How to Draw Angel’s Wings – 12 Easy Steps

Advertisements

Angel wings are as popular a subject for drawing as ever, and can be used symbolically for a loved one who has passed on, or in cartoons, anime, graphic novels and the like. Please enjoy our ‘How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step by Step’ tutorial and have fun with it.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Finished Drawing

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 1 – Start with the Main Outline of the Left Wing 

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 2 – Mirror the Same Curved Line on the Other Side

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 3 – Draw the Flight Feathers 

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 4 – Draw the Flight Feathers on the Right Wing as a Mirror Image

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 5 – Add the Flight Feathers on the Bottom Half of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 6 – Join up the Start of Your First Line with the Base of the Wing

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 7 – Shade in the Top of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 8 – Add Feathery Textures to the Centre of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 9 – Draw in Another Curved Line around the Base of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 10 – Draw in Another Layer of Feathers  

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 11 – Draw One Final Layer Of Flight Feathers

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 12 – Add Curved Lines to the Outside Feathers For More Detail

You will need a pencil, sketching paper – felt tips or crayons are optional for colour. You can leave it as a pencil sketch if you want to. We have opted for an organic drawing without a ruler or drawing out a background grid. This makes the ‘angel’ look like he/she is standing a little sideways. Think of a bird in real life – one wing rarely aligns perfectly with the other!

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 1 – Start with the Main Outline of the Left Wing

Start at the bottom left of your page and draw a relaxed ‘S’ shape in a curved diagonal line. This will form the main outline of the top of the left wing.  

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 2 – Mirror the Same Curved Line on the Other Side

Now you can draw an exact mirror image of this shape on the right hand side of the page. See the picture of the video to help you with this. Now you have the outline of the tops of the two wings.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Step 1 + 2

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 3 – Draw the Flight Feathers on the Left Wing

Starting at the top of your left wing you are going to draw 3 feather (or finger) shapes which are all roughly equal sizes. Think of them as relaxed ‘n’ shapes. See the picture or video to help with this.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 4 – Draw the Flight Feathers on the Right Wing as a Mirror Image

Repeat the previous step on the right wing taking care to mirror the feathers on your left wing as closely as possible.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Step 3 + 4

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 5 – Add the Flight Feathers on the Bottom Half of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 5

Starting with the right wing you are going to draw in the feathers for the bottom halves of the two wings. Repeat this on the left wing matching the shapes of the feathers as closely as possible. Again you will be using loose ‘n’ shapes.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 6 – Join up the Start of Your First Line with the Base of the Wing

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Step 6 – Complete the Base of Each Wing as Shown on the Right

Join up the start of your first line with the bottom of each wing. Use a curved ‘n’ shape and then some smaller tighter ‘n’ shapes. Mirror this process on the other side. Now you have completed the entire outline of the two wings!

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Complete the Base of the Wings on Both Sides

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 7 – Shade in the Top of the Wings

At this point you are going to draw a curved line right across the top of the inside left wing, as shown in the picture and video. This will extend from the tip of the feather right down to the base of the wing, as shown in the picture. Mirror the same curved line on the right wing.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Shade in the Tops of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 8 – Add Feathery Textures to the Centre of the Wings

Now you can draw another curved line across the centre of each of the wings, roughly parallel to the top edge of the wings. This will add further feathery textures to the angel’s wings. As usual be careful to make sure the line on the right is as close to a mirror image of the left as you can manage.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Add a Feathery Texture to the Centre of the Wings

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 9 – Draw in Another Curved Line around the Base of the Wings

Draw another curved line to show the small feathers around the base of the left wing, as shown in the picture. Now mirror it exactly on the right wing. This will make up the small feathers around the base of the wings.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 10 – Draw in Another Layer of Feathers  

The next layer of feathers and will be like a smaller version of the bigger outline extending along the bottom edge of the wing, and will also be like the ‘n’ shapes or finger shapes we used in Step 3. Mirror the shape on the other wing.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings -Draw in Another Layer of Feathers

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 11 – Draw One Final Layer Of Flight Feathers

Now you are going to draw one final layer of feathers which are roughly going to follow the shape of your overall outline, and rise to a point. Again repeat this process on the other wing on the right hand side. See the picture to help.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Draw One Final Layer of Flight Feathers

How to Draw Angel’s Wings Step 12 – Add Curved Lines to the Outside Feathers For More Detail

This is the final step. You can now add in some curved lines around the outside flight feathers near the bottom of the wings for extra detail and sharpness. See the picture to help.

How to Draw Angel’s Wings – Final Step

If you want to draw in a male or female form in the middle of the wings you can. Or you can leave your detailed, beautiful feathered wings as they are. Halos are also optional! 

You could even make your angel a little edgier by colouring in the wings grey, or even black. It’s entirely up to you!

Bullet Drawing – How to Draw a Bullet in 7 Easy Steps

Advertisements
Bullet Drawing Completed

Welcome to our Bullet Drawing Tutorial!

You’d be amazed how many people want to create a bullet drawing. Here’s our tutorial on how to draw a bullet using a pencil to produce a really cool bullet drawing.

