Learning to See - A Tutorial

Learning to See - A Tutorial | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

“Have you ever seen someone sketch out a pose and think, “Wow, they are so fast and accurate!” People who pick this up naturally or artists who are well-trained are able to discern ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ so quickly that it becomes almost automatic – they no longer have to consciously think about it while they draw. However, for most artists it is essential to learn the basics to improve their skills. Learning how to see in new ways can dramatically improve your art.”

Jerome Okutho's insight:

The trick to drawing the human form is learning how to see the subject as it is and not how you want to see it. Essentially, you have to change the way you look at what's in front of you in order to draw the human form correctly. While this may sound challenging, this detailed tutorial shows you how can use your eyes to improve your drawings.

Mikael Lugnegard Traditional Sketch rendering

Mikael Lugnegard Traditional Sketch rendering | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it
In my opinion, to communicate ideas, you need to master a few different skills. One of these is to draw, with pen and paper. This is a fundamental skill you need to master. REALLY. Consider one of the following scenarios. You're in a client meeting, and you need to sketch down an idea to show your client what you're thinking. The sketch you looks like something a 5-year old has done. This doesn't evoke trust, the most important thing in a business relationship. You get my point. Imagine how satisfying is would be to nail that fast and dynamic sketch in front of your client with only a ballpoint pen!!!
Jerome Okutho's insight:

One of the most useful skills you can have as an artist is the ability to sketch drawings quickly. Sometimes you may need to sketch from your imagination while other times may require you to sketch an object in front of you. Whatever the scenario, knowing how to sketch will help you become a better artist. This tutorial gives you a few techniques you can use to improve your traditional sketch skills.
