Rules of drawing

Rules of drawing

Though they're actually more of guidline than actual rules... 1- "1+1=2" That is, if I shade something once and then shade over it again, it will be twice as dark. 2- "The first cut is the deepest." The above rule does not apply to the very first line or shade, since compared to nothing, something is everything. 3- "The eraser is your friend." Erasing is not a sign of failure or inability, it's simply another tool. Perhaps if we changed its name from the eraser to the 'unpencil.' 4- "Darker is darker, unless it's deeper." Shading does two things: it denotes darker colors and it indicates a greater depth from the viewer's perspective. Blac

Well hello there! :wave: Welcome to DA!
Thanks for your comment on my drawing :D I am still kind of considering just redoing the picture but will consider your suggestion first of course :D It's super hard trying to do this one. >.< The reference photo is a 3"x5" full body photo, so doing a close up of their faces without haveing the details to look at is proving quite difficult! >.<

Personally, I always go for feel. If you know the people, you know what they look like- that is, you know what emotions you get when you see them in person. Try to get that same feeling when you see your drawing.If something's not right, change it, and trust your gut. I may have a relatively feng shui approach versus technicality, but it has its place. Have fun.
