Youtube is one vast and free source of video tutorials. This video is a good tutorial showing step-by-step how to draw the human face.
I’ve done a bit of researching and came across Matthew Archanbault’s website http://www.drawing-tutorials-onl… I believe there are a lot of “subscription” lessons, but I signed up for the free drawing lessons.
I just put in my email address and for the past few months have received emails with different drawing topics. He starts off with very basic subjects and I have found them quite easy to follow. As I explore the different tutorials I’ve found out his students are using a lot of different styles.
This may be beneficial, especially if you were looking for specific tutorials for a specific style. I do believe this is a good place for building a foundation in drawing.
These artifices used to produce a drawing only induce to an endless vice.
I used this book as the basis of my teaching and never had a less than great results from all students. Perhaps there’s video now.
The big problem with all these tutorials you find on the internet and in most books is that they will teach you to draw by “schematics”, approximate preliminary forms and repetitive and insistent lines that do not allow the final drawing to be just fluent, Easy and spontaneous. These qualities can only be achieved by doing the thing as it already is at the end from the beginning!
I don’t think there’s a better way of introducing drawing. Look at the kids work. It’s inventive. And you and a kid learning to draw are no different/ Actually the kids have a big advantage because the will be as creative as they can when left alone or even better prompted by an adult.
The feedback you provide will help us show you more relevant content in the future.
Go to You Tube and look up PROKO. You can possibly download some of his lessons. He is a terrific teacher of anatomy. He does wonderful demos.
I assure you that a drawing made in steps by enhancement of forms does not lead to a clean and light result and will not be quick and neither free of suffering.
Lets take a look on the Art History, what was the Great Master of Painting that he drew using predefined shapes (schemes)????? none!!!!
So it follows that a drawing should be simple, fast and accurate !!!!
The YouTube channel Proko is a pretty good one. You can’t download them legally for free, but you can access the any time on YouTube.
I have no idea what to tell you about drawing techniques. I LOVE the book Drawing for Children by Sandy Brooks. I might be wrong with the 1st name. She has a great follow up book as well called “Drawing for older Children” Start with the first.
There’s an ocean full of tutorials to learn to draw. There are for landscape drawing, portrait drawing and so on. First you should decide what would like to draw (landscapes, portraits) and search in that category.
What I can suggest to you, that comes closest to a good drawing is “how to draw with the right side of the brain”
There a young chap who could give you some simple lessons for beginners. Check him out.
A drawing with good fill of shading does not mean NOTHING! By the way, it means, yes … a pretense! a camouflage. a disguise. This type of resource is used at the end of an artistic drawing to camouflage and hide the difficulties of an imperfect, inappropriate drawing. If the drawing was good in itself, it would not require complements like makeup!
A good drawing must have lightness and the speed of who did it without suffering, knowing what is done.
There’re many PDFs and classical books about drawing and sketching which can be found on Amazon, Ebay and so on.
Think like this: which is the better? to draw by successive steps approaching a final drawing or simply drawing as this should be ???
Adults are scared of creativity. I don’t blame them. Even when prompted. Everyone’s just so afraid of not looking smart, good or successful. Please trust me, the more realistic the drawing the more boring it will be. Art is about making something more interesting than before.
