A- Drawing as formal artistic creation might be defined as the primarily linear rendition of objects in the visible world. concepts, thoughts, attitudes, emotions, and fantasies given visual form, symbols, and even abstract forms. This definition applies to all graphic arts and techniques that are characterized by an emphasis on form or shape rather than mass and color, as in painting. Drawing as such differs from graphic printing processes in that a direct relationship exists between production and result. Drawing, in short, is the end product of a successive effort applied directly to the carrier. The given article provides great information. Explaining the importance of drawing and the different ways it’ll affect an artist’s life. Every artist has to gain the skill, whether by self-teaching or by class. As discussed, this is true for, illustrators, architects, painters, sculptors, designers, also tattoo artists. Artists have to learn how to see and interpret what they see in line, shading, contouring onto paper and screen. An artist can attend a drawing class or program that is particular to drawing realistically. Longer studio classes can help them to capture the flow and appearance of an existing design. one can also partake drawing as a personal study, being self-taught is commonly impressive. though a class could teach you more about the individual pencils, charcoals, pastels, pens and inks and more. Artists long to master how to draw realistic objects and figures every time they put pen to paper, there are drawing techniques that one must focus on. First, come observation and hand-eye coordination, so that we train the eye to interpret what we see in ways that make sense when we are drawing, no matter what our subject is. When artists spend hours or days working from the same pose, their drawings become analyses of values related to forms turning from the light to the shadow. A drawing forms the basis for reproduction or copying, it is nonetheless unique by its very nature. Flip through any art book and you are sure to see wonderful examples of different expressions of realism. I look forward to continuing my attempt to mastering the craft of drawing.
B- I thought this article was very interesting. It mentions how drawing is the backbone of art. And while not all art has to have any aspects of drawing, it can be very helpful to be able to draw. There are many different ways that you can learn how to draw. I had not thought much about there being classes specifically for how to draw one type of thing but that seems like a great resource. What I found to be cool about our class is that we have practiced natural forms such as faces and fruit. Then we have also practiced man made objects like toilet paper, cups, and bottles. The article mentions how an artist has to learn how to observe and interpret what they see. I think this is a very important skill, before this class there would have been many shapes I would have overlooked when just drawing a hand. DeMartin says â€œDrawing should be done from a standing position with oneâ€™s arm extended so the motion comes from the shoulder, not just the wrist,â€ he indicates. â€œArtists should be able to see both the drawing surface and the model within their field of vision.â€ I found this to be very interesting, I never draw standing, and more often than not my shoulder is not involved. I would be interested to work on some sketches from that advice and see how the results change. But there are different poses that could work or be better for different artists, not everybody works the same. When discussing line and shadow the author said that artists often mistake dark values in the light for shadows. I thought was an interesting thing to consider. Shading is a skill that I am personally still trying to be confident in, and there could be many times where I make this same mistake. “In truth, we donâ€™t see a line marking the edge of a face, we merely see where the form curves away from view. Drawing a solid line on the edge of elements suggests shapes, not forms.” This is a great quote from the article, and something I struggle with often. In my hand and face drawings I always create very dark or thick contour lines on the outside or edge and it makes the piece lose some of the realistic aspect.
