the end of the introduction. Let's start our list and Other Sampling. 2. Overview: First, let us have an overview about what we, we all learn. We are going to less than three times over characters. Type one, basic type, tab2 with head, type a, three, old male. Finally, we will learn how to punish our curators with black and white. Now we can formally start our lasers. 3. Character: Type I: Second one, basic type. In this section, we will learn in general by the creative method to draw a unique human character. I call this method space type baggies method. We had draw almost all kinds of human capabilities. There Girl in the left of this page is drawn by this method. In the latest sections, we can see two more methods for sound spatial completions. Now let's poke sounder base type. And so we can see the girl at the left side has a simple by the spatial form. It is neither created by thinking, by running a more intuitive way. That is why we can make our character unique. Law example, a teller lifestyle is estimated by the weekend, also show some magical ones, biowaste management. In this page, these characters are driven by the same method. As we can see. They look quite different from each other. Most of layer here to sat very spatial. So I'll their body shapes. Lake m, b, tao, solo kids. They can't be woman or man. Let result in varying acquired the lock your range by one simple method. Can also be c matrix or symmetric there, right, is to asymmetric the others. Symmetric. Symmetric ones can easily be used in some topics about the commercial design. It is because they can mean memorize more easy. Symmetric ones can be used as carriages. Illustrations, layer due to more nature, less metric ones. Now, laced Luke does steps to draw a human character. We will see several examples by layer cloying processes. After we go through these steps. They are four steps to Joy humane care in. The first step is to draw a rendering ship you lived, lays no limb interval watershed, usual, true. Because it is a relationship. It can inspires to figure out a unique design for human kerogen. Also, it can make us think out of the box like we used to. Second step is to draw a line to separate and these shape into two parts. The apple part will be used as had, the low part will be used as body. Due to a readiness of law previous step, the steps of a head everybody for one character could be very special. The third step is to draw the region. Because the original needs of a head shape, the hairdo could be very unique. We can see more different kinds of hair to, in later examples. Spatial hair to embody shape are the keys to make why human character unique. And final step is to finish our details such as facial expression, hands and legs. As we can notice, the chefs of the hands and legs will clearly the likely shape of his. By this kind of similarity, we can make out the xy mode della Kate. After we've gone through the steps, less located signing examples by layer touring processes. Let's take a look at this example. On the right side of the page is love punished characters. We will see is joining process. At the lower left side of this page. It is located we have seen in the previous page. Now we look deeper into Eat. First. Let us, we draw a random shape. Then we rotate it through a procedure we like. Second, we draw a line to separate the shape. Laval Heart is the head, the below part is the body. Third, less Schroeder region of hails. Finally, we add an a remainder details to our Character Controller facial expression for each language or the hands and legs. Marie. In the end, we add the details to the close. For now, we have finished with scarcity. Let's take a look at another example on the right side of this page. When they're finished characters, we will see is drawing process at left side of this page. First less we draw a random shape. Then we rotate it to a procedure we like say can we draw a line to separate the shape? Laval part is the head, the below part is in the body. Third, let's show the region of hairs. Finally, we add an a remainder details Lao Character Controller facial expression for each language, draw the hands and legs. Marie. Notice that we use part of the original ship master lakes. In the end. We add the details to the close. For now we have with scarcity. Let's take a look at our final example. It is a symmetric one. The right side of this page is the finished character. We will see some joy in process at the lower left side of this page. First, let's redraw a random shape. Second, we draw a line to separate the shape. Law will part is the head, below part isn't the body. Third, let's show the region of here's Finally, we add an a remainder details Lao character. We draw our facial expression. When we add the details. Then we draw the hands and legs Marine Corps now we have finished with scarcity. 