I'm still experimenting even as we speak (1 June 1999), and as I figure more things out, they will be reflected on this page. Quite a lot of this material is an attempt at reconciling conflicting reports on how to cut a quill. People are of many opinions, but the material's the real test. This is a page about how to cut feathers into useful quill pens. I won't say that if you follow The Instructions Here that you'll get a working pen to your liking, half the battle is really knowing what you like. I'm going to cover equipment, prep, cutting, and then re-cutting of nibs in this page. Equipment This is the stuff I use to cut quills. 1. First, a bit about feathers. I buy my feathers from local Hobby Lobby, Ben Franklin, or even Michael's; and whatever hobby shop that's filled with odd baskets, dried flowers, leather lacing, candles galore, and beads is the place to hunt down feathers. 2. Above the crushed tube is my knife. 3. Preparation 1. 2.

How to Draw: The Beginner's Guide The Beginner's Guide Preface Here's the truth: drawing is hard. It's perfectly normal to struggle with it. And the internet is full of conflicting advice on the matter, making it even more confusing. I wrote this guide to help those who really want to learn how to draw. I wrote this to convince you that it's that it's never too late to learn how to draw. How to Use This Guide You could just watch all the videos and then leave, picking up a few tips and improving marginally... but maybe you're tired of not making progress. To get the most out of this guide, you should read it from start to finish, take notes, and apply what you're learning as you go. Finally, you can bookmark this guide and come back to it for reference as needed. What This Guide Contains There are 5 sections with the following goals: 1. Before we begin, you need to know why much of the drawing advice out there doesn't seem to help. 2. Now let's break drawing down to understand it better. Go to Worksheet #1 3. Go to Worksheet #2
Akt- und figürliches Zeichnen Figure Drawing Pose Search A Pose is usually a collection of photos of a model in one position. For example, a nude model standing in the contrapposto position or the T-pose will be photographed from 24 different angles (once every 15-degrees as the model is rotated). Those 24 art reference photos are collected into one "Pose." When the project first started, we imagined our customers as sculptors. They would be looking for anatomy reference photos and also traditional male and female nude artist's model photos but they would need to see all around the figure to create a complete sculpture. That's why we do the multiple angles. It turned out people who draw, sketch, paint, design characters, draw comics, etc., all found that the multiple angles gave them a large amount of freedom to choose which view they like best.
Quickposes: pose library for figure & gesture drawing practice Yo quickposers I bring to you a new tutorial from none other than Danny Cruz ! This amazing artist has a cool style and I asked him to make a tutorial that shows you how to take your gesture drawings to the next level, so here it is ! Step 1: I start off my gesture with a rough line showing the main action of the figure, from the head throught the torso down the legs. Step 2: At this stage, I'm just working out the forms (still not being concerned with anatomy) and just trying to get it to look like the figure. Step 3: You can kind of make out construction lines and a bit of anatomy at this stage. Step 4: I change my grip to my usual drawing grip and start refining the figure and try to fully realize the anatomy. Step 5: To illustrate my previous point I add a few fantasy elements to the figure. Step 6: I add a lightsource and do a bit of rendering. Well that's it !
