Some people may be born as great artists but do not lose hope just because you don’t find yourself a great artist. Take time to learn a few tips and tricks and you will eventually improve your drawings. Here are some use things that you might find useful in your quest to learn drawing.
– Do not attempt to draw every little detail that you can find in the photograph. You don’t have to be that detailed to get a better drawing. Keep in mind that the larger details in the pictures count most than the finer details and keep in mind as well that you can easily get lost with the finer details, so take time to focus more on the larger forms first than going for the finer details.
-Have a goal in mind if you are drawing. Visualizing your drawing can be a good start in trying to make better drawings than just starting to focus on the details too soon. Having a picture in mind will also guide you in achieving the output of your drawing as well.
– Even before you start your drawing, make sure that you have mapped out the proportion of your drawing according to the available space you have. One of the common mistakes in drawing is not having enough space for the entire drawing and that can end up to your failure of having the entire image in your available space.
– Familiarize your drawing materials. It is important that you know what to use to create finer lines and broader lines, lighter or darker highlights or what you need in shading. Indeed, having a good grasp of what you will use to create certain effects on your drawing can be helpful.
– Do not judge your drawing even before you are finished. If you are judging your drawing too much even before it has been completed, this may discourage you and may even lead you to give up earlier.
– Learn how to vary the weight of your lines in drawing. You can make certain lines darker by using other pencils or by pressing deeper, add finer lines by lifting your pencils a bit. Using varying weights with your pencil will allow you to make better drawings than drawing with uniform line weights.
– Learn some techniques and master them. The hatching technique and contour drawing technique are just among the techniques that you can learn to help you master drawing as well.
Of course, practice is essential. Even with just beginner tips and tricks or even if you start learning a few lessons on drawing for beginners, you will eventually learn to master them one by one and learn how to draw better.
