So, you’re beautiful in pencil, huh? Are you stuck with graphics? Are your friends and family proud of the drawings and sketches you make for them?
But you want to learn more.
How do you challenge your art to make your pencil drawing technique better? Honestly, you’ve already taken the first step: you came here with a thirst for knowledge. That’s an essential part of being a good actor: recognize that there’s always something new to learn and explore. The actor who they think has mastered everything has lost the curiosity needed to be a great actor.
Learn to Use Different Types of Pencils
One of the things I fell for as an intermediate artist was always using the same pencil for everyone. H2? HB? 2B? These are just letters and numbers in pencils in the craft store. I didn’t think they mattered. I thought I didn’t require different pencils for different jobs. Even (don’t judge me!) I used the same pencil to create art as I did to take notes: a simple mechanical pencil.
Pencil Drawing Technique
If you are a beginner, you can read pencil drawing techniques with any tool you have. The convenience and cost of a twenty-pack of mechanical pencils are perfect for getting started.
You’re not starting yet, though! You’ve leveled up, so it’s time for you to level up your tools as well. Your design will be more dynamic when you incorporate pencils of different ash and softness into your work.
Study the Different Strategies You Know
Sometimes in temporary pencil drawing, we make each line drawing the same as we did the last. Since we’re no longer beginners, we have a set of skills and habits to go back to, and let’s go back.
The best strategy for moving forward is to stop doing things the way you used to and try anything new.
One of the simple ways to diversify your portfolio and push yourself as a pencil sketch senator is to example different shading techniques. Instead of doing the same old shading you put into each drawing, give cross-hatching, dot-work, or physical integration a lead with one finger a test.
You can also make your new approach physical. Haven’t you ever been out sitting in a park? Get off your couch and head outside. Haven’t you ever sketched standing or on a giant pad of paper? Could you do it?
Varying your movements is also important. One of the everyday habits of beginning artists is to draw small and hard.
Pencil drawing works best when it comes to the shoulder rather than the wrist. Get your whole arm involved with your art! Since the small pictures do not serve well in this movement, take a more extensive paper and go home or go home. As a bonus, you’ll also quickly find that it’s easier to capture proportion if your art is more significant.
Buff Up On Anatomy and Such
For an extended period, I relied on a grid system for completing photo 3d drawing easily. As a beginner, I got a sense of human being shape without taking an anatomy course.
Except now, I need to improve my pencil drawing technique, which means time for me to understand the elements of what I’m drawing instead of focusing on the final picture.
For a long time, one of the Fallacies of Starter I believed was that the result was more important than the elements of a drawing.
It doesn’t seem right. To be a better actor, it’s essential that you know why shadows come in certain places; why the bodies are aligned the way they do; and why the foreground is darker than the background.
