WHY DO MY SKETCHES LOOK LIKE THAT!? | How to Start a Drawing | My Sketching Process

  • Published: 16 February 2019
  • I won't be covering the fundamentals of drawing or how to draw specific things, but rather the way I sketch and the steps I take that create the results you'll usually see me post. I get a lot of questions about that so...here it is! If you're looking for "How-to draw this" or "How to draw that", this isn't the tutorial for you. This tutorial explains how I build up a sketch from beginning to end, adding tone, and getting a loose sketch.

    I do have a tutorial on how to teach yourself you draw anything, and that can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COTBfT6N6-M (Its about finding an art style, but it can apply to anything)

                          Dang it, I figured out the problem, I’m using led, I don’t know what it is with led but it making drawing lighter harder

                          Does that make sense

                              Thanks! these are quite helpful but do you have any tips for a certain problem I have? I tend to throw in too much detail during the 'light sketching' phase, which throws me off a lot. :p

                                  Your art style is so beautiful and your vidoes really help me and give me motivation to draw more. Could you please do a video on eyes and head angles/ perspectives?

                                        I really appreciate that last bit where you show us what a drawing without following your steps would look like. It reminded me that I need to be patient and build upon layers instead of expecting immediate perfection

                                                                      It usually doesn't end up going to well.... But that may just be because I try to rush it.. but I'm working on that...
