  • Hello my friends and welcome to another Tuesday of tutorial!

  • I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today we will do an exercise

  • to improve drawing.

  • And that is because the most common error for beginners, and actually

  • the most common error, in drawing in general, is that the drawings look stiff,

  • and the lines don´t flow

  • so I will show you the best exercise I know to remedied this.

  • So that your drawings looks fluid.

  • This error that I mentionnated in many cases comes from making

  • the lines too tight.

  • or attempting to do a long line

  • which is actually a series of short ones.

  • This may also happen when attempting to make a curved line

  • or a circle.

  • I may exaggerating a little bit but these type of lines don´t look good

  • and profesional.

  • Therefore we should concentrate in practicing making long, fluid lines.

  • Do the movements with your whole arm, not just from the wrist and fingers.

  • To practice, I recommend drawing figures with these type of lines.

  • It doesn´t really matter what you draw.

  • I´m just inventing this one as we go.

  • The important thing is that your lines are continuos.

  • They are not broken.

  • The lines are nice and long.

  • And let´s add some holes.

  • One on each side.

  • But even these ellipses, are with continuos movements.

  • And I will shade the holes.

  • The shading will be with short lines, but even these are from one end to

  • the other.

  • Don´t stop in the middle. Be decisive!

  • Let´s mark the cast shadow with one continuos line...

  • and then shade it.

  • With the parallel lines which is also part of the exercise.

  • And I will darken the area of the shadow close to the object.

  • Good!

  • And we can add some more lines as if it had an aperture or two,

  • just to practice making more lines.

  • All right!

  • Let´s sketch another one.

  • Now a big curve here on the top, as if it were a dome or something.

  • It really doesn´t matter what you sketch.

  • The important thing, again, is that your lines are continuos,

  • that they are flowing, that you don´t stop. I mean that you don´t stop

  • in the middle of a line.

  • Let´s make some in another direction, like thisand we can reinforce

  • the base, sketch the cast shadow, and fill it in.

  • Let´s also shade the hole on top.

  • Like so.

  • Andll sketch something else over here,

  • such as a glass or something like that

  • with two ellipses, and then the sides...

  • So simple, but clean.

  • And just for practice let´s draw some planes.

  • Onetwoand three.

  • By doing this, soon you will feel how your hand starts loosening up.

  • Now we will draw a shoe... with two ovals, the end, and then a line for

  • the overall shape, with an oval on top.

  • This of course is not a real shoe. I am making it up as we go,

  • we are just practicing making continuos lines, like this.

  • Good!

  • Now let´s think about a futuristic vehicle. Very aerodynamic and with

  • long continuos lines.

  • Again, this doesn't need to make a lot of sense, what it is important

  • is that your lines are fluid, continuos, clean, not erratic.

  • Let´s shade the windshield, add an air intake, a flap or wing over here.

  • Very good!

  • Everything with loose, continuos lines.

  • We can shade this, add something over here

  • And maybe we can redesign the lower part of it.

  • I´m just playing around to practice making these smooth lines.

  • ll darken this further.

  • Good!

  • I think you get the idea.

  • Let´s just make one final little sketch over hereof a yacht.

  • Of course it this important for these lines, that you hold the pencil or pen

  • softly, not tight.

  • And as we mentioned that you do the movement, with your whole arm.

  • I recommend doing these exercises daily for a few minutes

  • maybe as a warm up before you draw.

  • And you will very soon, feel the difference.

  • If you enjoyed it, please give it a LIKE! share it to your friends
