Pencil Drawing Techniques | A Step by Step Drawing Tutorial If this is a new challenge for you, and you have little experience of portrait drawing then I have put together a few short pencil drawing techniques exercises for you to practice before you delve any further into your step by step drawing tutorial. These exercises are very basic, easy to follow and can be accomplished in a short period of time. No more than half hour. But each exercise is very important, and I suggest if you are serious about learning to draw portraits you not only complete each one, but that you practice each one over and over until you have found a way of drawing that you are comfortable with. Every pencil artist has their own way of doing things. We will all tell you contradicting methods of doing certain techniques, and different rules to abide by and what you should and shouldn’t be doing. The truth is though, there are no rules. A good pencil portrait or a good drawing is just that. So, What’s The First Lesson…? Be Yourself.

Art Instruction For Beginners - Online Art Lessons - How to Draw the Head From Any Angle The Basic Forms To draw the head from any angle you must first understand its basic structure. Look past all the distracting details and visualize the underlying forms. This ability to simplify can be applied to the features of the face, but when starting the drawing you could look even further. Ignore even the features and simplify to the most basic form of the head. I use a method taught by Andrew Loomis in his book, “Drawing the Head & Hands”. The head deconstructed into its basic forms, is a sphere as the cranium and a block as the jaw and cheek bones. A Sphere as the Cranium The sides of the head are flat, so we can slice off a piece from both sides of the ball. A Block as the Jaw and Cheek Bones Attach the shape of the jaw. Constructing From Any Angle Step 1 – Determine the angle of the ball The angle of the head is established at the very beginning of the drawing with the ball. X Axis - The up and down tilt is established by the angles of the horizontal and vertical lines in the oval.

Conductive Thread Overview Back in 2004 when I first became fascinated with e-textiles, there were virtually no resources to purchase conductive thread commercially. I was fortunate enough to be a graduate student at the time and convinced manufacturers out of my sheer curiosity to mail me samples of their spools of conductive thread. Now in 2009 there is a growing number of threads available commercially and if I have my way :-), soon your local craft and hobby stores will be carrying small affordable spools. I get a lot of questions regarding which conductive thread I prefer or use. Unfortunately there is no ONE ideal thread — it really depends on what you are trying to accomplish. That being said, I have diligently created a review of all the threads I have tinkered with to share with all of you. I hope this answers most of your questions. Everything you ever wanted to know about conductive thread! Silver Plated Nylon 117/12 x 2ply Thread Specs Resistance: ~ 75-85ohm/foot (when stretched/sewn) 1.2 -1.8K loose.
