I show you how to draw virtually anything! In these tutorials, you'll learn simple step-by-step techniques so that you can draw anything you want.
If you doubt yourself, I want to assure you, you do not need any talent for drawing! If you feel you have talent, great, but you do not need any to learn how to draw.
Drawing is a learnable skill!
Talent may only help you to speed up the learning process. Remember that even the slow-paced turtle will reach the goal with 100% certainty.
I suggest you begin drawing only 1 (one) picture every week at first. No more, no less.
Only one single drawing a week. Drawing one single picture per week gives you enough time and space to do finish the drawing in a relaxed manner.
You need to feel good and relaxed, with no deadlines, pressure, or similar silly distractions.
And if you cannot finish even one single drawing in one week, no problem. Do it in two weeks or one month. You set your own pace.
Learning speed and drawing speed is irrelevant here, this is not a competition neither a school test. Take it easy.
The drawing speed will increase naturally as you proceed and become skillful and more proficient, one step at a time.
Trust the process, it works!
I also want to tell you that by following these easy tutorials you simply cannot fail!
If you are a total beginner I suggest you start by drawing nature scenes, cartoon characters, or flowers. Why?
Because nature scenes, cartoons, or flowers give you a little room for making mistakes that are not very visible. If you jump right into drawing animals or portraits the chances are you may get disappointed and discouraged.
You train yourself first by doodling, sketching, and drawing simple pictures that do not require too much precise and detailed work.
You are going to learn to draw flowers, animals, roses, angel wings, birds, manga, or cartoons, just to name a few.
Everyone - including you, can learn to draw by following the simple techniques on this site.
The most important and often underestimated is a daily routine of doodling.
Make a habit of doodling for about 2 or 3 minutes a day. Doodle anything, even if it is just scribbling nonsense on a piece of paper.
By doodling you train yourself to gain confidence in drawing because you do not have any expectations of what the outcome may be.
When you have no expectations you do not put pressure on yourself. Whatever comes out, comes out. That's it and that's fine.
The same as with every visual art, drawing skill is a kind of mental tool that puts you automatically into a calm and relaxed state of mind once you begin to doodle, sketch or draw.
Only when you feel calm and relaxed, only then you can create your true art.
When you are anxious, angry, upset, worried...well, try to draw something, paint something, try to make a beautiful piece of art...it is simply not possible.
Art and creativity dwell on the right side of your brain. The key to entering into the right side of your brain is to calm and relax your mind.
There are no extra tips or suggestions for learning how to draw, except that you begin to draw right now.
One of the most rewarding benefits of learning how to draw is that you can draw and paint pictures to decorate your house.
You can give your drawing as a gift to someone or just illustrate your journal. You get the idea.
We feel almost instantly peaceful and relaxed when watching a simple pencil drawing picture.
The same is with painting. Why is that? In our digital age, we have access to all sorts of high-tech gadgets to create stunning pictures, yet we often prefer something handmade.
Why is that? Visual art is a very important part of our life. We humans have an innate need to be surrounded by the beauty around us to feel good.
Your drawings and paintings may become the custom-made beauty that you can decorate your home.
Imagine yourself illustrating your journal! Illustration drawings could just be a simple flower or some cartoon creature or an animal sketch.
Any drawing can add extraordinary value to the plain text. Wouldn’t be that cool if you have such a skill?
Absolutely yes! I can already sense a big smile on your face.
When you draw your stuff, it will have your imprint on it. Your real “YOU” is in the drawing or painting.
It has a spirit because the part of your soul is in the picture.
Suddenly your drawing becomes alive and it speaks to you and everyone. I call that real magic. That is the beauty of art.
More and more people are looking for alternative ways to replace photos with handmade art.
Colors have a huge impact on our mental state.
You can learn to sketch and draw in a surprisingly short time by simply practicing the methods I describe here. You can print them out and copy them, as you like. In the flowers section, I show you how to draw a rose easily and effortlessly.
Please post your drawings here. Show us how you made your drawing or sketch or painting. No one is perfect so relax and share your drawings with others.
We love to see each other’s work and it doesn’t matter how skillful you are. Every master was once a beginner.
