Bird for Mike
Today, at the request of Mike, we try to draw a bird with a child.
Draw in pencil will. We have not talked before about the technique of drawing. The fact, that fall into these wilds do not feel like, and do not need it – paint as a convenient. The main thing, that the result will be (and it will be necessary) regardless of whether, who holds a token, pencil or crayon. For example, only one – pencil, in contrast to the marker, requires a playful mood and ease of movement. Three seconds, and the face painted. Five seconds – there were shadows. All quick and easy. Drawing the pencil can be seen, as the figure itself is changed. Only the character looked down in surprise, add a line of shadows under the eyes – and now look stern. Our basic rules of drawing techniques with pencils:
1.Do not we press hard on the pencil (almost always)
2.Do not strive for accuracy (in general)
3.Starting Line, know, that the end is not in “this site”, and “the other side” (explain: We must draw a line from one side of the square to the other. You can spend it on the line, can be made without the line, just driving with pencil and paper from one side to the other, You can put a pencil on one side, by tapping on it, to strike towards the other side – for example, today as ever and will draw a bird).
No more rules is not necessary (We believe, what about the table and lighting all know – both should be fairly smooth and convenient). All. Rest – themselves. Draw, Draw yourself, paint with a child. And do not throw it, which seems broken. All these figures hem (and not on the album, – and hemmed them into a book, to cover, cover. Each figure – Page. On the back write the story of the day, when it was painted. One hundred sheets – one hundred days. So call the album: “One Hundred Days”) It just seems unimportant. Think of yourself as a child – what was more important: a doll's severed braids or phone bill?
But, we digress. Penciling. Movement of light, fast. Strongly do not need to press. We hold a pencil and draw a wish. If possible, be careful, that the child would not hold the pencil too close to the lead – he does not see it, that draws. And arches his neck, sticks out his tongue, squint your eyes (well, just poured Dad!)
Getting Started. Draw two circles. Properly, this is not mugs (in contrast to the marker, Pencil gives more fantasies for the audience, and lets not finishing and not to provide some details of the picture), – a semicircular line:
This is the case, when you can trace all of five times. Oblique (remember the third version of the drawing?) a lid. We drew so: put a pencil in the lower left part of the circle, and gently pushing, quickly “struck a” pencil diagonally. And so two or three times. Next let a little shade (although it does not pay attention until. Shadows – dark matter, here is not so simple. Then we show):
Do the same with the other eye:
Do not know, Why is, it, and whether it is? Draw a very, and we decided to leave it:
Pupils. Just two black spots in eyes:
Beak. You can draw any. In birds, there are many different shapes of beaks. Show your child pictures of birds. Suppose he chooses, What he likes. Or remember the beaks of the birds, which he saw close to home.
Then a tiny explanation. Pay attention to one detail: the general direction of the person. It's easier to show, how do you explain. But try: follow the same, something to the plane of the eye located approximately perpendicular to the nose. Like this:
Or even the so-:
So, we draw the beak. It can be seen, that the bill in this case – a simple curve. Nevertheless, is, what we need:
Quite superfluous detail. But let it be:
Head. A bird's head – mostly a tool for making food. Well, sometimes there accidentally fall into the idea of procreation (one of our friend the parrot, caught this idea, ceased to live in peace, was a complete idiot, and until his death his whole appearance showed the urgent need for female). Tearing himself away from the memories, We drew a head (Homer’s Father=)):
Here take a look – before the wing, facial expression was one of the birds. Now it has become another. More than sad. The wing is drawn, As you can see quite simply:
And let the body. Like this, one line:
Could not resist, and remembered owl:
The tail will do three of these sticks. And three lines depict paw:
Now, one more:
All. A little photoshop, and on the wall.
Winter. Russia. Sparrow.
