1. Introduction: In this course, I'm going to give you many tips to draw rocks metal effects and many matters. You will see that according to the different object we're going to draw, you will have to use different techniques to show the texture of every object. And we're going to see how to draw rocks, a bottle, metal, wings, and a couple of other things like clothes or wood on the tree. All these different objects have to be worked out with different techniques with the brush. To follow this course, you can use any kind of tablets or iPad or any softwares to draw. Me, too present this course, I'm using clips to your paint and a very simple brush, which is just this one where I'm going to draw. Like this. You will see that you can find this kind of tool in every creative software using graphic tablet. So I remind the different things we're going to see a rock, a wing, metal, would and also a mirror. These different kind of items have to be worked with very specific techniques. Okay. 2. Drawing the rock: The first thing we're going to see is how to draw a rock. I will create a new file, and I will start to draw the outlines of the object. A rock is something that is not straight on the different outlines. I can select a rock that is really natural. I can draw something like this, and I can draw another line here. Then I can fill some parts of this rock in black. Sake this, using the selection tool, selecting this, and filling with the black. Then another one. I'm always making sure that there's still some white space remaining. And we have now two black things here. Now the next step is to add some hatchings and then I have some black lines here and another etching. And we add the etching where we have the shadow of this rock. I can change the orientation of the lines. And also work a gradient with this different hatching technique. I can draw another line here. You see if I out, we have the main part of the rock that is touched by the light here and the one that is down where the rock is on the floor. So sometimes I'm doing this. I'm feeling something in black, and then I'm doing hatchings like this and sometime I'm also crossing the hatching. Like this. I'm trying to draw also some cracks randomly on the surface of the rock. And I can also do it with the eraser and adding some cracks. Crossing the black area. Okay. Now, let's go back on the black brush, and I can add a kind of big crack here. And there, to show that this is a part of the rock that is missing, I'm drawing stuff like that. Inside parts again inside like this. Then on the surface, we can be lighter on the cracks and on the details. But you don't have to leave one space with too much white. You don't have to overwhelm. You don't have to overrel the rock with too much details of the white it will be really the mess. Lo, so we have a rock. If you want to complete that illustration, you can also have a shadow Okay. The sh is supposed to touch the object like this and to respect the overall form of it. Now, I will create a new layer and I will apply some gray values. Sing the gray, I remain on this brush and I can increase the side of brush. For instance, filling that Okay. Maybe I can smooth with this tool, the gray and come back with a darker gray. Using this o on this part of the rock. Okay, so we have the rock draw with a very simple technique. Now let's go to the next video. We're going to draw another object, which is the wing. 3. Drawing a wing: To draw a wing, we have to think about the fact that there is some feather all around the wing, if it is the wing of an angel or something like this. So I'm going to work in the first place, the sketch of the object. I'm going to have something like this. Maybe something like this. Okay. For instance, then we can imagine the head of the angel, the back, the shoulder, and so on. But let's focus on let's be focused on the wing. I will create a new layer. This one, I will decrease the opacity to have more transparency, and I will focus on the second layer where I will draw with black color all the outlines with a small brush. Okay. As this is full of feather, we have to be really smart in working on the in drawing of these details, it has to be very light. Then I will draw details inside so the outline can be really clear, especially where we have the bone here. Then we can add some details. I will hide the sketch and now back on this So you can see that we always draw the feather going in that direction. And this is probably more difficult because we have to suggest the position of the feather drawing too much of them. Okay. And we can use some hatchings to suggest the shadow of the feathers that are below. Man, I raised Okay. Line. We have something like this. Of course, I can create a new layer, which I'm playing multiply mode to get some transparency. This time, I will probably not use a very strong gray color with this brush. I will use can I say that is having more transparency like this one, which is giving you something like this instead of a very strong color, and you will see why I'm playing the gray just where we have some feather stuff, and then I can smooth the color. Like this, when she's giving this wing a very light aspect. Even if I have to come back with some details here and there, And here is your wing. 4. Drawing the tree: Now, let's try to draw some wood. I'm going to draw a piece of wood here. Let's be too fake natural is not having a very straight form, so I'm doing kind of tree. We have the grass. I'm suggesting the grass on the floor. Okay. And then I'm going to draw the detail of the tree so I can I can start drawing something very dark here. And then smoothing and continuing this line, but to the detail of the train. Okay. So if you rock the tree like this, you just draw lines that are following the form of the tree. But this is the wood aspect that is very important to work out. And I'm using brush to draw all the details. Okay. If this is not enough, you can add some little etchings in the middle. As we have some black things, we can increase the shadow effect. We have a very dark tree. Okay. Now let's create a new layer in multiply mode. I would just draw a very rough gray going through the wood, and then smoothing. These part, we have a part of the tree touching the light and the other one in the shadow and completing with some gray lines crossing the same way. The wood here. And we have our tray created here. Okay. 5. Drawing an armor: Now, let's try to draw some metal. I will draw armor part, which is going to be the shoulder of an armor, medieval armor. We have this first part and this first part. We have one line here and there. We can imagine the arms going like this, like this and the hands going straight here, but it's not the problem here. I'm going to create some shiny effect only with black and white. By the way, right. I would add a small line here, and I will be very smooth in using of the S here, filling with black. Okay. Then I will do some small lines here. Another one here. And then another lines flowing from up to down. Another wave here. And some other small wave nearby. Okay. And you have your metal effect. Very simple. You keep flowing like this from up to down and you can create such effect. Of course, for the clove, that is composed composing the arm, you can do a solution here filling with black, and you have your armor. This is clove and this is armor. Now, let's add some gray values, creating a new layer, multi play mode, using a smooth gray color and filling only one side and smoothing color. And using even more gray color. On one side and smoothing in. We can also add a white point in the middle. And you have your armor. Maybe you can also add a very dark gray just here and here. And this time, we are done. So if you respect the steps, you will get your armor very easily done. Okay. 6. Drawing a mirror: The last example will be a part of a mirror. You will see that in the first place, I'm going to draw a mirror with very straight edges. Broken mirror. Then I have to draw the edges and the thickness of the mirror. By the way, I have to maybe change this one. Okay. Then to make this mirror effect real, I'm going to add some. And then I'm drawing very straight lines. On the corners just following the same direction. But if we have a crack, we can also small cracks. Okay. Okay. Maybe a small crack in middle. Then the main part, this time is going to be in the gray values. I would take this tool and I'm going to add some lines crossing in the same direction and smoothing like this. And maybe I can come back on a few details here. And we have a mirror. So all these techniques we have seen in this course can be applied to many objects. When you want to draw an object, you probably have to focus on how to draw this object with these techniques. I just give you a couple of examples, but it could be applied to any kind of object, no matter if it's a battle, some water, stones, rocks, fruits, houses, no matter what, clouds, and so on.
