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.

I Want To Draw: Simple Exercises For the Start | Vectortuts+

I Want To Draw: Simple Exercises For the Start | Vectortuts+ | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

"Do you struggle with a simple circle from the first step of every tutorial? Do your straight lines keep bending no matter how hard you try? Do you seem to be unable to draw two points with a given distance between? Do your pictures look wrong even after repeating carefully every single step from a detailed tutorial?


These problems may come from lack of basic skills that are ignored when learning how to draw. In fact, these skills are obvious for someone who’s been drawing a lot, but they also can be easily forgotten after a few years without a pencil in your hand. So, are you ready to catch up?"

Jerome Okutho's insight:

Anyone who's tried using Adobe Illustrator knows that there is a very steep learning curve involved. Learning how to draw objects from scratch can be especially challenging if you've never used the tools before. This tutorial shows you how to master the basics of drawing using simple exercises any beginner can follow.
