How to Make a Drawing Look 3-D

16 Feb 2011

It's always with a bit of anxiety that I do a pencil drawing. I want the form to look as if the paper doesn't exist--as if the image is coming right off the page, and that is a challenging task. I caught Scott Waddell's second installment of a pencil portrait demonstration, where he discusses how to go from a nuts-and-bolts block-in to one that has shadows and sensitivity to the anatomy of the face--how the skull supports the nose, lips, and eyes. Check it out and see what you think of the pencil drawing lessons in the video--there are plenty!

Also, come join us at the Artist Daily Facebook page. I'm there a couple of times a day talking about what is on my radar or just art talk in general, and I would love for you to come check it out and "Like" us, and most importantly tell me what Artist Daily videos would you like to see us do next!
