In the process of drawing images, we often start out with a basic outline drawing, as the foundation, for learning where everything else goes, in relation to the outline and each other. The problem I find with many beginners and well practiced people alike, is they do not always, understand outlines very well, also as in the case of beginners, they do not understand at all, in many instances.
The easiest way to draw and understand outlines, is by using tracing methods of drawing because when you trace an image, you can only, realistically make an outline, as tracing doesn’t lend it’s self to shading. Tracing also gives you a better understanding, of how pictures work, especially when trying to understand, construction drawing.
Let me explain, by using a car wheel as an example, we all know that wheels are round but they are only round, when we look at them directly face on, because when we turn them, at an angle, they become, more and more oval, in shape.
The correct term to call this oval shape, is an ellipse and is something many people have problems with, when trying to draw them accurately, to find out more about this, please take look at single point perspective and two point perspective, you will find the both helpful.
Get yourself some pictures that you might like to draw and trace them, so as to be able, to take a look at these images, as only line drawings, you will notice when tracing these outlines, that they are most often, not as you might have thought they are.
Doing this, will help you to understand, that shapes are not often, the shapes we think we see and that wheels, are most often not circular but oval, along with many other shapes we see but actually, only think we see. This is because our brains tell us that wheels are round or that a shape is this shape or that shape, when in actual fact, many shapes are not what we think they are because our brains are telling us what we see, rather than actually, seeing what we see.
Please find below some videos, that will inform you on how to draw easy step by step, using simple methods as always, except this might be just a little more time consuming but actually produces more accurate results.
It is easy to draw, if you follow the information in these first two videos which show you step by step how but most people will shrug them off, saying that’s not drawing. What they don’t really understand is that, most of the stuff they want to draw and most of the so called experts doing drawing out there, in the big wide world, aren’t doing it the hard way like you think they are but are actually doing it the easy way.
The reason why they do it the easy way is because it is faster and anybody will tell you, that time is money, so if you take longer you make less money, that’s why they do it the easy way.
The easy draw method of drawing is used everywhere, by everybody in the drawing industry but the only people not doing it, the easy way are people like you but lets be honest, your not in the drawing industry are you? You might like doing it, you might be good at it but you probably don’t do it the easy way because most people think, it is too easy and don’t consider it to even be drawing. These people are wrong, yes they are wrong because if you want to learn how to draw, then doing it this way, gives you a lot of good practical information, teaching you how to do it well by informing your visual memory, at the very least.
Doing it this way, also helps you to practice other important drawing skills, like shading, in a much easier way and much more quickly, than doing it the hard way, in fact doing it the hard way, mostly teaches you how to get it wrong by not giving you the correct visual information in the first place, making it much more difficult because you have to, at some point, undo all the learning you have gained, about doing it the wrong way.
The other videos, are about showing you, other more conventional examples of how to draw with marker pens and watercolors, they show you different ways to draw, and it is always best to be able to draw in as many different ways as possible. The first two videos, show you how to practice seeing and getting the correct information, right from the start, giving you a good strong foundation, to build your drawing skills on for the future.
Plus take a look at this for speed painting, which is a term I do not really like because it is not really speed painting, it is merely speeded up video, which is something quite different, although it only took me an hour and 17minuets in total.
These methods will help everybody to learn how to draw easy step by step, just like the professionals do, all the time because its more about money than art or drawing, when you are doing it for a living.
PS. my son made the music on the last video and it’s not half bad.
The site how to draw cars easy, step by step on Hubpages, has been rewarded by receiving many positive comments and worth a visit, for some great information about drawing cars easy.
The page shown above, is about using simple methods of drawing, it is particularly aimed at drawing cars but most of the information can be transferred to any other subject matter. I am sorry but you will need to take a look at page art, a visual question on the way to it. This page is about negative space, it is an interesting concept, about seeing your drawings by looking at the area, surrounding the subject, take a look it, it will be worth it, perhaps you will find out how to draw cars another different way.
How to draw cars easy, yes it is very easy, you just do it like everybody else does it, the problem is, you don’t know how everybody else does it, do you?
If you don’t know, then I will tell you how 2 draw cars and I will tell you how to draw cars step by step as well, I will tell you how to get them right first time, every time, just like all the great car designers do it.
Except they had to learn the hard way and I will show you the easy way, with no holds barred, bang on every time, without failure, because everybody is still learning the hard way.
There is a much easier way to learn how to draw, that for some great unknown reason, nobody is telling you about, so I will.
How do they design great looking cars?
How do they draw great looking cars?
The simple answer is they don’t, 99% of all car drawings are drawn on production lines by more than one person and the final designs are not even drawn by people but are actually drawn by machines nowadays, yes they are.
Do you really think that computer software companies design drawing programs for the fun of it?
No fear, these companies design drawing programs as a means of making money by providing others with equipment, that will make their jobs easier, drawing software is designed to make things easier.
Do you think that companies spend thousands of dollars on computer equipment, so there designers can sit around all day, drawing with a pencil, no fear, they don’t. Yes people do sit around drawing all day with pencils sometimes but mostly that is only to generate ideas and a great deal of the time is spent drawing, redrawing over, and over again, the same things, that are just slightly different.
Nowadays this is mostly done by machine, when Walt Disney made cartoons like Jungle Book they employed hundreds of people, to produce those animated movies, now they use machines.
If I was to draw a fairly decent car from scratch, free hand, it would take me at least a couple of hours but it would take anybody, the same amount of time not just me because drawing lines takes time, no matter how good you are and to draw a fairly decent car, would take at least a couple of hours. Then to make a slight change to it, you would have to spend, another couple of hours, drawing another one, that was slightly different, so at that speed it would take you 8 hours to make, about 4 changes.
Do you really think that anybody lets you do that, when designing cars, especially when there are thousands, of slight alterations made in the design process, to make sure everything is as near perfect as possible?
Think about it, if someone designed a car, then they decided to put it into production, it would cost millions of dollars to get to that point, so if they then produced, ten or twenty and found out they where no good, do you think it would be OK? Trust me it would not be OK, car companies don’t say, we will just spend another few million dollars putting it right, not on your life.
When a car goes into production, it is completely right because if it is not, then it will cost the company millions of dollars to put right and perhaps even people’s lives, will be at risk, so that’s why they get it right, but the truth is, how to draw cars step by step, is very easy when you do it like they do.
The truth is you can do it, just like the car companies do it, at home with a computer because that’s all they use to do the jobs, of hundreds of people and you can get the software for free, legally free.
You too can scribble a few cars down on a piece of paper, then design them and produce a finished professional piece of work, every time, the same way they do it, easily.
How to draw easy cars, will provide you with all the information to get you started, on how to do this, legally free.
How to draw a car easy, is only the start, it will soon grow into, how to draw cars easy step by step, one will soon become many.