Table of Contents

1 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 1

2 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 2 

3 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 3 

4 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 4

5 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 5

6 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 6

7 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 7 

Bullets are used all the time in various art contexts from album covers to graphic designs, gaming designs, T-shirt designs, Anime, graphic novels, book covers, and film artworks to name just a few. They are great to draw for beginners especially but depending on the detail included can be done by more advanced artists too. 

We are going to be looking at how to draw a bullet with the point facing to the right, but it’s really up to you which way it faces – just follow our instructions but point it in the opposite direction. You could also adjust the angle of your bullet so that you can see the circular butt at the blunt end if you wish also.

1 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 1

The best place to start drawing a bullet is with the actual body of the bullet which is a long narrow rectangle. Try to make sure that the top and bottom lines of the rectangle are straight and symmetrical, and of equal length. It’s best to use a ruler here. When it comes to drawing the two ends of the rectangle remember that they are slightly curved because a bullet is basically a cylindrical shape with a point at one end.

Bullet Drawing Tutorial Step 1

2 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 2 

Now it’s time to add the shoulders of the bullet which are in the form of a trapezium shape.

Bullet Drawing Tutorial Step 2

3 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 3 

The next thing to do is to draw the neck of the bullet. Your drawing will now look a little like a flask or canister lying on its side.

Bullet Drawing Tutorial Step 3

4 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 4  

 Now you want to go ahead and add the head of the bullet which is shaped like a tall triangle which is slightly curved (rather than completely pointy) at the top. Note that your drawing will now look something like a marker on its side or a lipstick holder with the lipstick exposed.

Bullet Drawing Tutorial Step 4

5 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 5

Now you can start to work on the other end of the bullet at the rim or butt. This consists of three thin slightly curved rectangles in a row. The first rectangle fits in with the top and the bottom lines of your very first rectangle (the main body of the bullet) and then the second rectangle extends a little upward beyond the lines of the main body of the bullet to stick out a little. 

Bullet Drawing Tutorial Step 5 + 6

6 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 6 

Now the magic happens. Use the side of your pencil to shade in the bottom of the main body of the bullet so that it has a shadow which is not as a thick and dark as the bolder outlines of the bullet. Now do the same thing for the shoulders, neck and finally the head of the bullet so there is a line of shadow across the whole bottom of the bullet.

7 Bullet Drawing Tutorial – How to Draw a Bullet – Step 7 

If you would like a lighter shade along the top of the bullet. Try to imagine where the light might fall on the top of the bullet to make it as realistic as possible. This line will be lighter again than the bottom which will be in a deeper shadow.

You can now take the opportunity to rub out any lines that you don’t need with an eraser.

Bullet Drawing Tutorial Step 7

Done!

We have thoroughly researched, explored and gathered some of the best aesthetic drawings easy ideas we can find to provide a comprehensive list of the best ideas for drawing when you are just starting out.

There is no particular order of which ones are best just plenty of easy ideas for aesthetic drawings. It might also be worth writing a caption underneath your drawing for extra effect, such as ‘journey,’ ‘wanderlust,’ ‘all who wander are not lost,’ or ‘stairway to heaven.’ You choose.

1 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – An Open Book 

For the best results see if you can find one that is quite old and interesting-looking. Open it up at a page that suits you, arrange it so that it sits at a really attention-grabbing angle and draw away.

 2 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – An Arrangement of Eggs On a Table Or in a Bowl

Try and find eggs that vary in tone and colour. If you can find duck eggs for contrast (they are usually a brilliant blue) that will really add to your drawing. Try to use coloured pencils or even watercolour brush pens to capture the different tones of the shells.

3 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Pieces of a Chess Board

These could be done in charcoal or as a pencil sketch to produce a really interesting black and white contrast. You could include part of the board underneath as an extra touch.

4 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Black and White Sketch of a UFO

It’s always good for beginners to try cartoonish drawings which are fun but great practice for symmetry and dimensions. Have fun with this one in particular!

5 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Various Fruits

You could draw an apple, an orange, a banana or a grapefruit – whatever works for you! To make it more interesting slice the fruit open. You could try drawing the same piece of fruit using a variety of different mediums such as pastels, coloured pencils, graphite or perhaps watercolour brush pens (you would need to use watercolour paper here). The various shadows, tones and reflections of your chosen fruit will definitely stretch your skills!

6 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – A Piece of Furniture

This could be a bed, an antique chair or even an armchair. Nothing says human comfort like a well chosen chair, and older chairs could tell many stories.   

7 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – A Coffee Mug 

A coffee mug is as good an example of human touch and interaction as you could possibly think of. You could draw it with steam coming out to show its heat and appeal or with a hand or hands holding it. Ah, blissful.

8 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Mountains

There is nothing that says adventure quite like a picture or drawing of a mountain. Don’t aim for perfection here draw your own interpretation of a mountain in a medium of your choice – watercolour, pencil, charcoal or coloured pencil. Have fun with it. 

9 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – a Tree or Trees

Something about trees and forests calls to us and makes us think of new experiences and journeys. We all love to see paintings and drawings of trees. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to give people what they want. Including yourself. Go wild with brown, green, and enjoy the detail that can be found in Nature. Pick up a leaf or two on your way home if you like.

