Dear Akriti, keep experimenting with the colors. read the color chapter and design princples chapter from the book. try to use those concepts while coloring.

try doing as said above. next assignment is to answer the mock test 2 freehand drawing question and submit the same by 20th nov. try to implement all the skills you have learnt so far. the assignment will be evaluated for 50 marks.























































Your freehand and coloring skills are good. with this performance you can easily score marks between 35-40 out of 50. what we are trying next is to take your skills from good to great.this is your next task. color the boxes using all the poster colors you have. one color per square.scan it and save.(task-1). try giving a gradation effect to each of the squares on top of the dried poster color using darker or lighter shade of the same color using crayons. scan and send both the jpegs by 17th nov. i want to see a 3 dimensional coloring effect in each of these squares.
































































































Good Job. go through the feedback and try incorporating it .




































































































































Dear akrti,

































you should keep the final drawing look clean and neat. no shabby coloring, no incomplete illegible outer lines, no missing lines. since you are using poster colors you require a special strategy to complete the drawing wth coloring in 60 mins. let us do that strategy later, for now try to follow the above instructions. next assignment is to color all the free hand drawing assignment you have done so far. color each freehand drawing in atleast 2 different color cominations that you have not used before. submit them by 16th otober.





































How much time have you taken for coloring the one above with poster colors?Also go through the colour chapter from the book. read about the color combinations and please recolor this pattern using atleast 4 different poster colors. come up with 3 different color combinations ( so 3 assignments). try to keep the total time within 30 mins for each coloring assignment. submit the assignment by 13th october.




you could have erased the grid before darkening the lines with sketch pen. now lets move onto the coloring part. color the above assignment in 3 different mediums you are comfortable with and submit the 3 drawings by 6th of nov.





Dear Akriti, you are doing a great job. am very happy with your progress. Keep up your good work. please redo the above assignment, draw good dark crisp smooth flowing lines. if you pass that assignment we wil go to the next stage- coloring the drawing.

umesh





Please submit the above 2 assignments by 16th of september. Focus on proportion and line quality.



good. next time use a black sketch pen.









































good Job. now, can you darken the freehandlines with a black sketch pen and resubmit the drawing again? make sure the lines you redraw with sketch pen are neat & crisp






















































































































excellent. please do the next assignment and submit by 16th August








































Proportions have come out good. Now focus on the smoothness of the lines. Make sure the color intensity of line is uniform though out the drawing. Do the corrections and submit the image by August 1st. - Umesh

Dear Sir,

I cannot find the topic on free hand sketches. And this link dqlabs-tutorials.blogspot.com has only human stick figure topics covered. Could you please let me know as to where I can find it?

Thank you,
Akrti

Dear Akrti,

We have sent you 3 sets of books. in those books you can find a chapter on Freehand Drawing. you need to study that and attempt the pattern given and send a scan of it back to us. Incase you have not got the books please send a reminder mail to student@dqlabs.in mentioning the same.

regards

Dear Sir,
These are some common points I observed:

1. Proportion and similarity of the drawing. Close observation of lines with respect to grid.

2. Even and smooth lines.

3. Never leave an empty space at the background of a theme sketch.

4. Over all perspective, 3D effect of the sketch needs to be taken into consideration.

5. Even application of colour.

6. Interesting colour combination.

7. Outlines should be drawn using 2B or B pencils.

8. Colouring at an angle of 45 degrees, or along the shape of the curves.

9. Clear and neat human figures should be drawn.

10. Shading and hatching should be done to add volume to the sketch.


Your's sincerely,
Akrti
