1. Introduction

Ladybugs seem to come and go without being noticed most of the time. They are cute and colorful insects. Insects are a living species that have a 3-part body, several eyes, 3 pairs of jointed legs and 1 pair of antennae. Antennae are long, thin sensors. Scientists that study insects are called entomologists. Entomology is a Greek word meaning segmented or cut into pieces. The study of insects is part of the field of biology which studies all living things. An insect’s body has pieces that are joined together. Some animals have a long spine or backbone which means that they are made all in one piece. Insects are a diverse and fascinating form of life which accounts for more than two-thirds of all known organisms. There are approximately 1.3 million named species of insects around the globe. Insect species are still being identified and classified, with a description and a name. Ladybugs have a smooth and delicate shell on the top of their body. Underneath, 6, tiny rough legs work together so that they can walk around. Watch them move, they are slow and steady. They can tip over by accident and they may get stuck. Their stubby legs and their round body will struggle to right themselves. Just give them a little push and they will have their shell back on top. When ladybugs cluster on a sunny, kitchen window they can be a pest. But they are helpful creatures in the garden, field and forest. They naturally feed on the harmful insects that destroy plants, crops and trees. Ladybugs or lady beetles fly and cluster together. Read more…

The following are the ten facts about pandas:

A panda’s hand has six digits as five fingers as well as an opposable thumb
There are less than 10 million pandas in the world.

Pandas are found mostly in mountain ranges in central Shaanxi, China’s Sichuan, and Gansu provinces.

Pandas inhabit mostly mountain forests, which are dense with conifers and bamboo.

Due to their ineffective intestinal system, the giant pandas have to feed for approximately 15 hours each day, with bamboo making 99 % of their diet.

Giant pandas are among the few bear species that do not hide. This is because it cannot store adequate fat from its diet.

Pandas live at high altitudes of about 1,500 to 3,000M. Their thick and oily fur aids keep them warm.

Male pandas are called as boars while females are sows.
Pandas are solitary creatures

At birth time an infant panda is about 1/900th its mother’s body size.

The panda is friendly to children compared to adults Read more…

Penguins are very interesting creatures to get to know! Did you know that they go tobogganing too? Do you think that all penguins are black and white in color? If you think the answer is “yes”, then you might want to re-think that answer. Did you know that some penguins do not just live in the coldest of climates, or that not all penguins waddle when they walk?

Do you know that some penguins could weigh nearly 100 lbs. (45 kg), while other penguins weigh in at just over 2 lbs. (.9 kg)? Some penguins lay just one egg, and they keep the egg warm by holding it on top of their feet! Do you know which penguins they are? Other groups of penguins lay two eggs, but only one egg will hatch. Do you know the names of those penguins? Were you aware that some penguins have black spots on their chests, and that these spots are different from penguin to penguin? There are so many interesting things to learn about these non-flying birds! Read more…

Learn How to Draw Caricatures – For the Absolute Beginner

Learn How to Draw Caricatures – For the Absolute Beginner

To draw a caricature is to simply draw an image that is very distinguishable to your model/subject’s identity with or without being photographically identical. In early forms of this genre, the type of figures used was animals to represent a certain person. A painting or any type of artwork cannot be called a caricature if the piece does not involve an actual person, because involving a real person as a model is the critical part of this genre.

Sketching Animals – The contour shape
To properly construct the figure of any subject you want to illustrate, observe the structure of its form and find what kind of shape that can resemble its body structure.

The idea is to have a basis for portraying the mass of the figure. The basic shapes can be easily positioned upon your desired perspective or point of view.

• Obtain the most basic form of the animal you are going to draw.
• Use the basic form as a reference for constructing the main outline.

The main outline is the most important element for the subject to be distinguishable. Remember that the basic figure (basic shapes) is mainly a basis for its mass in the simplest form, this is just a way for you to see the subject as a multidimensional figure, and any change in position will gradually change the manner of how the figure should be outlined.

The primary outline may overlap, replace, or replicate the basic figure.

If the portions of your animal are smoothly spherical (circles used to simplify the form), then the primary outline would simply overlap or replicate the simplified form, but if the part has ridges such as the face of the animal (nose, eyeholes, cheeks etc…) then the basic form should be modified to illustrate the exact shape of the head.

• The basic forms will be your guide to properly lay out each linear shade.

Observe the first sphere. The linear shades do not bend properly with the contour shape but it can show the dimensions by leaving the center of the sphere unmarked. These are hatches that use the point of light as a reference.

The linear shades on the second sphere bend with the contour shape of the figure. The lines show the proportions by interpreting the form by flowing with it. These hatches use the point of light and the manner of its bend to show dimensions.

If you are going to use a single set of hatches to shade the subject, use the method of the second sphere, and then use the method of the first sphere to darken and enforce the visual depth.

Thin and light linings are used to portray the dimensional shape. Follow the contour figure of the basic form to properly portray the shade values according to its perspective Read more…

Basic head layout
There are few characteristics of a head that is relative to almost everyone, this similarity in measurements will be your guide if you are to construct a face when drawing a portrait.

The eyes are positioned below, above or right at the center of the head’s perfect-center level. It is usually aligned with the upper tip of the ear.
The head’s space above and below the eyes’ location are equal.
The nose wings are usually aligned with the tear ducts, and its nose ball is aligned with the ear lobes (this similarity changes depending on the person’s age as the ears grow bigger).
Both tips of the mouth are nearly aligned with the center of both eyes.

Although you will surely encounter a person that has a little difference on these measurements, it would be easier for you to identify his or her unique proportion value if you have the knowledge about what is most usual.

The familiarity to different angles of the head is essential when drawing faces.

Head shapes differ in every angle. The position of each facial feature gradually changes as the head makes a quarter turn. And as it turns further on one side, their sizes slightly change and the features reveal their unseen angles, thus, totally changing their shape.

A head facing in a perfect front view would have two equal sides most of the time, while a head in a quarter angle view shows the outline of the nose bridge which cannot be portrayed perfectly when in front view. The lips would reveal its thickness as it loses the exposure of its further tip. And the further ear and eye will lose its exposure as the head turns further on the side.

These natural gradual adjustments happen when the head moves horizontally.

Unlike horizontal movements, when a head moves in a diagonal direction it changes the diagonal thickness of the head dynamically, thus, the facial features follow.
Each facial feature comes closer together as the head leans further. The nostrils become totally exposed as the nose ball clearly establish its distance from the plane (face surface).

The thickness of the lower lip can be easily conveyed as it overlaps the upper lip, and the eye shapes would appear flat.

When the head moves downwards, the nose (depending on its height) would overlap the lips, and the eyebrows (depending on its thickness) would slightly overlap the eyes. The height of the neck would be hidden as the top of the head becomes clearly conveyed, totally changing or rather hiding the face’s horizontal height.

The facial ridges of males are more defined and prominent compared to females, especially the nose bridge, Brow Bridge and the jaw line.

But there are few cases in which the shape of a man’s profile looks more feminine than usual or vice-versa. In this case, you have to rely on the facial features he or she have to clearly portray his or her gender, such as thick eyebrows or any facial hairs for men or pouty, glossy lips and long eyelashes for women.