4. Character: Type II: Section two with head. In this section, we will learn another way to draw a unique human character. I call this method or waste head. It is very similar to the method that we learned from the previous section. Yet a weekend produce characters with heads. The girl left over these page is drawn by this mass, but as we can see, the girl has a hat down her hate him is patriot. These six characters, the same method. As we can see. They are quite different from each other. They have spatial hair 2s with heads are mm, hairdos and the heads can vary a lot under this method. Besides, we can notice that it has mostly feedstock characters, body shape, who we are seeds. It makes each character look more excrete. Also, learn characters can also be symmetric or asymmetric. Lambda y in the first row is metric and the alums are symmetric. Now let's look at less tabs to draw human character, we stay ahead. We will see several examples by layer joining processes. Delta. We go through these steps, lay out steps to Joy human character with a head. The first step is to draw it went in shape. You like layers, no limited for what a shaver You should draw. Because it is a rendering shape indicating inspires to figure out a unique enzyme. Well humane care. Also, it can make us think out of LA packs that were used to true. The second step is to draw a line to separate these shape into two parts. The upper part will be used as had, the low part that will be used AS had N-body. Qj were randomness of the previous step. The shapes of a head, head, and a body of one character could be very spatial. The third step is to draw the region of head. The fourth step is to draw a region of hairs. Because a Renee's overhead ship, the HER2 could be very unique. The final step is to a pH layer details such as spatial integration, hand and relate this. After we have gone through the steps. Let's look at assignment then, both by joining processes and less take a dedicated basic tempo. The right style for this page is a finished character. We will see is joining process. At the lower left side of this page. A carriage or we haven't seen in previous page. Now we will go deeper into it. First. Reservoir in the shade. Then we rotate it to the procedure we like set and then wait to ally to savor idealized shape me about parties. The head lamp glow party there, rest. I will Abadi. Third, we draw a line to separate the shape. P or bow par is the head, the blowhard, either body force test to a region our heads. Finally, we aid or remain at details to our K12. We intraoral phasor is patient for eat. Now we turn our hands and legs for it in again and we add the details to a close. For now, we have finished these cavitary. Let's take a look at another example. The write psi of least page in the opinion-based character we will see is throwing process parallel salaries page first, Lester in the shade. Then we rotate it to the procedure we like I said, and they're going to align to a stable, idealized shape. Me about parties, the head lamp glow party, their rates double Abadi. Crd. We draw a line to separate the shape. Here Bo par is a head. The blowhard either body force test through a region of heads. Finally weighed every man a details to our K12. For now, we have finished these cavitary less take a look at in the final exam home. It is matrix 21. The right side of this page is the finished character. We will see is throwing prices it or left side of this page. First, let's draw a ring, a shape set, and then we draw a line to separate us shape the above parties, the head, now below party the rest of the body. Third, we draw a line to separate law shape. Here both parties reheat the blow party, the body force test to a region of Heels. Finally, we aid delivery men at details to our K12. For now, we have finished this game tree. 5. Character: Type III: Second three, all men. In this section, we all learn in general by the creative method to draw unique old men. They are most obvious characteristic of n all men in their appeared on his face. The old man in the left of this page H1. By this method, we can see that he has a special form, beard like makes this kind of character unique. We will learn how to do it in the remaining videos. In this page, this six characters, altruism by the same method. As we can see, layer Duke quiet, different from each other. The shapes are layer period, average spatial. So our layer body shapes. The result can vary quite a large range by one simple method. They can also be symmetric or asymmetric. The write is true asymmetric, the others as matrix. Now, let's look at those steps. Draw an old man. We will see several examples by layer joining processes. After we go through the step by steps to draw and old men. First step is to draw a wendy shaping your life lays no limit for what is shaving issue too. Because it is a rendering shape indicating inspired to pick out and unique inline for humane care written. Also, it can make a think out of the box that we used to. Second step to draw a line to separate lists shaped into two parts. The apple cart will be used to us. The low part will be used as body. Due to the randomness of low previous step, the shares of a head and body of one-character Kobe very spatial. Third step is to draw a region weird love. Fourth step is to reach our hails. Because the randomness of life chapeau had appeared in the hell do could be very unique. The final step is to finish our details, such as Pashto is rationed hands and lakes. After we come through this steps, let's look at assigning memos by layer drawing processes. Less. Take a look at the list example. Learned lifestyle is paid, is low finished painter. We will see is drawing classes. And on the left side of this, it is like aerator we have seen in previous page. Now will look deeper into it. First, less sure when the shape. Then we rotate it to the position we like. Tension will draw a line to separate the less Shake. Bow part is the head, the below part is the body. Third, we