Compass without a Point


Passing The Time

I’m not entirely sure how to explain this one. I was trying to think of something to draw and started with a dodgy circle which resulted in this.

How to draw the human skull

This wasn’t actually helpful for the task, but as usual with youtube I was distracted by little thumbnails and I figured this would be a fun little thing to watch, and it was.

I found that this video was a bit rushed when trying to show the different steps of the drawing, as it would jump ahead and not really let you see what was done. However, I did up with a version I was happy with as I was drawing along with the video.

I found this to be more helpful in explaining the different steps of the drawing, what the basic shapes where and how you build upon them.

How to draw a portrait

I could never draw portraits before watching this video and after a this I ended up with a drawing that actually resembled the Andrew and not the creature from the Goonies. I had always tried to start with a clear outline of the facial features and work from there rather than starting light and using shading to bring out the different features. These three videos were really, really helpful.

Do you ever want to draw something but have absolutely no idea what to draw?

Well, I had that problem today and was trying to think of something, and then thought that other people are bound to have had the same problem.

So I thought, most people would google the answer, so I did that and found this.

Link : http://something-to-draw.com/index.php?tags=&last_id=10301945315

It a website that will give you an image to draw.

There are also options for people to paint, sculpt, do origami, or even staining glass!

So that’s solved that problem now.
