5 Tips for Better Drawings

Hello everyone Will Terrell now. Today I’ve got five tips-off for you on how to improve your line drawing. These are all tips-off that helped me tremendously with improving my indication cultivate. Hopefully it will do the same for you. so let’s get started it’s really important sketch somewhat when you’re doing your initial lay-in for a describe. the same reasons for this is if you go to obscurity its either gonna smudge the sheet or even when you are contribute Ink indication cultivate uh … you’re not will now be able kill the line drawing underneath it. this is something i find often uh … beginning craftsmen do, is they either … return actually, actually dark … or actually, actually timidly. I’ll even get “there’s going” even lighter than this typically when i’m doing my initial lay-in uh … but for the purposes of this video I’m going a little bit darker than ordinary so it shows up on the camera. if you do end up going too dark with your initial lay-in it’s okay just go ahead and take a required eraser and knock back the feeling a little bit I’ll even do that when i’m doing like a pencil sketch I’ll do the initial lay-in sketch it out make it actually messy but keep it ignite and i’ll consume my manipulated eraser to slap it back approximately to where you scarcely see it on the sheet and i’ll redraw the part stuff a little bit darker uh…

And i’ll retain doing until i find the kind perfectly before i do the final Inked version. my next tip-off is to become more self-confident with your line drawing that’s something that’s going to go years and years of rehearsal to do but you’ll notice I’m sketch out the rows like this I’ve noticed this is something that most inaugurate craftsmen do, their .. … rows will be indecisive … they’ll be kind of jaggedy because they’re trying to sketch it through as they get but what you crave is a bold smooth indication like this uh … and that’s like I answered, something you have to practice with over and over uh … and you’ll notice I’m kind of whipping the line as it comes out of the arc. and I’ll likewise follow over the line that i just describe. and that builds up the line so it all looks like it belongs together going back to our sample I’m going to use this uh … sharpie pencil which has a sort of uh … narrow indication extent to it. and it’s sort of like the micron pigma I encounter a lot of beginning craftsmen use. and manga craftsmen uh…

and it’s kind of a rigid indication “that’s exactly what i” ordinarily see in line cultivate is genuinely jagged rows like this uh … and that’s … you don’t want that it’s not really a natural indication that you see in nature I imply it can be used as a texture like uh … it looks like a textile or something but not a skin feeling most surface is smooth and so you crave the line that represents it to be smooth likewise same stuff with the mane you want that indication to be somewhat smooth more the only meter you’d use a jagged texture is on something like a like a jagged canvas. or t-shirt or you know something that’s been ripped uh…

That’s when a texture like that will come in handy one rationale most craftsmen have trouble with doing self-confident rows is because they’re proceeding uh … against their own fortes you need  to draw towards yourself to have self-control over your indication cultivate you could see when i draw in the opposite attitude my rows kind of splay and they get … they’re not awfully inhibited, and you can see how they discriminate now And like with every ruler this isn’t a hundred percent of the time uh … this is my rule of thumb i’d whenever i’m having trouble with indication cultivate I try and go back to drawing towards myself So practice filling up pages with doing parallllell .. llellll LELALlLAlllell parallel rows i’m learning to talk so in order to follow ruler multitude three you’ll need to turn the sheet in order to get your most self-confident rows every craftsman is essentially one good indication stroke uh…

And you need to turn the sheet in order to maximize the use of that indication stroke so i’m constantly returning the sheet in fiat to depict towards myself so i can get that self-confident indication the other benefit to it is you can return the sheet upside down and realize that your appearance gapes jacked up for example one of your eyes can be considerably lower than the other and it’s really weird from this angle and returning the sheet upside down will assist you realize how bad it gapes and hopefully let you do something about it come along … return the sheet upside down so you can see how bad it gapes so anyways indication cultivate be confident draw towards yourself and spin the sheet these are things that are easy to forget and then you realize wow these tips-off are actually facilitate me represent my reaps appear a lot better i’m so glad that I listened to these tips-off so at this degree i ultimately return the sheet upside down and I realize how odd that one seeing gapes like its practice higher up than the other one and so i try and fudge the….

