Learning to draw


Dec 25, 2011
Seeing as how you love drawing, seems you're the best person to ask. What are some guides and/or apps you recommend for learning to draw? I used to do some sketchy sketches when I was in school and I know I have the ability to do some great drawing, I would just like some easy to follow and easy to understand guides and/or tools to help me get started.

I've got a bunch of great recommendations at the bottom of this post: How to draw and write with your Apple Pencil like a pro | iMore

But what it basically comes down to is: Draw. A lot. All the time. Look at your favorite artists and find timelapses from them if possible. (Aaron Blaise, who worked on the Lion King, has an AMAZING YouTube art channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0lLeNdvLrFozQRsQ1TQiAw)

I'm bad at this, but going to live sketchgroups in your area is also highly recommended. (And you meet new people!)
