    Making objective strokes when you draw

    I'm trying to get in the habit of drawing the way i paint too. It seems to have a nice affect and it gives me control.

    Does anyone have any advice on training yourself to draw objectively? (More single strokes.. Being less reliant on the eraser and following through longer with lines.)

    My objective is always clear when I stroke. huuur


    Having an understanding of what your drawing and being able to simplify it, and that just comes from practice.

    So you are looking for better line quality? For longer strokes, use your shoulder more to draw. Wrist for more details.



    If you want to see things more objectively, here is one useful method in construction. Measuring out all the angles, forms, and values last.

    Hope this helps.

    A friend of mine is an art instructor at BYU Idaho and he has come up with a very cool measuring technique that helps you get accurate proportions in your drawing. You can take a look at www.accurasee.com. He uses the technique in all his work and he is a pretty awesome artist. There are short videos on the website where you can see how he uses it. Hope you take a look and good luck!
