Demonstrations done knowing the shape of, identifying it, then detailing it…

Here is just a little preview, of video below showing what a difference it makes when you know the shape of face before you draw it. All of these crisp, bold outlines that look like computer coloring pages are not and were drawn by me, were made by technical pencil, scanned and enhanced until it shows just like it does on my original hard copies.

I have a few more to scan. Then, I will be done. But, don’t worry I will provide a link on this page showing scans of drawings, in the drawings gallery, the new additions on them, shaded in, completed, after these. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed making them.

The lines are definite, bold, shape of outlines enough to look like they were done in pen, or they are made coloring pages on the computer. But, they are not and I have also provided the original pic drawn from. Also, the drawings are the same size as the original pic, if not is because of cropping. But, the original image before scanned, is the same size as the original pic. Whether it is the size of a thumbprint (smaller than a thumbnail), to a one-two paged drawing of a person.

No matter how big, they show a difference of how identified, exactly drawn, the original person intended to be drawn is drawn, according to shape-which, I have described each one.

For the first two examples: The Carter Brothers (Nick & Aaron):Nick has a slightly rounder, wider shape and Aaron’s is more long-angular.

The second example being Aly & AJ:Aly has a rounder, wider shape AJ, has a longer flatter one. These are two brief examples shown of some of the characteristics describing the shape of each person and how they shape, identify them, with more of a definite outline.

Even with the smallest amount of detail, abstraction from the original, if you can still identify the person by shape, it is drawn identified, 100% by shape, these being examples of showing how, using a technical pencil 2-7H.


As you can see, if you sketch in the detail, notice how much cleaner, crisper it is drawn-especially within the shape of face. Now, originally all of these scans didn’t show up like this. But, I enhanced it so you can see it. I drew it in not just a regular pencil, an even much lighter, technical pencil and it barely showed up, but was there. Don’t they look like coloring pgs? That’s what coloring pgs are-outlines.

As children we identify within the outlines and when we get older, break out of the border. But, bold outlines, help guide identify where and how to place, draw detail in shape more so. I did just that, then you can go back in and add detail. As you can see even before I shade it in, the detail of each person. Because the lines much crisper, clearer are more definite, identifiable and that’s what you want to do when drawing a shape of face.

Otherwise, the outline of shape, shape itself and its dimension all together, will be undetermined, indefinite and will be drawn as someone noticably to somewhat similar, misinterpreted, unintentional. It makes such a difference when knowing the shape, planning sketching it, then adding detail rather than doing a period of trial and error drawings.

Don’t get me wrong, experience, practice is good. But if you know what, specifically who is drawn, you can be able to identify with it, demonstrate just that and make other people identify see exactly who it is. There are also several more pages after this if this has peaked interest.  I am also adding more faces/additions of others in the process as you may notice some do not have a link yet. So, thanks for reading.

About keh1016

I am going to Greenville Tech, majoring in Design, have thought and studied technical, analytical, full-proof methods/techniques for 20 years on the subject and consider every angle before publishing my posts. Then, utilize them in a fun, personal way using engaging activities critical thinking, up close and personal level on the subject-even using my own pictures for a comparison, on the subject of faces. Face it-when it comes to drawing the people, study compare and draw or utilize in a different way. Hey, use it or lose it right? Also, you can contact me via comment or the tumblr page available on the bottom menu. Thanks for visiting.

  4. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.


  5. I carry on listening to the news bulletin lecture about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the most excellent site to get one. Could you advise me please, where could i get some?
