HAND SKILLS

HAND SKILLS

It is our creativity that brings us all together here at AFA and later too at our colleges. But is that enough? Are we trying to be just creative people with this whole huge tree of thoughts and ideas inside us? Certainly that defines us apart from many, but that is not enough. There is this whole bunch of people that are a level ahead of us. And yes, these are the people who are not just creative, but also know how to sell! By sell, I do not mean sell literally but sell their idea, make up across with their audiences! I know a lot of you, out there are people with excellent hand skills and that is my point! The importance of skills in a field of art and design. Here, there is immense competition! And the theory of the survival of the fittest is valid too! So, what we are trying to say is that we need to perfect our skills of drawing, of representation of our ideas. It is not so easy to communicate otherwise, thus, the art of good sketching is what we must thrive to attain! And surely, when you go to your future colleges be it NID,NIFT,Pearl, etc. You are going to be taught how to draw even better. But definitely, those who already have a good hand at sketching always steal the show! No matter how many graphic soft wares are made, the hand art will always be required and admired. 

The very act of drawing an object, however badly, swiftly takes the drawer from a woolly sense of what the object looks like to a precise awareness of its component parts and particularities.”     -Alain de Botton

Yes, with practice comes precision and with that the knowledge. Knowledge of the proportions, perspective, angles, depth etc. The great masters of art have also practiced the same. It is truly said about Leonardo da Vinci...

“It is often said that Leonardo drew so well because he knew about things; it is truer to say that he knew about things because he drew so well.”
 -Kenneth Clark

Now is the time for all the aspirants to start working, it is still an year left and sketching is like maths, the more you practice the more your hand gets suited ! Here are some pictures for you to have a clue as to how perfect can sketching be.
