How to Draw Caricatures: Head Shapes | Tom's MAD Blog!

How to Draw Caricatures: Head Shapes | Tom's MAD Blog! | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

"When I first started drawing live caricatures I felt that the eyes were the most important part of the face, and I put a lot of emphasis and focus on them. I still think the eyes are a crucial element, but over the years I’ve come to believe that the head shape is the most important part of a caricature.


I talk endlessly about seeing shapes within the features and the face, and the importance of drawing those shapes accurately to capture likeness and to create a convincing drawing. Again, it’s difficult to teach anyone to “see”… that ability is developed over time via practice and hard work. Still, there are a few techniques and tricks I have learned that can help artists to better see what is in front of them, and better interpret it in their drawing."

Jerome Okutho's insight:

Ever wondered how to draw caricatures? If so, this tutorial will tell you what you need to know about designing caricature characters starting from the head first. If you're thinking of becoming a caricature artist, this is a good place to start.

How to Draw a Butterfly - Design Your Own Pattern

How to Draw a Butterfly - Design Your Own Pattern | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

"Butterfly wings can be very different, small or big, wide or narrow, colorful or transparent, round or ragged. However, there are features common to all kinds of butterflies.


When it comes to the structure of the wings, it’s the same for all butterflies. Butterfly wings are basically triangular, with three margins that round their shape – costal, outer and inner one. The forewings have also an apex that makes them longer."

Drawing Perspective - How to Draw Perspective

Drawing Perspective - How to Draw Perspective | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

This lesson focuses on the subjects of perspective and vanishing points

The video shows a very quick sketch of a room (which is made up) that demonstrates the two point linear perspective, which is the most commonly used by artists. Notice the two vanishing points on the horizon. In this case both of the vanishing points are inside the sheet of paper. This is not always the case. When drawing, the vanishing points will always be on the horizon. The horizon will always be on the level of the eyes of the observer. Notice how on the sketch all the parallel lines converge to the same vanishing point. 

Drawing interior spaces is a very good way to understand perspective. For practice, try drawing the rooms inside your house.
