How to draw an ornament?

When drawing any ornament there is a sequence of individual elements. Experts conditionally divide the process into the design of the base and the related parts. In the case of a plant ornament, the basis will be a branch or a trunk, on which other elements will “sit down” - flowers and leaves. So, how to draw an ornament:

  • We draw a base - a zigzag ornate line, from which in some places there are “processes”. They will have flowers or leaves of our branch. Depending on whether the ornament should be long or fragmentary, our base will be drawn out or, on the contrary, arranged in a separate pattern.
  • The skeleton is ready, you can begin to "revive" it. Pay attention to the so-called reference points - the most extreme points of the ornament. Connect them with barely visible straight lines. According to the rules, additional elements of ozhivka should not go beyond these lines. In the event that it did happen, do not worry much. In the end, this is your creation and you create it on your own.

If you own design programs, for example, Photoshop CS3, then you can draw an ornament with their help. The fact is that most of the ornaments are created using exactly repetitive elements. Here they can be modeled in the program.

In addition, the network has a lot of sites offering download ready-made ornaments. Here are a few of them:
