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 !
Mervin – 37yo. Chocolate break
Marie, 29yo. Sketching her creation.
Gnocci – 34yo. Fan of airplane and wine.
Laetitia – 32yo. Back to Office after celebrating New year.
Michoucroute – 30yo. Still celebrating the new year.
Marie – 29 years old. Maybe counting the last minutes before new year.
Marie 26yo. Already thinking about Chinese New Year, I guess.
Tell me what you think about the creation and the videos !
Your feedback are sincerely appreciated. Thanks !
Hi, That was a great video!
Could you please do one tutorial on basics of human figures? Drawing a product in context with a human figure? That would be a lot of help!
You’re doing a great job! Thanks again 😀
Thank you very much
very useful for beginners indeed!!!
My pleasure Livnat.
very good video!
thank you for sharing your expertise with others!
despite being his first video tutorial is already very good!
I just would like to give an idea … to make a script before the tutorial.
to you use it
and please when you remember … talk a little slower.
anyway … congratulations!
I will try to speak slower and clearer. More like how I do in normal life.
Learning how to make video is somehow like learning how to draw. Things get better by practicing. Your recommendation will definitely help.
I plan to do some more videos. But this week end, I need to go accomplish my Roll pf paper sketch challenge ! I guess I may have 12m left (?!).
Thank you !
Thanks for the video. Useful tips. I like your sketches.
I will start to practice with using pen.
Thanks Irene. You will see that drawing with a pen will become a good habit. 🙂
It’s a nice, funny and clear video. It’s easy to catch the essential for simple volume objects that can be extrapolated to more complicated forms. Keep it up!
Wonderfull to have & see this video!
Thank you Renata 🙂
