If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you
Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!
You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2 and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.
Okay! This is my first tutorial, so please bear with me.
You will need:
- Hi-liters, preferably yellow. I used one “jumbo Style” marker, and one more slender marker
- Pliers. Any kind will work
- A jar to hold your ink.
- small cups. I used 2 disposable ones.
Well, that was easy.
You just learned 8 Chinese words in the cutest way possible.
Real Fact: These are the character meanings (which are the same across dialects and languages- I believe in Japanese kanji they have the same meaning)
In Mandarin Chinese they are (when spoken): Kou (mouth), mu (tree), huo (fire), men (door), yue (moon), ri (sun), shan (mountain), ren (person)
These are also all radicals (kind of like the building blocks) of other Chinese characters, as well as being characters (as you see above) in their own right. Therefore, a person reading Chinese can determine some of the meaning behind the word’s character(s) by looking at their radicals.
See, learning to read Chinese isn’t as difficult as it first seems.
Even though it takes a long ass time to master. (So so sooooo long).
