How to draw friends pencil
If the task is to draw a friend, you can draw it from life or draw it from a photo. The latter option is ideal if the portrait becomes a surprise for the person. It is best for novice artists to get a 3B pencil and paper of the desired size. Next you need to select a photo of a friend and gradually draw a portrait or figure in full growth as follows:
- Outline with light lines what will be depicted on the future portrait: besides the outline of the person himself, draw what other objects will be in the picture. Particular attention should be paid to the location of parts of the face - eyes, mouth, nose, ears, etc.
- Under the muscle layer and skin are the bones of the skull.Real artists begin to draw precisely with them - with cheekbones, eye sockets, etc., and on their basis eyes, eyebrows and other parts of the face are drawn. Thanks to this technique, the image of a friend's face will not “disperse”, and this is possible, even despite the fact that the portrait is drawn from a photo.
- To make a painted portrait as close as a friend's photo,you need to constantly compare the ratio of distances and angles. Next, you need to draw in clear lines all parts of the face - eyes, nose, lips, etc. Mimic lines are also applied, which will give the face emotionality. These include folds under and above the eyes, nasolabial folds, etc.
- When clear lines are drawn, you need to enter shades and shadows in the portrait of a friend. With the help of shadows, the drawing will become more lively and voluminous.
- If the pattern turns out very sharp, too clear lines can be shaded with a finger or a piece of paper.
According to the same scheme as above, you can not only draw a portrait of a friend, but also depict a collective portrait in stages, combining several photos into one drawing.
