2 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Why does art/design matter?

3 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements What shoe do you buy?

4 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements How about a hand bag?

5 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Knit shirt?

6 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements How about at home?

7 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Where do we start? With a line.

8 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements How to draw a line 1. [Desingers] use different lines for different purposes, but the line type most specific to designers is drawn with an emphasis at the beginning and at the end. This practice anchors a line to the page and gives a drawing conviction and punch. If your lines trail off at the ends, your drawings will tend to look wimpy and vague. To train yourself to make strong lines, practice making a small blob or kickback at the beginning and end of every stroke. 2. Overlap lines slightly where they meet. This will keep corners from looking inappropriately rounded. 3. When sketching, don't "feather and fuzz" your way across the page-that is, don't make a vague-looking line out of many short, overlapping segments. Instead, move your pencil from start to end in a controlled, fluid motion. You might find it helpful to draw a light guide line before drawing your final line. Don't erase your guide lines when the drawing is complete-they will lend it character and life.

13 Draw the following shapes

14 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Draw the two face. Say each part of the face as you draw. If you are right-handed start with the profile on the left of the page; if you are left- handed start with the profile on the right. As you draw the face’s shape say out loud the names of the features: ‘Forehead… eyebrow…nose…lips…chin… neck..’ Read more: 2013/11/six-creative- drawing- exercises/#ixzz3Akoe60eg 2013/11/six-creative- drawing- exercises/#ixzz3Akoe60eg

15 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Draw the following The important thing is to try to forget that you are drawing a human face; instead concentrate on the shapes, lines, angles and patches of light and dark. Don’t think about the facial features, simply explore the details of the picture plain. When you have finished turn your drawing the right way up – you may be surprised at how accurate your copy is.

16 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Draw the following with you non- dominate hand

17 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Drawing with your non- dominant hand (left hand for right-handed people; right hand for left-handed people) is a great way to loosen up your drawing and can often produce some surprisingly pleasing results. The practice of drawing involves studying information visually, processing through the brain and controlling the hand to make marks. When we make pictures with the hand we are not normally used to drawing with the images are less controlled and often more fluid and intuitive than normal.

18 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Negative space (or ground) is the areas of the picture plain that are outside the main subject of the image, the shapes and spaces that define the subject and various elements within your drawing. As an exercise in negative space drawing choose an object or scene with interesting shapes within it. Decide on what appears to be the main area of negative space around the object and try to draw this; try to forget about the subject of the image and concentrate purely on the shapes and angles that make up the picture plain. Drawing negative spaces works in a similar way to the vase/faces and upside-down drawing exercises, helping you learn how to forget about the recognizable objects and features in your pictures and instead focus on a truer representation of the visual world. Utilizing this technique is especially handy for people aspiring to be graphic designers as well as artists, as its implementation is a key component of good design techniques.people aspiring to be graphic designers

26 Digital Art & Design 1 Basics of Art Principles and Elements Kickback - line type most specific to designers that is drawn with an emphasis at the beginning and at the end. Feathering - a vague-looking line out of many short, overlapping segments. Restating – Drawing more accurate line alongside already drawn lines. Negative space - is the areas of the picture plain that are outside the main subject of the image, the shapes and spaces that define the subject and various elements within an image.
