What's up everyone and welcome to the club in today's lesson .
We're recording a sketch illustration of a velociraptor .
Now , for this lesson , I'm using a black four B pencil .
We use the side grip using a flat edge of a pencil and start at the very top left side of the page and sketch out a circle .
Starting from the very top .
It's gonna work our way around towards the bottom and then go back up towards the top .
Let's go up to the top of that circle , step up , draw a smaller circle to the socket of the eye .
Let's get a smaller circle inside that top circle .
It's gonna start at the very top .
It's gonna go all the way around back up , go up to the top of that center circle , draw a straight line going out and round out the front of the head , starting up here , curl this out and then down .
Now from the bottom , I'm just gonna curb across and then down on the left side , let's open up the mouth , starting back on the left , just gonna curl this up and then out towards that same length , cur this down and then in toward the bottom of that circle .
Now with the head in place , we're gonna block out the curve of the body , starting from the left side of the head .
It's gonna curve this around the neck , come down in towards the body .
Then from here , I'm gonna curve out and up towards the right and they'll bend the tail going out and down .
Let's add a fold in the center of the neck , starting from the bottom of that circle , curl this out and then down toward that center line .
Let's go to the inside of the neck curl , the body coming down and then out , then you go back up to the top of the head cur the neck going out down and then in , let's connect the bottom of the neck with a curve coming down and back up .
Now , from here , we're gonna round up the top of the body starting from the base of the neck , cur the body going up and pull it all the way down to that center line .
Now we're gonna draw on the bottom of the body starting back on the left for the body coming down round this out and then pull that back up .
I'm gonna add some thickness to the tail .
Let's start on the right side of the body .
It's gonna follow that same curve going around .
I'm just gonna taper this so it gets narrow as you come down to the tip of the tail and do the same thing along the bottom , start from the bottom of the body , close this out and up .
And then again , we're just going to taper this out towards the end of the tail .
Now , the hind legs gonna sit along the back side of the body , starting from the top .
We're gonna sketch an old ball going all the way around towards the bottom of the body and pull it back up towards the top .
Now , from here , we're gonna lay out the bones of the hind leg , starting from the center of that oval to our straight line coming down at the bottom .
It's gonna sketch a small circle , this angle leg going out towards the right from the center angle is out and back and then again , just sketching out a small circle and then the bottom of the leg is gonna curve out towards the right , starting from the center curve this out and then down .
It had a small line going across the bottom of the foot .
Now , with the bones in place , we're gonna add some thickness to the legs .
Let's start on the left side of this circle for this up and then out towards the body round up the inside , go up and in towards the top of that oval .
Let's go back to the bottom cur this down and then out underneath that outside circle .
And then from here curve out and then down towards that bottom line .
Let's go to the right side of that oval cur the light coming in and then down and from the bottom , we'll step up , curve down and then out toward the top of that circle and it's gonna spread the foot out .
So it gets wider as it come out and then down to that bottom line .
Now the left leg is gonna get tucked in underneath the body .
So let's start down here , start with a straight angle line coming down and out sketch in that circle .
And then from that center of that circle angle is down and back towards the heel .
Sketch another circle and then from the outside of that circle , we sketch a line coming down and out towards the bottom of the foot and it will sketch a line going out towards the left .
Now I'm gonna go back and add some thickness to the legs starting from the outside because this in and then up towards the left side of that bottom circle .
And then from here , curve light going out and then up goes up and in behind the body .
Let's move over towards right cur the leg coming down and then out , step up , come out and then down round at the bottom of the leg and then pull that back out .
Let's go over towards the left side and draw on the arms from this seam .
We sketch out a circle with the socket of the arm .
Then from the center angles down and back towards the elbow .
Sketch out a smaller circle .
Let's angle the form coming down towards the left from the center angle this down and out .
And a small circle for the wrist and then from the center of the wrist , a was down and back .
And then again , with those bones in place , we're gonna draw the outside of the arm , starting from the outside goes down and then in , go up to the top , go out and then down to the outside of that circle .
Let's go to the top of that smaller circle .
Cur the form going out and then dam from the bottom curve down and then out .
Now we wanna bend the fingers coming back up towards the body .
So from here , turn this in and then up , keeping this back in towards a hand , draw a straight angle line going up towards the forearm .
Now we're gonna duplicate this section in behind the body on the left .
So let's start with that circle on the side of the body and down towards the bottom curd in and up .
I'm gonna add a little bit of thickness starting from the top because it's up and in behind the body go down to the bottom , goes in and up and from the outside curve down and then in towards the bottom , let's go to the inside of the wrist , draw a straight angle line coming down towards the claw curl that back up and in .
Now when you go back up and draw the back side of the mouth , starting from the tip cur this down and then in behind the jaw , then from the inside corner of the mouth , let's step in to draw curve going around and back down .
Once we're happy with the general proportions of our drawing , we're gonna go back in and lightly erase some of these guidelines .
Now , with this next step , we're gonna go to the tip of our pencil and start tracing out the contours and adding a little bit of detail as we go .
Let's start with the eyes .
So we start by tracing out the inside of the eye and adding a small slit in the center for the people .
We're just adding a little bit more shape to the head as we go .
Just bring the jaw it down a little bit lower .
I'm pulling that back up .
Now it's gonna enhance that seam across and then down .
Yeah , I see that I'm splitting the hand into two claws .
I'm just going back in and just adding some detail to the feet .
And now I'm going in with the side edge of my pencil and adding a deep shadow across the brow , you know , add a deep shadow along the bottom of the body , starting with the head and it's working all way around the neck and then bringing that shadow just underneath the body .
I'm just working my way across the leg on the bottom .
Now , these shadows can be quite rough at this stage .
We're gonna go back and refine them a little bit later .
907.25 --> 1002.96
It's gonna work with the shape from the bottom and just curving them out and then down , just trying to go a little bit thicker along the top and then just filling them out as they come down .
We're just gonna pull this all the way across the tail .
Now going back in with a tip or pencil , just refining the detail and the shadows add some deep curves underneath the eye .
He's adding a few wrinkles along the top edge of the mountain .
Just add the indication of some fangs on the top edge .
And as you get near the end of our drawing , I'll continue to add some more detail and these fine lines to create some texture and that's pretty much it .
There's a sketch illustration of a velociraptor .
