Creating Art Textures for Painting & Design : Art Textures: Drawing Wood Grain


One thing often might want to do, especially
if you’re going to get into realistic descriptive kinds of art is you’ll be called upon to simulate
a texture. That is, you know, make a real life looking piece of wood like this one.
This a this a very you know we’d instantly recognize it as wood and the way that you
approach simulating textures at least of this sort is to go by the value. We’ve got light
values here we’ve got dark values here and then the shape of the values and what they’re
made of and this dark value is made up of very a lot of irregular dark lines. So that’s
what we’re going to try to do in the work so I’m just going to lay down some charcoal to give myself a base because
I usually work better this way. Then I’m going to kind of smooth it out so that I don’t have
the charcoal marks so much. Now what I’m going to try to do is I’ve got this this eye of
the wood so I’m going to erase that in and by doing it this way instead of drawing it
you can get the more you don’t want you know none of this is outlined. So if you start
with the tone and erase out of it you can work, you can sort of avoid that problem of
the outline. So I’ve already got kind of this jagged flaming happening then I can come back
in with my charcoal and you know start working around with these lines that I saw. These
irregular lines some of them are close together in this pattern that sort of will create the
flaming of the wood and then here it comes down a little bit in here and then it comes
down here like so and then we have another long one coming in like this but you get the
idea. The idea is to deal with your value contrast and then really get into see what
makes those what makes the texture work.
