How to Do a Pencil Drawing | Drawing Tutorials



now let's talk about doing a pencil drawing you need pencils of course something to draw on perhaps paper and something to look at would be terrific so I have this beautiful bottle of wine no wine inside and I'm going to take a few of my drawing pencils now drawing pencils come in different numbers and letters you have H pencils and you have B pencils your B pencils are going to be darker and as the numbers increase 2 3 4 5 6 6 will be the darkest and then your H pencils are your lightest and as those numbers increase the higher the number with H the lighter the color is so I tend to really enjoy using a mix of pencils I have right now a 4 H which is going to be quite light a 2b and a 6b 6b being the darkest so I'm going to take a look at my wine bottle and I'm really just going to simply sketch it out so the top of the wine bottle is a slight ellipse it's the opening of the bottle then basically have just two straight lines coming down it's a mirror image on both sides you have a very simple curve heading outward and then the curve comes right back in and then it goes all the way down just straight it's going to tuck right in little curve and then a bigger curve right on the table I'm going to draw just a little bit of a straight line behind just to show that it's sitting on something now my next step would be bringing in more detail this is the most simplistic form what I drew if I wanted to I would continue looking much closer at that which I'm drawing in this case it's a wine bottle so I could bring in some shading I could bring in with my pencil little more detail again breaking it down looking at each individual shape I can get as expressive as I want with my lines the whole goal of drawing is to look at things or to feel things and to have a way of very uniquely expressing yourself so I'm going to make my lines on the outside a little darker and more expressive since it's glass you can see a little bit of the back coming through perhaps I draw just a teeny bit of reflection in here and here you have a very basic line drawing with pencil now if I were going to continue basically I would just continue exactly what I'm doing I can always use my eraser if I want to make a change and I would probably bring in more shading I look at where the darkest areas of the bottle and with my darkest pencil just sketch those or color those right in I would find my medium tones and I'd use my medium shaded pencils and then for the lightest areas of reflection I would use either with the white of the paper or I would erase right in to the pencil to allow that light color shine through sketching with pencils is limitless you literally could draw anything you want whether from your imagination or something you're looking at you could bring pencils with you anywhere you go and it's a terrific way to express yourself with drawing

  1. Conselhinho: – Só faça tutorial daquilo que você conhece e domina.

    . Todas as formas observáveis, partem das cinco figuras geométricas básicas em sua estrutura. No caso desta garrafa, você poderia ter iniciado com dois retângulos verticais (corpo e gargalo) e três elipses (base, meio e boca), finalizando com algumas curvas de ligação para depois começar a trabalhar volumes. Ou poderia começar com dois cilindros para já obter a volumetria e partir em seguida, para o acabamento.

    – Os comentários desnecessários que aparecem aqui embaixo, poderiam ser substituídos por troca de idéias, mas parece que as pessoas andam mais preocupadas em ridicularizar do que interagir positivamente.

    Grande abraço, valeu pelo seu esforço.

  2. Her face is brown and the rest of her body is fair white, then she started talking about how a wine bottle is empty….hmmm

  5. Actually, drawing can definitely be taught. I have had hundreds of students for drawing classes in NYC and around the world who never practiced any drawing. They felt they had "no talent". With practice, every single student now draws so beautifully. Like anything else, much is possible with practice. Best of luck on your artistic journey!

  7. These videos are meant to help the very basic beginner. If you have never picked up a pencil or you are totally new to drawing, they can be very, very helpful. Good luck with your creative journey!

  8. I finally found out what erasers are for. Up to today I chewed on them, but you can use them to erase stuff. Who would have guessed.
