Postcards from Barcelona


Hello, I'm Evgeniy.

I am an artist from Moscow but recently I moved to Barcelona. I graduated from Moscow Padagogical University, Fine Arts & Graphic Department and have practiced both fine arts and teaching ever since, simultaneously more than 20 years.

As teacher I have always aimed at creating an integral system, a consistent range of methods that would allow me to effectively teach drawing and painting to any person regardless of skills. These methods come as the result of experience; they are tested in practice and proven to give fast results. As well, I have a vast experience in creating specific short-term courses, not to mention fine art workshops, etc.

 In Barcelona I organise sketching workshops for tourists. We are sketching the architecture landmark... See full profile

This glass we will help you toe master technique off very quick, efficient figure sketches. A friend of my fishing designer asked me once toe help her this technique off course she could find on the Internet a lot off. We use teaching to draw Caracas. Yuzhin then hit me like in a fish in college. But it wasn't what she needed. Question was not about fashion illustration. She wanted to be able to draw the Greek sketches for herself. Why?

In order to teach our hand toe keep proportions, you be using proportions and more or less close to really figure. We don't use the beautiful style off 10 head Evan, gated fish and figure. And because Vidro working sketches for ourselves, we need more realistic picture and I'll show you have to draw it a few lines. Only divide please, for our figure in three equal parts before isn't the lines this is it right? And when a preferred video right before isn't a went in to house, it is level off. Shoulders distance from the shoulder line. Tow rope line is equal toe off our framework, the mark with with two vertical lines. This marks the middle off our friend with vertical line distance from their shoulder line to the top line video in to house and in upper half the put circle brain case off skull and from bottom be up to it. Ah Lang, a Floater Joe line of shoulders. We do a little bit shorter, and from its sides, the drone reversed arc off, just gauge to the bottom side over up Erfurt. When Medio 30 debate before, isn't the land in two cows and put circle in the upper square, and now we throw out our counter off legs with long, smooth curves from left and the right side of a circle to the bottom line. They are slightly bend it inside in upper part off lower short. This Ben's mark from bottom set off circle the draw in 1/4 off Lex with long, smooth curves to the bottom land. They go around outer knee bends, repeating them, and underneath Ah, they are forming. Another band directed outside this drove neck is health off, head in beef with two curves, the draw inside of the neck. They've shoulder land. Now it's time to dro outer counter over arms.

Now we will be trying back for you off first engine female figure. This time we will be using more simple framework developed sidelines again. The the right place for height off our figure in three equal parts. The of course in the lines. The vertical land in upper part, the mark middle over figure and then in the middle off upper shirt visual. Or isn't the line off shoulder Lil Upper cough. We divide with another course in tow line to mark place for skull, part and neck part. Now we drove shirt off skull brain case and the mark with off shoulders equal toe distance from shoulder level to the top. It is the same us to diameters off skull circle van from sites off shoulder line, vitro reversed Arkoff chest cage to the bottom side. Off up. Erfurt, Middle third. The divide before isn't a line in to house and put circle in tow. Upper part. And now we've long, smooth cars from left and right side of a circle, the dro outer counter off legs to the bottom line. We are slightly been that insight on any level in upper part off lower furred from bottom side of a circle vitro inner contours over legs with long, smooth curves.

In next video, I'll give you some information about proportions off body parts. See you soon. Bye bye way. 4. Proportions and details: Okay, let's take a closer look at proportions or for buddy and some off its parts. It will be a convenient to choose a measure union to use it in our counting first divided place for right off our figure in three equal parts before Isn't the Lions 3/3? In my opinion, it is too big. But then we divided upper shirt on shoulder level in two house I proposed toe take this size Assad measure unit because we used it many times in many places. Let's name these measure unit shoulders or s. Now let's make a list off one s sizes in our figure. First off course it is with off shoulders and head off head with neck. When it is head off, just gauge and length off upper arm one shoulders is left off forearm and the enter off cheap circle is to one s length. Off legs is free s in fight. He didn't include fit in our framework to have opportunity it to modify them before changing all proportions. For example, the can draw shoes on her heels. Let's consider proportions off the neck. All the details will be health or quarter off one s in face scull. Brain case is health off, one is in diameter and we at 1/4 down for longer Joe. The neck is quarter in beef and quarter. In fact, in front of you from back side of the neck begins from the brain case and is 1/2 in cried ice are in middle quarter overhead. So our years with take a closer look at main proportions over hand hand is divided into house on the level off finger bases finger. Part offhand is divided into quarters on the level off middle joint. Sure, we take and go into the middle finger and based joint over found divides Poem in 2/4. Keep over from Goes little far were 1/4. Then if a friend is more of unhealthy for arm in stretched position, but normally hand is bend it so we can grow. It's left us 1/2 off for our and one final question, very is location off the knee. Bend Wonderlic to find it. The prolong inner line off cough upto fight line. We make it in once. Move, curve This land deal Gross inner bent under knee in two points. Top point shows us level off New Bend. Shadows under kneecaps are little over off this level, so now you can start practice fish in figure skating on your own after some time off training figure skates and you convert into pleasure and you'll be able to draw working sketches to depict your ideas quick and easy.
