1. Introduction to This Course and Supplies You Will Need!: Hey, friends. How are you? I hope you're having a great day. I'd like to welcome you to this course. This is my farm animals drawing step by step course. And this is a course that is designed especially for beginners. You do not need to have any experience in drawing at all to be successful in this course. I'd like to go over this supplies in the materials that you will need in this course. The first thing that you'll need is paper. I just use copy paper from my printer. It works very, very well. But if you don't have this type of paper, that's okay. Just use any paper that you have in your home. You'll also need something to draw with. I like to draw with a marker, a permanent marker, because it offers a nice dark line. But you can also use ah, pencil or oil pastels. You can use crayons if you have those around your house. Or you can use colored pencils where you can use markers, or you can use a combination of all of these. If you'd like to do that, please continue watching this video For some examples of the drawings that we will create. I'm excited about teaching you this course and having you follow along with me. So I'll see you in the next video. 2. How to Draw a Cow!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we're going to meet making a baby cow. So let's get started. The first thing that you want to do in the middle of your paper is you'll want to make a normal shape on top of this oval shape. We're going to make a letter C like this. Now we're going to make some ears at the top of our cows head, and we're also going to make some horns. So curved line and then coming down curve line and they're coming down straight. The next thing that we're going to do is make some really large ovals and inside those ovals, we're going to make some smaller circles and we're going to fill in the bottom part of those ovals. And I'm noticing something right now are noticing that this eyes a lot bigger than this one , so I'm just going to make that one a little bit bigger. It's easy to dio. It's easy to fix. The next step is I'm going to come down to my house knows, and I'm going to make some really large nostrils, and I'm going to also make a smile for my cows body. I'm going to come out and come down. So this is This is almost like a curved line, like a J almost. And then for his front legs. You come down, you come over, you go up, go over, come down and then you close up. Let me go over that again because that was a lot. So you start at the middle of your cows face you come down with a straight line, then you go over. Then you come back up with another straight line. Then you go over with a really long line. Then you come down with a little line and then you go over. I know it's a lot if you have to re watch this video over and over to get it, go ahead and do that behind this leg. We're going to make a little box, and that's going to be the leg from the other side of our cow. And then we're going to do the same thing on this side. Let's make a hook and a hoof and then a tale. Let's double up that tail and that's just a curved line. And then at the top will make a teardrop shape. Now, if you'd like your cow tow, have some spots and go ahead and make some spots on your cow. It's always fun to make spots. They're just organic shapes, meeting that. You just kind of figure out what looks the best. And then you just make a shape. Doesn't have to be circles or squares or anything like that. Even if you want to put something here at the top of his head, that's sometimes a nice idea. You know what I forgot on her cow? I forgot some eyelashes. So let's come out with just to eyelashes just like that. Now I think I'm going to have my cow on a farm, so I'm going to make a line and then I jump over my cow and then I make another line and then I'm going to have a little fence. So I'm going to have a line here in a line here, and then I'm going to make another line on top of that, and then I'm going to come down with some straight lines that'll just make a little fence to keep him safe, just like this. See how I'm doubling up these lines right here. Here we go. Now, down here. I think I'll put a little bit of grass mark how to eat if he gets hungry. And then up here, I think I'm going to put some clouds in the sky. Maybe just one or two, maybe three. When I'm doing art, I kind of look at my project. And then I decide at that moment what I'm going to Dio and I think I'm really happy with this. I think I just need one more bit of grass right here. All righty, friends. I hope that you enjoyed this project. Will see you next time. Bye. 3. How to Draw a Scarecrow!: Today we will be making a scarecrow. So let's get started. The first thing that will want to do is we will want to make a curve line right underneath that curve line. We're going to make another curve line, and then we're going to close those two lines up with very small lines like that. On top of this first line that we drew, we're going to make a hat, and so we're going to make a line. That's kind of Kirby like this. Underneath here, we're going to do is we're going to make our scarecrow's face. So we're going to make a nice round base that looks like this. If yours is not as round as this, that's OK. Just do the best that you can. Now we're going to make some eyes for our scarecrow. If you'd like to make some eyebrows, you can go ahead and do that, and then we'll make a nose a little triangle. And then let's make a mouth a smiling. Now, with two circles at the end, the rue, this Linus curved line. Let's make some stitch marks, some little lines and then let's give our scarecrow a little bit of hair. So if you could think of a way that you like to make hair, go ahead and do that. I'm just going to make some curve lines coming out from the bottom of his hat. Now, down here below, we're going to make our Scarecrow caller. So just a line it looks similar to this year's is not going to look exactly like man. And that's okay. And then we're going to make online, coming out this way and online coming out this way, these air going to be the shoulders and arms of our scarecrow. Now what we're going to do is we're going to make the shirt. So let's come up with the slanted line in. Let's come up with another slanted line and then we'll come straight down. Now what we're going to do is we're going