10 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Birds

Birds are the ultimate symbol of freedom, especially in a clear blue sky. If you find it difficult to draw a bird in flight, capture one in stillness as it’s easier. A quirky and arresting cartoonish bird can also go a long way and takes a degree of skill. This is definitely one of our favourite things to capture on paper. 

Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas – A Bird

11 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Flowers

You could see this one coming a mile off – flowers are aesthetically stunning and it’s possible to produce something really decent as a beginner. Use really interesting colours – it might be worth thinking about spring or summer flowers with beautiful reds, golds, purples and greens.

12 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Moon Shapes

As we all know the moon goes through various different phases throughout the month allowing for different moods and renderings. So many different effects can be achieved allowing for all sorts of mediums. 

13 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Candles 

A candle casts such lovely shadows and provides a beautiful opportunity for light and shade. As such it’s an amazing thing to draw for beginners (as well as more advanced artists) to make a dramatic, bold and arresting drawing. 

14 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – A Hot Air Balloon

The Hot Air Balloon is such an artistic, historic and appealing symbol of a quest or worthy journey that we had to include it here. If you have ever been in a hot air balloon you will know that it is simply one of the smoothest rides you could have which is why you will find this symbol in art, fiction and film. You can create outstanding colours for your balloon, and have it float against a sunrise or sunset, or even a night sky. Beautiful. 

15 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Creatures of the Sea

So much of the sea is still unexplored and new sea creatures are being discovered frequently. Drawings of the sea and its creatures are undeniably heart-warming and they make great subjects for beginners. Think whales, dolphins, fish, seas, sunsets and sunrises and you’re halfway to stunning art creations. 

16 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – The Sea Itself 

The sea and its constant change can be difficult to approximate but as a beginner it is possible to try to capture a simple moment, for example a wave against a beautiful sky. The sea is one of the most inspirational and enduring symbols of beauty, power and change that we know of. You could start with just one wave, and build on that.

17 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With  – Homes

Few places capture a sense of sanctuary and peace like the idea of home. Why not draw your own home, or go a little further and describe your perfect home through a drawing? Although this requires an imaginative stretch you could come up with a unique and inspirational drawing.  

18 Aesthetic Drawings Easy Ideas to Start With – Simple Images From Nature

Drawing an acorn, a fern leaf, even a blade of grass is such a great practice for beginners and more advanced artists. It teaches you to really see what is around you, and consider the variety, fragility and beauty of the many lives that cross our path. Drawing a leaf is more intricate and rewarding than it first appears, the same is true of an acorn which is the seed of an incredible tree.  A true artist learns to be aware of such things technically and emotionally.

Peach Drawing Step 9 Colour in Your Peach

Welcome to our Peach Drawing Tutorial. We are going to help you to draw a peach in a few easy steps, follow our pictures and time lapse video to help you.

All you will need is a pencil, paper and of course this helpful tutorial!

As ever we will take you through step by step, starting off with light pencil lines which you can go over with bolder darker lines, either with marker or a thicker darker pencil.  

Peach Drawing Step 1 Sketch the Outline of Your Peach

Start off by sketching the outline of your peach drawing in the middle of your page. Think of the shape as roughly circular but with a little indent at the top, and a curved almost triangular shape at the bottom. A peach could also be considered as a slightly plumper heart shape. 

Try to make sure your peach is as symmetrical as you can manage, but remember Nature isn’t perfect!

Check out the picture or the video to help you with this.

Peach Drawing Step 1

Peach Drawing Step 2 Draw the Indent At the Top of the Peach

Now you can draw in the indent that your stem will come from. It is shaped like bird wings stretched out.

Peach Drawing Step 2

Peach Drawing Step 3 Draw the Split on the Right Hand Side

Peaches and nectarines have a split down the middle so you can go ahead and draw it in now. Depending on the angle the peach is sitting at the split will be in different places. We have chosen to draw our split on the right hand side, but you could put it down the middle or more to the left. Just remember there will be a slight curve to your peach split because the fruit is a round shape.

Peach Drawing Step 3

Peach Drawing Step 4 Add in the Stem Of Your Peach

At this point we are going to add in the stem of your peach. This will look like a slightly more curved lower case ’n’ shape with a little circle at the top. You can rub out the pencil line where it overlaps with the first outline you drew.

Again check the picture or video to help you.

Peach Drawing Step 4

Peach Drawing Step 5 Draw in One Leaf At the Top of the Stem 

Now you can draw in a leaf sweeping down from the top of your stem. We have chosen to draw it on the right, but you could have a leaf on the left or even two leaves on the right and the left.

Peach Drawing Step 5

Peach Drawing Step 6 Draw the Midrib of the Leaf

Now it’s time to add in the midrib of the leaf. You are going to add the veins branching off from it in the next step.

Peach Drawing Step 6

Peach Drawing Step 7 Draw the Veins on Your Peach Leaf

You can now draw the veins branching out from the midrib of your leaf. The easiest way to do this is to think of a V shape on its side with the point of the V touching the midrib of the leaf. You can draw 4-5 of these veins or a couple more if you like.

Peach Drawing Step 7

Peach Drawing Step 8 Go Over Everything in Darker Lines

Once you are happy with your whole peach shape you can go over your lines with a marker or darker pencil lines.

