Thanks a whole BUNCH!
Whether you have talent or not, you can learn drawing basics.
Talent helps, but just getting in there and doing it will always gets the job done every time. I also play guitar as well as teach guitar. I can tell you that I would always rather teach someone with mediocre talent and plenty of want-to than that person that has the most natural ability in the world. Want-to will always out perform ability on any day!
So just take your time and try out the examples below and youll see what I mean.
When youre learning to draw, one of the very first basic drawing techniques you will learn is shading.
There is another technique that is used along with shading. It is blending. The two techniques go hand in hand. Our first example deals with shading. Why? You blend the shaded areas, that's why. We have to have some graphite on the page! So let's get started with our first lesson.
Smooth shading is critical with basic drawing. Try this example and practice until it looks right.Go to SHADING TECHNIQUES
BLENDING We all want to learn how to draw. I know youre in a hurry (I know I was!), but there are a few things you have to learn about drawing basics.
You've got to blend in sometimes!
Sorry for the pun!
Drawing techniques can be developed, and shading can be learned. But if you want that 3d quality to your drawing, then its blending we got to do.
So blend away!Go to BLENDING TECHNIQUES
Time to draw a ball!
Have you shaded?
Did you blend it? Great!
Then lets draw a ball.
You may have performed this exercise from the homepage, but lets do it again. When you want to learn drawing, the ball is a very important form to learn.
