My Tip for Accurate Drawings!

Recently, I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to start drawing a lot more. It is something I really enjoy doing, and actually, a really relaxing thing to do in the evenings instead of homework (for a change)! Although I do try to mix up what I do, in this particular example I have drawn a Volkswagen campervan. I don’t know why, but something about them just looks so cool, but also I chose it as I thought it was a good example of a way I could demonstrate my technique! I know it’s not a masterpiece, or 100% accurate, but everybody has to start somewhere, and, after all, I have to start getting some practice in for my GCSE!

Although some of you might have heard of it before, I thought I would share with you a technique that I use to get as good a drawing or sketch as possible. It is pretty simple; I just draw a 2cm square grid over the picture that I am copying, as well as on the piece of paper I’m drawing onto. This way I can see how the shape moves between the squares, and directly translate this onto the paper, which then creates a precise replica of the picture. Although this can’t be used when drawing objects that are in front of me, I do really like to use it when drawing pictures of both people and other objects.

I hope this helps some of you in some way! Let me know if you want me to share other artwork or tips!

xoxo, Liv
