Starting with the basic shape

Beginner painting should start with simple shapes, including triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles, as well as three-dimensional vertebral bodies, cubes, and spheres. You can also start with simple shapes, such as books, fruits, etc. As the foundation progresses, add a combination of different shapes.

Eyes

If you think the picture is too complicated, don't know how to outline a simple outline. Then try to look at your eyes, which will simplify the painting, ignore the minor details, and only see the main contours. Of course, you can take off your glasses.

From big to small, first and second

The order of drafting should be to draw a large shape (whole) first, then draw a small shape (details); draw the main shape first, and then draw the secondary shape. For example, to draw hair, do not draw one by one at the beginning, should be divided into groups according to hair style, brightness, etc., draw a shadow relationship and finally draw details.

Heavy overall, light local

The painting steps should be “whole-partial-total”, and the focus of drawing the sketch is to focus on the overall level and proportionality, rather than focusing on the details. The overall processing is not good, and the works drawn must be very easy.

Focus on painting and distinguish primary and secondary

Separate the most important part of the object and focus on the drawing, and simply handle the other parts. For example, sketch avatars should be based on facial features, and other parts should be properly summarized.

Use a stack of pens and use less rubber

That is, when correcting the error or correcting the distortion, you should draw a new line on the edge of the original line to cover the wrong part, instead of erasing the original inaccurate line.

Find the light source

Nearly big and small, near real and far away

Things of the same size, the thing closest to the eye is relatively larger, and the farther point is smaller. The near things should be meticulously detailed when painting and the far paintings should be more imaginary.

Don't blindly pursue super realism

Ultra-realism looks really shocking and is very popular among ordinary people. But! Do not! Suitable! Hey! Early! Learn! By! Unless you like it and you are determined to learn. In addition, in the eyes of many professionals, some super-realism is not high.

More than One

Constantly copying your favorite works to enhance the understanding of lines and the feel of painting. It is recommended to practice from easy to difficult, and one work better than painting.

Five minutes of heat

Just select a theme (such as observed in front of you), draw the things in front of you in 5 minutes without thinking about style and precision. It is necessary to consider how to draw things in the field of vision as much as possible. Come down.

Reverse painting

The purpose of this exercise is to get rid of the interference of past experience and rational thinking, and draw the pattern you observe, the so-called right brain painting. When you put the picture right, it may be much better than expected.
