Drawing is one of the most important activities for the right half of the brain, which is the part responsible for imagination, creativity, innovation, understanding of beauty and music. The other half is responsible for arithmetical, logical and linguistic matters. Drawing or focusing on one creative activity is responsible for developing creativity, whereas studies in most schools focus on the left half of the brain. It is therefore great to encourage children to draw which will enable them to develop both sides of the brain.
In this post we will give you some handy tips on how to make paintings or drawings appear three-dimensional by adding depth to appear more realistic, by using coal or any other art supplies.
How to draw a three-dimensional shot by following these top tips
By following these top tips, you will be able to draw an amazing 3D drawing in no-time. Just remember that practice makes perfect. If you persevere, you’ll be able to draw 3D like a pro in no-time.
1. Perfect Precision
Make sure that the outer lines of the drawing are correct and non-volatile. Draw them with confidence and precision. If you are a beginner, you can draw a drawing or a reference image so that the lines are drawn. Once you get used to drawing you will be able to start drawing the lines yourself, and eventually without the need to a reference image and rely on memory and imagination, which comes with a lot of practice.
2. Remember Shadows
If you have noticed cartoon shapes in the stories of kids, you would find them flatter and do not have that many shadows. Remember to add some shadows to avoid getting a cartoon shape.
3. Distance and Shading
It should also be noted that the shadow is darker near the body, and becomes lighter whenever it is away from the body or shape until it fades. If the body surfaces different and in different shapes must imagine the beam of light when touching those surfaces based on the light rays going in straight lines. The surfaces closer to direct light rays are lighter and the surfaces that are lighter or deeper inside the shape are darker.
4. Avoid Clear Lines
One of the actions that you must avoid if you are drawing a realistic drawing is the outer lines, that appear in cartoons. Shapes have to be a single unit that is divided from the inside lines clear and sharp. Lines are lighter so no one sees them, and you have to rely on the gradient of shadows to show the surfaces of the shape instead of separating them with clear lines such as cartoon films.
