Drawing Pencil Sketches
Newsletter May 2012
Good Morning Artists
Apologies for this newsletter arriving late - my HD crashed and I lost an awful lot of data. Much of the data was corrupted and therefore lost forever—and so I will not be able to send you any of the free e-books on drawing for about a week.
I asked a friend (who is a cartoon artist) to write a page on how to draw cartoon characters. Karen wrote a page which I thought was quite entertaining. Here is the page: draw Cartoon Characters Will you please read it and let me know what you think of it? You can leave a feedback here.
Many artists submit drawings here which could have been really great if s/he had observed perspective more carefully. If your aim is to be a good artist , then learning all about perspective is not difficult.
Like so many things, mastery is gained with practice by being willing to go from not-know to knowing about it.
There are limitations of viewing a landscape or chair or anything from a single point of view. Looking around you in your surroundings or outside somewhere, you will notice there are numerous vanishing points.
Once you have mastered single viewpoints then try the two-point perspective. Once you are familiar with multiple perspective points your drawings will take on a new level. You will observe aerial perspective, digital perspective, portraiture and figure drawing—and anything you can see.
PS: Have fun drawing, I'd love to see your work showcased here. Please do write if you have any comments or questions and upload your drawings.
I am still getting too many incorrect email addresses and they all bounce back. Please check your email address for typos...too many bounce and you won't get an answer from me or your free e-book.
