REBECCA KIMMEL'S Anatomy Review
003: SHADING TUTORIAL AND HUMAN SKULL EXERCISE





REBECCA KIMMEL'S Anatomy Review 003: SHADING TUTORIAL AND HUMAN SKULL EXERCISE

Welcome to the inaugural thread of Rebecca Kimmel’s Anatomy Review. Hopefully this will be one of many "tutorials" that I will be writing about the core concepts concerning drawing the human figure in an artistically anatomical way.

But first let me tell you a bit about myself -- I graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design having studied Illustration. I studied under the popular teachers Harry Carmean, Burne Hogarth, and Steve Huston among many others. I have always had the interest in teaching figurative drawing and artistic anatomy, and I am thankful to Roberto Ortiz for presenting me with this unique and special opportunity. So bear with me as this is a fledgling teaching attempt

So bring your drawing pads, sketch books, your wacoms and your pencils & pens, and let’s start drawing.


Part III: SHADING TUTORIAL AND HUMAN SKULL EXERCISE

Shading is about seeing images / life in terms of black, white, and all the grays in between. A very common mistake which beginning artists tend to make is to jump straight into color with very little understanding of what lies behind color: VALUE. A deep understanding of VALUE is one key concept which separates a beginning artist from an experienced one. So it’s time to delve into an understanding of VALUE and what components make it up.

SHADING is made up of 5 key components:

  1. Highlight – Where the Light Source hits the form or figure directly – the brightest area on the form or figure
  2. Form ShadowThe General Shadow cast over the form or figure – the Darkest Part of which is the Core Shadow
  3. Core ShadowThe Darkest part of the Form Shadow
  4. Cast ShadowThe Shadow cast by the form of figure on the Surface Plane (floor, table, etc.) upon which the form or figure is sitting / standing
  5. Reflected Light – The light bounced back onto the form or figure by the Surface Plane (floor, table, etc.) upon which the form or figure is sitting / standing
THE HUMAN SKULL will start off our first ANATOMY lesson in this LESSON series.

You may choose to do a drawing of THE HUMAN SKULL using the below Reference photos, or you may choose to find REFERENCE OF YOUR OWN. If you use your own Reference, please post YOUR REFERENCE OR A LINK TO YOUR REFERENCE ALONG WITH YOUR DRAWING.

Mandible of Skull

Fetal Skull

FINAL NOTES:

So that’s it. Go now, pick that sketchbook up, and practice drawing the HUMAN SKULL using the SHADING TECHNIQUES outlined in the TUTORIAL BELOW. My advice is to do several and then pick the best to post here.

YOU HAVE ONE WEEK TO POST YOUR BEST PIECE(SHADED HUMAN SKULL DRAWING).

GENERAL RULES:

Once I have posted my lesson it will be your turn:
  • Post a drawing based on the topic or body part covered in this lesson. You may use a model (preferred) or photo reference.
  • A couple of times a month, a new thread will be posted on theWIP/Critique: 2D, Illustrations and Concept Art called:REBECCA KIMMEL'S Anatomy Review [ID]: "Thread Title"



    For example:



    REBECCA KIMMEL'S Anatomy Review 003: GESTURE SHADING TUTORIAL AND HUMAN SKULL EXERCISE



    This will be the CORE thread, created by Rebecca Kimmel, where the lessons will be posted along with the FINAL pieces done by the participants.
  • This will be the only thread where artwork will be posted. Comments WILL be allowed on the thread.
(In short, when an artist wants to show his or her drawing based on the lesson, he or she just has to post a reply to the thread.)

Each entry will have:
  • An original piece done after the topic has been picked.
  • The artwork done by the participant based on the latest class.
And some more rules:
  • All artwork must have the following words written on them: (c) 2005 YOUR NAME
  • At the end of the week, I will pick up to 4 pieces of my choosing and will review them. My advice: KEEP IT SIMPLE
  • You are encouraged to use MODELS but if you cannot you can use PHOTO reference.
At the end of the week, I will pick up to 4 pieces of my choosing and will review them. My advice: KEEP IT SIMPLE.

All text and images posted on this lesson are © 2005, Rebecca Kimmel. Good luck!

-Roberto and Rebecca

*****EDIT: Note to those who are interested:

The following article describes the difference between Desaturation and Grayscale:

Please note that where I have said "Desaturate your image" in the tutorials, I should have said to "Grayscale" them. Thanks.
