"The shortest way to realism"

I made a series of videos-exercises, so that anyone can learn to draw realistically.

You can already achieve some realism after the 4th exercise!

These 4 exercises provide a strong foundation to start from, after that only the sky is the limit.


Exercise 1

Video

Tip: Before you start with the first exercise, you can draw the reference picture of Task 4 (Bruce Willis) and at the very end, when you will be drawing the same reference picture in task 4, you can compare how much you have improved!

Required tools:

Printed reference picture, 2 plein papers, a graphite pencil and a ruler.

Brief description of the task:

Grid your reference picture (by halving the distances). Divide the sheet on which you wille draw in the same proportion.

Turn the reference picture upside down and start drawing. It is important not to turn it over before the drawing is complete !!

Tip: You may want to cover the rows that you are not currently drawing and try to move from square to square. In the end, after you turn you paper back to normal, you can correct some small mistakes, but these should be just minor corrections.

It is very important that you only start with the second exercise, if you are happy with it. If you are not, please start over again and again and again.. or try it with the other reference picture.

Reference pictures:


After each exercise, you can submit your best drawing to info(at)primusz(dot)com and I will upload the first 15 pictures here. Please be sure to write down your name and your age.