to put some overalls on our scarecrows, so those were just going to be some lines coming down like this all the way down to the end of your paper. And then, if you'd like to put some buttons here or a patch, you can go ahead and do that. I think I'm going to put some buttons maybe I'll put a patch here with a couple of stitches on each side of it. Maybe I'll even put a patch up here. A patch is just a piece of fabric that holds together other pieces of fabric. Alrighty. So for the background, I think what I'm going to do is I'm just going to make a line, not a super straight line like this. And maybe I'll even put I just had the best idea. I think I'm going to put some pumpkins down here, so I have a circle and then I put a little stem on them and then I'll put some lines. I'll put a couple over here on this site as well, maybe two smaller ones so we can see that our scarecrow is in a pumpkin patch. I'll put one right here. Now what we're going to do is we're going to make a crow or a bird on the shoulder of our scarecrow, so a bird can be any shape that you want, so it could be a shaped like this, or it could be just a oval shape, or it could be more of a square shape. It's completely up to you, but let's make our bird stand on the shoulder of our scarecrow. Let's make sure we give him and I and a big and a little wing and maybe a little crown for the top of his head. And even if you'd like to make a little tail coming out the back, that's always cute for the background. I think I'll put a few clouds in the sky behind him. Maybe one more small one up here when I'm drawing like this, I like to use all of my space. Now take a look at your drawing and see if there's anything else that you'd like to add on your scarecrow. No. What? I think I'm gonna add Cem cheeks right here. I like that. All right. Have a good day. I'll see next time. Bye. 4. How to Draw a Horse!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating ah horse. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is start with our horse's ears. So I'm going to make a slanted line here and a slanted line here. Now I'm going to make a curve line that's connected to those slanted lines, and those are going to be the horse's ears right here in this space. I'm going to make part of his main, and that's going to be kind of a zigzag e line that's connecting both of his ears. Now we're going to come down with the straight line, that slightly diagonal, and then we're going to come in a little bit like this with another line, and then we're going to close that up with a straight line and then coming down from the top. We're going to come down, will come down, and then we go to a point here, and this is going to be a design in the middle of our horses face. Now let's make some eyes were going to make our eyes on the side of his head like this and horses. A lot of times have really long eyelashes, some great to make some curve lines coming out like this coming down here. Horses have really large nostrils, and then I'm going to make a shape that looks like this. So basically, you come down, you go over and you go back up. And that's going to be my horse's mouth now for horses body. What we're going to do is we're going to come out Street and then we're going to carve around and come down and then said, This is the back side of our horse and this is the back leg, and so the for the front leg, we're going to come down from the mouth area and we want to make this line approximately the same length is this line will come in a little bit, will come in a little bit on the side, and then we'll come up, will come up with a straight line and then we'll come over and then this is the front leg and this is the front leg on the back, and then we will make a back leg as well on each side. Let's make a hoof, so that's just a small line going across the bottom. And then let's make a mean so those could just be Cem slanted lines or straight lines. It's up to you coming down off the back of our horse. And then let's also make a tale just some curvy lines coming out the back side. Now for the background for our horse. Let's make a little bits. So let me show you how to do that. We're going to first start with some grassy area. Doesn't have to be perfectly straight. But what you do need to dio is when you're going along and you hit the horse's leg, you pick up your marker and then come back after you go over your horse and then you start with your lineup again to make the FNC. We have straight line, straight line upside down V straight line, straight line upside down. V. I ran into my horse and then let me make one over here a swell straight line, straight line upside down. B. Now I'm going to come back through, make a straight line and follow through, and then I'm going to make a line. It's parallel to that first line, and then I'm going to do it again a little bit lower. See how I jumped right over my horse's body. So it looks like the horses in front Uh, the DNC close that up a little there. Here we go. Now, what you can do is you condemn, create the background. So I think I'll put a little bit of grass here. This is how I like to make grass. If you want to make some little lines like this, that's always a cool way to make grass as well. Or if you can think of another thing that you'd like to put down here some flowers or some hay or something, it's up to you. And then for the background. I think I'm just going to put some clouds. You can put birds, you can put a rainbow, you can put a ladybug. You could put a son anything that you like already. Friends. I hope you like this lesson. I'll see you next time 5. How to Draw a Barn!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we will be creating a barn. