If you like fast cars and want to know how to draw one then this is a great drawing video which allows you to follow one particular artist sketch a Ferrari Scuderia in time lapse.
This video acts as a guide for you to follow the steps of how a car is drawn and to follow the progression from start t finish. The sketch artist begins by drawing the basic geometric shape to gather the rough size and perspective of the Ferrari. Once this light pencil work has been drawn onto the paper the shell of the car is drawn in using a series of guidelines to establish the proportions.
Once the linear pencil work is drawn (possibly using a HB pencil) the artist then moves on to establishing the individual components which create the make up of the Ferrari. As a beginner to art this video will help you see the initial stages which are undertook to fulfill the dimensions of the supercar as well as offering good visual insight into how the various panels are shaded and rendered to get to the final design.
There are many different ways to take on the drawing of a car but this video definitely ticks the boxes for producing a well detailed and proportioned pencil sketch of one.

In this tutorial the artist uses a variety of mediums including, watercolor, pencil, pen, charcoal and acrylic to compose a painting which through male and female interaction and an explosion of colors shows the eternal denial which we as humans possess and take through life with us.
The painting is time lapsed but offers a fantastic insight into how a painting consisting of various layers and different mediums in undertaken from the beginning to the end. The artist begins with a medium sized rounded brush making sure all the major areas of the male face are covered but it is her use of vivid colors and intentional application with the inks and watercolors which allow the painting to take form very quickly. Further dousing with a larger sized round brush takes her into the corners and surrounding areas of the male and female face with yet more striking colors which starts to tie the painting together with marvellous consistency and intention.
She achieves her finer detailing through the use of watercolor crayons, pencil crayons and pen but it is the way she keeps her style loose and breezy by navigating evenly around the page which allows for her painting to retain a feeling of completeness. This is a great tutorial to learn from and a fine example of how a whole wealth of mediums can come together in harmony with the right application and composition.
With a preliminary sketch in his book, Naismith marks out and designs his drawing from which he wants to base his oils painting.

A wonderful video shown in time lapse. The artist Zacher-Finet showcases her talent in creating abstract art on a large canvas. She begins by applying black paint with a large brush to create a swirl pattern which then forms her basis for the entire piece. She then works into the canvas with palette knives, spatulas and various brushes to create a very contemporary and fresh piece of artwork. With abstract art I’m still not sure whether it is better to know if the piece is based on anything whatsoever or nothing at all…I suppose that is up to the viewer and the artist themselves.
This artist has produced a time lapse video to present to you how he takes on drawing of a wolf. His selected mediums for this picture are chalk pastels and pastel pencils which enable much finer detail as you have a sharper point and greater control.
The artist begins with a very loose application of base colors in only a few shades before advancing with the black chalk to start adding bolder areas of coverage. He uses short stout strokes with the pastel to imitate the lie of the fur and has his finger ready to smudge and blend in the appropriate places. The eyes are the show stoppers in this drawing with their incredible detailing and realistic look. This is where the pastel pencils really come into play. Do you think you can do the same?

Califonia sculptor Adam Reeder shows via this time lapse sculpting tutorial how the eventual form of the human head can be achieved in clay in under 50 minutes.
Watch as Reeder goes back and forth on key features slowly building up the cheek and head whilst at the same time maintaining and adding detail with his trowels to the eyes, nose and mouth. Clay is a very manipulable substance so it’s easy to go back and amend errors, the hard part is actually having an eye for detail the first time around and be able to move onto the next section which Adam so excellently does.
Trowels, knives, spatulas and his own hands were all used here so be sure to make sure you have the right kit to get started with. Enjoy.
