Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Assignment 1:
1. Pencil position. Still not used to under hand position, but definitely this position helps to draw long, light lines, while writing position helps more detailed, controlled lines.

2. Comfortable position. definitely prefer turning table/page. Under hand with about 30 degree feel more comfortable.

3. sphere practice : need repeat more circle/oval in the future.

4. Chair is a bit challenging to me.

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Good job, Alice
The chair was meant as a challenge, you did not bad. Yours is a correct sketch of a chair. But as you could read, the motto of this classroom is "draw what you see". You drew a correct chair, but not THIS chair. No big deal for this introductory class, but learning realistic art starts with learning to see what there really is, blocking the imagination.
Well done, please move on to class 2

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Thank you Around for reviewing the submission.
I am glad to come to the right class, as "drawing what you see" is exactly what I need to learn

I found that underhand position is better for drawing longer lines whereas writing position is better for details. My circles are not good. I gave my best for the chair.

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Good job, Shenko
The purpose of this first class is to get some insight in handling the pencil. You clearly appreciated it.
Please move on to class 2

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Hello again,

So I did pursue these classes a while back, but I had to take a huge break because I couldn't manage it well with university at all, and so I feel the need to start over because I've forgotten a lot of what I had learnt.

I'll update the chair exercise later. I definitely found it easier to use my elbow to draw straight lines although I felt like I didn't really need to as such for the circles exercise. Both the Underhand and the Writing hand positions suit me but only for my right (dominant) hand. It's just a squiggly line if I use my left .
Also, I've struggled with keeping my drawings neat for a while now. The granite from my drawings get onto my hands while I'm drawing and then smudge onto the paper. It's really inconvenient. I have tried keeping a page underneath my hand while I'm drawing which does occasionally help, but I generally see artists don't need that to keep their drawings clean. Do you have any more tips for me?

Circles



Underhand Position



Writing Hand Position



Thank you,
Sahar

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Hello,

So this is the chair. I'm not particularly happy with it (partly because of how messy it looks), but it was the best I could do right now.



Thank you,
SaharM.

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Post my assignments. The most interesting part is that more and more sphere-shaped things came into my mind when I did the circle work.

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

HI. New to drawing and the forum. Thanks so much for these classes.
I had some difficulty with the underhand but tried a few circles with it .
Sorry for the picture quality; I couldn't get it to pick up the lines properly.
