About This Class

Welcome to daily drawing for 2020!

Just by looking at this class you are on your way to cultivating a daily drawing practice!

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.” Mark Twain

A bit about me, your drawing cheerleader and guide:

My name is Emily and one day I made it a goal to draw daily for one whole year. That was three years ago. And I still draw every day.

 

It has improved my skills immensely. I’m still not an amazing artist (you might even be better than me!) but I do have the drive and determination to not give up. 

People ask all the time how to maintain a daily drawing practice amidst real life. I’m a mom to three small boys, I work, I cook dinner every night, I juggle all the balls mamas have to juggle, and still find a moment each day to draw. I know real life, and I’d like to give you guidance, encouragement and a few principles on how you can make it work for your life too. 

“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”– Confucius

Each month I’ll provide you with a small workbook with practice sheets, a schedule of prompts for that month, positive quote art and a video each day where you can draw with me. 

I also have set up a Facebook group called Daily Drawing 2020 where we can post together and encourage each other as artists (good vibes only- trolls will be kicked back under the bridge) 

Also on Instagram you can post with the hashtag #drawingdaily2020 and look for fellow artists also following along in the class. 

I’m so happy you want to take these first steps with me!

Let’s get started!

Transcripts

1. March Intro: Hi, I'm Emily, And I'm doing a yearlong series of drawing daily in 2020. And if you just joined this here in March, that's sign your daily drawing practice concert right here today. Um, and if you've been here through January in February, I'm glad you're back. Um, in February, we had, uh, kind of a harder, prompt list. We were going through old artists and learning about their styles and learn about our own style and all that. And now we're gonna kind of take it easy and do, ah, prom pless of animals. And it's so fun because animals could be drawn realistically o r cartoony, or any way you want to take the prompt. And so, if you are interested in starting a daily drying practice, which I have been drawing daily for over three years and it has improved my skills so much , and it's just so nice to, um let that creativity flow every day and get it out there on the paper. So if you are interested in certain daily drawing practice, come join us. Um, I'll do a daily video, uh, on the prompt, and you can follow along where you can do it your own way. And then once a week, we also are doing drawing skills. Ah, worksheets to kind of improve ourselves as we continue our practice. We also have a facebooker Ah, where we show off our drawings and, um encourage each other. It's called daily Drawing 2020. And I'm so glad you're here and you wanna draw daily with me. Can't wait to see you in class. 2. What You Need and Tips: Hey, so I just want to talk about, um, what we need for this class before we get started. Obviously, you can use any kind of drawing medium to do a day they drawing practice. But I'm gonna let you know what I'm using so that it's really easy to fall along. Um, I'm using an iPad and on my ipad I'm using the at AP appropriate. It is probably the best drawing painting app for the iPad. Um, it's just really intuitive. And many, many artists use it for digital work. Um, and then I'm also using the apple pencil again. Honestly, you can use a new tablet and stylus that works for you, but this is what I'm easy. And then I also have prepared worksheet sand, inspirational art pieces that are all in the resource is tab here on skill share. And I would love for you to dive into those the, uh, worksheets. We will use one each week, and they're there for you to either download street appropriate or Delon Justus the document and printed off. Whatever way, you're more comfortable using that. Go for it. Um, and the inspirational are is just like a quote to like, get you pumped and motivated and you can put it as a background on your phone or your iPad or hang it up on your wall so that you remember this is what you're doing your your starting this daily practice and then last, you just need determination. Like, seriously, you can just do this. You can. And I believe in you And together we'll make this daily practice happen so that you can improve. And, yeah, I'm really excited to see you in the group. I also have a few tips for you here from the first is to set a daily reminder. So whether that, uh, alarm on your phone or, um no to yourself a post it stuck up where you see it every day but yourself a daily reminder to draw and try to make it a consistent time to draw every day. Because if you're drawing at that same time, your brain is insulin. Gonna start picking up on that pattern and you're gonna want to draw that time you're gonna be thinking about drawing about at that time all day. I draw at night after between my kids bedtime in my bed time, and sometimes it doesn't leave a lot of time. But all day long, I'm thinking about what Indra and it gets me really pumped for that moment where I get myself to be creative and to really get into it. So I just encourage you really find that specific time and stick to it so that you can get in the rhythm of it. And then my second tip is to check off your accomplishments because as you see those little check boxes fill up, man, you will just you're just getting more confidence in yourself and in your practice. Um, and I've included a checklist of all bombs here in the resource is so make sure you get that and whether you put it in your procreate or you print it off so you can check it off that you did that days drawing, I say go for it, and then let us. I want you to not worry about messing up and just start. I know those mental blocks that gets you in your life, but I'm not good enough, But I can't do this, huh? Yeah, you can. And again, I'm gonna say this probably millions of times, but we're not drawing masterpieces daily there. Just drawing daily. It could be a sketch. It could be a doodle. It could be something that you're really passionate about anyone to spend more time on. Like it could be anywhere in between that you were just getting yourself in the habit of drying. Really? Because you want to see yourself probe and I unless you go to. So I'm really excited. Those are my tips. And I can't wait to see you in this class. Thanks. 3. March 1 Gesture Drawing Worksheet: Hello. Welcome to the first day of March. We're gonna be drawing animals this month. And so this is the first work. She would do a work sheet once a week and confined them in. The resource is tagged. You can download them and put them in appropriate. Or if you want a paper worksheet to work on freedom off. However you want to do that, how it works for you do it today we're gonna talk about gesture, drawing, just drawing things. Basically, where you loosely sketch the object are the subject of your drawing. Um, so you want to remember all these else? Draw loosely, lightly large, long and life. Um and what just her drawing does is it gives you that movement in that low of the line, and from there you can build a really great sketch on top of it. So we're going to start over top of this cheetahs that I've kind of faded out, and then we're gonna go from there and practice other ones. So let's get started here. We'll get a new layer, and what you want to do is draw the lines of action and rhythm so you can even practice before you put your pen down and I just have the six b pencil. Any kind pencil sketching will probably work really well for the flow of this. And what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna grab that and low of this cheetah. It's a really good one because it's got a lot of movement. That's why I want to start with this one and you get the movement of his legs movement. You start to see how he's going. And so if I take that one off, you can see how you got a basic shape. And then from there you would be able to, uh, sketch your head shape and your body shape you like shapes, and you would be able to capture that movement and keep that flow going in your finalized sketch. So then, um, your cheetah wouldn't be stagnant, which she has rarely are. So it works really well for drawing animals that have movement. Um, let me have another than your here, and it does work for, like, just if you want to show the length and everything. So this cat, I would got this tale and get that spine in the movement stretch there and then what you eventually want to be? Well, Deuce did not do it on the actual image. And just to grab those images and be able to sketch without and just looking at the reference. And so see, I have a very basic cat there. And then if I sketched out the rest of it, I would have the movement of Hiss stretch along with my basic sketch. So just a dry as a great practice to just kind of get your hands loosened up and get those long lines going. So here we're gonna follow our Els and draw the lines of action rhythm for this burger and draw loosely. So let's draw the swing. Look, you knew later. Sorry. Hola. We draw the swings loosely and drop light, and we draw large lines. Long lines. There were large and long lines so that we could get that swoop and then we keep it lively . So we head tucked in touch this week. So and you see how that becomes a basic structure of a bird. And then from there you can do sketching structure. But you've got the rhythm of it now and so now it's not just like the shapes, but you've got the movement of the animal. So that's why I thought this was a great practice for before we jumped into animals. All right, let's do one more. Let's do that somewhere. I know and he is pre still, but he's still got. You can get that heaviness in your lines, draw them long because I'm drink short lines. I'm not getting that that solid dish of that leg or the movement of the wing. If I did short ones, you don't get