Multifunctional Center

Posted by archidrawing on February 6, 2011


When i drew this multifunctional center, my first idea was to keep a dominant color as a background, without to respect the realistic details such as blue sky or real trees. I relied on the idea of transformation. So i gave those small thickets a polygonal shape just to make them look unnatural, they are stylized. I only kept the color and some branches to lead you into thinking that those are nature elements. The same principle I have adopted in drawing the trees. Though you cannot see any real tree in this drawing, the branches and the autumn-specific color make you think that they exist. That’s what stylization is about. It represents a specific language to describe a certain element without to offer over-realistic details. When I drew the people, I used the same concept: they do not present details of nose, lips, etc. but I tried to respect the proportions of human body.

Single Family House

Posted by archidrawing on January 4, 2011

This is my first drawing using only indian ink. I drew this using 0.25 mm rotring isograph. I really like how it came out.
Drawing with ink requires much patience (especially when we draw with 0.25 mm isograph on A2 format) and enough knowledge to master the entourages. The main deficiencies of this technique are that we cannot create realistic fades (ex. required at cloud’s shadows), the lines are visible and it is not erasable, these are reasons that this technique is mixed with others. But it also has good aspects such as the possibility to obtain high contrasts and to make your building found in the drawing. Remember that the entourage must be balanced. If we draw too much trees, the building is going to vanish from the sight. Balancing the contrast can also play a major role in this sense. For example, in this drawing, I’ve tried to darken the entourage just to place the building in front. However, mention how the lack of people in this drawing makes the building look “lonely”. Drawing people in an architectural perspective mixed with a well interpretation of the real surroundings can give life to the space. It is said that the windows are the eyes of the building, so if the drawing is well balanced, our first sight should be directed to the windows area of the building. So i think that the black hatch over the window’s glass isn’t a bad idea.
The building represents a single family house. It fits under a style specific to the years between the two world wars.
