Learning to draw is not only fun, it can also be an awakening experience. Fortunately anybody can learn to draw. And so can you, no matter what your age, your professional background and your situation are.

Use Your Eyes to Draw Learning to draw is nothing else than learning to use your eyes. It sounds easier than it is, so it's tempting to fall back on mere copy work. However, copying other drawings or pictures is not the best way to develop your drawing skills. Instead you should prefer drawing real scenes first containing simple objects, later more complicated things like animals and people.

If you want to learn how to draw skillful and beautiful pictures, or want to become more creative, then you should read on. I will show you the important stations on your way to drawing mastery

Understanding How to Draw The most important prerequisite you need for learning to drawing is not some special material or equipment but your motivation. Especially when beginning you will face obstacles and setbacks. Also you may be afraid of failure. The more motivated you are the easier it is to overcome these problems and move constantly along the road to success.

Another important point is understanding your subject. The better you know and understand what you are drawing, the better you can bring it to paper. You'll see: once you learned to recognize and grasp your subject's dimensions and fabric and the objects that are composing the scene you are capturing, drawing them in the proper dimensions, proportions and perspective will get much easier.

Drawing is Craftmanship Drawing is craftsmanship to a certain extent. To create great drawings you need to know how to create shadings, get your lines and shapes in form etc. Building on a solid foundation of these skills helps you to focus your attention away from the mechanics of drawing towards the creative part. In the fourth part I'll show you several exercises that will help you to practice these basic techniques.

So what makes up a good artist beyond these basic skills? Mainly years of experience that result in countless small ideas, techniques and concepts all picked up intuitively and hidden in the artist's subconscious. That's one important reason great artists are not automatically great art teachers.

Of course experience will come only with time, but the fifth part contains tips and tricks that will be a shortcut for your drawing career.

The following parts of this course will cover these topics. So they'll be giving you the knowledge necessary to start a learning path that will lead to great results and of course: great drawings.
