Chapter 2. Human anatomy and figure drawing Chapter 2. Human anatomy and figure drawing Before we start, I'd like to point out that knowledge of human anatomy is not a replacement for studying the body from real life or photos. We'll start with the largest bones and muscle masses. I would also like to apologize in advance for using the Latin names of the bones and muscles. (All illustrations in this chapter are referenced from photos that were taken from large distances, x-ray images, and [Gold], [Gray], and [Barc]) 2.1. Figure 2.1. The human body is usually measured in units of heads. Unless you are drawing an adult that is standing up straight, you can't use this diagram directly. Arms are 3½ heads long.When the arms are hanging down, the elbows line up with the bottom of the ribcage, and the fingertips reach halfway the upper leg.The navel is positioned roughly halfway between the nipples and the crotch, and halfway between the bottom of the ribcage and the top of the pelvis.

Creating cool textures with a pencil Sponsored Links To create cool textures on your cartoon characters, you don't need to use the latest graphic software (although it might help!). You can create nice textures using a simple pencil and lots of imagination! In this tutorial, I will show you 21 examples of textures created with a 2B pencil. The drawings were made using painter, but the results are pretty similar to what you could achieve using a real 2B pencil! The first texture is a simple one. Another simple texture sketched with horizontal and vertical lines. This texture is interesting. Drawn using small lines, this texture is perfect to illustrate fur. Another simple yet effective technique! Another variation using only lines. This example is using semi-circles (drawn with one simple line). This texture was sketched using lines drawn in a 45 degrees angle. Another simple texture created with only two lines. This one was done using only semi-circles. I really don't like this one. This one is very easy to create.

Artistic Anatomy Is learning to draw anatomy in a classroom more secure (since there is a teacher to check the work and possibly a book to study from) in practicing artistic anatomy drawing, or should artists focus on just practicing from images on websites/blogs like this tumblr? Asketh - pjmx24 Depending on the size of your class and where you are, your teacher can be a great guide to help you and show you what areas you need to focus on more to improve and give you good material to work from! If your class size is too big (ideally a class of no more than 15 is optimal for a teacher to give extensive feedback to all students) you might not get enough feedback to really improve as much as possible to your full potential. Outside of class (or if you have no class) you should focus on drawing in a sketchbook dedicated for life drawing/anatomy. Hope that gives you some insight!

Drawing the Human Eye » OnlyPencil Drawing Tutorials We can all probably draw the human eye, we draw the oval shape with the iris and pupil. I consider that to be a basic sketch of the eye. Before you draw a realistic eye you must first study what it really is. I will post a closeup picture of an eye so you can see what it looks up close. Take a look at the pupil(the black area in the center), this area contracts in size when light hits it. Tools Used: 2h wood cased pencil2b 0.5 Mechanical PencilKneaded EraserColor BlenderSmooth Bristol Paper This is the final drawing of what we’ll be working on. Step 1 Well we will start by drawing the outline, this can be a fast sketch, but enough detail to show the shape. Step 2 Start by filling in the pupil using the 6b progresso pencil. Step 3 Take your 4b progresso pencil and put down some graphite on a separate piece of paper. Step 4 Using your mechanical pencil draw the lines that you see around the area that was shaded previously, try to make them quick and light. Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 Step 9 Step 10

Free Photorealistic Pencil Drawing Tutorial by Carlos Aleman Warning: May cause severe headaches! Consult a doctor before attempting. Requires moderate to strenuous concentration (Just kidding! —well, I suppose you can get a whopper of a headache if you over do it.) First, purchase a large sheet of watercolor paper, about 80 lb. weight. Purchase some cheap mechanical pencils, the kind that you can buy at the grocery store (see below). As you can see, I'm using 0.7 mm lead. Photorealism evolved from Pop Art in the 1960's. Okay, let's start: The human face is probably the most difficult subject to render accurately. Ideally, work from a very detailed, high resolution photograph with good contrast. The first stage is the hardest part of the drawing. With an HB (#2) pencil, very lightly scribble the forms that create the illusion of volume. Remember, this is not a classical drawing. Once you've made the drawing of the face, you've essentially completed the portrait. All right, this is a photorealism tutorial after all. Back to shape finding.
