How to Make Drawing Waaay Easier by Caleb-Brown How to Make Drawing Waaay Easier by Caleb-Brown
IMPORTANT: Focus on proportion and simplicity, that includes simple 3d Shapes (Spheres, cylinders, Cubes etc.)
Practice these methods and I 100% guarantee you drawing will become much easier and you will get better. Drawing is NOT a talent it is a SKILL. Always remember if you have a hard time drawing or painting something it's because you aren't thinking about it simply enough.


I know the drawing sucks but i was only making this for a dude on conceptart.org so i didn't spend much time on it (under 10 minutes for the drawing but the actual writing to a bit of time). Anyway i decided to upload it here because i think it might help a few more people.

If you have any questions at all feel free to ask! :)

I haven't updated my DA in a while so if you want to see more up to date stuff check out my conceptart.org Sketchbook here:[link]

and sorry for any spelling errors. :p

Edit: BTW I didn't include a lot of information like straights against curves, rythm, gesture and more about the tension and those are all a major parts of this whole thing. Idk just google it or something... Srsly, google is one of the best tools ever.

Also this isn't the only way to draw... it's a really good way imo (that's why i shared it) but try others and combine all of the aspects you like into a method that best suits you.

Tech-deprived.
I'm on this page:  caleb-brown.deviantart.com/art…
How do I find the tutorial itself?  I think I'd like to take it.  Where do I click?   ... wait ... is that the entire tutorial at the top?  If so, it's good - tried it; it works.  Where do I find similar beginner tutorials?
THANKS!
