When starting out

A quick note to say when you are starting out drawing it is extremely important to draw the exercises I have posted in previous posts. The squares and then drawing the line without the box square drawn. The value scales are a necessary excercise; this will teach you what graphite range you can use for each pencil. Also work on drawing a sphere and shadow with values. I can’t stress this enough.

Once you have that under control, start to sketch in charcoal on newsprint the figure. I understand not everyone has access to a life drawing class. Check your area’s art council. Start to draw people on lunch break, your home and friends. I will write more instructions later today. Don’t say you don’t need these exercises because you are wrong.

  1. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Appreciate it
