The design is a wonderful form of art in itself, but is also a great exercise for other forms of art like painting, for example.

Choosing your drawing supplies

There are a variety of different design tools for artists today and you choose to work with is based on your preference. You must work with a number of different things before finding the tools that fit your design style.

Do not go out and spend a ton of money in their sources of design at first.

Graphite pencil - graphite pencils vary in hardness and are labeled from 9 to 9B. H pencils are the hardest. B pencils are softer. The higher the number in front of B darker the mark. H pencils are generally used for detailed line where the pencil B give rich large dark lines for bold expressive drawings.

Charcoal - Charcoal also come in a variety of hardness and are labeled either from H to B as graphite, or simply, "medium", "soft" or "hard". charcoals tend to wear very quickly because of its softness.

Mixture Tortillions - strains rolled paper with a point used to mix in his drawings.

Own kind - a soft, flexible rubber that can be crushed in any way to pick up and remove the pencil and charcoal. The SANFORD kneaded erasers are popular.

Pencil Eraser - These are wonderful to get into small areas of their drawings. They may also be sharp as a common pencil.

Fasteners - Fasteners protect their drawings is stained or ruined. There are two types of fasteners: permanent and viable. permanent elements are used in a finished drawing to protect, where viable closure is used during the design process as you work. Be extremely careful when working with clips using only in a well ventilated area. When the fixer spray, be sure not to spray a section for a long time and just spray a light mist standing about three feet away from the drawing. You should probably try in some drawings first practice whether a fastener is ideal for you. When you're ready to buy a more expensive grade of paper, choose something that will work best with the media you use. The paper comes in a variety of different textures smooth to rough, often referred to as the "tooth". A very soft paper does not work well for some media as the area lacks texture, and will not take some drawing mediums well. If the paper is too rough, the medium can simply slip on the surface. Strathmore Brand makes excellent document that is very popular with artists.

Writing horse hair brush - You should be able to buy a development horsehair brush at any local art store or shop online. This is a very useful tool for wiping unwanted rubber remains of its design.

Basic drawing techniques:

There are two basic ways to approach a design: linear and tonal. The linear approach to a drawing focuses on contour lines and shapes. In tonal drawing, you make use of gradations to indicate different levels of his subject.

Avoid looking at your design too often. Make sure you are constantly focusing on the topic and just by looking at its design. Focuses on the subject and draw what you see.

Never throw one of your drawings. Keep an elegant portfolio whatever you draw.

Holding the pencil - Keep your pencil in a way that is most comfortable for you. Some hold the pen as you would hold a pen or pencil when you write. Others hold a pencil with a pencil between thumb and forefinger, with the rest of the pencil resting in the palm of your hand. Whatever the method used to carry out your pencil, make sure you do not hold the pencil too hard.

Contour Drawing - This technique is very basic just draw the outline of your subject without shading to indicate form.

Drawing outline blind - similar to the contour drawing, you do not look at the paper. The purpose of this exercise is to force him to better see what you are drawing.
Smolder - This drawing technique uses a series of parallel lines drawn next to each other in the same direction, giving the appearance of value.

Hatch - Similar incubation you draw multiple layers of hatch lines at different angles that overlap each other.

Tonale or Value Drawing - this design approach are showing the various changes of light and shadow in our image without the use of strong lines and edges.

Drawing Upside Down - head pulling down is a wonderful exercise to wake up the right side of your brain. This requires you to draw what you see instead of relying on your memory to draw something.

Negative technical design - This technique teaches you to correctly see the space "white" or "negative" in his image. Instead of taking the positive part of the drawing with the line, you draw the shapes that surround the positive part of your design.

Dry wash technique - This technique works great if you want to cover large areas of your drawing. It creates a nice smooth tone. You start by adding the marks with a pencil or apply some graphite powder to the desired area on the paper. Then, using a tissue or soft cloth to catch some graphite and gently rub on paper, almost as if you were painting.