the movement of that wing. I do the movement going, and that's just a dry some game. The solid nous of his legs and the Mori Practices memorial be able to complete one of these , and, um, the better your dry and sandals would be. It works great with human figures as well, especially if you're drawing action, just like with animals. All right, so practice that up and, um, practice any other animals or figures you want to dio Um, it's It's so fun and easy because you don't have to complete that. You can just keep it as a gesture that that that's still you're getting your arm in your hand in the rhythm of it. And I hope that helped. And I can't wait to see you tomorrow. Bye. 4. March 2 Fox: Hello. Welcome to day two. We are drawing a box now. With these animals you condone. Draw them in your style. Draw them realistic. Draw them cartooning. Draw them illustrative. Draw them with a paint painterly look. Sketch them out. However you want to do it. Take that prompt and run with it. I want this month to be really easy and loose. And you kind of take what you learned about your style last month and just drop. Really? Also, animals are really fun to draw. I've always enjoyed drying animals. Um, so I'm gonna sketch out my fox here and go from this. - I found this really adorable picture on unspool ash dot com has loads of beautiful pre images that are just super fun to, uh, used as references, I would say with animals 100%. You want to use a reference? Um, because right now there's not much keeping this box from looking like a dog. If it's by using the reference, I could get the covering in the spots. Right. Um, he doesn't have a tail in the picture, but I'm absolutely gonna add one so that you can just really tell that this is a fox. Okay, so there's my sketch layer. I'm going, Teoh. I drew it on my reference. Lee, if you ever do that, don't worry about it. Just grab other lanes and three fingers down cutting pace. And now my reference designs on their All right, So I'm gonna lower that opacity. And I'm gonna start my sketch here in my style, allies to use reference photos to grab colors as well. Um, because although you can usually find what you want on the color wheel, some things you can't and sometimes you just justice. Grab that color. Also, it took me a minute there to find, um, great brush. I was trying to find a certain style, and it just was cooperating with me. So always be on lookout for that new little bit. Seconds help make these your style and makes them your If you're drawn with leave for any bit of time Here. You know that I go for more illustrative style, but if that's not you, don't worry about it. You do. You use your style. - All right, Just give us a quick clean up around the edges here. - Just give him a lovely little green background. Just complete him. - All right there. Little box for saving animals. I would love to see what you create. 5. March 3 Sheep: Hi there. Welcome to the third day. We are drying a sheet today and I've got this wonderful, fluffy little guy here and I'm gonna jump right in that sketch it. Now remember, you can make this realistic. You could make it. QWERTY could get a sketch. She could make it a painting. Whatever gets you to draw daily, Annie makes you happy. Makes you smile. I am a huge fan of Children's books, and so I tend to draw in that style because that's something I want to do. Get more ideas better I'll get at it. And it's definitely proven true. - All right, I've got my scheduling here and let's create a really clumpy she You can really use texture to emphasize, um, different things like here. I'm really emphasizing the fluff Penis are sheet with Oh, my swirlies. I think I'll give this bill should be here of the grass. Stand in rent . There's a fun little sheep for you on. I hope you had fun drawing that today 6. March 4 Cat: Hello. Welcome to day four and we are drawing the cat today. You can take this prompt any which way you want. You can draw a cat anyway, if you only have a minute to do a sketch, Good for you. You're getting your daily drawing in. Even if it's just a minute, it still counts. Um, Or if you want to go for an elaborate cats, do it. Um, there's really no wrong way to do it. I'm just gonna start here, and our men do sketch this grumpy cat I found. It's just so perfect. Um, who doesn't love to draw? Good, grumpy cat. - But I just want to check in and see how your daily drawing practice going. Um, are you able to get a drawing in every day? I just want to remind you that we are, you know, we're drink daily drawing practice, but it's not a masterpiece. Every day. It's not perfection. Every day just get yourself going drawing so that you can get back feet. You go and get that want in that drive to draw each day, um, kicking in and then it won't be something that you forget. It won't be something that you struggled to remember to dio it would be like you be. It'll be like your daily cup of coffee. Like I can't live without drawing a little bit. So, yeah, I would just encourage you to set alarms for yourself and to, um, set reminders O r. And tried to practice the same time every day so that you can draw every day and make it part of your life. Um, sorry. This cat is just cracking me up, but, uh, yeah, um, because I want to see you succeed with this daily drawing. I I know how amazing it can be for your life. And I know how good it feels when you do a whole months for the drawings and you drew every day and you see how far you've come. So, yeah, I just encourage you to do that and to share with us on the facebook page, your drawings so you can get encouragement and and all that. So, with coloring, the best thing you can do before you, um so any further crazy is to block out your basic shapes so you can see here and blocking out my colors before I add any texture, anything like that. Um and this will just give me the general sense of where things are. And then I can add texture and, um, other things on top of that, but you can see how making my basic shapes it looks like a cat. It looks like a simplified version of a cat. And so that's what you want to see him, Really, you can boil anything down to basic shapes, and that's why we practice all the basic shapes in our work cheeks. - And then I can add a new layer on Dad, my textures on top. And again, this is a very illustrative style. This is my style. Um, So if this is not how you draw cat, don't worry. Draw your cat How you want Dry cat? Um, I just want to show you how I would take the prompt and kind of just give you a little motivation to get drawing today with my drawing of a cat. But you absolutely do it your way. And you do you and express yourself through your art. This cat is crafty me up. I am having a bit of a hard times that it doesn't look very good, dog, because it's got that hug knows. But I still love it. Even though it kind of looks like a dog. Some whiskers will probably help. Here we go. Bit more cat attributes that stippling something as you're drawing animals is to think. Okay, what makes us a cat? Well, 0.8 years. Make it a cat, and whiskers make it a cat. And the cat tale makes cat. And so if you include a lot of those elements, then you will have a drawing that looks like a cat. Um, and I could go with any of the animals, so it's just something to think about as you're drawing. Okay, My including all the elements that would instantly make this look like a cat. And then you can go a stylized as you want, because you've included all the bits that make it recognizable. So there we go. Is my cat there? Probably give him some kind of background here. And I hope you had fun with that one. And I can't wait to see your cat. See you drew 7. March 5 Dog: Hi there. Welcome back Today's fifth day and today we're drawing a dog eso instead of references. Today I am going to show you a fun little exercise that will kind of loosen you up. So maybe you're getting stuck. Maybe drawing every day is like draining or it's hard and you just don't be like drawing. And this is just a fun exercise to kind of loosen you up, and it's quick and easy and just kind of lets you really some creativity. So whether you do it today on dogs or if you do it on another day when you're just not feeling it, um, I just want to give you this final exercise, uh, to, uh, lifts new up and keep you dry and daily because the last thing we want when we are drawing daily is to be uninspired and feel uncreative. So, yeah, this is just a fun, little creative exercise. So I'm gonna go toe artistic and grab the cool brush. But really congrats. Any fun brush that you want to play around with, and I'm just gonna grab some fun colors and make some big old blobs here on my, um on my layer here. They could be just about any shape you want. Make it fun, make it different. And then I'm gonna get black. And I'm going to go here to the, um thank you. Anger in thinking, brushy want and a new layer. I'm just gonna turn these into dogs and the funding ISS. You don't have to, um, do anything special or, you know, make them perfect or anything like that. Just have to make sure that they have a nose that kind of looks like a dogs and some dog type years. And then before you know, you have a whole page of fun, colorful illustrations, - there's no wrong way to do this. And that's what's fun about it. And that's what's freeing about it, that you can just make your dogs however you see fit. So maybe when a big, fluffy dog and drop big, fluffy dog sometimes in life, you just need something relaxing. And when drawing starts to feel like work and effort, you're not gonna wanna draw daily anymore. So, um, sometimes you just gotta step back and let it be fun again. So, yeah, sometimes that means making not perfect drawings, making mistakes letting yourself up with freedom. Just play around. And sometimes when you do an exercise like this, it leads you to bigger inspiration. Or sometimes you just let you let it go. I hope that was fun for you. And if you want, draw your dogs with this exercise. Do it. If you want to draw a dog another way, do it, um, And save this for another day when