How to Hold the Pencil
Start with Basics and learn how to hold the pencil. There are more grips you could use but the most common are:
Tripod Grip or Brush Grip, Underhand Grip, and Overhand Grip. We recommend mastering it, especially at the beginning, so you create the best holding technique. This makes your drawing much accurate and your hands will not have muscle cramps at all. Another benefit is to keep the pencil sharper for longer.
See the detailed instructions on How to Master the Pencil Grip.
About the Lines
After you have learned how to hold the pencil, you need to understand how the lines work. There are Flat Horizontal and Vertical Lines, Accent Lines, Contour Lines, Scumble/Scribbling, Cross Hatch Line, Smudge, and Pointillism. Don’t worry it is not hard and you don’t need to learn every style. Just pick up the one or two that are fitting to you. If you need help, learn more in our free article How to Draw Lines.
Basic Perspectives in Drawing
The perspective is important to have more realistic images. Drawing the faces or other objects from more perspectives brings your drawing skills to another level. Mastering this skill is not simple, but using it will impress others really easily. Some artists are just playing with perspectives and are not good at other drawing techniques. To learn about the Linear, from Zero to Three Point Perspective, Isometric, and Atmospheric perspectives is really important, you may just pick one or play with various combinations. Everything can be found for free in How to use Perspectives in Drawing.
Drawing the Basic Shapes
Do you know what are all basic shapes? Creating the basic shapes will help you to create drawings. The idea is to break down the object into more basic shapes. But remember to not make it dark, since it serves only as an outline. Therefore, we recommend making the outline light so you could erase it in case of need. Basic shapes do not have to be the perfect or equilateral triangle, a perfect square, or a perfect circle. Just use it when needed, to learn how exactly you should use the basic shapes, visit our guide of Drawing the Basic Shapes.
Light, Shadows and Shading
We have decided to put all 3 topics together because the techniques are similar and could be described much quicker. We have also promised to teach you some shortcuts, and they can be found in Drawing Shadows and Light. Learn also different shading techniques, all about light and tones. Do you know all the techniques? We don’t think so.
The Best Finishing Techniques
Finished with feeling that there is something missing? The funny part of the creative work is that erasing makes it better. Erasing and Dusting is common practice. If you have in your drawing visible helping outlines, take the best eraser, it may ruin the whole effort, so be careful with it. To learn how and when you should use the correct techniques visit the How to Finish your Drawings. You will find there also some bonuses and advice that will save you money.