eye a little bit and the nose bridge and what ta ya gonna do … I suppose part of the problem was i’m spend more meter looking at the camera than actually at the proceeding so every things a little bit … iffy…. sketchy if you will on this proceeding this is why don’t do tutorial videos very often I get too self self-conscious about the whole stuff . … start take farces about my reaps anyways So there “there’s going”! that’s how you spin the sheet and now you know Line variation is my favorite part about Inking. i was only love making rows get from dense to reduce and you can do that with a pen like this sharpie pencil or with uh … micron pigment pencil but it’s a lot more cultivate you were supposed to “I’ll be going back” over the line several times and build it up make it get from dense to reduce in certain parts uh … it can be kind of a headache you can see how my indication hinders splaying at the end uh…

Into the arc each time i do it so I have to go back over it and secure it and secure it and secure it uh … i’d much wish consuming an actual cover pencil in order to get the line deviation so sometimes I’ll do the initial lay-in with a thin pencil like the sharpie or uh … micron pigma but i almost always go back over it with a cover pen like this is a japanese import zebra cover pencil but you can find other the different types of cover pens uh … and I like it because it departs from dense to thin with hardly any work to it uh … and that’s juicy indication deviation right there i love how it gapes and you can you can even do the same stuff where you build-up you go over the same indication and give it or you are able to make it a thicker…

Thick to reduce uh … by just going over it and building up the dense to thin on it … husband I’m just NO GOOD at this talk stuff today … so “re going back to the” latitude rows that i was testifying you how to do on proceeding towards you can do the same stuff with a cover pencil you get this nice structure with it and uh .. “that’s the beginning” of cross-hatching you can see how diverse the pressure now where I get thicker in the middle of the movement versus thicker at the beginning the movement uh … contributes .. it represents it a different type of structure and overlaying these parallel movement decorations is what represents cross-hatching appear the practice it does and how you get that peculiar structure to it and time running it up where you go at a different inclination with each parallel movement pattern uh … and running your pres and so on and so on until you get this structure running. i really like the practice the cross-hatching gapes Its pretty much my favorite thing to do sometimes I’ll time fill up whole pages of time crotch-hatching … wait. cross-hatching! I suppose I need a nap.

All right, back to our sample so you can take the line drawing that we did before and contribute a little bit of indication variation to it time by building up that indication again and following in the form of the appearance uh … and this is something that you like again you’ll have to experiment experimentation with for years and years and years uh … but basically supplementing indication deviation like on the neck now represents it look like that the dense part of her cheek is where it’s assigning a shadow underneath it and the thin part is where the light-footed satisfies the surface and knowing where you do this is only something you’re gonna have to practice with uh … years and years and years but then “re going back to the” cover pencil you can do these really nice thick to reduce apoplexies without having to build up without all the headaches its just like instantaneous and you get delightful dense juicy rows uh … actually thin lines and yeah i like it so that’s pretty much it on my tips-off uh … for this video i will try and do more of these and hopefully i can take them more seriously down the road i hope they were..This was somewhat useful to you one other thing to keep in mind when i got firstly started discovering how to ink uh … i really really was frightful at it and actually had a a comic book publisher tell me they wanted to draw a work for them but as long as i never touched an ink pen ever again they didn’t actually say it in those words it was not quite that harsh but it was pretty harsh so in order to redress that i decided I was going to devastate every sketchbook i ever had and so I went back through .. it was probably ten or fifteen sketch records and “they’re all” time pencil representations and I decided to ink every single one of those reaps uh … and … the first you know five or six sketch records they were pretty bad uh … it was actually devastating reaps but by the time I got past that degree the ink reaps were actually gaping better than the pencil drawings were uh…

and I started becoming more self-confident in my job so with anything it just takes time and rehearsal and time being patient with yourself and trying to have fun with it and that’s what this is all about Not taking it too seriously time having fun anyways thanks for watching this video i hope it was helpful and uh … thank you for agreeing to the direct and liking the videos and sharing it with your friends. retain smiling.
