Hand drawing tutorials / demos « Portrait Artist from Westchester, NY – Anne Bobroff-Hajal Hand tutorial #7 drawing In earlier lessons (examples here, and here), we’ve used the “negative spaces” around fingers to help our brains make the transition to right-mode seeing. But in this tutorial’s hand position, there’s little negative space between fingers because they’re all snuggled up to each other.

Every Day A Drawing Posted by Davy on Feb 6, 2013 in Articles, Contour Drawing, Daily Drawing, Life Drawing, Marker, Misc, Pencil, Quotes, Theory | 0 comments I spent a long time today working through Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. I would have continued further but the next exercise was advertised as needing at least an hour so I will have to save that for tomorrow. The book first introduced the concept of “Blind Contour Drawing”. This is where you place your pencil on your paper and without looking at your hand simply follow along very carefully, milimetre-by-milimetre, with whatever you’re looking at.

How to Draw a Classic Hand using a Graphics Tablet - Go Media™ · Creativity at Work Introduction Hey! I’m Whyball and I’m a graphic designer. Since I was a little kid, I loved to draw; at first I started drawing all kind of things that I saw in the books – usually animals were my favorite subjects! After a while I started to create original drawings. A few years ago I discovered the digital drawing and was excited to see the simplicity of using the graphic tablet. Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” video: More drowning than denim Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” video: More drowning than denim Date: April 17, 2012 | Posted By: Stacey Cleverly unclear cover art: Tender touch or simulated strangulation? Diego Fazo creates photo-realistic drawings with charcoal pencil At just 22 years old, Italian artist Diego Fazo has developed the skill to create photo-realistic drawings using a simple charcoal pencil. His latest creation, pictured below, has drawn hundreds of positive comments on his Deviant Art profile. Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest. And looking at his-mind-blowing masterpiece, can you really blame people for questioning it’s hand-drawn? Like other talented artists who started their careers on Deviant Art, Diego is a self-taught pencil master whose technique matured with the passing of the years.

Photorealistic Charcoal Drawings of Epic Waves Though artwork created in Photoshop or Illustrator can be nothing short of extraordinary, sometimes it's more impressive to see pieces created by more traditional means. Brooklyn-based artist Robert Longo made these incredible drawings of massive, thundering waves using just charcoal (on mounted paper). Called Monsters, the drawings almost look like black and white photos of that crescendo moment before an epic wave breaks. I like what Metro Picture Gallery said about them: "Devoid of people, location and color, the looming crests of exploding power are notably singular portraits of emotional and physical forces. The near abstraction of the waves is strikingly dissimilar to the more familiar representations of the sea as poetic and romantic, or in terms of man against nature."
