Art Tips

Some helpful tips for becoming an excellent artist! (Tips included only for drawing men/women)

TOOLS

Tools are important! Before starting, make sure you have everything you need.

Erasers

You’ll definitely want to keep an eraser handy! Everybody makes mistakes or changes their mind, and you don’t want to get up for an eraser every time (and believe me, there’ll be a lot of times!). Prep by keeping an eraser by you at all times. If you have a worn out eraser, with the corners rounded, cut the eraser in half. You heard me, in half! The rounded edges will help erase big areas, while the new sharp corners will erase small details. If all corners become round again, easy-just snip off a little layer until you have sharp corners.

Pencils

Pencils are so important! You’ll want to sketch first, before coloring in the finishing touches. You’ll want three kind of pencils: mechanical, dull, and perfectly sharp. You’ll need the mechanical pencil for any tiny details you want to add in. With the nice, never-ending thin stick of led you’ll be able to draw in any details! 0.5 pencils are recommended for the thinner led and more detail purposes. You’ll also want a dull pencil; you can easily shade in anything without wasting a perfectly sharp pencil! You can color in on the side for maximum effect. Last, you’ll need the most important of them all-the perfectly sharp. Get a #2 pencil and stick it in the pencil sharpener until perfection! You can draw anything from here.

Colored Pencils

Crayons are for 1-6 years olds. But you? No way! Colored pencils are much more sophisticated and add a nice texture and simple detail. Have a basic pack of 12 (sharpened, mind you!) beside you, when you’re ready to color in your masterpiece!

Snacks

Masterpieces take long to complete! Have a glass of water/juice and a simple snack (bag of chips, bowl of fruit, etc.) by you, just in case your stomach decides it needs a snack break :mrgreen:

Ready to Draw: The Basics of a Sketch

Now that you have the tools you need, you can begin drawing!

1. The Head

For the head of your person, draw lightly an even oval/circle with your sharp pencil. For more precision, use a small cup for a template. While drawing, keep in mind the hair and how you want their pose. For example, you can draw a slightly turned head for confusion.

2. The Body

After drawing your body, don’t worry about the face and hair yet! This basic template is to draw anyone. First, draw a nicely even stump that connects to the head for a neck. Don’t make it too thin or too wide. Next, draw the arms according to your pose. For a basic template, draw the arms from the neck’s two lines outwards, a little big for the shoulders, and then curve back down. Then, draw two straight lines on the left and right to make arms. Connect with five fingers.

3. The Hair

Next, you’re going to be drawing hair! This will determine where you put your clothes and facial features. For girls, start with the bangs. It can be straight, forehead bangs such as Taylor Swift, or with bangs coming out from the root. Your rootline can be on the side or in the middle, whichever you prefer. Next, draw out the hair! It can be stick-straight, have a little wave, or even curly! For curled hair, use your mechanical pencil to carefully draw curly-cues in your hair. For ponytails and such, simply use your mechanical pencil to draw a simple oval as the hairband. Flow out the ponytail/pigtail/etc. to the preferred length. Use your dull pencil to shade.

4. Facial Features

The face is most important! First, draw the eyes. They should be perfect ovals, with a smaller oval inside as the pupil. Draw eyelashes at the sides, and curve them upwards with your mechanical pencil. Next, draw the eyebrows. They don’t need to be huge; just simple small arches about an inch above the eyes. Then, draw the nose as a half-triangle. Finally, draw your mouth as a simple, small smile.

5. Clothes

Clothes add nice touches! First, you can decide which article of clothing: tanktops, jackets, tanktop under cardigans, simple t-shirts, or dresses. For tanktops, draw thin straps and a line at where your line connects with your body. For tanktop under cardigans, draw an arch from your shoulder to the end of your body on each side. Draw a line about an inch form your neck. For simple t-shirts, do you even need to ask? For dresses, simply start with sleeves similar to the t-shirt (or tanktop straps) and add a curved bottom.

For the bottom, you may draw either shorts, skirts, or pants (self-explanatory). From there, you can draw skinny legs with simple boots on the bottom.

Ready to Draw: Finishing Touches

After you’re done with your sketch, you can now color in and add any finishing touches!

Color

With your colored pencil, take it and outline your pencil line darkly. Then, shade in lightly. Do this for all your clothes/facial details/skin.

Signature

Add your signature for an extra flourish! Real artists do this; why can’t you?
