FIRST ASSIGNMENT STEPS ON PRODUCING AN ATTRACTIVE SKETCH

  1. 1. SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE, BUILDING AND DESIGN FOUNDATION IN NATURAL BUILD ENVIRONMENT NAME:HWANG WEI LI STUDENT ID NO: 0319756 WORD COUNT: 916 ENGLISH 1 (ELG 30505) WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT 1: PROCESS ESSAY LECTURER: CASSANDRA WIJESURIA SUBMISSION DATE: 2ND MAY 2014 STEPS INVOLVED IN PRODUCING AN ATTRACTIVE SKETCH
  2. 2. When people mention about sketching or students were ask to sketch a subject, most of them would probably shake their head or sigh because they don’t have any idea about what is sketching was or the definition of sketching. Now, let me explain to you, sketching is actually a quick drawing of something that we observed from our surrounding. Sketching enable us to capture essentials of subject without appearing to be labored or overworked. Purpose of sketching is to record something that we see, record or develop an idea for later use as well as it is a quick way if graphically demonstrating an image, idea and principle. Methods used in producing a sketch include understanding, required materials, choosing a subject, attention or caution while sketching and finalization of sketching. While, let us begin with the first step in sketching, which is the understanding. I think understanding is the most important aspect in whole work because if we don’t understand the goal of sketching, it means we are wasting our time doing meaningless sketching rather than sketching a subject related. Goal of sketching is important because you must know what exactly do you want to show or to convey to the public of what you have visualized in your mind or in you real life. After you have decide what to sketch, you have to focus on that subject that you are going to sketch by getting more details related to that particular subject. You can take extra note on the small details like the texture, color, size, perspective and expression (if any). You don’t have to draw exactly detailed of the subject or scene, but you have to allow the people to visualize and understand your sketch that you are going to draw, this is the important reminder so that public can see clearly and easier to be understand your sketch later. Then, you should start to measure the proportion of the subject, for example, the height of a human body compare to the building in your perspective.
  3. 3. Certain artist presses the thumb on the body of pencil to measure the length of object from that distance. After you have done measuring the proportion, then you have to determine the right material to use in you sketch later. One of the most often used materials the pencil. But, there are different types of pencils. “H” type pencils are the hardest pencil. It is use to sketch the thin, straight and non-blend-able lines. You are avoid to press too hard when using this type of pencil because if you use too hard on paper, it is difficult to rub the lead off from the paper and will result in leaving a mark which will affect the next procedure. The assortment available is 6H, 4H and 2H. While “B” type pencil is the softest pencil. The function is to draw smudged and blurry lines for shading sketch. The assortment available 6B, 4B and 2B. Next is the paper. Most common type is the fine art paper because it has a bit a texture which allow it to be the easiest time sketching and come out with the best overall appearance than the printer paper which is thin and doesn’t hold the pencil sketch type well. After gather all the required materials for sketching, you can start to sketch. During the process of sketching, some cautions need to be taken so that you can produce a prefect sketch with minimize mistake done. To see clearly on what you are sketching, you must sketch in a bright and comfortable environment. Then, you can start sketching, when you start your sketch you should use a light hand and lots of short, quick strokes. This will make it easier to test out different ways of drawing a particular object, and will allow you to erase mistakes much easier as well. First, you have to find the light source by locating the primary light source to determine when to sketch the lightest and when to sketch darkest, if you are sketching the scene, you can capture the picture of it, so that you can refer to the picture for more details on which subject or place of the scene is the light focus on most and least. Next, you
  4. 4. can look for any movement, whether the actual movement from real life subject or perceived movement in an image, determining movement in subject will determine the shape or direction you make your sketch strokes. These are the steps that involved in producing a basic sketch. Actually sketching can be simple and yet is an effective way for self-expression. It is also a field that you and me can express our talent in drawing nor sketching .sketching is an invaluable tool that can develop person’s observational skills and sometimes relieve stress of working or studying . it is a personal way to capture the image that you see in your surrounding, and through sketching, you can put in the natural elements in an effective way. Like through a final drawing related to natural awareness topic, you can draw in the natural elements like animals or plants to show more about natural awareness. In my opinion and to conclude this essay, to produce an attractive sketch, you must try to minimize your mistakes and fixed your weakness and the most important of all, not only sketching, but also other work or things that you are doing, you need to practice always as practice makes prefect.