you're feeling, uh, you know, like, just not creative Do have fun, exercise like this, Make your daily drawing fun, and then you'll want to do it every day. All right? I'm so glad you're here today, and I can't wait to see you back toe. 8. March 6 Bear: Hi there. Today is day six and we are doing a bear today. I thought I'd switch it up. Um and I would do, uh, just some line drawings, Um, and just keep it really clean with clean lines. So, um, I've got mine images of fares here. All right, So I lowered Theo Tessie on my beer here and on a new layer. I'm just gonna give a quick Treece over top of them just to get his basic shapes. There is nothing wrong with tracing over an image. You that little extra help? Um, obviously, if you're drawing bears every day, you're gonna get all the shapes right, and, you know, having issues. But sometimes we're drawing things were not familiar with. And you were not familiar with those shapes in there, Their proportions. And for that, it's okay to get a little extra help. And so there is nothing wrong with game. The shape here, there, our band. All right, I'll move this over. Can't lower the paseo. My I will sketch there, Add another layer here, and I'm gonna take brush. Monoline appear in calligraphy and I'm just and much of liner. The point is to have really clean, sharp lines. - All right, let's deal with another here, - Rick , move a reference the other way. I will do some liner overtop. - Let's do one more prince. - All right, do one more outline here. No, I take my fingers and then I can add one more layer here. Here we go. I've got some cool, bare outlines and that leads. Yeah, that's just a fun way to do Leinart for your daily drawing. I hope you enjoyed that. 9. March 7 Mouse: Hello. Welcome back. Here we are a week in the march and we're gonna draw mouse. So I'm gonna start with a sketch Mice, something years and pointy noses. You probably start with all those things again. You can absolutely start with a reference. I was just gonna have a little fun. So I wasn't too que no having that, be it a completely realistic All right, place my sketch. And so maybe I'll play around with the watercolor brush today in those last few videos have been really just playing around with colors and shapes and textures. And it's just keep you're watercolor or you're definitely drawing practice Interesting. And the more interested you are, more likely you are to keep go. So it's great to try new things and to break out of your comfort zone and push yourself because all of those things are going to keep you drawing every day because you'll come back and you'll be like, OK, I tried this. Now I want to try this. - So what I've done with the water from the brush is that I just took the normal watercolor brush, and then when I went to the eraser, I went down to artistic, and I just grabbed one of those brushes. And what you want to do is you want to take away from yours? Um, water collections. What watercolor does is it? It doesn't dry evenly unless you're trying really hard to make it dry evenly. And so to give it that more authentic looks when a lightly erase bits of your watercolor. And then, um, I'm going along and getting my straight bit and making the rest of my mouse here not great at making clean edges except for a racing. Um, I'm just kind of a messy painter is all. But some people are really great at making really clean lines power to them. So men do the same thing with years and legs and a tail that I just did the body since you're playing regular old appropriate water bread, watercolor brush, which I admit is not the best water cola brush I have. Um but I just want to use brushes that everybody has. And then all those racer and today artistic. And this old beach brush was pretty fun. I have it about half a pass ity. I'm just coming pushing my color around, okay? Seen at my edges. And this is just the way I do it This So I found that I enjoy doing it best. But like I said before you do, it works for you. Um, a lot of the times I'll watch a tutorial video and I'll be like, Okay, and I'll do that with the first time and then I'll find a way that works even better for me . And so then all incorporate some of their things into my things, and that's the best way to do it is just connect, see how people do and then adapted to what works best for you. - I want my schedule. Would you got here doing that this week Kind of gives it a little bit of an Eric Carle look , just because you're almost kind of cutting out your shapes and like I said, that works best for me because I'm not great with clean lines. Also, it's a really fun look and then take some. I think we're top of this and there we go. There's my cute little mouse. That's how I would do it with some watercolor brushes. And I hope you had fun during this today, too, and I can't wait to see you back tomorrow by 10. March 8 Contour Lines Worksheet: Hello. Today we're doing a worksheet on Contour Lines now in In drawing their three important things, they're shaped line and color. And last week we talked about gesture lines in how you go with the flow of in the movement of the subject and today's contour lines and contour lines There basically the outline of a subject. And so, um, you can look at the subject you can think. Okay, how is this outlined? And and get the general shape of it by doing a contour line, and so that gives you those 1st 2 elements of drawing. So if you're looking at this apple, you might Originally I want to start with something like this because that's how we know Annapolis drawn. But if you look at it, deal to the back of the apple is actually back here. And so, uh, if you're actually drawing the outline of the apple by watching this, you see that it's more that shape and then it has the line there, and then this becomes Here's like that. And so that's a contra line of black, an apple. And then you couldn't even take it a step further. If you draw the outline of your apple at the terrible outline about and you draw your center line. And then, as you draw a curved lines to throat, show how it's a three D apple, you get the full picture, and then that will eventually help you a shading, which is a whole another lesson because you would follow the lines of the cross contours. So, yeah, that's basically contour lines. So what you're doing is you're kind of making it in simples form, um, as you find the outline lines. So let's take this to can. For instance, um, if we're looking at the outlines, I'm just gonna look at it and go in General, we're going to follow the out like this is kind of weird gesture drawing It's in. I think I didn't like myself enough for very speak. All right, No way. Just follow those out lines, and then you could even outlined where the color change goes. And so this is just basically another type of drawing to give you practice for learning shape and line of different objects. Because, like I've talked about before, the more you draw on objects, the better you learn in shape the better you've learned its lines, and that's why dry and every day could be such a great thing. Because you're getting those practical things. You're giving that muscle memory to your hand as you draw the things. So, yeah, it doesn't have to be this perfect drawing or anything. What you're doing is you're just kind of gathering the information that you see as the outline, and from there you can make a pretty decent sketch. Alright, let's try a crab crap is a little more complicated cause he's got a lot of angles and lines . So if we start with our middle go, give him a line for his things, saying that two triangles and see also was. You do this, you start to gather information of what shapes make up. This subject is here are two ovals for some circles, and as you learn what shapes make up your drawing, you'll be able to, um, stylized it because now I know that my crab has a over body and over eyes. Well, I could take that and make it a stylized, cartoony type crab because as long as you would make it recognizable ovals in the right spot, It would still look like a crab. Even, you know, stylized. Yeah, This is just basically a training exercise for your brain in your hand to get that connection. And the more you exercise those things better and better you get any canto. I'm not even perfect. I haven't drawn a ton of crab. So no, my crab legs or not be perfection. But that doesn't matter like this. Just practice. This is learning. This is gaining new skills. Okay, so that's the basic outline of a crab. And you could even, um, give it even more flow and make it more simple. Like with these fish here, if I just want to give full on Hey, sick outline way go like it doesn't even have to be this'll intricate thing. But you still get the emphasis of the fish anyway, So that is basic contour line drawing. Of course, we'll for you, toe look it up. And there's loads of tutorials online about contour lines and all that. So, um, there's so many more. Resource is if you want to learn more, but I love just sharing any basic knowledge that I have about drawings that you can start your own process of learning it. All right. I hope you guys have a great day and I can't wait to see you tomorrow by 11. March 9 Frog: Hello. Welcome back. We are drawing a frog. All right, so let's start right in with a sketch. Um, I have a reference here, but I'm not gonna stick to this reference. I think I'm gonna make a really style iceberg. And so I just have it so that I can get the general features freight. So let's dive into my sketch. I want him to have an Opel body, but an oval this way. Head frogs have those classic sticky outie eyes. - All right, there's my basic sketch. So now let's start with the outline of my frog and I'm gonna get a good color from the sky . I'm on your layer. I just think it basic outline of where Want my frog? - All right, picture There's no little spots. Couple along the edges. Okay, then we're gonna pull that behind our sketch so we can see you. What? What layer we want next. Okay, I'm gonna give him a chance. Belly here and then a layer on top of that