Setting up accurate proportions is the foundation of drawing. If your subject's proportions are wrong, neither perfect shading or fancy pencil marks can save your drawing.
Put Proportions on Paper
The size of your drawing space determines the size of your penguin. The penguin in this lesson is drawn inside a 4 by 6 in (10.2 by 15.2 cm) drawing space with 2 in (5.1 cm) squares. If you prefer a larger drawing, 6 by 9 in (15.2 by 22.9 cm) with 3 in (7.6 cm) squares works equally well.
1. Use a ruler to outline a vertical, rectangular drawing space and divide it into six squares.
2. Lightly sketch an oval slightly toward the left of your drawing space (Figure 1).
This oval represents the penguin's body. Make sure you leave room to add the head, tail, and feet.
When using a grid, sketch the contents of only one square at a time.
3. Draw an upside-down U-shape as the head on top of his body (Figure 2).
4. Sketch the feet and add a curved line in the lower right to mark the location of his tail feathers.
Note that the foot on the right appears to be much larger than the other. This foot overlaps the other and therefore needs to be drawn larger than the one behind it.
5. Refine the shape of the head by making it smaller, rounder on the upper right, and less round on the left, bottom, and lower right (Figures 3 and 4).
Figure 3 shows the upper two grid squares. Keep in mind that the penguin's face is turned slightly toward the left.
6. Sketch a curved line on the left to mark the upper chest/breast (Figure 4).
7. Use curved lines to sketch the shape of the bill/beak.
8. Add a curved line on the right as the back of his neck and body.
9. Erase the tiny section of the outline of his head that was inside the shape of the beak.
Constantly double-check the proportions of your sketch by visually measuring the shapes of the positive and negative spaces.
10. Indicate the opening of his beak with another slightly curved line (Figure 5).
11. Add two circular shapes to mark the placement of his eyes.
Penguin bills come in various shapes and sizes, depending on the type of penguin. Feel free to make the beak larger, smaller, thicker, or thinner!
12. Sketch a curved line on the right side of the head to map a section of lighter feathers (Figure 6).
13. Give the penguin a smaller belly by modifying the lower-left section of his tummy (Figure 7).
Note that the chest stays the same size to give him a proud posture and a more sophisticated appearance.
If you draw lines in the wrong grid square, simply erase and redraw the lines correctly.
14. Sketch the outline of the lower section of his body.
15. Modify the feet so the bottoms are flat rather than rounded.
16. Use a curved line to redraw the upper section of his chest.
17. Sketch the outlines of the shoulder and the upper section of the wing.
18. Redraw the tail section slightly smaller than in the original sketch (Figure 8).
19. Sketch the outlines of both wings/flippers.
20. Erase the grid lines and check your drawing carefully.
21. Make any changes to the proportions until you are totally happy with your drawing.
22. Lighten your sketch lines with your kneaded eraser until you can barely see them.
Don't press too hard with your pencils when neatly outlining the penguin! No matter how careful you are, accidents can still happen and you may need to erase some lines.
Turn a Sketch into a Contour Drawing
23. Redraw the penguin's head, neck, shoulders, and facial features with a sharp pencil (Figure 9).
Note the double lines around each eye. In addition, the eye on the left is slightly smaller than the one on the right. This eye is farther away from the viewer because of the angle of the head.
24. Redraw the penguin's body slowly and carefully, using a sharp pencil (Figure 10).
Note the double lines on the fronts of the wings, which indicate their thickness.
25. Draw the raggedy-looking feathers of the tail and upper legs.
26. Outline his feet, toes, and heels.
Add Shading and Texture
The hatching lines used to draw feathers are ragged and uneven, with mostly short lines of different lengths and thicknesses.
Before you begin shading Tux, practice your hatching skills. Remember to use different grades of pencils from 2H to 6B and vary the:
density of the lines.
pressure used on your pencils.
27. Hatch a light, medium, and dark raggedy-textured graduation of values (Figure 11).
Shade these graduation from light at the top to dark at the bottom. Choose different grades of pencils based on the range of values needed for each section.
28. Hatch another three graduations in reverse with the darker values at the top and the lighter values at the bottom (Figure 12).
Remember, light affects the placement and value of every section of shading. Keep in mind that a full range of values gives contrast between the light areas and shadow areas.
The light source originates from the upper left in this drawing, so the shading will be a little darker on the lower right.
29. Add dark shading graduations to his face and the top of his head (Figure 13).
Closely examine the directions in which the hatching lines curve.
30. Use medium shading graduations to draw the feathers on his cheek.
31. Add smooth, medium shading to the beak.
32. Add light shading to the chest and tummy, beginning under the chin (Figure 14).
33. Add dark shading in the shadow areas of the beak using a 2B (Figure 15).
34. Fill in the pupil of the eye using a 6B pencil.
35. Use medium values for the irises and the circular rims around each eye.
36. Add shading to the left section of Tux's "tux" using dark to medium graduations.
Note that the darkest section is close to his body under the upper section of his wing (Figure 16).
37. Add medium graduated values to the lighter sections of his wing on the right.
Take your time and carefully note the different directions in which the hatching lines curve.
Curved lines help create the illusion of three dimensional forms.
38. Add medium shading to his legs, feet, and tail.
39. Use straight lines to shade the cast shadow on the surface below the penguin.
40. Add dark shading to his feet, legs, tail, and toes (Figures 17 and 18).
41. Add talons to the ends of his toes.
42. Use a combination of hatching and crosshatching to add darker sections to the cast shadow on the surface below Tux.
43. Add darker values to the wing on the right and to his tail.
44. Compare your drawing to Figure 18 and make any changes necessary.

[SOLVED] IDM WAS REGISTERED WITH A FAKE SERIAL NUMBER Good News [May 08, 2015]: IDM developers got smarter, but the crackers are always a step ahead. Follow this article and send an email to email@example.com if you are desperate. I can NOT post any crack here for legal reasons. Happy Downloading with IDM. ;)

I am sure many of us are too much dependent on Internet Download Manager a.k.a. IDM. The main reason didn’t permanently switch to linux was IDM. I mainly use it for batch downloading and download streaming videos.
Till yesterday, IDM was working fine with me (of course with fake serial numbers, keygen, crack, patch etc. which could be found with little effort).
But few days ago, with the latest update version 6.18 build 7 (released on Nov 09, 2013) Internet Download Manager was literally had a breakthrough and crushed all the serial numbers, …
Short Bytes: Cybellum security researchers have uncovered a new attack mechanism that can be used to take control of your antivirus and turn it into a malware. Called DoubleAgent, this attack exploits an old and undocumented vulnerability in Windows operating system. This Zero Day code injection technique affects all major antivirus vendors and has the power to hijack permissions.
The security researchers from Cybellum have found a new technique that can be used by the cybercriminals to hijack your computer by injecting malicious code. This new Zero-Day attack can be used to take full control over all the major antivirus software. Instead of hiding from the antivirus, this attack takes control of the antivirus itself.
Called DoubleAgent, this attack makes use of a 15-year-old legitimate feature of Windows (read vulnerability)–that’s why it can’t be patched. It affects all versions of Microsoft Windows. Cybellum blog mentions that this flaw is still unpatched by most antivirus v…
