How to Draw Smoke – How to Draw a Realistic Train


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial. I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today
we are going to draw a train with a lot of smoke. Let´s use graphite powder
with a rag of chamois leather. Take off the excess on a scrub piece of paper, and now… let´s draw! Begin by sketching the general shape
you want the smoke to have, and then do some shadows. The reason I suggest to use
this technique is because the pencil can leave lines
and a more solid appearance, while the powder leaves a more
ethereal look ideal for smoke. We keep adding shadows to
render the shapes and volumes. And then with a kneaded eraser
or with a regular pencil eraser you can pull lights…
and continue in this way, pulling more lights and more shadows. This is really fun! If you want to contrast
or define some boarders you may do so with pencil
but do it sparingly and carefully so it doesn´t look rigid. And now… the train. I know i know, I was carried
away so much with the smoke that I almost forgot the train. In this case it will be very simple,
small and from the front it has a grid underneath and the tracks. And here on the side, we will be
able to see slightly another wagon, let´s draw some dim trees at a distance
and we can rapidly build a landscape with the chamois and graphite. I´ll extend the smoke
downwards a little bit so that it will come out of the pipe. Draw other trees closer
and therefore darker. By the way the graphite
powder I get it by saving it when I sharpen my leads
of my lead holders, otherwise you can get it
by rubbing the tip of your pencil on sand paper. With an extra fine eraser
do the tracks, if you don´t have one
you may cut a triangular piece of your eraser with a blade. Excellent! It´s ready! If you enjoyed it please give it