and maybe even slightly darker head just stands out. And then I'm gonna give him another layer his eyes and make the eyes master and duplicate it and dragged it over here. I think it makes about one layer. All right, so that's pretty boring. So what you want to do to add fun and texture to it? His first we'll start with the bottom layer will add a layer and make it a clipping mask. Which means whatever we draw on there will only stay on that layer. And I'm going go Day, um, I'm going to go here and grab the guest stinky from artistic, make it really big, but make it really faint and grab some dark green. And I'm just give dark picture on this back leg, - okay ? And then I'm gonna do the same things for the other layers. Just adding texture on top of each of them with very shades of the colors. But already there over here and me pass spray paint section of these so I can give them that picture. And it's on maybe a little bit on his cheeks here. Maybe a little bit. He looks holy unimpressed. I think that's a great frog for a frog day. I hope you had fun today and I can't wait to see your Bronx. Thanks. Bye. 12. March 10 Raccoon: hello again today we're drawing a raccoon. I am so glad you're back. I hope your daily drawing practice is going really well. Um, yeah. It's so good to be able to draw with you guys to get the feedback from you guys. Um and I hope you're enjoying this as much as I am. So let's dive right in. I thought it might be fun to do a really simplified version a raccoon today. So we're just can't take the very basic element of our low guy here. So basically, he's got an old wolf, a ball shaped head here. I just use a really textured brush because I thought would be fun. But you use whatever you want. Anything enough to draw. You reckon this way you could just draw a raccoon your way. Well, I dropped my raccoon my way, and we could just be drawing buddies just so that you continue your daily dry in practice. I always find it is easier to stay accountable for things. You've got a buddy doing it with you. And so that's what I kind of want to make. This class is just like a friend who is doing daily drawing practice with you and keeping you accountable and encouraging you. So please play. What I'm doing here is I'm just finding the basic elements and making them into broad shakes here. So you see the white eyebrows, the white nose. So why the long years? But I reckon it's very iconic in its little bandit face. And so if you get those elements correct, people say, Oh, you know what that is? And John right away, which is what you want, lion drying. You want people recognize it, right? So as you draw more and recognize the shapes and colors and lines that you find in subjects , the more you will be able to, um, have recognisable drawings were we were like, I know where that IHS thanks yourself. Happy little raccoon waving Hello and that's all of this. I hope you have fun driving record, and that was fun and quicken And your daily drawing practice can just be that just something fun, light and easy. Um, and then you can save up your creative energy for the big projects you want to take on on days where you have more time or energy or creativity. But if you keep drawing daily, you'll gain those skills where big projects won't seem so Don t either. So that's what I want to see you growing as growing together and I'm glad you could come draw with me today. 13. March 11 Duck: Hello. Welcome back. Today we're drawing ducks, So I have this beautiful voter of a duck here. And I thought today I would do more realistic duck, since a lot of my, um, most recent ones have been very stylized in Illustrator. So Yeah, I'm Mr Sketch. Um, for the sake of time, I am Tracy, my duck. Full disclosure. Honestly, I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I think everyone's while we need to trace so that we don't have to worry about proportions . And we can just chill and do the best part, which is the actual painting or drawing. But different people have different school of thoughts, and I think that's cheating. Um, yeah, you do. What works for you? I'd say Hydra Juckes every day. I wouldn't have distress about my scene. Sure, I got all the proportions, but I don't drive realistic ducks every day. And so I am a little worried about being a crypt on making. I am just getting the general outline of a little body and it's still a feather. And then Okay, move my friends up here, down here and there. I'm just gonna get my wash brush here. in paint. It gives a nice texture. It's really fun to use. And I'm just gonna make a base here. I mean it. What's really fun about drawing digitally is that, um you can do things the very traditional route where you you paint your base and then you paint your colors on top of that. Or you can do things completely backwards and draw the top layer first, and then the layers underneath that and both will give you different effects. But, um, yeah, it's kind of fun that you if you stick to the rules, you'll get a very traditional containing. But if you don't six of the rules that gives you have the option switching it up. So I like all the freedom that drawing digitally allows. I also have three small Children, and so that makes come, drawing daily that much more difficult. Like I don't have time to get out all my paints and all my pens and everything every day to draw like that. And so, um, it's really nice that I have a digital drawing in dead, - but if you're doing your daily drawing practice with, um, pen and paper paint on canvas, That's awesome. I'm glad you're able to do that. Um, just for practicality reasons I'm just not able Teoh. And so I'm super grateful to be able to draw digitally, - and you can see here. I'm just layering every color on top. Um, this is just kind of how I would do a more traditional duck, but everybody has their own. What you doing? I do really like how this brush lends with It's so so I'm enjoying that bit of it, and I always bring my sketch on top, and I'm just gonna clean up my Angela's here. There you go. That's how I would do a realistic looking duck. I hope you enjoy us, and I can't wait to see your ducks have a great thing. 14. March 12 Sloth: Hello. Welcome back Today we're gonna draw a slough. I love slots. I don't know anybody who does not love loss loss are awesome. So I'm just gonna start with a quick sketch here. I like this reference because this guy's like, chillin hanging out, and so your sketch can often start with just basic shape. So here's my rectangle for a are and my circle for head My whole body here and he's got another rectangle leg. It's kind of bending up there. Another like a day rectangle arm over here, you'll Macon see high. So you see how I built that out of simple shapes. And what's neat about sketch layers is you literally can have as many sketch layers as you need and just keep building on top of them until you get an image that you're happy with and then go from there. And sometimes I forget that I think, Oh man, and I make my sketch too hard to follow and make it hurt the point of learning all these friends tricks and ways of trying to make it easier for herself. So okay, I quite like that extended simple shapes that might even make this hand a little smaller. Okay, so let's car on. What? I'm gonna Teoh here. Do see opacity on. Find a fun around here, - Okay ? I made these back legs. The darker side gets in shadows going on here, and then I'm gonna go on my new layer and give myself give my sloth here a little face. Q t One Nice thing about in texture, especially when using prefer for animals, which I assume you're doing it a lot right now is that it could give your animal that movement and can kind of show the directionality like it makes this leg go push. If I kept going this direction on this legs like it would, it would make the legs seem less like a like, But you kind of get the direction of the leg, and then it it gives you the movement of their limbs and stuff and kind of separates him out. So, um, isn't textures for for and stuff for animals, uh, can give you a lot of definitions for your animal. So it's one thing to keep in mind. Is your doing just like waving? Uh And then let's give him his branch Real quick, - then because I feel like it's missing something and ran his hand on top of this branch hair because it looks like he's not holding on. Okay, that's my salon. It's kind of fun. Cat simple. I used, like, four colors, so that's one fun ways to do your daily drawings, and I can't wait to see your butt. 15. March 13 Cow: Hi. Welcome back. I'm glad you're here to draw again today. Um, today we're gonna dry cow. How fun, right? Um, yeah, I wouldn't make a white cow, so I'm going Give myself a green background because otherwise is very hard to Ciara white cow. And then one mil trick you may not know is if you double tap it goes to the automatic pierce white, which is really nice to know when you need a pure white because sometimes you get it just off and it's just enough to make you crazy. All right, let's go to the drawing. Here, grab this Blackburn brush. That's kind of fun and scratchy Indra. Big old fat cow here. Something about drawing animals is I think I've said it before, but if you just draw off the basic shapes of them a rectangle with four legged rectangles I mean, people are like, OK, that's a cow like and they know, and I think that could be the beauty in drawing in animals. Right now, it kind of looks a little bit like a sheep, but France station. But as I draw this Boston, you'll be like up. Yeah, that's okay. So one fun way to make your daily drawings more interesting is to play with textures. And so what you can dio is you can take her little selection tool If you goto automatic, you can click on like your black spots here, and we're going Teoh copy and paste ups that you have a new layer with those and the rooming could could be mask on top so you can see what, Just what your spots will look like. In that way, if you don't like it, you can take it off. But if we go to some gray here and we go to a fund texture like these fun