David Chelsea on Perspective

Perspective study animation
A sideline to David's commercial work has been explorations in perspective. His first book on the subject has been widely praised and is assigned in many art courses. His paintings on spherical objects like globes and bowling balls utilizing a six point perspective method he devised himself are in many private collections, and he has lately begun a new series applying the same method to flat surfaces by map projection.
David is now at work on a second perspective book, which will include a companion disk of computer-generated perspective grids as well as video tutorials on their use.

David Chelsea has written and illustrated several books, including David Chelsea in Love, Perspective!, Twenty-Four Times Two and Welcome to the Zone.

Extreme Perspective! For Artists

Extreme Perspective! For Artists

In this sequel to the classic bestseller Perspective! For the Comic Book Artist, David Chelsea takes perspective to a whole other level—by exploring the most dramatic viewpoints employed by today's artists. Many of these techniques have been carefully guarded secrets for centuries. But David, and his hollow-headed friend, Mugg, make them accessible to a new generation of artists, cartoonists, illustrators, and animators. In Extreme Perspective! For Artists, you'll learn how to
  • Render complicated multi-sided objects in perfect perspective
  • Create accurate shadows and reflections from your own imagination
  • Master the most difficult kinds of curvilinear perspective systems
  • Draw eye-popping images in fisheye perspective
  • Use your computer to create elaborate scenes quicker and more easily
  • ... And much, much more!

Also included is a comprehensive library of perspective grids on DVD, suitable for printing or using with Photoshop and other applications.

David Chelsea in Love

Published by Eclipse, 1993
Reprinted by Reed Graphica, 2003
David Chelsea in Love is the hilariously true story of cartoonist and illustrator David Chelsea's improbable love affair with Minnie, a would-be actress, in 1980s New York. Based in New York City, David meets Minnie on one of his frequent bus trips back (hey, the bus is cheap) to his hometown of Portland, Oregon to spawn. You see, David can't get laid in New York. The only women he meets in New York are art directors-and they know exactly how much an illustrator is paid. But Minnie's not easy. In fact she's profoundly and comically difficult. She's tall, gawky, absurdly neurotic and saddled with an abusive boyfriend. None of this matters to David who believes-against all reason-that Minnie is the only girl for him. This is the true story of their cross-country "courtship," as well as the story of their idiosyncratic cast of friends and relatives. David Chelsea In Love is a strange and very funny look at the lives of the young, the talented, and the semi-talented in New York City's East Village.

Twenty-Four Times Two

Published by Top Shelf, 2008
48-Page Comic Book, 5" x 7 1/2"
The author of David Chelsea In Love and Perspective! picks up Scott McCloud's ball and runs with it in these two 24-Hour Comics stories (out of a flabbergasting eight he's produced over the past few years). In Everybody Gets It Wrong David makes the argument that all autobiographical comics produced so far, definitely including his own, falsify experience because they show the author as one of the characters rather than telling the story as seen from his own eyes. Putting theory into practice, David illustrates a number of dreams from his diary while strictly keeping to the dreamer's point of view. Sleepless takes this method further, telling a richly stippled story of lava lamps, time travel, and a mysterious lady cartoonist in blue velvet, all seen through the eyes of a lead character who is never shown.

Welcome to the Zone

Published by Kitchen Sink, 1995
Out of print but available on Amazon and Ebay.
Bohemian squalor and surreal dark humor combine as the creator of David Chelsea in Love takes you into the lower depth's of Manhattan's most macabre imaginary neighborhood. Welcome to the Zone recounts a day in the life of a mostly mutant cast of ambitious folksingers, scheming developers, flaky performance artists and man eating homeless illegal aliens from the planet Gargon. A complex story of intrigue, passion, ritual murder and sweaty robot sex culminates in a riot at a benefit concert on the hottest night of the year.

Stumptown Preview #5: Curvilinear Grids

More excerpts from the demonstration talk I’m giving tomorrow at Stumptown:
David Chelsea is listening to:
A Hard Day’s Night by The Beatles

I worked out the construction of curvilinear perspective years before I did my first perspective book, but all things curvilinear wound up on the cutting room floor that time. Now, 14 years later, my new book, Extreme Perspective!, includes chapters on curvilinear perspective (which comes in two main types, fisheye and cylindrical), and the accompanying DVD includes dozens of curvilinear grids for those who don’t have the time or inclination to do the construction themselves.
Each grid appears in two versions: a cubic lattice with tiled columns, and a simpler pattern of a cube with squared-up faces.

While many artists will likely use the grids as a background layer in Photoshop, I prefer to print out pale blue versions and sketch over them in pen and ink.

Perhaps my favorite grid of all is this “Oblique Cylindrical” which includes all six vanishing points in a single view.

Working over it results in delightfully loopy panoramas like this one:

mais sobre proporção corpo humano

desenho da cabeça humanacorpo masculino Proporções de referência no desenho de figura humana de pé

Figura de dimensões médias: altura (incluindo cabeça) deve compreender a dimensão correspondente a sete cabeças e meia.
Figura de dimensões ideais: altura (incluindo cabeça) deve compreender a dimensão correspondente a oito cabeças. Transmite ideia de nobreza e elegância.
Figura de dimensões exageradas: altura (incluindo cabeça) deve compreender a dimensão correspondente a oito cabeças e meia. Transmite ideia de heroísmo, utilizado na representação de deuses e super-heróis. Geralmente a dimensão em excesso é aplicada na extensão do peito e das pernas.
Estas proporções podem variar quando o modelo assume outras poses.

Desenhando a partir da vida: Mulheres

    Um dos melhores exercícios para desenhar é a prática a partir da realidade. Usando imagens de revistas, fotos ou até mesmo uma das melhores ferramentes para inspiração, o Google Imagens.

    Nesse post eu darei algumas referências para o desenho do corpo feminino, usando como base fotos de mulheres.

Boneco para designer

Posted by conectblog em 12/03/2009

Artigo feito por Franime!

Pergunta feita por um leitor do blog:
Para que servem aqueles bonecos de madeira vendidos em lojas de desenho?

O manequim de madeira é usado para desenhar poses da figura humana. A pose é definida movimentando-se as partes articuladas do boneco, e, depois, desenha-se o boneco no ângulo desejado. Em seguida “cobre-se” o desenho do boneco com músculos e roupas. É um instrumento bem prático.

Manequim de Madeira

É um boneco próprio para se ter noção do corpo humano , com ele você poderá ver o corpo em diferentes ângulos facilitando assim o desenvolvimento do desenho mangá.

Clique na imagem para ampleá-las

O boneco foi feito com a proporção de 8 cabeças e é possivel fazer várias poses com ele. Até podemos desenhar a pose de uma pessoa pulando! :D

Use um duréx se for preciso para deixar o boneco na pose desejada. Para aqueles que querem aprender a desenhar eu recomendo ter um boneco como este para ir treinando a desenhar o corpo inteiro, dividindo corretamente as partes do corpo e depois disto começar a desenhar o rosto, roupas etc….

Eu mesmo (Franime) comecei a desenhar rostos e depois o corpo , o resultado foi um desastre…. consigo desenhar um rosto mas tenho dificuldade em adapta-lo ao corpo…. comecem de forma correta certamente vocês se tornarão Excelentes Desenhistas.

Desenho do corpo humano

O desenho da figura humana não é fácil.Entretanto é possível simplificar usando o método de figuras em bloco.Esse método associa a relação das partes do corpo com figuras geométricas. Esse tipo de esquema também se vale de linhas de eixo, que ajudam a marcar no esboço a posição do corpo.Assim, sem esquecer as proporções corretas, o desenho sai com mais facilidade.