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to want to dio is we're going to go slightly off to the left hand side of our piece of paper because our barn is going to be on this side and are silo that's going to be attached to the barn is going to be over here on the right side. So we're going to start with the dot towards the left side of your piece of paper. From this dot we're going to make a diagonal line in a diagonal line and then we're going to make another diagonal line coming down like this and you want to make sure that your two diagonal lines end up about the same. I think I need to extend this one just a little bit more. There we go. Now let's close this up like this, and what we're going to do is on the inside of this, we're going to make more diagonal lines and this line to be straight down here at the bottom. Watch what? I mean, so we go like this and we follow along those first lines and then we close that up at the bottom. So this is the roof of are barred now, inside this section. What we're going to do is we're going to create a window. So we're going to come down a critical cross and we're going to come down. We're not going to close up the bottom part because what we're going to do here is we're going to put some Hey, some Hey, that sticks out of the bottom. Okay, So let me show you how I did that. I came out from the bottom of her window and I just made some zigzag lines. And then I closed those exact lines up with a curved line so it looks like a little bit of hay is coming out from our barn. Now let's go down here to the bottom and create the bottom part of our bar. So straight line in a straight line, and then we're going to close up those two straight lines at the bottom inside here. We're going to make more lines that are running parallel to those initial lines. Parallel means just go along as closely as you can without touching the initial lines. So now what we're going to do is we're going to divide the shape in half like this. And this is these are going to be our barn doors. They opened up like this or open up like this. Now what we're going to do is we're going to create some Big X is here. So let me show you how I'm going to do that. We're going to come down like this. So I started not exactly in the middle, but a little bit over from the middle. And then I just made a straight line coming down like this. This is kind of tricky to do to get in the right spot, so just do the best that you can. That's what I always try to dio. Mine aren't exactly where they they should be. But that's OK. Now we do this again on this side and we follow along with another parallel line like that . And then we do the same thing on the other side. So we come down, we come down and then we do the same thing over here. Come down and come down, keep in mind humans air, not machines. And I'm not working with a ruler on it right now, so things are not going to be exactly straight, and that's OK because it gives things more character. If they're not exactly straight. That's how I like to think about it. All right, let's move it to the top of our barn and let's put a little weathervane so can help us determine what the weather is going to be. So we have a circle coming straight up. We have a circle with a dot inside, and then we're going to come down with a straight line and then we're going to make two lines, one coming this way and one coming this way and they're going to meet right in the middle. We're going to put some V's on the end of each one of those lines and maybe even a circle down here. All right, let's move over to our silo. So what we're going to do is we're going to make a tall tower right here, and it's going to look like it's attached, so I'm not going to make it separate from our burn. I'm going to make it attached. So I think I'll start about right here and will come down and all touch my barn. Then I will come over and then I will come straight down like this. And then once I get to the bottom, I close up at the top of my silo. I'm going to make a curved line like this, and then inside, you could make a window if you like. I've not seen a lot of silos in my life, so I'm just kind of decorating at the way that I think would look nice. If you want to make this look different, please go ahead and do that. All right, so let's make the ground that our barn is sitting on. So basically I made a line here. I jumped over my barn in my silo, and then I came out the other side because I don't want to go through it, because if I don't go through it, then it'll make it look like the barn is in front of this line. That's what I want. That's the look I want. Then I want to put maybe a little bit of grass. Then, if you'd like to put something in the background, go ahead and do that. Maybe I'll put offense. So to make offense, we've make two lines and then of be at the top two lines and then a Viet, the top. And then we have a line jump over a line in the line and we do the same thing with a parallel line. And then we do this once more, down at the bottom. So it looks like a little fence. You could even bring it out to this side you like. Now I think I'd like to put a few nice, big, fluffy clouds in the background. Maybe just to. And if you'd like to add, a few animals small animals down here at the bottom of you have room. Go ahead and do that. It's up to you. Right? Thank you for watching my video. I'll see you next time 6. How to Draw a Pig!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we're going to be creating a pig, So let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to dio is make a nice around circle on the left side of your piece of paper. Now that's going to be our faces head. We're going to make some ears that are upside down, these coming out from the top of our pig's head, and then we're going to move into the face. So let's make two ovals. And inside those two ovals, let's make a circle at the top, a small circle, and then we're going to fill in the bottom part with our marker, and that's going to create a couple of little shine marks or reflection marks in eyes. Now we're going to go down to the bottom of our circle, and we're going to make an oval with two dots that air filled in inside that mobile that's going to be our picks snout and then a dot down below, that's going to be the mouth of our pig. If you want to change this to a smile or a frown or anything else, you can go ahead and do that as well to create our pigs body. We're going to start here in the middle of our circle and we're going to make a curve line coming up and then coming down past the line of our base of our pig. So we're going a little bit further now. We're going to go to the bottom of our base of our pig and make us straight line coming down here. These two lines should be about even So we're going to make our pig's feet down here. Picks feet have of be upside down. Be like this in an upside down. Be here and then we come up and then we come up. We come over with a curved line and now we're going to go and we're