polka dots, um, you can give your cow something interesting or we could go Teoh. See, just find some scratchy scratchy, make it a little stripey, or choose an outlandish color like a hot pink and give her a cow little color. But because I've made that a whole new layer like I just turned off, I don't have to worry about it. But it's also fun, something fun to play with. So you could go Teoh here on You're a cow, A little bit of a proper feel. Let's see if we can. That knows that look cool that way too. Yeah. Here we go. Now your cow is style. Anyway, that's just a fun way to play around with different textures and things keep your are interesting And, um yeah, I hope you enjoyed that. And I'd love to see what kind of cows you make by 16. March 14 Rabbit: Hello? Today we're drawing a rabbit. Um, so let's start off with Skitch Is my rabbit years. You have a face? Yeah, everybody. So I knew going into this that I wanted it to be very unstructured. And so that's why I created it like this. Um, So I'm gonna do something a little different. I'm gonna track my sketch here, and I'm going to create a new layer. And I'm just gonna have some fun with a really fun texture. And so first, I'm gonna choose what? My rabbits What color? My rev It should be. So let's make it this great and maybe a little darker for a little more texture on top, That's a flat. And then amend that under my sketch. Inter my sketch back on. Now I'm going to stay on the gray layer, but I'm going to take my selector tool, and I'm going to trace my rabbit body. Okay, So, like, everybody trace three fingers down, copy and paste. And if you turn off this layer and that layer there for his little body, um and I still need to find where his arms and stuff are, but we're gonna basically, like, cut out. Shaped like we were cutting out paper to make a little collage bunny here. Okay, so let's turn on that grey again in my sketch, and I'm gonna make that great just a little Dr. So just go into the brightness and turned down, because now I'm gonna do my back leg and my back arm actually might do both legs and arms. You can see them really well, let's trace them all. And we can always delete it. If you don't like, let's give him a little arm here and a little arm here. If you just press the add button again, you can add another leg and one more time. Get the other leg kick and then 33 fingers down. Copy and paste. All right. Oh, I was on the run layer. So go back you got. Makes you click on that grey layer. And now copy and paste. All right, so now I have the duck, gray arms and legs. So let's turn off, my grace. You can see it and sketch. Okay. It's kind of hard to see, so I might have to distinguish it a little better. Maybe we'll light enough. The other one. And this is just the kind of thing that you just play with. Um, like, if you're not, like, shape or, uh, anything like that, You know, that's what you need to play with to create your, um, your clash. So I'm just gonna keep doing that with all the other pieces, and then we'll put together. - Okay , So I got my main body put together here, and I think I'm under a different texture for the years and stuff like that. So I'm gonna grab, grab me some fun pink here and then grab a different texture that Okay, So you can see my bunny forming itself here, little cutting paste. And then let's do really fun tail here with some polka dots. So be really fun to just live it up your game to play with textures and a new way of creating an image. So I thought this would just be a fun, little thing to try. I'm gonna change. That tail is designed with the rest. Um, there you go. All right. And the left. I'm a bunny, and I could easily see that being on the like a happy Easter card. So there you go in time for Easter here in a few weeks. Um, there's a nice little spring bunny for you. I hope you had fun doing that. And I can't wait to see you tomorrow. Bye. 17. March 15 Cross Contour Lines Worksheet: Hello Today we're talking about cross contour lines. Last time we talked about Contra lines and now we're talking about cross contour lines. You confined this worksheet in the resource is town, and you can either put it downloaded into your procreate. Or you can print it off in Dubai hand whatever makes you happy. Um, so last time we talked about Contour lines, which air basically an outline of a knob Jek too, and gives you the general shape of it. Now, with cross going to contour lines, they give you the form, so it turns it from a flat shape to a three D object. Let me show you what I mean. So if we take this apple and we get its contour lines around it, then if we do the cross contour lines, it gives us that three D form and makes it a three d after rest. So if I take that over here now, you could see how the three d object of the apple and then you can even take it a step further and get lines all the way across. And there you go. You essentially have the wire frame of an object So if you're having trouble rendering something three D and keeps looking flat, you might want to take your object and practice doing this. Also, this helps with shading. So if I was to take this, um, and, um, could see, I'll bring it over here and take down the capacity. Then I can follow these lines and create my ship means for my three objects. So next time, we're gonna be talking about hygiene and cross hatching, and so we're gonna be using that exact methods. Um, now it looks like a grid. But what you want to be careful of is you don't want have a flat grid over top of it because this does nothing for your form. Right. So what you wanna have is more of ah, wire grid around it as you want. Teoh, decrease, um, or sorry. As you want to increase the distance from you, you want Teoh, decrease the lines. So these lines are really close together back here, which shows that they are further away. And these lines up here are really far apart, showing that this is really close to you, and the same would be with the cross contour you get some closer lines And then as you moved to this bigger part now I paid your I see the shape in the form of the pair by having these big, great points here in the small ones in the back and for the cylinders. I was just giving you these for practice because again was shaving if you were doing hatching. You don't want to Teoh this that you want to follow the form so you would pretend you have those cross clot contour lines and you would follow the form clean a much better hatching shade line because you see instantly how it makes this cylinder a three d cylinder as opposed to a todo I got my life. Six. Um, so you can see what a difference that makes from that. So that's why I crossed contours important. It helps you with making objects three d and did you form for them? And it shows you where that shady in is going to go and what direction is going to take because this is not going to give you a three d cylinder straight across the curve. Is so yes, um, practice with some different forms uh, fruit is great for practicing anything. Spiric als. Really? And, um I hope you have a great day and I can't wait to see you tomorrow. Bye. 18. March 16 Ostrich: hi there today, we're gonna drawn ostrich. Um, I just found some general pictures. I've got this one of their general body shape and then I thought I'd have it training tend towards me. So I had a head turned picture, and it's always good idea. Toe gather many Resource is what you need because one picture may not give you all the angles and stuff that you need so always good to have more than what you need than not enough. All right, so let's draw out our sketch of our ostrich again. If I just stick to the contours and the basic shaves I've got like this spread the re rectangle body long, and then I was been turned the head toward me. So it's got this weird, like almost a Pentagon, he head big old eyes. You know what? That neck is not long enough, and that isn't anything. I'm really trying usually, and I said before, but that you can just pick up your sketch and move it so nice. It was the best part of sketches sketching. You could figure out what your proportions are, what's working, what's not working, Then you don't have to worry about all that. When you're trying to cover it, Let's give it some bowtie longneck. Oh, yes, that suits him. Yes, is much too good for us. All right, Great. Since he's fun, we're making fun colors and you'll notice you're making each body parts separate on separate layers. And that'll be easier for shading here and texturizing in the long run. - So there we go, better basic shapes for body and everything. And so let's on some texture. So I am just swiping left with two earth, right? With two fingers. Um, and that's just see out full lock on. And that means whatever I color on that layer will only stay on that layer. And then I grabbed myself a big old brush and a variant either lighter or darker of the color that I have. And then and then I just add myself some texture. And this is kind of funny. Just kind of play around with what you find looks best and suits the character you've created. All right? Oh, I think I am just good to call that done. This is my happy little ostrich I have. That was fun for you. And I can't read to you next time 19. March 17 Lizard: Hi there. Welcome back Today. We're gonna draw 1,000,000. Um, actually, it's lizard. So you really can draw just about any lizard. I just think chameleons are so cool that I had to draw one. Um, but feel free. Draw any type of lizard. There are so many coolest looking lizards. That's half the fun of doing these promises. Looking up all the different cool animals out there to draw. Um, if you drawn with me for any bit of time, you know, I'm gonna do things pretty stylized. So I think I'm gonna draw pretty cartoony chameleon here. He's gonna be have a sketch first. I He's going to just be kind of a half circle here with a curly dale. And I give him It's cool legs. Give him another. Probably just an oversized I speaks. Makes him look like a dinosaur in who loves it. - Okay , so there's my basic communion sketch, and now let's