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.

Wow I think it's an interesting idea to draw like this. I want to try it, but also just make it mine. I don't need to steal someone's style, it will be inspiration ;)

this is very helpful (and reading everybody''s comment as well ^^), I tend to stress too much on drawing the details, with the results that I have problems 'building' the figures (and usually ends up being 'weird' , not proportioned etc). I always thought that using reference was 'baaaad' (LOL), felt like copying or something but lately I started and, have to say, I improved. Hopefully eventually I'll develop my skills well enough to be able to just use my immagination, and my charas won't be stiff XD
another thing I realised is that when I'm impatient or rush things, the drawings are terribles, so really we should relax and take a deep breath before grabbing the pencil XD I was watching Villppu's videos some time ago and he said ' difficulty in drawing is just in the mind, the tecniques are actually quite easy to learn' and it made me think. I think it's similar to what you're trying to show us here.
Thank you for this XD

Fantastic - easy to manage, nice breakdown of a complicated process to a point it can be instinctively grasped and exercised!
