Transcript of Draw a face.

DRAW A FACE Drawing is a form of visual expression and is one of the major forms within the visual arts.It is one of the simplest and most efficient means of communicating visual ideas. The relatively easy availability of basic drawing instruments makes drawing more universal than most other media

Drawing makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium.
Common instruments include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, various kinds of erasers, markers, styluses An artist who practices or works in drawing may be called a draftsman or draughtsman The most common support for drawing is paper, although other materials, such as cardboard, plastic, leather, canvas, and board, may be used.Almost all draftsmen use their hands and fingers to apply the media There are several categories of drawing, including cartooning. Overview A quick, unrefined drawing may be called a sketch. Drawing is often exploratory, with considerable emphasis on observation, problem-solving, and composition. Drawing is also regularly used in preparation for a painting
It is not known when art or drawing was established.
Sketches and paintings have been produced since prehistoric times, as demonstrated by cave and rock paintings.
By the 12th to 13th centuries A.D., monks were preparing illuminated manuscripts on vellum and parchment in monasteries throughout Europe When paper became generally available, from the 14th century onwards, artists' drawings, both preparatory studies and finished works,
became increasingly common.
Prior to working on an image, the artist will likely want to gain an understanding of
how the various media will work.
Ink drawings typically use hatching, which consists of groups of parallel
Cross-hatching uses hatching in two or more different directions to create a
darker tone.
Broken hatching, or lines with intermittent breaks, is used to form lighter tones, and by controlling the density of the breaks a graduation of tone can
be achieved.
Stippling, uses dots to produce tone, texture or shade.

Sketch drawings use similar techniques, although with pencils and drawing sticks
continuous variations in tone can be achieved.
For best results the lines in a sketch are typically drawn to follow the contour curves of the surface, thus producing a depth effect. Techniques History INSTRUMENTS A ruler can be used both as a straightedge and a device to compute proportions.
When attempting to draw a complicated shape such as a human figure, it is helpful
at first to represent the form with a set of primitive shapes.
Almost any form can be represented by some combination of the cube, sphere, cylinder, and cone.
Once these basic shapes have been assembled into a likeness, then the drawing can be refined into a more accurate and polished form. The lines of the primitive shapes
are removed and replaced by the final likeness A more refined art of figure drawing relies upon the artist possessing a deep
understanding of anatomy and the human proportions.
A trained artist is familiar with the skeleton structure, joint location, muscle placement, tendon movement, and how the different parts work together during movement. This allows the artist to render more natural poses The illumination of the subject is also a key element in creating an artistic piece,
and the interplay of light and shadow is a valuable method in the artist's toolbox.
The placement of the light sources can make a considerable difference in the type
of message that is being presented. Papers can vary in texture, hue, acidity, and strength when wet.
Smooth paper is good for rendering fine detail, but a more "toothy" paper will hold the
drawing material better. Materials The basic tools are a drawing board or table, pencil sharpener and eraser, and for
ink drawing, blotting paper.
Other tools used are circle compass, ruler, and set square

Materials =pencil or crayon, pencil sharpener, ruler, eraser, sheet or canvas   

Collocation= on easel or slanted table ,you sitting on a chair How to draw a face Step 1: Draw the circle while watching your subject    Step 2:Divide the circle  Step 3: Watch out! Draw with the proposition of the    face thinking to a face, so give it an oval-like form Step 4: Divide the head in three parts Step 5: Between the first and the second part you draw the eyes. The distance between the eyes should be 44% of the face in  horizontal. You can draw the eyes in different ways. For example, you can draw almond eyes. after draw the circle you draw lines that going up Step 6: Draw the eyebrows in the second part. You can draw the eyebrowns in different ways. For example you can draw the eyebrowns like a big bow Step 7: Draw a nose .For example, you can draw a small nose. begins draw the tip and establish its length Step 8: Draw the mouth in the third part. The corners of the mouth at rest must end where pupils  end Step 9: Draw the ears. The ears are drawn in the space between the mouth line and the eyes. Step 10:Draw the hair. The hair start at the end of a high forehead. You can draw long straight hair like draw a lot of thin wire Step 11: Revise the good lines, and eliminate the imperfections using an eraser final result video video