cover him up. - Okay , so I was thinking with this guy that I can't just do a plain old green body because obviously he's a really Super bowl Camilion. So I'm going to give him a real body, and so what? I do is I take that green body layer and I've been clipping mask on it and I'm gonna find me some cool rainbow breaks. Colors on. Go to the paint. Let's grab a sunburst. Yeah, Give it a break, Lindholm. There we go. You'll notice with my coloring here. Even though I'm choosing wild and creative tellers, I'm actually going back to some of the same colors I use so that I can keep sort of a consistency, Um, and making a little coordinated. Otherwise, you just look a little out there. But if I keep it coordinated and use the same six or so colors, then we will have a better looking over all chameleon because the colors kind of go together because you've seen that purple in that spot, you know, - just a bit of texture to the other parks. - There we go. There's a nice, bright, colorful chameleon. Um, that was super fun. Todo to enjoy dry in a community. And I can't wait to see you back My room. Hi, 20. March 18 Horse: Hello. Welcome to day 18 and we're drawing a horse. I found this nice picture of a horse with lots of movement, so I thought less trisomy gesture drying. So basically, I'm just gonna go in there and really capture those moves. At this point, it's not about you gain the perfect outline. It's about being that movement that you see in front of you. - You can see how my I'm doing loose and fast movements for this sketch. And then after it's done, I could go back in to find those blinds. Even better, he running myself out of room. All right, so yeah, see, there's my gesture that the movement of the force in its legs, its tail and then I can lower the opacity on that and dio better sketch on top their God sketch and I think go from there. - All right. After you got your solid shape, they're trying to add texture. Today I'm used that the soft airbrush shares basically just go through and make sure I get hit all my highlights and shadows with my textures here. And if you're wondering why I'm doing this highly realistic looking horse and pinks and blues it's just because they are in blues and purples. It's just because I feel like it, like there's no other reason. I just didn't feel like choosing normal Harsco. And I think that little bit of this is what I feel like doing today can really improve our daily drawing because it gives us that little moment of Thistle is what I'm going to do today, and it's gonna brighten my day, even if it's just a little fun thing. And we could all use those little joyful moments in our day, and I think that's a lot of what are is about. And there's my fun, almost realistic horse. I hope that was fun, and I can't wait to see you back to our by. 21. March 19 Turkey: Hello, everyone. I'm glad you're here today. Um, I'm so glad to get this chance to draw daily. And I hope you're finding some peace and some comfort in drawing daily during this very anxious time. Um, I would say keep up with your daily drawing practice. I know I've talked to a lot of creative people and just keeping up with their creativity and focusing on, um, you know, art and being creative has helped relax their mind, and he's their anxiety. And so, yeah, I would say, Just keep it up s so that you can continue to have peace, And in this time anyway, So they were dried in turkey and turkey's air hilarious looking animals. So I'm just gonna sketch over top of this guy, and then we'll go from there. - All right, So you see, I just had a very loose sketch of my little turkey guy here, and I thought I might do a little graph or block print. Um, back back in the day, they used to carve out of wood prints, and that's how they would print images and stuff on the fabric and cars and stuff. And so you can kind of make that effect I here in appropriate, which is pretty cool. So what I've done here is under my turkey layer. I've dropped a color and, um, that I'm lowering the opacity on my sketch layer and then I'm gonna go back to that color layer, and I'm gonna use the eraser. I'm using the technical pen in, In Came and I am just gonna trace this guy with the eraser and basically, like, cut away. Now, I don't want to trace perfect lines because if you look to the wood block, they have to carve it. So what you would do is you want to kind of carve it out so it gives it that look and feel of the scratch marks. And so here, if I take this off, you can see we're getting those scratch marks here. So I'm just going to do that for a little bit, and then we'll go from there. The fun part of block praying is it doesn't have to be perfect and that m it kind of gives it its own style. And also, you can use the strokes to give your image, texture and, um, bits of interest list color. Brown actually has amazing block printing class here on still share. And so this is something that's fun for you. Definitely check it out. Ah, lot of these techniques I've learned from different close is here on skill share. So, um, you know, if you see a technique that you're like, Oh, that's awesome. I would learn more about that. Look it up here on sculpture. There are so many great teachers that are way better it showing these techniques that I am - okay . And then I'm just gonna take my pencil layer and make a really big outline here, and I'll take my selection tool and automatic Grab all this, cut it out of there. And then from there, I'll just, uh, erase the whole outline and kind of just leave a little bit, but it gives it more of that, um block threat texture, like you're cutting away the wood. All right. And one last fun bit of texture is to take your recent brush and go to spray paint on and find the flicks fresh and just gonna Yes, small, uh, are large and just kind of lately race some of it and it gives it kind of that block printed picture here. And there you go. There's my block, print, turkey. Um, probably clean up a little bit more than that. But I just want to show you in general when this could look like and I can't wait to see how you interpreted a turkey, and I hope you have a great day. 22. March 20 Lion: Hi there. Welcome back Today we're gonna draw a lying And I thought it would just be a fun Kirch cartoony style lying here. So I'm just going to start with a basic sketch. Let me go my sketching brush. And so we just need a round circle for Lions Head and then I think I'll do It's a lion's manes around ish again. I just want to make very simplified version, and then they got the top. Are their nose all right? And that's all you really have to do to dio a supervised version. It's really like six shapes, two circles, 2/2 circles for years of trying for knows, rectangle, French up nose and then his smile. And sometimes if you just break them up and make him really simple for yourself, um, a sketch can be quite funds. So I'm gonna start with grabbing the wash brush. Um, it's just a really fun texture, and I've made some really like right pallets on. They used one of those because I figure if it's gonna be fun and simple, then we should use some great colors. So let's start out doing it later, Okay? Always double check that I'm constantly driving. Let's start by drawing his main here. Nice thing that the wash rushes it adds to itself, which is super fun. But you also have to be aware when you pick us and put down your brush. Clean up my main a little here with my every sir and what's nice? I don't know if you know this, but you can draw shapes with you re suppress, just like with your, um, your pencil. So if you take the race so you can draw a perfect circle. So if I want my line to be a perfect circle, did you have to make sure my racer cooperates with it? There you go. And then I could just erase outside that line, and I have a perfect circle client head. Let's circle for his face on the advice. Here's 10. What's sometimes a good idea is to add everything on separate layers because you can always combine the layers, but sometimes you don't want them. We combine it first if you have the room for. Actually, it's a month separate, and then, as you run a room for layers, pay on the size of your document. You can, uh, add them together to make less layers can also be a quite a fun challenge. Teoh, draw an animal in unusual colors. Um, gives you that extra bit of Oh, How would it look if this animal was wrong? Colors They're my friends is a lion. Super simple today, but super cute. All right. I can't wait to see you What your lions look like. I hope you have a great day by 23. March 21 Jellyfish: Hello. Welcome back. Um, we are drawing and jellyfish today. Here's my jellyfish image. Jellyfish are super cool. So let's start with this one with a background. Since I want to do something light, I'm gonna start with a doctor background. Grab a new play here. Here you go. And then just kind of sketch out my jellyfish is my color here and go from there. This brush is just the Soberon brush that's in the drawing section comes appropriate. And I'd like to just play around different brushes, especially when I'm doing daily drawing. Keep the interest seen, keeps you motivated to try new things. So I was definitely recommend playing with the ones that appropriate offers. And then if you just type in free rushes for appropriate, you can find a whole form appropriate and other websites that have amazing three brushes and here on skill, share these different classes to if you do appropriate classes that have free rushes. Since I'm not really doing tutorials, I was just doing a daily drawing. I don't really have a free brushes, but there are so many that Opperman those air always fun to try out with their techniques that they do in their classes. So I definitely heard you to look into those and see she's confined him in. Excites you. It makes you want to drive every day. That's what this is all about. That excitement and that joy that comes from drying each day. No way. Should probably put a little bit glow behind her jellyfish here, huh? So let's go behind her jelly fish, and we're gonna pick up in the lighting section. Find it, Lew minutes. There we go. Um, let's try that. Nebulous you with that. Looks like I'm a pick up orangey color and making maybe get brighter. Well, that's kind of fun. This and even bring down the opacity of it. Okay, I say we just do one last thing by adding those little luminant specks that are in the background of the picture. Yeah, if you look at this picture, you can see there's no inspection. Well, the luminant, it kind of adds to it. So we're just gonna do that real quick on top of our, um, background layer. We're gonna add another one and make it a clipping math, and we'll go back to the same luminess and grab some glimmer and something really light and then just adjust your size How you want to make it? I like that. You can even add a little, huh? Oceanie slightly go. All right. And he put it all together and you get a school Little floatie jellyfish in the ocean of those fun for you. Um, I hope you keep playing and creating, and I'll see you tomorrow. 