This helps them keep track of their work and ensures thatthe end result perfectly reflects what was in their mind. There area lot of ways of drawing and a lot of steps to try but here is themost basic step by step process that a lot of professionals andtutorials suggest.Start with Shapes and LinesDon't worry about the detail of the person's clothes or howtheir eyes will look. First you want a perspective of their shape,how they are posed, and the general outline of their body. To dothis, use basic shapes like circles, rectangles, and triangles. Acircle or an egg can represent a human face and then their body canbe done with a rectangle. Focus on their size, the way the limbsare positioned, and the general shape of your drawing.When doing the basic outline, make sure you are using faintlines. A hard pencil like an will be perfect.

Take your and start going over the outlines to addin the details of your drawings. This is the stage where you add inthe eyes, the curve of the lips, and the general outline of theirclothes.Keep it all simple. Don't focus yet on the shading, lighting, orany emphasis on the details. Don't worry about adding complex linesto their clothes or edges to their faces. Just add in the importantstuff for now.Adding EmphasisFor many this can be the third and final step. Use a good eraserlike a rubber eraser or Blue Tac. Never rub your eraser on thepaper to make changes. Doing so only takes off the upper layer ofthe paper and can ruin the quality of the page.

Women Handbag Ideas 2.0
Everyone knows that one woman who always seemsto look great, even with seemingly banal outfits, making it seemlike they were specifically made for them. It seems like they makeperfect fashion sense. But what can be the reason for this? A lotof women still do not accept just how important accessories are onthe outfit, and what is likely is that that one person is payingjust as much attention to the accessories as she does to the actualclothing she wears. In fact, one single, simple accessory can trulybe the difference maker that can turn what is a common outfit andone that looks really great. One type of accessory that is fairlysimple to use is a handbag.The process that goes into choosing a handbag can be morecomplex that one would think. Your choice should be made accordingto your body type and outfit. There are several different types ofhandbags, which include:Hobo bag - A small shoulder bag shaped like a crescent moon.Pouch - A bag that is small and soft.Baguette - A long a rounded bag. Its name comes from thebread.Tote - A bag with an open top. It usually has traps orhandles.Clutch - A small, handheld bag that is mostly used as eveningwear.Satchel - A large handheld bag.Messenger - This large, soft bag has long straps that often goacross the body.Field bag - This shoulder bag has a flat top. The way of closingit is what differentiates these.Cigar box - The name may not be too nice, but it is just a hard,boxy, small box.Duffle - A tall shoulder bag. It is usually wider in thetop.A common question is just how big (or small) should the bags be.The trick is to look for a bag that is actually an opposite of yourown figure. If you are tall and thin, then a rounded bag is likelywhat you should aim for. If you are a bit more rounded, thensomething like a clutch is the best choice. A rectangular bagshould do just fine. However, do not try too hard. You need to playwith proportions since a very petite woman should not use a hugebag. Play up with perception here and you should be able to do justfine.But it is not only about the size. Another thing you need tomake sure you get perfectly right is the length. If you want toaccentuate a part of your body, then having a handbag near it willsure attract some attention to it. If you use a short handbag nearthe chest are will make it look larger (in care this is what youintend, it is an easy "solution"). If you do not want to accentuatethis area then something with longer straps may be ideal for you.While fashion is important when looking for nice handbags, youshould by all means feel comfortable. If you are not comfortableand the bag is hurting you, then it does not matter how good it maylook: it is a waste of money.

3D Small Floor 2.0
Small home floor plans don't have to look orfeel small. Consider, for example, the open space concept versusindividual traditional rooms. Open space floor plans can feellarger than their actual size. Floor plans with interior views,rooms not constricted by four walls, tend to give the feeling ofspaciousness as well as provide the added benefit of visualinterest. This type of floor plan will generally tie togetherdifferent spaces within the home. A view of interior spaces enabledfrom open floor plans achieves the added benefit of not feelingclaustrophobic.Double Duty AreasBuilding big just to allow for lots of furniture or functions thatwill not always be needed may not make economical sense. A bettersolution would be to incorporate into the plan double duty roomsand areas. There may be many activities taking place in one room,separated only by furniture, alcoves, or nooks. One space canaccommodate several different activities, thereby negating the needto have separate rooms for each activity.Children's rooms can become guest bedrooms or home offices asmany more homeowners are now working from home. Each space isdefined by the activities that take place in them. It's a good ideato plan on using adaptable rooms/spaces, each designed to sharevarious functions and, therefore, in use all the time.The Great Room with cathedral ceilings is ideal for largergatherings and on warm summer days can give the feeling of coolnessand breathability. However, you can also break up this space bydividing it into separate areas either with furnishings, windowseat, dropped ceilings or fireplace to create intimate cozy alcovesand spaces for 1 or 2 people all within the same room.Another example is the dining area which can serve both formaland informal guests. Any unsightly views to dirty dishes for formalguests when you don't have a formal dining room can be hidden in avariety of ways - raised counter top between the kitchen and diningarea, sink and dishwasher placed so as not to be in full view orfurnishings such as panel screens.Spaces within a large space can be defined by several means:Variation in flooring;Changes in ceiling height;Alcoves; built-ins;Trim treatment;Wall coverings/colors and furnishing.Also, consider that storage takes all shapes and kinds and doesn'thave to be an actual closet. Built-ins under roof wings, windowseats or nooks and crannies can often times be more useful andaccessible and, therefore, make more efficient use of space. Theycan also serve as functional and aesthetic display shelves forbooks or artwork. This is a simple way to reduce the overall squarefootage and make a small home floor plan more feasible.In minimizing the number of bathrooms you will actually needgive careful consideration to which bathrooms can be shared.However, directly connecting 2 guest bedrooms with one bath can berather awkward and uncomfortable for guests to share. Look insteadfor a bath with a single entrance yet easily accessible from bothbedrooms. This also allows the use of that bathroom by day guestsand yourselves as well.Outside living spaces almost always make a smaller floor planfeel larger and add to the functional square footage of a house.Covered porches have the added advantage of making the space moreusable when shelter from weather is a factor and, thus, make thespace more integrated with the house. The exterior visual elementof a covered porch extends the roof-line of a small house makingthe overall appearance seem larger.The anatomy of a spacious, comfortable small home floor plan isfound in the efficient use of multi-purpose and functional spacesthat serve all the occupants well, all of the time. Small homefloor plans make the best use of your money.
