I’ve known Renita for a while now. Originally from America, Renita now lives in Wigtown, which the book town in Scotland, with the most stunning views across the estuary. When I’ve performed at the festival, the children have all been whipped up to a frenzy by Renita, who welcomes them in and “settles them down” [...]
All the parts that make up a face go in to creating the look of emotions. It is the relationship of these parts and how they are twisted and drooped and lifted and angled that creates the impression of an emotion.
I think that most emotion comes from the eyes. Circles with dots in are the easiest way to get emotion into a character. the rest -the eyebrows, nose and mouth are like accents in writing, they change the meaning of the eyes, so that angry eyes could also be concentrating hard kind of eyes, but the mouth will probably finish the effect of the emotion. showing teeth for anger and a set jaw for concentration and determination.
learn all the different shapes that the parts of the face can make then you can put them all together to create different emotions.
Maybe you are doing some graffiti or touching up a little scratch on the car? Either way you will need a spray paint can. So quick and useful – but don’t go tagging where you’re not welcome or where you’re going to damage other people’s stuff!
If you are planning on making a treasure map, then you will want to put a compass design in the corner or else no one – not even you – will know where to go and dig up the treasure!
Follow the simple instructions and you will soon be on the right course!
This is not such a silly idea as it might seem. Skeletons are tall and thin while videos are wide. I’ve been thinking of doing a skeleton for quite some time, but I was trying to think of a way to make the skeleton a bit lively – make him dance! What a briliant idea!
So this will give you a rough idea of how to draw a skeleton whirling and imaginary lasso while riding an imaginary horse! If you wan really detailed anatomical advice, I’d have a look at the wonderful Dorling Kindersley book on anatomy http://bit.ly/AnatomyForTheArtist-UK
Are you dyslexic? If you are you are really lucky – you are one o f the creative people that make this world worth living in. You’ll find all those “normal” people don’t understand you and you probably don’t understand them – they want everything so neat and tidy and sorted out into nice little boxes that can be ticked.
Because dyslexics have to work harder to fit in, they tend to be entrepreneurs and leaders and creatives – the people who make it all worthwhile.
So, please don’t think of it as a disease or something you suffer from. You are blessed to be among the people who make this world worth living in. Enjoy the brilliant way your brain has been wired up. :) Here’s a video with some of my thoughts about dyslexia
and here is another!
Basically it is using pen and ink to render tonal values. one layer of lines will give a an effect of grey, but when you cross hatch over the first set of lines with a second set, drawn at an angle to the first you make the effect of darkening the shade of grey in the area.
when you keep crossing at different angles the are becomes darker and darker until it is almost completely filled in.
That Gangnam style is a very catchy tune! I thought you might like to see how I would draw Psy in one of his crazy suits doing the Horse riding pose. I had a challenge from @juanPabloo5 to draw a skeleton doing the? gangnam style dance – what do you think? give a like if you think that wouldbe fun as I’ve been meaning to draw a skeleton for ages :)
