Boot Camp

As you go through "Boot Camp," you will understand the conflict between the creative right side of the brain and the logical left side of the brain.

Once you allow the right side of the brain to take over, you can "see" like an artist.

This is an example of a "Boot Camp" exercise in which the viewer is taught to "Scale the Wall!" In this exercise, you will use your pencil to smoothly create six separate values.

Step-by-Step Instruction

Drawing 1 - Little Girl
Step 5 - Hit the Lights

Identify the light direction and look for shadows. Lightly draw the shadows as shapes. Don't tone them in yet.


Smooth Moves

Smooth Moves are Jon's extra tips and techniques to DFN!

"Use a paper stump to BLUR the tones. Leave the subject untouched and it will look more like a photograph because of the tight focus fore ground."