going to make some back feet some back legs like this. So it's a straight line coming down, and then a slanted line coming up. Same in the back, straight line coming down and a slanted line coming up. Now, if you'd like to fill in the foot area, you could do that. So make a straight line and then fill that in with your marker or your crayon or whatever you're using to draw. I said, Go ahead and fill that in and I'll do the back. One is well and we'll do this backward. And this from one. Here we go. Now let's put a little tail on the back of our piggies body and then let's make a little background for a pig. Oh, he's looking so cute, isn't he? Let's put a little background, so we'll put a line. And did you notice how I jumped over my pig? And then I'm going out the back like this. And I think I'd like to have my piggy standing in a puddle of mud, some great to make just north organic shape, which is a shape that's, uh, doesn't really have any particular weight. It's going so you could just make any type of shape that you'd like, and then maybe I'll put a couple of clouds up here in the sky to show that it's a nice day . If you'd like to add a little bit of grass or flowers, anything that you'd like, go ahead and do that Now. There you go. There's my pinky. I hope you enjoy this lesson. You next time 7. How to Draw a Llama!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a lama. So let's get started. The first thing that will want to do is we want to make two lines coming straight down these air going to be our llamas ears. If your lines are a little bit diagonal, meaning they're not straight up and down, that's okay. If they come in a little bit towards each other at the top of these lines were going to make a curved line and then we're going to come down. So a curved line and then we're going to come down. Now we're going to close up that space with a curved line. These were going to be here. Llamas, ears. Let's put a little bit of detail in the ears by making some curved lines that are hooked together at the end. Now let's move down to our llamas face, so we're going to make straight line and then come down to a slight point straight line, come down to a slight point. Now let's go down to his neck. Rama's have really long necks, but I don't have a lot of space on my paper. So I'm just going to go down is long and as far as I can. No. I'm going to come back up to my llamas face and add a little bit of detail. I'm going to make some very large eyes and they're going to be wide set. Meaning they're going. They're not going to be close together on the piece of paper. They're going to be wide apart from each other. Then I'm going to make a shine mark, and then I'm going to color the bottom part of the I in with my marker that will make them nice and dark to complete the I. I'm going to make some really long eyelashes. Now, remember, boy, llamas and girl Long was both have long eyelashes. Now I'm going to come down here and I'm going to make an oval shape. This is for the mouth in the news area. And then inside here, I'm going to make the nose, which is a straight line and then kind of a soft V for the bottom part of the nose. And I'm going to fill that in with some black and I'm going to make it just a small smile. Those air to Jay's right there. Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to create a background for my lama. So I'm going to make ah horizon line going here. I jump over my mama like that, and I think I'm going to make a big, tall mountain right here with a little bit of snow at the top. And then over here on this side, I think I'm going to make a mountain. It's not quite as big. It's maybe more like a hill coming up like that. I think I'll add a few clouds, a big, white, fluffy cloud here and maybe a smaller one here. I think I'm really happy with that. I might even add a little bit of greenery right here for a little bit more detail. There we go. There's our lama. I hope that you enjoyed this lesson. See you next time 8. How to Draw a Chick!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a chick. So let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to do is make a circle nice and thick on your paper. After you make your circle, we are going to make some features for the face on the circle, and these are going to be the features of our chick. So let's make some wide set eyes. Those are just going to be some ovals inside the oval. You're going to put a smaller circle at the very top and then fill in the bottom with your marker or your pencil or whatever you're drawing with. Let's put a little bit of feathers at the top and then for his mouth. We're going to make a shape that looks like this. It's kind of tricky, so you might want to practice it. It comes up and then it comes back down like that. It almost looks like he's smiling. Now we close that up with a very wide letter you, and then underneath we make one more wide letter you that's going to be our chicks mouth. All right, Now we're going to go down to his body and we're just going to make a shape that looks like this. It's almost like I you, but it's a lot more rounded and inside that we're going to add a little bit of detail, almost looks like an upside down letter seat. Let's add a few little wings. So we come down and then we come back up and this one, I think I'd like to stick out a little bit more. So I come out 123 and then I go back in for his feet or just going to make some lines coming down and then some toes, which are some straight lines. All right, let's make a background. So for my background, I think I just want him to be out in a meadow, so I need a line that is not going to go through his body. If you decide to make your line up a little bit, you would jump over his body and continue your line on the other side. I think I'd like to make some flowers, so I'm just going to make some daisies like this. You leave and then maybe I'll make another small flower over here. Leaf. Maybe a little bit of grass. It's completely up to you as to what you'd like to make. I think what I'd like to do now is I'd like to put a few clouds in the sky. Some people like to put a son. Some people like to make birds flying. It's up to you. This is your artwork. So you get to do what you want to dio one. We're cloud up here Small, warm already. Friends. I hope you enjoy this lesson. I'll see you next time. Bye.