Peach Drawing Step 8

Peach Drawing Step 9 Colour in Your Peach

The last step involves colouring in your peach in nice bright yellow and red colours. Your stem will be brown and your leaves green. For the purposes of authenticity you could even add in a little peach fuzz as the picture shows!

Peach Drawing Step 9

This is a lovely little drawing exercise for beginners, and good fun too!

Mushroom Drawing – How to Draw a Mushroom Step By Step

Mushroom Drawing – How to Draw a Mushroom Step By Step

Welcome to our mushroom drawing guide. This is an easy, quick and exciting thing to draw for artists at all stages and ages, but written with a beginner in mind. Mushrooms are not at all hard to draw, but as usual it’s best to pay attention to detail to produce the best possible result.

As ever we are going to draw the outline in light pencil lines, some of which we can rub out later, and then draw over in thick marker or bolder pencil lines.

How to Draw a Mushroom – Complete

Table of Contents

Mushroom Drawing Step 1 Draw the Cap of the Mushroom

Mushroom Drawing Step 2 Draw a Curvy Line Across the Cap

Mushroom Drawing Step 3 Draw the Stem of the Mushroom

Mushroom Drawing Step 4 Add in Some Grass at the Base of the Stem

Mushroom Drawing Step 5 Add in Some Spots on the Mushroom

Mushroom Drawing Step 6 – Add in More Detail to the Grass

Mushroom Drawing Step 7 – Shade or Colour in Your Mushroom Drawing

Mushrooms come in many different shapes and sizes, some are poisonous, some are good to eat. Some can even make you see things that are’t there! The poisonous ones are called usually called toadstools, but it can be very difficult to tell the difference between poisonous and edible, so leave it to the experts!

We are going to draw a fairly generic and recognisable mushroom shape, to keep things clear, and avoid confusion. Follow the pictures and the time lapse video at the end to help you piece it all together, and don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list!

Mushroom Drawing Step 1 – Draw the Cap of the Mushroom

The first step involves drawing the cap of the mushroom. Draw a semi-circle in the middle of your page, and then draw a straight line across the base of it to make your mushroom cap. Check the picture below of the video to help.

How to Draw a Mushroom Step 1

Mushroom Drawing Step 2 – Draw a Curvy Line Across the Cap

Now we are going to emphasise the top of the cap, dividing it from its underside where the gills will be. Check out the picture or video to help.

Mushroom Drawing Step 2

Mushroom Drawing Step 3 – Draw the Stem of the Mushroom

At this point we can draw in the stem of the mushroom by sketching two curved lines heading downwards. Try to make them roughly parallel so your mushroom drawing looks more realistic. Now draw a slightly curved horizontal line at the top of the stem as shown. You can rub out the line of the of the cap which should be behind the stem not over it, as the picture shows.

How to Draw a Mushroom Step 3

Mushroom Drawing Step 4 – Add in Some Grass at the Base of the Stem

Mushrooms often grow best in damp, dark places such as forests, so we are going to draw in some grass at the base of the mushroom’s stem. You can do this by sketching in some squiggly pointed lines (almost like a graph) at a slight angle. We can shade in or colour in this later.

Mushroom Drawing Step 4

Mushroom Drawing Step 5 – Add in Some Spots on the Mushroom

You can now add in some circles on the mushroom’s cap to make it look more dramatic and attention-grabbing. It might make you think of a toadstool – suggesting that your mushroom is deadly as well as cute!

Mushroom Drawing Step 5

Mushroom Drawing Step 6 – Add in More Detail to the Grass 

Now we are going to add more detail and texture to the grass. You may want to draw a leaf or even a bit of a tree trunk to show your drawing is set in a forest. You could even add a daisy or two, or a fern!

Mushroom Drawing Step 6

Mushroom Drawing Step 7 – Shade or Colour in Your Mushroom Drawing

The final step means adding in some more detail in terms of light and shade, or colour if you like. Consider where the sun/light source will be in your picture and then you add in shadow where you want to. If your light source is to the right, draw in the shadows on the left of the mushroom, and vice versa.

Mushroom Drawing –

Well done! You can now draw a mushroom!

Moon Drawing | How to Draw the Moon in 5 Easy Steps

Advertisements

Welcome to our Moon Drawing Tutorial! Today we are going to learn how to draw the moon in 5 easy steps. Don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our new blogposts!

The moon has fascinated us humans for centuries, and many myths, art, literature, and music have been created around it. People have even worshipped the moon! It has even been suggested that it is made of cheese. Who came up with that idea?! They must have been wired to the moon themselves.

It’s a really great drawing exercise which is easy and fun. We’ll take you through it step by step with pictures and a time lapse video at the end. 

Table of Contents

Moon Drawing Step 1 Draw a Circle in the Middle of the Page

Moon Drawing Step 2 Draw a Cloud at the Bottom of your Moon

Moon Drawing Step 3 Fill in the Details Inside the Moon

Moon Drawing Step 4 Shade in Your Crater Shapes

Moon Drawing Step 5 Add in Some Details to the Night Sky

Moon Drawing Step 1 Draw a Circle in the Middle of the Page

We are actually going to draw a full moon to keep things straightforward.

