Hello, my name is Kato!
Today is the third of the four elements of the drawing.
The first time is about “shape”
The second time is about “light and dark” And today we will talk about “materials”.
What do you think of materials when drawing? I think in two parts.
The first is the texture, the texture is rough or shiny, and when viewed with the eyes, when touched by hand, It is sense of touch(tactile).
First of all, what kind of material type. And the other is the color of things.
The color is, for example, “red apple” or “yellow lemon” I think there is a unique color that it originally has,
Not only that, For example, when a red kettle is placed on a white cloth,
the red color looks slightly reflected on the white cloth, When a white cloth is pulled under the red pot, the white cloth is reflected on the red pot, Other things reflected in themselves. As we describe here as “reflected color”,
there are cases where the color is decided in that way. The colors of “intrinsic colors” and “reflected colors” are influenced by the colors that they have and the surroundings. There are two kinds of colors. In the drawing, the theme is material this time,
When describing/drawing material,
for example, when trying to draw the texture using black and white art materials such as pencil or charcoal, There are intrinsic color…
For example, “red” is a color that is considerably darker than expected, and is replaced by black and white. I think it can be replaced with a darker color and a darker color.
In such a way, when drawing intrinsic colors and reflected colors replace black and white. I will draw/describe the texture of the material while being careful about that. I want to give you some examples.
Recently, I have a lot of questions. It is not possible to draw such textures like wood and timber, metal. There was a question that you can draw your hands but the nails are shining and that the texture of these nails can not draw well, When drawing such a thing, I would like to talk a bit about how to think about it . How do you think the texture can be describe? As a result, the pen pressure is also correct,
but in fact the most important thing is whether the painter understand what this material’s texture. You can’t output without input. Let’s focus on how we do. If you have the goal of drawing and expressing the texture of the material,
refine the sensor that senses it. One way is to give an example. I’m from Tamami University of oil painting department,
but there’s a class called “Nihonga”. Although it was a different building, as the grade rose,
it changed from a board to a tatami room, When you open the door, you will hear a mysterious spell from inside.
Like “fluffy fluffy” or “peraperapera” or where?
I mean, something of an emerging religion, a room to brainwash? lol Actually, they are humming with onomatopoeia while drawing. For example, we are trying to draw the thinness of flower petals.
Or trying to draw softness, like fluffy cotton, Well, I think that each is a different theme,
but to express the texture of the material, I propose one way to express it with this onomatopoeia while drawing! For example, I’m drawing and I want to make it look more like this but I can’t Let’s replace it with an onomatopoeic sound,
such as a rough or thin one, or a real “fore-fuzzy”. Why don’t you replace it with onomatopoeia and move your hand while casting a spell?
This is just a few examples of how to distinguish these feelings, For example, metal.
Reflecting reflections on a shiny stainless steel or polished metal surface, A world like that kind of crisp. When I draw metal things,
I try to feel“gorgeous””shining” from them. Like that’s the role of [Esquisse] for me, Such as very soft feeling, black and heavy,
Bright and light etc … In that way, I do [Esquisse] in order to firmly engrave what I feel, what I want to draw this. At that time, cast a spell.
I’m embarrassed in front of the student, so in my head, “Fuffy and fluffy” While you cast the spell and feel the texture, move the tip of charcoal or the pencil.
And another point! Please be careful about the moving speed. For example, like a block or brick that is like a rocky rattled surface.
When drawing such irregularities, The tip of the pencil also increases the pressure, but in order not to have a constant rhythm. Drawing random, In order not to have an even touch,
Going and going here and there,
Just move your hands what you feel/what you want to draw about this material. Move your hand and the tip of the brush as you feel. Of course, just like cotton or felt also entangled at random,
If the orientation is not so aligned, you won’t get the “likeness”. On the other hand, there are some that are better aligned.
In the case of industrial products, for example the gloves.
If the stitches are aligned, the “likeness” comes out, while feeling the material of the various things, It changes the direction of moving the pencil, the pressure, and the speed.
So this feeling of speed It is not the purpose to change the pen pressure.
When you draw something, you don’t use the methodology of having to do this, First of all, I want you to concentrate on what the “feeling” as the input. Therefore, while drawing with strong pen pressure “Gyukyukyu” or “Bishou” or replacing it with onomatopoeia, When drawing a picture, it is quite a lot of onomatopoeia in the person’s head.
Just draw with the speed and pen pressure and follow what you feel from the material. How about proceeding with such a feeling? So I’d like to talk to them while showing them.
For example this “Pumpkin” ” how to draw Pumpkin” has been raised on YouTube,
so I’ll put the link somewhere, so please take a look. When you draw a pumpkin, this surface is rough and uneven,
how to move the brush/pencil when drawing a Pumpkin, or how to move the pencil Please refer to it when you draw a rugged thing. I will put a link.
This is a glass, I drew this on colored gray paper.(colored base) I draw such a motif that “Water was poured into a glass cup”.
I think it would be easier to get an image how much pressure and at what speed are you drawing if you had a look at the video. I’m doing explain while drawing on that video. I would like you to refer to when and how you intend to paint that way. Ah! There are many questions about metal.
I often give housework for my students to draw the metal texture. Key point is “drawing speed” How fast are you moving the touch.
Some are moving slowly and so quickly. I think this video can understand how to draw. Especially, how to move your pencil.
So please pay attention to the speed and pen’s pressure.
This is also interesting. this! “Spoon” It is a little big spoon like eating curry, but it is characterized by a strong contrast, Especially around here?
When you draw this side, the pen pressure and drawing this side that is a concrete method of describing metal.
I think it will be helpful. Apples are often used as an example, but when drawing such an apple, “specific colors and shades” You need to understand what are you drawing now.
you are drawing shadow or a pattern like a streak on the surface of an apple… If you do not make a distinction in your head, shade, unique colors and patterns,
Or reflected color, reflecting Someone that kind of thing is going to be a jumble.
I uploaded “the apple video” twice.
The first apple video about a year ago, After about six months, such a title called “Drawing a strange apple”. This is a revenge.
Both are about 20 to 30 minutes. The actual time it took.
I didn’t do fast-forward, so please take a look.
How do you think while drawing? And pen pressure and speed. I think it will be helpful.
That’s it for today’s video. I have explained third of the four “elements that make up a drawing”.
Next, I would like to talk about the “space”. Please look forward to the next video. Uniatelier upload the lecture video and useful for drawing video every day. If you look at the video this time, specifically what you want to do/draw,
you can find the picture video in a playlist. Please look there.
I would be glad if you could subscribe to the channel and click the good button if this video is helpful. That’s it for today’s video. See you in the next video! Goodbye!
