Use negative space to draw better hands With the right drawing techniques and tricks, even a seemingly complex subject such as a hand can be simplified. Using shapes and working with negative and positive space will create a foundation for your drawing, to help you draw better hands. The exercise outlined in the following steps is one that you can try at home, drawing from your own hand (using a mirror) or a friend's. It could just as easily be applied to a chair, a plant or anything that presents trapped shapes and negative spaces. It will help you to exercise one of the most helpful skills you can develop when making observational drawings – objectivity. Your preconceptions of what you think a hand, chair or plant look like can stop you looking clearly at the subject in front of you.
Low Poly Illustration, What's the Secret? Low Poly was a technique originally used for making 3D models and scenes for videogames, due to its render speed, which was achieved thanks to low polygonal resolution. We recently published a post about the “Geo a Day” project, which uses this precise technique. To produce this kind of illustration, you can use basically any 3D software, but Cinema 4D is widely used because of its versatility and simplicity when it comes to modelling, lighting and visual effects, whereas other tools such as Maya or 3ds Max present a much steeper learning curve. drawthrough BLOG - DRAWTHROUGH: the personal and professional work of Scott Robertso Welcome DVDs Bio Contact drawthrough BLOG

How to draw an ear – 5 easy steps When drawing portraits, people usually do not put too much effort into creating a likeness with their subject’s ears because we usually recognize people by their faces or other unique features that stand-out. Even though they are not given a lot of attention, it is still good practice to learn how to draw an ear and understand it’s structure. Drawing ears may seem difficult and complex because they contain many bumps, valleys and folds. Learning how to draw an ear is is a lot easier when you learn to simplify it’s complex shapes like the example image below. Materials I used for this simple ear drawing tutorial: – Blending stump – HB Derwent pencil – 4B Derwent pencil – Canson Sketch paper (not the usual Canson Bristol Paper which is my ultimate favorite.
