Let's learn how to draw a squirrel. To understand this step-by-step tutorial, we will draw this animal in six progressive stages. Stage One. Let's start by drawing the overall body shape. Stage Two. Let's add a basic tail shape. Stage Three. First, add the rear leg and allow for its depth to equal the top body thickness. Add the forearm, with its length equal to the tail's thickness.Measuring and comparing one shape against another will help us to determine the right size for every shape. Stage Four. The ear, hand and foot should be added. Stage Five. Add the eye. Stage Six. In the sixth stage of how to draw a squirrel drawing guide, we will finally add the lines and shadings. This is done to highlight important details like hair and body form.

Let's learn how to draw a rabbit. The drawing will be done in six steps. First step involves drawing a simple body shape. Second step you need to do is to add the head. The head can be used as a measure, so its height we be two times smaller than the body height. We will be adding the ears in the third step, with the ears height beeing a little bit bigger than the head's. Add the hands in the next step by making their length equal to the head's depth. In step 5 let's add the eyes and the body shape. We can draw some grass also, if desired. In the final step we will do the final sketch. We will draw the nose and mouth and also some shadings to illustrate the rabbit's fur. This is only an example out of many on how to draw a rabbit. As a street drawer, I like to keep it fast and simple so I can start a new drawing rightaway.

Professional drawers use various pencil drawing techniques to sharpen certain details, techniques that you can easily learn in this article. There are some pencil marks that the drawers like to use more than other marks. After you will master these marks you will be able to implement cool textures and shadings in your own artwork. Hatching. Hatching is done by drawing parallel lines on your draw paper. The hatching lines must be different at start and end points to prevent hard edges from forming. Also, you can alternate the distance between the parallel lines in order to form darker or lighter areas of a certain shade. Crosshatching.Crosshatching is very similar to hatching but over the parallel lines we will draw a second set of parallel lines, at different angles, one set over the other. If you're looking for more depth in your drawing you can add a third and a fourth set of lines and so on until the desired shade is obtained.
Building up layers is a more difficult but amazing technique and involves using different pencils with different grade of graphite to create the desired effect. Master this technique with practice and good hand control. Here are some great starting points to build up layers: 1.Start with simple light. Get a 2H pencil for this step. Pick a certain space on your draw paper and gently, scribble from right to left over a couple of inches. Halfway across, loosen up the pressure on the pencil to obtain lighter effect on the bottom side. 2.Darker lead.Pick an HB pencil and repeat step 1, only this time you will use HB pencil over the 2H pencil's initial drawing. Stop you scribbles at the halfway point for best effect. 3.Continue to darken. Take a 2B pencil, and repeat step 2, scribbling over the HB pencil drawing. When you finish you can see the obvious transition from dark to light.
This beeing said, start practicing these great pencil techniques, master them with patience and most important, have fun with it. Learn about inventive pencil drawing techniques by clicking here!
I want to show you the best way of drawing faces from photographs. One of the most common ways to draw a face is by measuring it. Everything can be measured. I have learned in school, like many of you have, that to measure a certain object I have to compare it to something I have seen before. Just like measuring the distance from one point to another on a map. Just so you know many persons measure objects by comparing them to themselves. Baselines are also comparison plans. Like when you compare a flower to a tree.But when you compare the tree to an entire forest, the tree is not that big. Size is relative, depending on the relevant componenets. When we use this plan in art drawings, we compare the baselines in the picture to another particularity in that image. Establishing baselines. Photographs are the simplest images and easy-to-use because they are pictures in two dimensions and they don't move. To practice this measurement you will need a pencil, an eraser, a sketch pad, paper and a photograph, preferably large. 1.Establish a baseline. Select an easy to use particularity in the photo and measure it with a straight line - for instance, the width of the eye. You can cut a piece of paper to measure it. 2.Transfer the baseline width to your paper. Place the measured line on your piece of paper. The marked line on the paper represents the baseline. This line will be used to measure any other specifics in that photo. 3.Compare and measure the other features. Compare the proportion of every aspect of the face to the baseline. Using the same marked piece(in our case - the eye) you can measure any part in the face by comparing that part with the proportion of the eye. 4.Place the correct measurements. Carefully check if the measurements on the paper are right.
So start practising, it's so much fun and try doing friends or family portratis and impress them with you new skills. Good luck! Stay tuned for more drawing ideas!
