Les expressions du visage Avant de commencer ce tutoriel, je vous conseille d'apprendre à dessiner les têtes et les visages (proportions, architecture, rotations...). Et si vous avez d'autres questions, n'hésitez pas à les poser par mail ! Cher internaute, adepte des tchats ou de forums, j'ai une bonne nouvelle : vous savez déjà dessiner les expressions du visage ! Si vous pensez que non, voici probablement ce que vous dessineriez : Non seulement le personnage est inexpressif, mais en plus, utiliser des émoticons dans des bulles de BD (qui est du texte "oral" puisque le personnage le prononce) est à éviter absolument ! Pourtant, avec ce premier personnage, vous avez visuellement exprimé des émotions. Alors, pourquoi ne pas dessiner ces émoticons directement sur la tête de votre personnage ? Et c'est gagné ! Donc, quand vous avez un doute sur la manière d'exprimer un sentiment, cherchez lequel de ces émoticons vous utiliseriez. Découvrons un peu plus en profondeur les émoticons ! Les coins La largeur À vous de jouer !

Emil Nolde Biography - Infos - Art Market Eye Drawing tutorial - How to draw Realistic Eyes index>drawing tutorials >eye drawing tutorial I made this tutorial to show the different steps that I take in drawing a realistic eye. There are many different methods though, so don't rely purely on this one. :) I buy all of my supplies from Blick Art Materials . Step 1 For this tutorial I chose to draw one of the most trained eyes in drawing, Armin Mersmann's. Step 2 I began darkening a couple of the darkest places in the drawing. Step 3 I started shading the eyelid and surrounding areas. Step 4 I got out my blending stump and began blending the graphite I laid down in the previous step. Step 5 I continued laying down tone with my 3B pencil paying close attention to small details on my reference photo. Step 6 I began working on the iris of the eye on this step. Step 7 I was half-way done with the iris at this step. Step 8 The iris was done at this point and I came across a highlight in the eye. Step 9 I shaded around the highlights. Step 14 Almost done now.

Self Portrail Stencil I am soooo excited about this one. Please do try it, especially you journal artists. It is a lot more fun than you'd think to manipulate images of yourself. Although I make stencils a lot, it had never occurred to me to do a self-portrait until I read Randi Feuerhelm-Watts' brilliant book, Wide Open. If you don't have her book, go get it today. So many inspiring ideas! Materials you need: Clear photograph of yourself, preferably a self-portrait Photoshop, PE (Photoshop Elements), or other photo editing software. Making the Stencil The first thing you need to do is to select a good photograph. Once you find the right photograph, you need to simplify and turn it into b&w in Photoshop or PE. Next, change your image to black & white and simplify it a bit: Image/Adjustments/Threshold. Remember: Everything that is Black you will be cutting away. Finally, Save your document immediately! Cutting the Stencil This is the easy and not so easy part. Ta-da! Thanks.

Cat Artist Cat Art Prints Custom Pet Portraits Drawings For Sale How to Draw a Portrait of the Head The most important part of a drawing is the start, not the finish. This tutorial will focus on how to start a portrait drawing, using basic blocking-in techniques. When drawing a portrait from life, you don’t want to just jump-in and draw. I always walk around the model to get a better understanding of the model and plan out my composition. In addition, whenever I do a head study, or a portrait, I don’t start out by trying to capture a “likeness.” Here is my process for drawing portraits: 1. Mark the top of skull, not the hair, then locate the line of the chin, mark the back of the skull and two lines for the angles of the front of the skull. Look for the bone structure of the skull not the features of the face—that will come later. 2. Divide the head into thirds: one third is from the top of the head to the top of the eye socket; the second is from the top of the eye socket to the base of the nose; and the third is from the base of the nose to the bottom of the chin. 3. 4. 5.

How to Draw Hair, Part 1 Looking back at my tutorials on drawing the head, I realized that I covered individual features, but completely left out hair. This tutorial will is split into 3 parts: The Basics, Types of Hair, and a Step by Step drawing. I’ll start this first part of the series with common mistakes that I see all the time. Common Mistakes when Drawing Hair Forgetting about the volumes This is the most common mistake I see from newer students. Too Much Texture This one is similar to the first, but this can still happen even if one pays attention to the volumes. Impatience – Bad Design There are so many random little shapes in hair, that good design is a necessity. Sharp Outlines I’m referring the the outer edge between the hair and background and also the connection between hair and skin. Consider the Form Underneath the Hair Spherical Skull Most hair styles you will draw will be affected by the skull underneath. The groups of hair wrap around the form underneath and inherit the same light patterns. Shadow

Anatomical Information I think the anatomical shapes in the nose are really interesting. The Minor Planes It’s important to memorize the subtle plane changes in all the different part of the nose. Minor Planes of the Bridge The Glabella is shaped like a keystone. Minor Planes of the Ball The ball of the nose isn’t perfectly round, but has very distinct plane changes.
