Hi guys, today I recorded the first video of sketching tutorial ! To be honest that was not easy for me, as I am not used to speak alone in front of a camera. I plan to do more videos, so more I do more I should improve my video skills. Anyway, here we go !
Many beginners think that they can’t draw because they feel like facing a wall. I give you in the video 2 essential principles that should help you to start drawing in volume:
- Seeing things in transparency
- Decomposing an object in simple geometry shapes
If you practice theses 2 principles, you take the right path for great improvement. You will be even more ready for the coming tutorials such as how to draw ellipses, cylinders, curves and so on. I invite you to watch the above video to know more.
If you draw like the sketches below, the video might help you.
Before making the tutorial, I asked my friends (non initiated to drawing or design) to draw something of there choice. I wanted to look at there drawings and spot there major difficulty as pure beginners.
Then one of them told me:
“We want to draw in 3D but it looks like 2D, why ?”. – from Gnocci
It’s like there drawing skills has been freezed along the years since there childhood. 🙂 If you draw like the sketches below, watch the videos, try to apply the 2 principles and let me know about your progress !
