What are the characteristics of sketching

In daily life, people are engaged in various jobs and show dynamics that are very different. In order to learn to express people's various dynamics, they should draw more dynamic sketches. The significance of dynamic sketching in painting has the following aspects: First, it can strengthen the understanding of human body characteristics and movement laws, and enhance the memory and dictation ability of human images; second, it can save time, increase the number of sketching exercises, and improve skills. Proficiency; third, it helps to cultivate the ability to summarize, concise, and concisely describe the dynamic characteristics of characters starting from the overall characteristics; fourth, the simple sketching tool is conducive to directly expressing many characters in life. In addition, for those who are new to drawing dynamic images of characters, they should also practice sketching and draw with courage. After a certain amount of observation and painting experience, they can make longer-term sketching exercises, and the progress will be faster. The following describes the form and performance essentials of dynamic shorthand respectively.
Several forms of dynamic sketching
1. Static and dynamic sketch
Static dynamics refer to dynamics that are relatively static for a period of time. For example, people tend to be static when they are sleeping or concentrating on reading. In order to draw dynamic sketches, people are specially asked to make a certain fixed posture, which also belongs to this category. Still dynamic is easier to draw.
2. Regular dynamic shorthand
Regular dynamics refer to the dynamics of characters performing regular and repetitive movements. One is that people’s position remains the same, but part of their limbs are in a cyclical movement, such as knitting sweaters, washing clothes, and pedaling waterwheels; the other is regular movements that people make while they are on the move. Such as running, cycling, planting seedlings, weeding, etc. It is easier to draw regular dynamic sketches with the position basically unchanged. It provides us with the opportunity to observe and capture dynamic features repeatedly. But no matter what kind of regular dynamics, the key is to grasp the representative action moments to express it. Generally speaking, an action is more representative at the beginning or end. For example, when a person is holding a pickaxe and digging the ground, when the pickaxe is lifted to the highest position or the moment it has entered the ground, it is more representative and typical. The moments of movements that are neither high nor low tend to weaken the sharpness and sense of strength of the movement. Describe regular actions performed in fast movements, such as running, riding a bicycle, etc. You can practice dictation based on memory after repeatedly observing the dynamic characteristics of a certain person or certain people; if you can’t draw it down, you can re-observe and Study its characteristics until the drawing is complete.
3. Dynamic shorthand for irregularities
Irregular dynamics refer to dynamics with great chance and rarely repetition, such as playing ball, martial arts, fighting, and sudden movements caused by certain events. It is the most difficult to draw these dynamic images. However, these dynamic images often appear repeatedly in life, such as football players' dribbling, fighting, shooting, and goalkeeper's throwing movements. Be familiar with the various dynamics that appear on the court, and it is easier to paint these dynamic images. Therefore, in order to draw irregular dynamics, in addition to mastering the knowledge of anatomy and the laws of motion, it is also very important to observe the various dynamic characteristics of the characters anytime and anywhere, enrich life knowledge, and experience life in many aspects.
