    Learn all of the materials involved in sketching and drawing and also some basic shading techniques and sketching concepts.

    In this video, I start off going through all of the materials you're going to need for learning to sketch and draw. Once you have a better understanding of those, you can start drawing simple shapes and lines and practicing sketching with an HB, B, or 2B pencil. These are good pencils for sketching lightly but also allow you to go a little darker when needed for shading. I plan to cover perspective, values, edges, shading techniques, proportions, landscapes and many other topics of sketching and drawing for beginners and intermediate artists.

                Ok, I just learned how to draw a circle for the first time....and I am 50. LOL. I have always complained that I can't even draw a circle but apparently my problem has been committing and not sketching. Oo This. Changes. Everything.

                  Why is it that when people who have actual skill drawing and when they draw random shapes and squiggles it looks like a masterpiece but when I do it it looks like a four-year-old did it😂😂

                          Anyone have this happen when you literally have nothing else to do but draw you can't think of anything but when you're in school you randomly get inspiration and then you get home and you're like "WHY CANT I REMEMBER"... No just me ok😂😂😂

                                Someone encouraged me to draw, it was a girl who has a crush on me, I love her too, she’s good at drawing and I want to make her feel better by having something in common with her.

                                    I have no money, so I've bought very cheap pencil crayons and a sketchbook. I do not have an eraser, but I will try my best.

                                    When you said it’s about “finding the line within the lines” that was like the sentence I needed to hear in order to practice and make sense of this. Amazing job. I’ll be sure to watch more of your videos in the coming weeks and hopefully longer!

                                    Well...all these years...I never got a chance to learn the art of sketching...coz I thought I need to do it from childhood...and it's difficult..and noone guided..nor do I got a chance...I hope the very way of u teaching that just draw untill u figure out what exactly we r looking..actually gave me hope that I can still pursue my dream of learning sketch...thanks...and keep motivating
