Picture Look

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Measure the proportion of your pet, there is distance between the eyes, between the ears, from eyes to nose and mouth, and so on. Relate these basic features properly and your picture will look better than if they will not be calculated. The hardest thing for most artists – it's fur, how to make it look real? Use short strokes for short hair, longer strokes for longer hair. Use denser shading where the pet is darker and less dense, which is lighter. You will notice that even in all black pets have very little evidence is completely black areas, and when it comes to images on paper you will notice that the white pets will be a little dark areas.

Even using only a black pen (or pencil) and the album may see the color of animal. Agree, not all pets have fur, but you can clearly see the importance of drawing light shades of your animals. If you use a graphite pencil, not pen or ink, you can buy a few more dark pencils and some more light for convenience. The practice improves skills, and your first drawings, probably will not like you want. Do not worry, be reduced to a minimum correction, start again if your image becomes too messy and uncontrollable. Sometimes you'll see something like the figure is obviously wrong, but you can not understand that. Ask other people, let look at your picture and compare it with a photograph.

Sometimes they can help identify such an error, such as the eyes of animals that are too large, then you are simply unable to see, because you looked at the picture for too long. There is also a way to look at your picture in the mirror. Looking at his reflection, sometimes it's easier to notice errors in the same proportions. You certainly can specifically enhance some details of the portrait and make it your style, a certain error in the ratio leads to a change in the total impressions of the paintings, and although it will not be the exact image of your pet it may also be interested. Attracting your own pet is often easier than drawing someone else's. Since you regularly see a pet, you are more familiar with it and will know exactly whether the pattern is similar to the original. Anyone who wants to master the skills of writing, portraits of animals need a lot to observe animals and of course a lot of time to devote to practice drawing.