It could be quite difficult to draw a circle freehand so use a compass if you have one. Alternatively you could draw round your favourite mug, glass or even a circular baking cutter. It’s surprising how many circular items you can find around the house!

Moon Drawing Step 1

Moon Drawing Step 2 Draw a Cloud at the Bottom of your Moon

We are going to have our moon nestled in a cloud so draw the shape of the cloud as shown in the picture. You can make your cloud look more realistic by joining together a number of small semi-circles to make a fluffy outline. It’s best to make each little semi-circle a different size as clouds are rarely symmetrical and can seem quite random.

Moon Drawing Step 2

Moon Drawing Step 3 Fill in the Details Inside the Moon

Now we are going to add more detail to the inside of the moon. If it is a really clear night you can actually see some interesting crater shapes inside the moon, and this is the effect we are going to create. 

Draw in some random different shapes inside the moon, like the picture shows.

Moon Drawing Step 3

Moon Drawing Step 4 Shade in Your Crater Shapes

If you want to keep this pencil sketch just lean in more heavily for this to make your craters seem like shadows on the moon. If you want to colour in your moon drawing then just make sure you use a darker colour such as dark grey or black.

Moon Drawing Step 4

Moon Drawing Step 5 Add in Some Details to the Night Sky

This is where you can get creative and add your own touches. You add in some squiggly lines to show other clouds being blown about by wind, as well as add in a twinkling star or two. 

Finally you can colour in or shade in your moon drawing to add the final touches!

Moon Drawing Step 5

Now you know how to create a full moon drawing!

30 Things to Draw – Cartoon Characters

1 Things to Draw – Your Mobile Phone

This is a really easy one to start with, as few of us are ever without our phones. You may even be reading this post on your phone, so why not put it down and draw it?

The reflections on the screen alone are an interesting challenge, and you can draw the back or the front. Or both!

2 Things to Draw – A Dog

If you have your own dog then this is a no-brainer. Even if you don’t all you have to do is get a cute picture of one from Pinterest or Google Images. It can be a cartoon one or a more realistic one if you’re up to the challenge.

Things to Draw – A Dog

Getting the proportions right will improve your skills no end.

3 Things to Draw – A Cat

This leads us on naturally to drawing a cat. Again try a cartoon cat or a more real life drawing.

Things to Draw – A Cat

4 Things to Draw – A Shoe

A great way to challenge yourself is to try drawing a shoe. It isn’t as easy as it sounds. You could try one that you are wearing or someone else’s. It can be trainers, boots, high heels or whatever footwear you like! 

5 Things to Draw – A Mug of Coffee

For many of us a morning coffee is a crucial part of the day. Why not draw it? Especially if you have a cool favourite mug.

6 Things to Draw – A Glass of Wine

This leads on very naturally to drawing another beverage, hopefully one you drink in the evening this time! A wineglass, empty or otherwise is great drawing idea.

Trying to capture what the light does on the glass and what you can see through the other side in a distorted way, is brilliant practice.

Things to Draw – Wine Glass Drawing

7 Things to Draw – Candles

Candles are another fantastic drawing idea, especially in a dark room allowing you to draw the light around the candle as well. This one is particularly good if you have an attractive candle holder or can find a nice picture of one. Perhaps even an antique one.

8 Things to Draw – Something Jazzy

This is one of our favourite drawing ideas. Jazz and art have always enjoyed a close relationship so why not draw a jazz instrument? A saxophone or trumpet are the most obvious but a trombone could work really well too. 

Another idea could be something abstract based on jazz – think Kandinsky, musical notes and abstract instruments here.

9 Things to Draw – Flowers

Obvious for sure but still a great drawing idea. Obvious ideas would be peonies, roses and chrysanthemums but we would encourage you to think beyond and perhaps try something a little different.

Things to Draw – Flowers

10 Things to Draw – Beaches

Why not try drawing a beach? Beaches come in many different shapes and sizes. Some are sandy, some are made up of pebbles, some have sand dunes. The list goes on. Try drawing a beach near you, or even better imagine your own perfect beach.

11 Things to Draw – Tin Cans

Think about your favourite drink – Coke, Pepsi, Budweiser etc and draw the can crushed in different ways. This is a really personal one as it could be a soft drink can, a beer can, even a tin of sparkling water. Choose your poison. You can have fun with this by crushing the can to left or right, or even squashing it into itself from top to bottom.

Things to Draw – Tin Cans

12 Things to Draw – Stringed Instruments

We’ve already mentioned jazz instruments, but stringed instruments are a great option too. Guitars work really well for drawing ideas, but ukuleles and mandolins create a completely different vibe and are a little more unique. Violins, violas and cellos are excellent drawing ideas too.

Things to Draw – Ukulele

13 Things to Draw – Clothing

Yes we are heading in the direction of fashion here but drawing clothes is excellent practice even if you don’t want to be a fashion designer. Every artist has some sort of clothing that helps define them, be it hats, scarves, shirts, skirts or coats. Getting the shading and shape right takes skill and effort.

