Hi! I’m a guy from the USA who loves to draw and play with art. Nothing is as fun for me as drawing, sketching, and creating. It’s relaxing, freeing, and it opens up a whole new world!
I want to teach you how to start drawing and stop being scared of the blank page or empty canvas. You can do this, just like I did. Just follow these steps:
1) Get an idea or vision in your mind. Start with a doodle if you’re nervous.
2) I want you to get comfortable with your mediums you will be using (pencils, markers, paint etc.) So pick out a couple that you want to use. They don’t have to be expensive or top of the line but it’s best if they are something that you are familiar with.
3) Now lay out your stuff and sit down at your table/desk/floor/bench or wherever you plan on doing your work at comfortably. Sit up straight and relax because we are about to begin!
4) Find an image online of something similar to what you want to draw or find a photo of it if possible (but not necessary).
Starting to draw is easy, but if you’re intimidated by the blank page, it can be hard to get started. Drawing is just putting one line (or mark) on top of another. It doesn’t have to be good or even make sense at first, the only thing that matters is that you keep going.
In this blog I will teach you more about drawing and give you practice exercises to help you build confidence so that drawing doesn’t seem scary anymore. Having a place to show your work can also help overcome fear of drawing in public.
I’ve been drawing for a little over a year now and I thought I’d share my experiences with this blog.
I’m hoping that you’ll be like me and have no experience at all and be willing to start from scratch. Drawing is an easy skill to learn, but it can be hard if you don’t have any confidence in your abilities.
You can also use this blog if you have a lot of experience, but perhaps haven’t had the best teachers or mentors.
This blog is filled with lessons I’ve learned that apply to both beginners and experienced artists.
If you want to know how I started drawing please go to the lessons page and read the first few posts!
This blog is about the motivation and tools to help you get started drawing. Enjoy, share and feel free to ask questions!
Here, I’ll explain how I started drawing and what helped me stop being afraid of it. This blog is for anyone who want’s to start drawing or improve their skills at drawing.
I’ve been drawing since I was a small kid. I used to draw all the time, but then my friends stopped doing it and I felt ashamed. When I wanted to draw again, I felt like there was a wall in front of me that wouldn’t let me draw anything. It took me years until I learned how to overcome this fear again. Now, I feel confident when it comes to drawing and don’t feel like I’m not good enough anymore.
Thing is, it’s easier than you think! You just need the right motivation and mindset, practise and some tools. So here’s my advice on how to start drawing:
Step 1: Motivation
The first thing you need is the motivation to learn how to draw. If you’re not motivated it will be hard for you to get started. But you can’t just wait for the motivation because then it might never come. You have to work for it! Decide that
Firstly, I would like to say that it is not necessary to draw well to draw.
Next, I would like to say that you do not need to be an artist in order to draw.
Finally, anyone can learn how to draw!
If you are brand new to drawing then this is the place for you. This blog will show you not only how to draw but also how not be afraid of art or drawing in general.
Drawing is not only a good skill to have, it’s also fun. The basics are easy to learn and the more you practice, the better you get.
Drawing is one of those skills that takes a little bit of practice but when you get the hang of it, you wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. Drawing can be just as much fun as playing a video game or watching television or reading a book.
First of all, getting better at drawing takes a lot of practice. Secondly, everyone thinks they can’t draw. Thirdly, drawing is really hard because it’s really simple. And fourthly, you can’t get better at drawing unless you are willing to actually draw.
Here’s what I mean:
Drawing is simple because there is only one right way to do it. Drawing is hard because it’s easy. It’s easy because all you have to do is copy what you see and find ways to make it look like what you are seeing. It’s hard because that’s not what people think about when they think about drawing. They think about how good the art looks, not whether or not the artist did a good job of copying what he saw.
So if you want to get better at drawing, just start doing it and stop worrying so much about how good those drawings are. At first they won’t be very good, but that doesn’t matter if you’re not worried about that. If you don’t care whether your first few drawings are any good then your fourth or fifth one will be a lot better than your first one was, and then your tenth one will be even better than that one was, and so on.”
