How to draw like a pro- exercising brain

  1. 1. Exercising Your Brain By Christopher Sia www.PencilPortraitMastery.comOur brain has two sides which are the right and left side. The left side of the brain is all aboutanalyzing and verbalizing. The right side is about visual and perceptive. I use both sides of mybrain when drawing. By exercising the right side of your brain, it helps you to see differentlyand produce a better looking portrait.One of the key points in drawing realistic pencil portraits is to have high contrast. A lowcontrast portrait will result in a less realistic effect. This is a common mistake that most peoplemake but yet they do not realize it.In this practice, you will learn to use your right brain to overcome this problem.

  2. 2. Step1: Choose a reference picture that you think has a very high level of difficulty andimpossible to draw.Step2: Print it out and turn the reference picture upside down. Use a paper to cover any part ofthe reference picture randomly. That’s the purpose of this exercise, forget about what you’redrawing. Focus only on what you see, there are only hues and values. Do not turn around thereference picture while you’re doing this exercise.Step3: Start to draw the portrait without the covered part. Once you’re done, uncover the partthat you left and continue drawing it. After finished drawing, turn it around and you will see thatyou’ve completed a drawing with just focusing on hues and values.If you can practice by using your left brain of knowing which individual parts of the personyou’re drawing and right brain to focus on hues and values, you will improve your drawingdramatically.Practice by following from step 1 to step 3. The reference picture should be one that you thinkis really difficult to draw. Finally, You Can Now Draw Like A Master! Click Here Now Copyright © PencilPortraitMastery.com All Rights Reserved
