Welcome to "So You Wanna Learn How to Draw!" (or SYWKHD for short)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage curious and creative people of all ages to take those tentative first steps into drawing and art. : ) Doesn't matter watch age you are or how you want to approach things, all are welcome here!

I'm of the belief that drawing is not so much a "special" talent that only a few are granted, drawing like any other subject requires study and focus, though unlike other subjects - art focuses on your visual and motor skills rather than memory. While for some that might come quite easily, for others it can take a bit more effort to understand, but that's okay! Nobody ever became Picasso in a day ; )

No artist very rarely has their art style perfected eather, I've been drawing for 17 years and I can still struggle with shapes, shading and perspective. So don't despair if your efforts are not what you were hoping for to begin with. 

This blog will start looking at inital basics:

  • Tools of the Trade: Traditional and Digital
  • Gallery and Portfolio Suggestions
  • First steps into drawing: Basics and Shape
  • Shading
If your coming along for the ride, please comment and let me know what I can do to help you. Or provide suggestions on potential tutorials or tips you might be looking for.
