Sketching is only appreciated when people have to make their own sketches or draw their first face on paper. Well if you are someone who is just venturing into the field and is finding it difficult to draw a face; read this article further to find the easy steps to draw your first face.
Step 1: Take a clean sheet of paper and draw a circle. The circle has to be perfect and large enough for you to accommodate all the features of the face. After drawing the circle, draw a vertical line in the centre to make sure symmetry is maintained. Before we move on to the next step, draw the jaw line based on the size of the circle.
Step 2: Now use the ruler to separate the vertical line into seven equal parts; you can name them as you wish. To explain it easily we have named the parts as 1, 2, 3, middle, 4, 5, 6. Once you practice more, you don’t need to have a ruler to separate the circle into parts.
Step 3: Once the face is effectively split into seven parts; draw eyes on the middle layer. The eyes need to be compact and aligned horizontally to each other. Make sure to leave the same amount of space from the sides of the head to both the eyes. Another important aspect is to leave just the right amount of space between the eyes to draw the nose.
Step 4: To draw the nose, use two straight lines starting from the inner corner of the eyes. The lines are there to set a boundary to help you. We would like to suggest you look up tutorials on how to draw each individual part separately. This article is just a general outline. Draw the nose with the help of the boundary and circles in between layers 4 and 5. Once the nose is drawn, extend the line upwards to finish of the eyebrows. The eyebrows can be shaded based on preference.
Step 5: Draw a triangle with the tip of the nose touching the tip of the triangle. Use that as a reference to draw the lips at layer 6 with the help of circles.
Step 6: Move to the area between layers 1 and 2 to draw the hairline. Once the hairline is fixed, it is up to the person who is sketching to determine what type of hair that they want to draw.
Step 7: The final step is crucial as it involves erasing all unwanted lines and boundaries. We suggest that you use a normal eraser to get the hang of things before moving to an electric eraser.
Sketching has been around for ages and is looked at as an early form of a study and isn’t as detailed as a painting. Sketching is a rough form of drawing and is never done to the exact dimensions. The very popular doodling is also considered as a form of sketching. In this article we look at the different form of sketching that is widely recognized.
Croquis is set to represent a template that is drawn to identify the artist about a person or an event at a later stage. The sketch isn’t completely accurate is drawn to represent the lack of time that the artist has. Croquis is a form that has been around for ages but has recently become popular with fashion designer, who sketch a live model to keep their pose, attire or presence in mind.
The form of sketching where an artist takes their canvas to the great outdoors and quickly perform a color sketch of the skies above; they then take their color sketches back inside to elaborate on. These days many anime artists tend to rely on pochade because of how easy it is. It is essentially used to capture the scenic beauty, with overindulgence on the sky. Fans of the popular anime genre would tell you about how detailed every inch of the anime is; thus these pochades come in handy for artists, who are trying to recreate real-life in their work. Pochade is an upgraded version of croquis; croquis doesn’t involve the use of colors and also are used for sketching a number of different scenes, objects, and emotions. Vincent Van Gogh is a famous artist who used to use the pochade; he was known to take his canvas or the surface he was painting on, outside and then finish up his work indoors. Van Gogh would actually sketch on the surface of the canvas and believed that the pochade was a great skill to possess.
- Portrait Sketch
Portrait sketches are known to be the hardest form of sketching; because they were able to stand alone as works of art themselves, without having to work further on them. These days they are used to find the perfect angle at which to draw someone; typically a person is drawn from multiple angles and then the perfect angle is chosen. A wide array of paints and canvases can be used in a portrait sketch and many believe that portrait sketches are only diminished by the imagination of the sketcher. The portrait sketch is also used to capture subtle emotional expressions on canvas.