24. March 22 Hatching and Cross Hatching Worksheet: Hi there. Welcome back. Today we're doing another worksheet you could find the worksheet in the resource is tab, and you can either download it, Teoh your I've head and put it into procreate. Or you can print it out and do it by hand. Um, obviously, I'm doing it. Digital's that Do it. However, um, we have been talking a lot about line. We were talking about contour lines, gesture lines. And now we're gonna talk about hatching and crosshatch genes, which is using line for shady. Um, so in this worksheet, I've got these boxes here, and what you're gonna do is you're going to start out half gene from lightest to darkest, and then you're gonna hatch each of the shapes, and then we're a crosshatch and blend. Just listen. So what you want to do is grab probably like a pencil. A brush here in the sketching. Um, that's probably gonna be the easiest to wear flip, but, uh, experiment. Try it out. You know, it could be done with a pen and ink type brush as well. Yeah, So let's start with hatching. So hatching is basically just straight lines. And so if you're hatching anyone your lightest. You're gonna make sure you're you are straight lines are far enough away from each other. And then as they get closer to each other, they're gonna get darker and darker. And I'm not pressing harder. I'm not making any change other than bringing my hatching lines closer and closer and your consistency of line is definitely going to add to your consistency of shaving. As you see, I am not very consistent. I'm not agree that straight lines. So this is definitely a good work for me as well as for you. Just to add that consistency, The more you do something, the better you get. It really is that simple? I'm not going to be an expert attaching because I don't do it all the time. I like to shade other ways, but some people are masters of cross hatching and stuff because they do it all the time. So when you are usually using this to shade an object want you first needed to decide is what is your light source. So we're gonna say our light source for all our objects is right over on this side and is pointing down at our objects. And so, um, once you decide that, then you can go from the darkest area. And what you want to do is you want follow the lines that are always already in the object so you can see in my area where I have more convinced lines it's darker. And where there's less condensed lines, it's lighter. And you see, when I go switch to this side, I didn't keep going my straight lines like that because that one convey my shape. If I continue the same angle of line, what I need to do is follow this angle of lying down here to convey the shape goes this way . Same with up here. And you follow the angle of lines, convey machine and give it form. Okay. All right. So now we'll do the same with the pyramids. And I switched to the side, so I followed that line down there. All right, so a circle is a little trickier because you're making into a sphere, remember? So you've got the that the circle going the other way in a circle, going this way inside there. And so what you want to do is you want to follow those lines and make the great spot right where that light's we're sitting and then make it really dark. On the opposite side were no light city. Think of the moon. Thanks. And then a cylinder again. You want to follow the curve the line? Because watch if I do straight lines that doesn't give myself under form, does it? So I need to follow the curve of the line to give that its form. Okay, now we're going to cross hatching. So hatching is one line and then cross that you simply crossing that line. So again, it's the same principle closer, my Langella, the darker the area will be. And again, you can be more precise than this. I'm just not a precise line dry, but some people are amazing at it. And also, I didn't want this lesson to take hours. So all right, so the same principle applies. Teoh are forms as it did with, um hatching, except for just now, cross hatching as well. Where your lines are most condensed is where it's gonna be the darkest and again my light source is still over here. Let's just keep it consistent. And I am following both of the lines. Now I am following this line and this lines to give me a really consistent line to shave my form. So here we follow this, lying for the side of that pyramid and a sign. Sorry. Got out of there a little bit. So cross hatching you to be aware of the two different lines. All right, so for a circle, we're not gonna do it quite the same. We're going to more like we do with the cylinder. We're gonna give it this line. Then we're going to give it a down line. That's well, it's a little different just because of the, um, angle of the circle. And again, this is just something you get better as you practice. I'm no expert. Obviously I'm just teaching you what I know about it, and you can look up more tutorials about hatching cross hatching. But I just think it's fun to get it in our heads, you know, And then we can apply those principles to our daily drying. Okay on then also are still under cross hatching for that too. So yes, practice, practice practice is how you get better. It shading with hatching and cross hatching. Now we're gonna be doing basically the same principles, but we're gonna do a little blending. So let's keep using. Well, let's try the shading graphic. So the same kind of principles for here, obviously, the more you pressed here with your stylist with the shading graphite, because that's how it's built. It's just like using chart, chalk or charcoal. I try to combine those two words over that, and the more pressure you add. Obviously, the darker gets, Um, and then do you wanna again maintain your light source and keep your dark areas consistently in the dark in your light areas, consistently in the light. Otherwise, your formal look wonky. I Have you ever seen a babbling, shaded object? It makes it look long like it was driven, drawn poorly. But again, that's something you can overcome by practicing and taking on a challenge, like drawing daily, because the more you draw, the more those things air like ingrained in you on three easier they come so that when I think I got to drive up by my circle. So I start at my circle of like here we go better. I haven't played with this brush a lot, so it's a little it will control it as well. But it is fun and definitely been shade really will have to play with it more. Yeah, clean him up. They look a whole lot better. That's another great tool as your shading as well. The eraser tool. I mean, obviously you race away. It's going to make it look cleaner and neater and give me a better look for sure. So this is just a fun worksheet for you to play with. Play around with, um, to give you some basics in patching and cross hatching, which comes very useful for shaving. I hope that was fun and informative for you, and I can't wait to see it has marred by 25. March 23 Turtle: Welcome back. Today we're drawing a hurdle. Turtles are super cute and I love drawing turtles, so this should be fun. So let's dive in and start with a sketch. The nice thing about turtles is they are definitely built a simple shapes. You got your half circle a little overly shaped down for the bottom of the shell, just a bunch of circles for like the head and the legs triangle to like. That's literally all you need journals. But sometimes the most dynamic way to make it texture is Teoh. Add two different colors. So here I've got the dark green and the vast, slightly lighter green go enough at a texture to it, and they could even go a little later to really give my initial turtle shell color too colors. So there's invasive turtle shell now on different layer. I'm gonna do the head and legs and everything. - Okay , so now that we've got our eternal on two separate layers, we can add some clipping masks, which is just a layer bub and then slip click puppy mask on again. That means we can drawn this layer, but it doesn't draw on the other layers and it just drop off later. So this is really nice for life shading, so I can just come under and get shading him, make it look like his legs were actually under the show. It also works great for highlights. You want us have those highlights. So that definitely helps with Lundy. That and you could also do multiple quippy masks on the same layer, which is useful. Because now, if I want to draw his little face, I won't have to like you and I but I want to erase it. If I was on the other layer. If I raised the I, you would also raise me shading. But because I'm on a brand new layer, I have control of just the I, which is a surprise. And then I'm gonna do the same on our show layer. Add some clipping masks. - So there got my basic shell pattern. And then if I want to add some shading that you said it could be a mask layer underneath that and then I can add some all around shadows my turtle here. And like I said before, um, the best way the shade is not to use, uh, black and white and gray, but use a darker variation of the color. Because if I go over here and I use black now, my turtle looks pretty flat. But if I'm using the variation of the color seems there's my turn it with black or even grey. That's not how eternal would look in shadow. It would be a darker variation of the greens that he has on, and that's called adding value. And we'll talk more about that in another one of our worksheet lessons. So those are found Little Turtle guy. I hope you enjoy that, and I can't wait to see your turtles. 