draw some lines to separate oval shape. Look below parties that period, knowable party, the rest of the hand or less draw a region of a heads. We add allowing many details to our curators. We told her facial expression for it. Then we throw our hands and legs for it. In the end, we added details to a close. For now, we have finished this character. Let's take a look at and download them home. The writing style is low pianist character. We will see is drawing process at another left salaries page. First, less random shape. Then we rotated to the position we like taken will draw a line to separate the less we are. Bo part is the head, the below part is the body. Then we could add a head for it. We've drawn some lines to separate oval shape. Let below part is the period knowable party, the rest of the Hague worth. Let's draw a region of a heals. We add, allowing many details to our curators, will turn a facial expression for it. Then we turn our hands and legs for it. In the end, we added details to a close. For now, we have finished this character. Let's take a look at another final example. It is a symmetric one. The lifestyle of list is low finished painter. We will see is drawing classes. And on the left side with me, first, less sure when the shape taken, we draw a line to separate the less shape. Yeah, Bo part is the head, the below part in the body. Third, we'll summarize two separate oval shape. Look below part is the period knowable party. The rest of the fourth, let's draw a region behaves. Normally. We add allowing men at details to our heritage. We turn a facial expression for it. Then we turn our hands and legs for it. For now, we have finished miscarriages. 6. Finish Your Character by B&W: In this section, we start to color our characters with a black and white pattern. The character at the lower left of this page is the finished example. We will see how it can be done includes Davis. Several tips will also be given to throw battery less. Firstly, some hills. Here is no first year words to throw battery. We feel region, we start pattern the airbase nearby region, you CSL lighter one, vice versa. Way are some notations, a bell for white and dark. Now the character of this page, for example, the face of this character is marked light. It is because is overall lightness is relatively lighter in the whole picture. It's colored, which is learn nearby region of love face is unmarked. Earth Park is hails, which are also the nearby region of the phase, are marketers talk, lay our field and we start her patterns. Then Le Blanc patent on the face. From a verb exempt home, we can see a row inside IT. Lattice, we feel region we started Pat and if VS and nearby region is lighter and we can continue to go through this example to understand the, the more the other half of the head you see, sir, lighter pattern because it's nearby region, heads are darker. Now Taba half of these hat will appear to. We start with whack, because its pattern is lighter. Now flower alpha hat will join them in a lighter way because if X1 is darker, you tend to see the close of this character. Most of the curves after Yoda Wiesel ITER pattern. It is because the color and enhance our darkroom. One important thing we should notice is that which regions are lighter and which ones aren't artery are not fixed. Layout e appointed by which regions new compared to a darker region can also be a wider region where it compares to some different region. Whole idea of the heap is about contrast. We make a nearby regions contrast highly enlightened iss. This idea cannot only be applied with black and white patterns, but also with colors. Alright, at least TV mind can make you to a battery. Here is the secondary theme for wheat withdraw battered, lad is reach every few hours Theatre with different kinds of pattern. Sample character in this page is filled with different kinds of patterns. Nick line is field, we start pad and then close. It is filled with line pad and curb. Hence, it is blatantly 22 per leg is leave lend itself to end. Coheres combines different kinds of padded. A battle over her hat is a field with that pattern. The top of her hat is a field. We started pattern. The sunflower on her hat is drawn only bang lines. Can notice one thing from above, lattice, penn is out to neighboring regions are different in the max contrast for separating different regions clearly also different kinds of patterns also enrich the whole character. Mescaline. We can separate the patterns into three categories. Layout, touchpad and my pan and, and the flight plenty, the pattern. We can switch between these three via we are drawing. Now, we have finished and the learning of drawing kids. Let's turn to the drawing process of this character. The top number. Okay. No. No. Okay. 7. Final: Good for you that you have reached the end of the class, the party to draw a curvature by their message that you have learned. You can also write to you appealing while throwing your project. I encourage you to share your project to others and I'll spill shape. You will receive feedback about your drawing. Also is great to see the difference between different creators. Your project can inspire others to do a battery. You can also leave me your review, uh, boundaries class. It can magazine, know more about how you feel. And they encouraged me to share more latitude to you in later classes. And please, we'll create West gain question. See you next time.
