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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. To make a painted portrait as close as a friend's photo,friendyou 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
