Ok, you don't believe this - you've tried to draw & what's on your
paper looks nothing like what you see. And portraits... well, you'd
rather not even think about those!
The easiest way to draw is by using angles to check that your drawing
is accurate. Every line you draw has 3 angles you can check it with.
Here's how you check..
1. Find a
relatively straight line on the object you're drawing.
Looking at the object, hold your pencil up against the straight line,
paralleling it with the straight line of your pencil.
2. Bring your
pencil down to your paper, keeping the same angle.
3. Using a 2nd
pencil, draw the line at the correct angle.
4. Find a 2nd
relatively straight line on your object -
draw it using the same procedure.
>5. Find a 3rd
line that intersects the 1st 2 lines you drew.
Draw this line the same way, using it to check the accuracy of the 1st
You should be able to gauge the correct length of the lines by this
The 3rd line can be imaginary as well as an actual line in your drawing
what's important is that you create a triangle with the correct angles.
3 correct angles = correct drawing.
Finish your drawing the same way, drawing, then checking your angles
with a 3rd line.
