- A sheet of paper, a pencil, eraser, images.
Select a photo, which will copy the image. If it's a portrait of a man, it is better to take a few pictures, since the expression of the faces in each photo are different, and to capture the characteristic features of the multiple images. Prepare a sheet of paper, a pencil and eraser. Place pictures in front of the eyes, fixing them on the tablet, a wall or something else. In this position, the original will be visible without distortion in the future. Start to do a sketch.
Sketch light touches the contours of the object, it is advantageous placing it on the sheet. Next, begin to sketch in details of the object. Check the direction and size of the picture with the original, using a simple pencil. If you have to increase the drawing – pencil measure how many times the delayed a part of the length or width of the image on the photos and transfer these data to your drawing.
Further pririsovyvat image details – eyes, ears, nose, structure and location of paws (of animals), etc. All the time check with the original.
When the main image is ready, pay attention to shadows, glare and other light phenomena on the body of the object. Note all this figure. Note that your drawing will not be an exact copy of the photographic image. This is due to small errors, and his vision of the nature of the artist.
Using the eraser delete unnecessary lines, brush pattern from spots around the image. Copy or create your own background. Add shadows on the plane. Select materials for work in color or make pencils of different softness for the hatch pattern.
To complete the picture, start with the background, then go to the object, gradually refining the details. All the time pay attention to the original photos. Can add your details. For example, draw a cat on the neck bow, or depicting the person in clothing of the middle ages. Refine and make clearer the foreground of the picture.
Advice 2: How to copy picture
Redrawing images is a good way to get the hand to draw. Copy ready is often easier than creating a picture out of my head or draw an object from nature. There are several methods of redrawing.
One of the ways redraw - method of partitioning into squares. It is especially good when the source image should be scaled to increase or, conversely, to make smaller. Divide the sheet with the source image into equal squares, a relatively large or small as you prefer. Then take a clean sheet of paper and raschertite it into the same number of squares. Use a pencilto after redrawing the grid can be erased. Consider each square of the picture, will learn the location of the lines. Repeat the contents of each square on a clean sheet of paper, following the lines.
Another way is the representation of the depicted object into geometrical shapes. For example, the cat's head to present a circle, her torso - in the form of an oval, paws - in the form of rectangles and circles. Draw a schematic object in the form of geometric shapes on a blank sheet of paper. Then adjust the outlines of a cat: make a more accurate contours, add smaller details. Complete the drawing by shading, giving it volume, highlighting the more lit and shadow areas of the object.
To keep the proportions of the object, measure the ratio of any part thereof with the image as a whole. For example, the picture shows a cat standing on its hind legs. Measure her head high and put on the growth of cats. How many times the length of the head will fit in the length of her torso - that is their ratio to each other. Knowing this ratio, set it dots on a blank sheet of paper. When drawing proceed from these labels. In the process of constantly measure and compare the proportions.
The arbitrary redrawing. Try to copy lines in an arbitrary order. To do this, imagine that the figure is a set of lines, and not the subject that carries meaning.
Probably the easiest way to copy a picture (or rather copy) the redrawing of the light. Attach the original image to a window glass, and top with a clean sheet of paper. The outline of the image will Shine through - just circle them. Complete the pattern on their own, giving it volume and finish small parts.
Practice first more to redraw a simple image, gradually moving to more complex.
