Figure &Gesture Drawing Tool

How To Draw "How to Draw" is a collection of tutorials that will teach you everything from perspective basics to shading chrome. Never picked up a pencil before? Fear not! From simple line drawings to modern art and easy animations, we've got you covered. Instructables is the most popular project-sharing community on the Internet. Create a Pencil Drawing of a Face In this demo, I create a charcoal pencil drawing a face. If you haven't drawn a face successfully already, you may want to brush up on basics of drawing a human head before working through this page. I always say that knowing how the human head is structured sets you more at ease when drawing people. The woman I will be drawing is turning away from us toward her right side. As this is to be a pencil drawing of a face, I won't cover anything beyond her head and neck. Drawing a human face is challenging enough, and I do not want to overwhelm you with more than that. I start by 'framing' the head with four marks, at the top of the head, bottom of the chin, and on either side at the widest point. Finally, I declare my pencil drawing of the face done for the time being. If you practice often with a pencil, drawing a face should come easily. I hope you enjoy and learn from my pencil drawing of the face of this ballet dancer (yes, that is her true identity).

Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up..." Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures.