14 Things to Draw – Horses

Horses are a really beautiful animal that many an artist has been captured by. There are many options for drawing – a horse running, a horse standing still or a horse and rider. A more abstract drawing is always a great drawing idea too.

Things to Draw – Horses

15 Things to Draw – Cars

Whether you want to do a cartoon car or something more realistic this is a really good drawing idea. You could even draw your perfect imaginary car – perhaps based on an electric car you might drive on the moon, like a Tesla.

16 Things to Draw – Different Hairstyles

Few things define an era like a hairstyle. You could draw the hairstyle of the person next to you on the bus or train, or you could sketch the bob style of the 1920’s. These days the feminist fringe might be more your style. Go crazy with it and have fun!

17 Things to Draw – A Coin

Why not go ahead and draw a coin? It could be a coin from hundreds of years ago or one that has been minted recently. Again, coins define certain eras, as well as countries. Use your own or search up a worthy picture of a coin on Google or Pinterest. 

18 Things to Draw – A Gun

Not that we support violence in any way, but a gun is an unavoidable thing to draw for comics, films, novels, and anime to name but a few. You could go crazy and imagine your own futuristic sci-fi gun, or one that a cowboy or cowgirl might happily use. Try a rifle, a revolver, handgun or even ray-gun. You could even invent your own weapon for whatever context suits you.

19 Things to Draw – A Sword

From guns to swords and back again, we would definitely recommend learning how to draw weapons (though not use them in real life!) as they are part and parcel of so many contexts for drawing. No-one can deny the  appeal of learning how to draw a samurai sword, or even some sort of dagger. This drawing idea could keep you going for a very long time! 

20 Things to Draw – A Monster

Okay so it’s one of the most broad drawing ideas but we all need more monsters to draw in our lives. Consider Frankenstein, Werewolves, Vampires, Bigfoot or whatever works for you!

21 Things to Draw – A Skull

Yes we know it sounds a bit morbid, but drawing a skull is a basic skill for every artist. Find one in Google Images, a museum or somewhere safe… Don’t kill anyone or anything to help with this one! A sheep’s skull, a goat’s skull or something similar is a stable in most Art Departments in school. You could find one prettily easily, or better yet search Pinterest!

22 Things to Draw – A Chair

This one is a favourite with us because it presents lots of possibilities. You could draw an armchair, a fancy dining room chair, a bedroom chair  or even a small child’s chair. Go crazy with this and find your own favourite chair to draw, or imagine what your perfect chair might look like – complete with manoeuvrability, drinks holder or whatever suits you.

23 Things to Draw – Birds

This is a really open-ended drawing idea – you could draw anything from a sparrow to an eagle. The feathers are a particular challenge and this exercise will help you become a better artist in so many different ways.

24 Things to Draw – Jewellery

Find a piece of jewellery that you really love and draw it. It could be a ring, an earring, a bracelet, or even a necklace. Imagine where the light source in your drawing might be and showcase that sparkle in your drawing.

25 Things to Draw – A Bar Of Soap

This is a surprising thing to draw but somehow it works. We use soap every day (hopefully!) but it can be an excellent thing to draw. You might even want to include a few soap bubbles too!

26 Things to Draw – A Bicycle

A lot of people love to cycle so don’t miss out on this possibility for drawing. Cycling is great exercise but drawing a bike is also a great exercise! 

27 Things to Draw – Vintage Photos

This is a really great way to improve your drawing, and it might even leave you smiling. Find some of your old photos, family ones or if that is too painful, photos of past holidays are perfect. Do your best to convert them into a drawing, and enjoy the nostalgia!

28 Things to Draw – Old Toys

We all have old toys lying around that don’t have any monetary value so why not draw them? From Transformers to My Little Pony, drawing ideas abound. 

29 Things to Draw – Old Portrait Photos

One of the best drawing ideas we could think of would be old photos of people’s faces. It could be your grandmother or a famous face from the past. Whatever way you look at it drawing faces is a difficult but rewarding experience, and it will help you improve your drawing no end.

30 Things to Draw – Cartoon Characters

What could be more fun than drawing your favourite cartoon characters? All you need is to find some pictures on Google Images, whether it be Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny or a character from the Simpsons, or Rick and  Morty. This is always fun. Every time.

Cloud Drawing – How to Draw a Cloud in 7 Easy Steps

Advertisements
Cloud Drawing – Complete

Welcome to our latest tutorial to help you create a cloud drawing! We’ll take you through our easy steps complete with pictures and a time lapse video.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our mailing list so you can be first to be notified about our latest articles!

As usual all you will need for this is a decent pencil, a rubber and good paper, not to mention this cloud drawing tutorial. Colours are optional as you may want to colour or shade in at the end. 

Remember to start off your drawing with nice light lines which you can go over in darker lines later. It’s always easier to rub out lighter lines later on!

Table of Contents

Cloud Drawing Step 1 Draw the Top of the Cloud

Cloud Drawing Step 2 Complete the Left Side of the Cloud’s Outline

Cloud Drawing Step 3 Finish the Right Side of the Cloud’s Outline

Cloud Drawing Step 4 Draw in the Base of the Cloud

Cloud Drawing Step 5 Fill in More Detail on The Inside of the Cloud

Cloud Drawing Step 6 Draw Over Your Outline with Bolder Lines 

Cloud Drawing Step 7 Shade or Colour in Your Cloud

Cloud Drawing Step 1 Draw the Top of the Cloud

Start off by drawing an upside down semi-circle as shown in the picture. You will want to have it near the top of your page to leave you enough room to stretch your cloud out to the right and left, as well as fit in the base of your cloud further down the page.

