  1. Brenda Hoddinott B-07 BEGINNER: LEARN TO SEE Learning to draw is all about learning to see as an artist. In this project, you transform an egg- shape into a cartoon of a goofy-looking gremlin. You exercise your vision to examine the step- by-step illustrations that demonstrate the various stages of adding the very simple shading. This lesson is divided into the following two sections: ¾ OUTLINING EGGHEAD’S FACE, EARS, AND HAIR: You lightly sketch Grendel on your paper proportionately correct. Proportion is the relationship in size of one component of a drawing to another or others. ¾ GIVING PERSONALITY TO A GREMLIN: You exercise your vision to add shading lines to your drawing. You need to pay attention to whether the shading lines are light or dark, or close together or far apart. Suggested drawing supplies include drawing paper, graphite pencils (HB and/or 2B), kneaded and vinyl erasers, a pencil sharpener, and a sandpaper block. This project is recommended for artists from age 10 to adult, as well as home schooling, academic and recreational fine art educators. 8 PAGES – 19 ILLUSTRATIONS Published by Hoddinott Fine Art Publishers, Halifax, NS, Canada – 2006
  2. -2- OUTLINING GRENDEL’S FACE, EARS, AND HAIR In this section you lightly sketch Grendel on your paper proportionately correct. Proportion is the relationship in size of one component of a drawing to another or others. ILLUSTRATION 07-01 1. Draw an egg-shape. Shape refers to the outward outline of a person or object, and/or its individual parts. Keep your lines very light by pressing very gently on the paper with your pencil (I used an HB). ILLUSTRATION 07-02 2. Add big ears to the gremlin (any shape you wish). ILLUSTRATION 07-03 3. Draw two big circular shapes about halfway between the top and bottom of the egg-shape. Each circular shape represents the iris section of an eye. In humans, an iris is the colored circular section of the eyeball. When you draw circles or circular shapes rotate your paper and look at your drawing from different perspectives. This little trick often allows you find problem areas.

  3. -3- ILLUSTRATION 07-04 4. Draw a teardrop-shaped nose below the eyes. ILLUSTRATION 07-05 5. Add curved lines below the nose as the mouth. Take note of the little downward lines on each side of the longer line. 6. Outline comma-shaped eyebrows above the eyes. 7. Sketch a small circle in the upper right section of each eye as highlights. A highlight is the brightest area where light bounces off the surface of the eye. 8. Draw partial circles as the pupils of the eyes. The pupil of an eye is the darkest circular shape within the iris.

  8. -8- BRENDA HODDINOTT - BIOGRAPHY As a self-educated teacher, visual artist, portraitist, forensic artist, and illustrator, Brenda Hoddinott utilizes diverse art media including graphite, technical pen, colored pencil, chalk pastel, charcoal, conté crayon, and oil paints. My philosophy on teaching art is to focus primarily on the enjoyment aspects while gently introducing the technical and academic. Hence, in creating a passion for the subject matter, the quest for knowledge also becomes enjoyable. >Brenda Hoddinott< Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Brenda grew up in the small town of Corner Brook. She developed strong technical competencies with a personal commitment to self directed learning, and the aid of assorted “Learn to Draw” books. During Brenda’s twenty-five year career as a self-educated civilian forensic artist, numerous criminal investigation departments have employed Brenda’s skills, including Royal Canadian Mounted Police and municipal police departments. In 1992, Brenda was honored with a commendation from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and in 1994, she was awarded a Certificate of Membership from “Forensic Artists International”. Her home-based art career included graphic design, and teaching recreational drawing and painting classes. As supervisor of her community’s recreational art department, Brenda hired and trained teachers, and designed curriculum for several children’s art programs. In 1998, Brenda chose to end her eighteen-year career as an art educator in order to devote more time to writing, drawing, painting, and developing her websites. Drawspace http://www.drawspace.com incorporates her unique style and innovative approach to curriculum development. This site offers downloadable and printable drawing classes for students of all abilities from the age of eight through adult. Students of all ages, levels and abilities have praised the simple step-by-step instructional approach. This site is respected as a resource for fine art educators, home schooling programs, and educational facilities throughout the world.
