In this course you will be able to learn how to draw realistic real-life objects with pencil only. As a bonus, I will teach how you can use grey markers to transform the pencil drawing into noir grayscale art.
This course is ideal for those who want to try new things or new to drawing with pencil. Or if you want to improve drawing skills in drawing real-life objects then this course may be ideal for you. The only material you need is a pencil.
This course is based on the video demonstrating how to draw in the paper, accompanied with handwritten notes on the video to help you understand and guide you through course structure. As I am profound hearing impaired I am unable to add audio to video therefore I have put handwritten notes and text to help you go through it. Hopefully with this course I can pass useful tip and knowledge to the fellow deaf and hard of hearing people as well as hearing people.
In this video you will be required to memorise the objects in the photo reference in terms of their location, shapes and features for a minute. When memorising, take note of the "vertex" points (the cross mark in the outer edge of object within safe frame) as demonstrated in this video. These "vertex" points helps you in guiding to place objects appropriately in right location and shapes when drawing in a paper.
In this lecture video, you will draw vertex points to form a "safe frame" to identify where to place fruits as in the correct location. Recall your memory of the photo reference, place vertex points in appropriate spots.
In this video you will draw the edges of fruits and basket within the vertex points, whilst recalling your photographic memory of the photo reference that you saw in Lecture 2 earlier
In this video you will learn how to give shades and colouring with pencil to the drawing.
In this video you will see the demonstration of filling in the shades and strokes to the fruits, except grapes, in the drawing
In this video you will learn how to draw and fill in the grapes to give realistic appearance in the drawing of grapes.
In this video you will be able to identify which markers to use.
In this video you will learn where and how to put shadows in the objects.
In this video you will see the demonstration of using Neutral Grey Marker to highlight parts in the drawing.
In this video you will see the demonstration of using Warm Grey Marker to highlight parts in the drawing.
