Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Proportion and distortion, part of Illustrator for Non-Illustrators.
- [Instructor] A lot of people get hung up on…drawing because they think the point of drawing is…to recreate reality and the style…has to be distinctly real.…Meaning proportions must associate with that reality.…Frankly I find realism a bit boring myself.…It's a good goal if you want to improve your craftsmanship…but it isn't the point of drawing.…In truth drawing can take any form be it realistic or…stylized and by distorting proportion…create more engaging visuals.…
So in this movie we'll let reality be the spark of our…inspiration, but we won't let real life proportions…dictate our drawing of it.…So let's get started.…Now this is a photograph of Steve Austin,…a big time wrestler, and I first want to show you a…perfect example of distorted drawing.…Now this is a photograph of this person Steve Austin,…and it's okay from a photographic point of view…but check out this amazing illustration.…
C.F. Payne is one the the great American illustrators…of our time and he drew this portrait of the wrestler…Steve Austin he didn't let realistic proportions limit him.…
