Drawing for adults may seem difficult because most of them lack or ignore the basic skills. These skills are obvious for people who have been drawing a lot but they can be easily forgotten after a few years of no practice. You can use this tutorial to help you learn how to draw. The following are some of the drawing tips for adults.
Free your Hand
It is difficult to draw parallels or concurrent lines. The second line is likely to go in the wrong direction. This happens when you are trying too hard to draw carefully, it gives your hand room to make mistakes. The most complex training is drawing snakes, you can practice proportions, lengths, angles, change sizes, and most importantly to reach your hand how to move smoothly.
Snakes are usually thick at one point, them thin and thick again. To practice, draw a row of circles from the biggest to the smallest. Connect the ends of diameters of the circles then you’re done. Draw a series of the same circles changing their positions vertically and connect the diameters.
Create your Style
With a drawing instructor, it is easy to be great at repeating a drawing than creating your own. Redrawing a picture line by line without adding anything new you will end up with a drawing similar to the original one. It is important to follow tutorials but you should be more creative and less precise.
Shake your hand abut when drawing final lines and change the level of twitch every time. In the end, you will find that your drawing looks different than the original and you can recognize it. With thorough practice, time, and experience you will develop your style. Your unique hand movement will have a chance to shine creating your style.
Measure the Proportions
An adult can read and interpret measurements. Wrong proportions are the main problem for an aspiring artist. In drawing proportions define a location of an element relative to others. It also means that if you want to draw elements two times bigger, you have to double the distances. The first rule is to at least have two elements to talk about relativity.
Then learn to see proportions everywhere, for example how long your fingers are in comparison to the palm. This kind of training increased your concentration and with time your eyes will learn to do it without straining. Always practice until you get it right. Start with the simplest pictures for children and you can move to the next when you feel confident.
Analyze the Original Drawing
Try to understand the object, analyzing why it’s built and drawn like that. It is easy to modify your drawing and creating your style without breaking the rules. Ask yourself why the object looks like that? With the answers, you get to develop a base of vector information in your head.
For example in anatomy, you may learn curves of a body in one pose but it doesn’t tell you how the body looks when running or sitting. Matrix information is only useful in a few cases since it is a template to create the same thing all over again.
