D L Friedman :: Artist :: Fine Artwork :: Drawings and Paintings, Bird Drawings • ❃ • ❋ • ❁ • tanglebucket • ✿ • ✽ • ❀ •: For my fellow tangle junkies: some thoughts on collecting and organizing tangle patterns I'm a perfectionist. I didn't always know this about myself, or maybe I wasn't always one and I'm just settling into my own shoes a little as I get older. But "ehh.... good enough" is probably not something you'll hear me say. Because if I'm working on something I care about, and I know it's not the best I am capable of, I have to force myself to not redo every little thing and make it as good as I know it could be (and yes, I do realize that this occasionally makes me a little bit annoying). For example, I've attempted a few methods for collecting and organizing tangle patterns... index cards, flip cards, graph paper pads, Moleskine notebooks, different-sized journals, a small binder with page protectors, et cetera. First I had to let go of the idea that any journal I created would/could ever resemble Maria's... that just wasn't realistic for me. Here's how my lofty standards and I arrived at a solution I could run with. This beast of a craft punch came from Michael's. The bottom view.

Drawing Realistic Tiger With Pencil-Eyes » OnlyPencil Drawing Tutorials The eyes are the most important part of any pencil drawing. I believe its the part that you must dedicate the most time to. Without the eyes there is no life in the drawing. The secret to making realistic eyes are the subtle details that most us don’t see. Before i start the eyes on a drawing, i look at many reference photos to understand what i will drawing. Lets look at the image above to get understand what we will be drawing.

Step 2 Now take your 2b mechanical pencil and outline the eye.The area outside this will be all black because of the shadows being cast from the area above. In this area i used the needle because the hairs are finer and will suggest single hairs. Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Take your paint brush and cover the area around the pupil. Step 6

Janie Gildow Les crayons de couleur de Patrick Rogelet Introduction Le crayon de couleur : dessin ou peinture ? Si je devais le comparer à un instrument de musique, ce serait le piano. Le problème, et pour continuer dans cette image du piano, c’est que pour le crayon de couleur, on en est resté à la main droite en ignorant la gauche. Le système des hachures est une espèce de trompe l’œil car il n’y a pas véritablement mélange des couleurs au niveau de la matière. À ce niveau le mélange de la matière est comparable à celui d’une peinture à l’huile, à la différence que l’action se produit directement sur l’œuvre et non pas au préalable sur une palette. Pour l’instant, dans le monde des peintres aux crayons de couleur, je me sens bien seul. Les conseils et explications techniques que je donne ici sont basées sur cette technique particulière, autodidacte, issue de quinze années d’expérience, d’une recherche permanente de maîtrise, de perfection et de progrès.

a little lime: poppies & leaflet pattern The kids and I made it through our volunteer event last week - cooking for 45 people! Fortunately we had 2 helpers (including my son) which made a huge difference and kept my stress levels just under the highly dangerous zone! We got rave reviews, and all I can say is I'm glad it's over and I can concentrate on drawing again :) This weekend I finally got around to drawing out a pattern inspired by what looks like a wood carving (though it looks to perfect to be hand-carved). I've had it pinterest board for a while - the actual pin is a dead link, but you can see the image from my board here - I love it, such beautiful flow from one section to the next - I couldn't get quite that look, maybe with more practice :) I have dubbed the pattern "leaflet". More poppies! The pattern step out: I found it a really forgiving pattern - it didn't matter if my curves lined up exactly at the start, or if some of my s strokes were a bit off (my concentration has a tendancy to wander!) hx

50 Ultra Realistic Male Portrait Drawings Technology brings to surface more and more talented artists who create astonishing digitally manipulated images on every possible theme and illustrating everything that you could possibly imagine and even more.

This is our third post from the “pencil drawings” series posts and it shows 50 brilliant portraits of men created by the technique of traditional drawing, without any digital manipulation. Some of them can easily trick the eye into believing that they are real photos of real people, that’s how beautiful and expressive they are. True masterpieces.

Bev Lewis Croquis d’étude Désireuse de me lancer à nouveau dans une petite nature morte, j’ai réalisé ce croquis d’étude pour plusieurs raisons. La première était de dessiner correctement mon sujet d’après nature, la seconde d’étudier les ombres et la lumière que l’on voit sur l’objet, la troisième de me rendre compte de ce que pourrait être le tableau final. Nature blanche L’ arrière plan est foncé car je voulais le peindre ainsi et cela me permet de me rendre compte de l’effet. Finalement j’ai modifié les éléments de ma peinture, je vous en parlerai plus tard. ;) Je l’ai baptisée nature blanche car les objets sont blancs mais en réalité ils comportent une superbe variété de gris et de blanc. Encore un sujet à s’arracher les cheveux ! Mine de plomb 2B sur carnet de croquis. Dimensions 13 x 18 cm Like this: J'aime chargement…

Munchin - alternate steps Munchin, and then some. Munchin is one of Zentangle's official tangles, designed by Molly Hollibaugh, Maria's daughter. Munchin is based on triangles and has a nice, slightly mottled look when finished. You can see Molly's instructions, which begins with some random dots, in the Zentangle newsletter here. I had forgotten that method until I taught Munchin to a class that included two CZTs, who reminded me about it! Because any tangle is usually drawn in an odd-shaped space provided by the string, I had come up with another way to draw Munchin, which I have been teaching. Ultimately, in order to draw Munchin, you need your space sub-divided into triangles. Here are some odd shapes you might have, courtesy of your string: three, four, and five sides. If the shape is triangular you're good to go. Here's one possible configuration of triangles for each of these shapes: And here are those same shapes complete with Munchin. But what if some of the lines are curved?