Cloud Drawing Step 1

Cloud Drawing Step 2 Complete the Left Side of the Cloud’s Outline

Draw the outline of the left part of the cloud using more semi-circular shapes joined together, as shown in the picture. It will look more ‘cloud-like’ if the semi-circles are different sizes and not all the same. Clouds are never uniform – they taken on random patterns.

The two sides of the cloud will look more realistic if they are not even so don’t worry about being too precise here.

Cloud Drawing Step 2

Cloud Drawing Step 3 Finish the Right Side of the Cloud’s Outline

Now do the same on the other side, and don’t worry if your right side is longer or shorter than the other side, enjoy the randomness!

Cloud Drawing Step 3

Cloud Drawing Step 4 Draw in the Base of the Cloud

Now it’s time to draw the base of the cloud which will be a little flatter and longer than the top and sides. See the picture of video to help you.

Cloud Drawing Step 4

Cloud Drawing Step 5 Fill in More Detail on The Inside of the Cloud

Draw in some more semi-circles inside the cloud to make it seem more wispy and puffy. You can follow the picture or have the wisps go in a different direction to make your cloud more unique. Have fun with it!

Cloud Drawing Step 5

Cloud Drawing Step 6 Draw Over Your Outline with Bolder Lines 

Now you can go over your outline and the middle of your cloud in bolder lines or with a marker or dark colouring pencil if you want. Now you are ready for your final step!

Cloud Drawing Step 6

Cloud Drawing Step 7 Shade or Colour in Your Cloud

All you have to do now is colour or shade in your cloud. Obviously clouds are generally white, and rain clouds are grey. However you can try a light blue or even yellow in places to show the sun shining through. 

It’s always good practice to think of where the light source is coming from so that you can have lighter and darker patches on your cloud. Obviously if the light is coming from the left the right side of your cloud will be shadier.

Cloud Drawing Step 7

There you have it! Now you can draw a cloud!

How to Draw Sunflowers – Equipment

Sunflowers are one of the most beautiful flowers period, so we should all try to learn how to draw sunflowers. This easy tutorial will help you do just that, and as ever we have included pictures and a time lapse video to guide you. 

Don’t forget to sign up to our email list to be informed first about our new articles!

If it’s good enough for Van Gogh it should be good enough for us too!

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 8

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 9

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 10

All you need for this sunflower drawing is a decent sharp pencil and paper.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 1 Draw a Small Circle for the Sunflower’s Centre

First up you are going to draw a small circle in the middle of your page. This is the centre of the sunflower, and we will add more detail to it later. See the picture or video to help.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 1

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 2 Draw a Larger Circle Around the First One

Now all you need to do to complete the ‘eye’ of the sunflower is to draw a large circle around the first small one. It will look more realistic if you make it quite a rough, sketchy circle like you can see in the picture below.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 2

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 3 Draw in the First Layer of Petals

At this point you can draw in the first layer of petals all around the outside of the ‘eye,’ of the sunflower. Think of your petals as being shaped like a stretched out triangle with a slight curve  in the lines.

It will make your drawing more realistic if one or two of your petals droop or point in a slightly different direction, but overall it’s best to try and keep your petals the same size and shape. Check out the picture beneath to help.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 3

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 4 Draw in the Second Layer Behind the First

You can now go ahead and draw in a second layer of petals on your sunflower, between the petals on your first layer. This second layer will look like it is behind the first layer. See the picture to help.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 4

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 5 Add more Detail to the Sunflower’s Eye

Now we are going to fill in more detail to the two circles the centre of the sunflower. As you can see in the video the middle of a sunflower is roughly textured and almost ‘furry.’ Starting with the smaller circle at the centre you can draw in a few dots, as shown in the picture.

You can now move on to the larger circle and draw in a number of small semi-circles to show the furry texture of the sunflower. You will need quite a few here. Check out the picture to help you.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 5

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 6 Draw Lines Inside the Petals 

At this point we are going to add in some extra details to your petals. You can do this by adding in around 3-4 short vertical lines at the base of your petals as shown in the picture.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 6

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 7 Draw the Sunflower’s Stem

Now it’s time to add the stem of the flower. It’s just a simple matter of drawing two vertical lines close together going down from the bottom of the sunflower.

You may want to add in a couple of thin stems with leaves on them coming out from the main stem, like we have done, if you like. It’s entirely up to you. Again check out the picture or the video to help.

How to Draw Sunflowers Step 7

Now you can to shade or colour in your sunflower. You may want to draw over the outline in pen and use pastels like we have done.

Think of where the light source will be in your picture and shade in the brighter points and shadows on your sunflower accordingly.

All done! Now you can draw a sunflower!

Diamonds are of course one of the most highly priced items in the world and take millions of years to form. hey also happen to be a lot of fun to draw, and don’t worry we’ll have you drawing one in no time at all. You can shade it in at the end to make it look more 3dimensional, or colour it in if you like. 

