Keep drawing or I'll run you over

       Two artist I know Kod & James just started a blog/FB art page 
            so give them a FB like or a blog follow so say Hi :)

Form 05

These planes will not be dealing with light sources - I will get into that later. 
This post will help with getting to know irregular things like convex and concave
surfaces, and relative proportions. 

Here's some helpful basic exercises to get your brain used to
drawing on the illusion of a plane.

(A) Draw some relatively basic block objects, then use a red pen to 
draw straight lines across their planes. Try to get the feel of the planes.  

(B) Draw some basic objects and boxes.  Then draw/graffiti on them. 
Try to imagine that you're drawing on a surface in that plane's perspective. 

(C) Again draw some basic objects then try to draw other objects 
coating the surfaces like rocks, leaves, hair and any other
objects you can think of. 

(B) (C)
I found it helpful to draw a range of planes on three heads, 
each had a different number of planes, low to high:   

(1) simple (2) moderate  (3) complex

Then I did a study of the skull from my skeleton, referencing the range 
of planes from the heads in the picture above. 
I turned the object I was drawing (skull) into simple planes,
looking at the heads to remind me to draw the right amount of them.

This can help with learning how to break down round shapes into flat planes.  

This exercise will help your planes and proportions of your 
imagination work.

(A) construct a monster/person then draw the planes over the construction (red).
Then draw over it with black pen using the planes to guide your drawing.
Imagine you're drawing on a 3D low poly model 
Then when you get good at that, try (B)

(B) this is like like (a) but you don't draw over it, instead you
draw your image beside it and use the drawing with planes as reference.
If you found that easy, try putting the constructed plane image away 
and try it from memory. Good luck!
