Human Anatomy/Drawing Methodology/Manchu

  2. 2. WARNING!!!!THE FOLLOWING PRESENTATION HAS BEEN CREATED PRIMARILY AS ENTERTAINMENT! Thus not all points made in this program are to be taken serious. Which areas you do take into serious consideration is entirely up to YOU!!
  4. 4. PREPARATIONBefore you go on ahead and just start drawing there are many factors one should considerDrawing requires a well trained body, mind and soul!Drawing is actually more dangerous than it lets on, here are a few things you may want to consider before you pick up that pencil
  5. 5. PHYSICAL CONDITIONMany may not know this, but drawing requires intense rigorous physical fitness, not just for control and stamina but also safetyHere are some prerequisites you should achieve before drawing:Bench Press : 200 poundsSquat: 300 poundsA mile run under 6 minutesBeat Ninja Gaiden in 10 minutes
  6. 6. EXERCISE: WORKOUTS TO STRENGTHEN YOURDRAWING BODYDrawing requires every single muscle your body has so here are some exercises you should always do as a warm up to drawing :100 push ups a day100 sit ups a day500 wrist curls with 50 pound dumbbellsA mile runFight a bearPunch through concreteDefeat Gravity
  7. 7. TOOLS OF DRAWING: THE SERIOUS STUFFConsider the kind of drawing you’re doing:A Sketch A Lengthy Drawing
  8. 8. SKETCHSketches tend to be our quick drawings we do on a whim• These are good for actual warm ups to more time consuming drawings• But they also function a good measure of your own drawing intuition• Here’s where you can see what you can draw with relatively little set up or thought• You can also think of these as subjects that are relatively in your comfort zone• Ideas for more refined drawings can be inspired from these
  9. 9. MOVING TO LONGER DRAWINGSLonger drawings tend to take more time not only in the drawing of the picture but also in preparation.Here are tools to consider using when engaging in this kind of drawing• Thumbnails• References• Studies
  10. 10. THUMBNAILSThese are smaller sketches used to set up composition of a drawingThey are good for placing objects in the drawing
  11. 11. REFERENCESImages taken from reality or other material to shape a particular portion of the drawingAlso good practice for sketching as well
  12. 12. STUDIESA Series of sketches on a particular aspect of the drawingIf there is a particularly challenging or important portion of a drawing this can be used to practice that particular portion
  13. 13. THE THREE MODES OF DRAWING: MODE 1Mode 1: Recreational (Calm)Just draw whatever you wantMultitaskA nice way to experiment
  14. 14. MODE 2: SERIOUSMode 2: Serious (determined)The longer drawingNo distractionsChallenging oneself
  15. 15. MODE 3: YOU ARE A WEAPON OF MASSCREATION !!Mode 3: Assault Mode (Intensity to the MAX!)ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK!!Be sure friends and loved ones are cleared from the area
  16. 16. EXERCISES THAT MIGHT ACTUALLY HELP…You can challenge yourself in many ways to help improve your drawings• Draw subjects you’re not accustomed to• Draw on a bus to work on control• Draw with material you’re not used to• If you work small try working large ‘• If you work large try working small• Find a worthy rival and challenge them to a drawing death match• Take drawings you’ve done in the past and draw them again• Draw fan art to see how you interpret other artist’s work
  18. 18. UNDERSTANDING ANATOMYA figure drawing is reflective of how the artist understands the human bodyWhat features do we choose to give attention to, and what do we simplify
  19. 19. WAYS TO STUDY HUMAN ANATOMYBooks:Anatomy booksHow to booksTake a Figure Drawing Class:SessionsWebsites
  20. 20. SIMPLIFYING THE HUMAN FIGUREBreaking down the human structure:Use of basic shapes to structure the figureGesture Drawing: Drawings that quickly capture weight, movement and tension in the human figure
  21. 21. CONTOURLine/OutlineComplex SimplicityCurves
  22. 22. TONEUse of Light Values to push and pull features of the bodyUnderstanding of how light travels over the surface of the body
  23. 23. PARTS AND THE WHOLEThe Human Body is comprised of many recognizable parts• Head• Torso• Hips• Arms• LegsNot to mention each of these parts have their own subsectionHow does one create a singular body out of these distinct features?
  24. 24. GOOD EXERCISETake your favorite comic artistStudy how they approach these problemsWhat do they emphasizeWhat do they simplifyCan you identify what they consider the most important features of the bodyHow do they compare to your ownDo this with lots of artists you know
  25. 25. CRUEL REALITYRealistically speaking:• Understanding the human body in drawing takes years• Drawing requires an intuitive understanding• Even if you logically understand how drawing the figure is done it must be carved into your muscle memory to achieve results
  26. 26. BUT THEN AGAIN…Remember that drawing is a representation of reality through the use of mark and tone• In the end you’re not trying to replicate the human body• You are aiming to create a representation that is recognizable to others• This is what gives us the degree of variation in style• Everyone sees the figure differently• Take what you consider to be the most important parts of the figure and refine those features• Drawing is a continuous process, you will discover new things all the time
  27. 27. MANLY PIKACHU: THE TUTORIALThe Quick 3 step process to drawing a manly Pikachu of your very own