How to Draw a Diamond Step 1 Start with a Straight Line

Step 1 is super easy, you just need to draw a straight line from left to right about a third of the way down your page as shown in the picture. This is going to be the beginning of the top of the diamond.

How to Draw a Diamond Step 1

How to Draw a Diamond Step 2 Draw Two Lines to Form the Bottom Point

Now you can to make an upside down equilateral triangle by drawing two lines at a 45 degree angle to meet in a point and form the bottom of the diamond. Check out the picture or the video to help.

How to Draw a Diamond Step 2

How to Draw a Diamond Step 3 Draw Two Lines Upwards at the Top

It’s time to start drawing the top of the diamond by drawing two diagonal lines at a 45 degree angle from the first line you drew in Step 1. Make sure they are both the same length and angle as shown in the picture.

How to Draw a Diamond Step 3

How to Draw a Diamond Step 5

How to Draw a Diamond Step 6 Draw a Last Triangle Inside the Trapezium Top

We are now going to make one last triangle inside your diamond inside the ‘trapezium’ shape at the top middle of your diamond, as the picture shows. Start at the corner of this trapezium shape and draw another diagonal line which will end in the middle of the straight line you drew in Step 4. Repeat this from the other corner of the trapezium shape, again finishing in the middle of the straight line at the very top of your diamond.

How to Draw a Diamond Step 6

Now you can shade or colour in your diamond. Try to think of where the light source would be in your picture to capture the shadows and sparkles. We have imagined the light source coming from the top left of the page, and shaded it in accordingly.

Add some extra sparkle if you like! 

Congratulations! You have now drawn a lovely diamond! Check the video below for the whole process!

All you will need is a pencil and sketching paper.

Don’t forget to sign up to our email list to be the first to get notified about these high value posts.

Wolf Drawing Easy – Step 1 Draw the Head

In the centre of your page draw the shape of the wolf’s head as shown in the picture. Think of it as a flower pot shape but furry! Make sure it is as symmetrical as possible, and nicely placed in the middle of your page.

How to Draw a Wolf Easy Tutorial Step 1

How to Draw a Wolf Easy Tutorial – Step 2 Draw the Left Ear

Now you are going to draw the outline of the wolf’s left ear, as the picture shows. Draw a loose triangle shape beginning at the left side of the head and moving downwards until the ear finishes roughly one third down the left hand side of the head. When we draw the eyes in they will start roughly level with the end of the ear.

How to Draw a Wolf Easy Tutorial Step 2

How to Draw a Wolf Easy Tutorial – Step 3 Draw the Inside of the Left Ear

At this point you can draw in another triangle outline inside the ear to show the tip of the ear. You can also draw a squiggly line halfway down the ear, splitting it in half and showing the wolf’s fur.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 3

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 4 Draw the Right Ear

Repeat Step 2 but the other way around to draw the outline of the right ear. Make sure you finish the outline of the ear in line with the end of the left ear.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 5 Draw the Inside of the Right Ear

Repeat Step 3 but again the other way around to complete the inside of the right ear. Use the pictures and video to help.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 6 Draw the Fur Between the Ears

You can now draw a squiggly line for the fur between the wolf’s ears at the top of its head.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 4,5 and 6

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 7 Draw the Left Eye

Starting roughly in line with the bottom of the left ear, you are now going to draw the wolf’s left eye which is roughly oval shaped, as shown in the picture. Draw in the pupil as shown in the picture as well.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 7

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 8 Draw the Right Eye

Now repeat the same thing for the right eye so they are symmetrical and a mirror image of each other.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 8

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 9 Draw the Beginning of the Snout

Underneath the eyes draw two stretched out semi-circular lines to form the snout, as the picture shows.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 9

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 10 Draw the Nose

Now you can draw the nose at the end of the wolf’s snout as a rough circle with two holes for the nostrils.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 10

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial – Step 11 Finish off the Snout

Draw the rest of the snout as an upside down semi-circle which finishes just under the nose as shown.

How to Draw a Wolf Easy Tutorial Step 11

How to Draw a Wolf Easy Tutorial – Step 12 Draw in the Mouth

Now draw in the mouth under the snout as a smaller, neater upside down semi-circle, as show in the picture.

Wolf Drawing Easy Tutorial Step 12

You can now choose to go back and shade in your wolf in greater detail or even colour it in if you wish. The inside of the ears will be lighter, as will the eyes, and the paler patches around the eyes. Grey wolves usually have whitish fur halfway down the head stretching down to their chest fur, and on the underside of their muzzles.

The nose and line of the mouth will be darker with the fur overall being quite a dark grey (unless you want your wolf to have a completely black mane).

Whether you are drawing a cowboy or a futuristic robot, hero or villain, drawing a gun skilfully will really make your whole drawing so much more impactful. This is a fairly simple gun drawing but as ever getting it right will depend on attention to detail and perseverance.

All you will need for this is a pencil and paper.

The last step in your gun drawing is to draw the magazine release behind the trigger.

Now all you need to do is add the finishing touches in terms of shading and lighting. Think about where the light source in your picture would be coming from.