26. March 24 Octopus: Welcome back today we're drawing an octopus. Um, I am so glad you're back and that you're doing this daily drawing. I'm just gonna start my little sketch here, and I don't know about you, but I always wish I had a octopus arms. So I think I will have our little octopus cooking in the kitchen, because that is where it would definitely be useful to have eight arms. - So the limit kind of plan out this sketches. I just think of different things that I want my optimistically holding. Then I kind of worked out where they was best be placed. So say I want to have a pot. Well, I probably wanted hold. And so I make sure his tentacle comes down around and then I want to stirring spoon. So let's get another one here with a spoon, which really make sure he's holding it around. And so that's three of our arms. He's got a towel for cleaning up the mess. Um, let's see another arm to be shopping things. So maybe he's got a hold of a carrot here. Those pieces and then we need a eight. They have a tentacle arms for the knife. That's 12345 We've got three more arms we've been still work with. What else would we do in the kitchen? We could have another arm down this way, pulled in a bowl. When you've got a complicated sketch like this, you definitely won't make sure you're planning everything out so that everything can overlap for. And then in his full, he could have a whisky thing. He's got a and to call doing that. That's 1234567 Andi, let's see. You can have this one Holy cutting board, All right, so because a super messy and super complicated, I will do another sketch over top of it. The more time you can spend sketching and planning out your drawing, the better your final product will be. But some days we just don't have time, and we just want a fun little sketch, and that's absolutely fine. But if you're going for a really great finished project, then you need to spend your time planning things on schedule. I don't do a lot of that here because this is drawing daily class. And so, um, you know, there's just not the time for planning. You wanna have a quick sketch every day, but is definitely one of those things that will help you in the long run if you can learn to do it For big projects, it's often artists. Job is to make things that are complicated. But I'm glad I had the time to plan out. This sketch was really fun to make the tentacles go around and things grip on. Okay. Synthetic with back sketch. They left with this one. That's a little better. There's still definitely parts like to be next, but it's generally tell where things were going. Alright, so that's color it. - Okay , so I'm going to utilize a clipping mask clear so that I can outlined in my legs so you can see I'm going directly on that one. And that way I won't lose which leg is where. - All right. At the base of the basis of our purpose here, I know it will start. Um, adding his accessories. Right. Okay. One thing to keep your drawing consistent is to use a lot of the same color coc me going back and just even grabbing the silver from the knife and use it for the pot. That way it keeps your drawing very unified. And then if you pick up variations of that, then it keeps you all of the things you didn't make Sure dry and look very offensive. Just a tip. Okay, let's turn first sketch. So a lot of our things and cleaned up here. But for the most first, we're looking for to get out of leather accessories. All right. Something is my octopus. Very busy in the kitchen. Um, I could keep going for quite a while on it, but I think that you're no pretty good. And I can't wait to see Your Octopus. And I hope you have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow. 27. March 25 Zebra: Hello. Welcome. Today we're drying a zebra. Next found this cool zebra picture. And I think I am going to trace over it because I want to do something called the Stripes. And so I just want to get this part go in. So I'm gonna lower my opacity and another layer, and I've got a cool, inky brush here and then do a trace. - So the main is and I want to grab this funky brush was so that I could get these really cool textures lines here on the stripes. All right, so the main reason I wanted to do that just with a quick trace is because I want to make their stripes rainbow. And so, um, I think that we should inject bits of funds as much as we can, especially now. And so, Yeah, let's make a rainbow zebra. So what I'm gonna do is I'm being a new layer here, and, um, I'm gonna go to really random brush here. Where is it? It's an abstract. Yeah. So this one, if you choose a color, it changes its color really randomly. You could get quite the rainbow, feel about it in the tone of your color that shows more of a tail color. Archy, choose like a really dark color. You'll get a dark rainbow. So I'm gonna choose a fun little color here and then hello, This whole layer, and maybe even choose the lighter version. Get some other colors in there, and then I'm going. Teoh, turn that back on and make this a clipping mask. And there you go. You have your see breast and you can action movie. You're clipping mask to change the colors. Look and say you like some of those covers, but you're like no, and add maybe more red in there. So then you could take a different fresh, uh, and that's, um, read or making a little darker and easier to see. And that's why would be masks can be so fun. Uh, really add onto your design, So, yeah, I just want to keep it short and simple, but I think that really adds turns deeper, is there and I can't wait to see your zebras. Have a great day 28. March 26 Crocodile: Hi there. Welcome back. So glad you're sticking with your daily drawing forever. That, um today we're drawing a corrected ill. So I'm just gonna jump right in a quick sketch cause I have something kind of fun I want to do after I get our crocodile going. Okay, so that was a super quick sketch, because I'm just gonna color him off real fast here. I really want to have some fun. - Okay , So I chose to do a really big crocodile here because the other day someone mentioned using the animation tool, and I thought, Well, I could show a quick thing of Have do Anami should. Now I want you to remember that there are way better people at doing these animations steps that I am and find a way better tutorials on it all in skill share. But I can give you a quick, like run down of what I know about how I've used it. Um, So if you have procreate five and procreate five, there is if you go Teoh campus and you go to animation assist, you turn it on. So when you put on animation, assist this a little bar come zone here, and this will show you all your layers. So if I duplicate this layer a couple times you can see down here, I've got, um, all the different, it's of the same layer. So if I go to the 2nd 1 here and I grab his mouth and I just just tilt enough and then I go the next layer and do the same thing, and then I duplicate that layer, and then I opened it up a little wider. And if you create any cracks rising, make sure you fill them in. You just keep doing that and you can see right under it is showing me my previous layers and those air called onion skins. And so you can see where you were. You could make your next move, so this isn't perfect. I would definitely spend more time with this. But if you go back and in the settings, you can make it slow down. And also if and so if pink homes back and forth your loops. And here I couldn't have been flung open, close, open, close or you can have it do it once. So this is what it looks like was a loop This is close. Stood depending on your animation. That's what it could do. So this is just a very simplified one. I've seen people do with words where they just move the words a little bit and they wiggle , and that makes like a cool little gift looking thing. Um, but yeah, definitely. If you are interested in using the animation tool, there are loads of skill share classes where they are amazing additional just type in procreate animation. I bet you'll find so many classes. Um and then one thing you want to know when you share it, um, if you want to share on instagram, you have to have an MP for you can't share gift. And I don't think you get your gift on Facebook either. Um uh, but either one of these would work, and then it shows you a little preview. So obviously I would take the time toe, make it not look like it was actually breaking apart there, and I have little bumps my teeth that I was missing. But other than that, it's super fun, isn't it to watch her a little gay? Be emotion. So I just thought that would be fun. Since we were doing the car could ill. It would be a really simple animation. I could make and give you a little taste of it if you want to dive into it more especially right now. Well, we have the time. So I hope that was fun for you. And I can't wait to see what you do with your park it out by. 29. March 27 Fish: Hello. Welcome back. Uh, today we're during a fish. I found this cool beta fish. Um, we had a beta fish until just a little while ago, and now we do not rest in peace. Snowball. Um, but they only live so long. And my poor kids Anyway, uh, let's get started with cool background. And then I thought I do kind of a fun, little sketchy fish on top. Sometimes when I just wanna have a little fun, I just dive right in with color, and I don't necessarily do a sketch or something. My sketches color, and then I'll do its top one over top of that. Sometimes you just got a break the rules a little bit and let yourself be creative. So I think I'm gonna jump right in this color here and go from there. I don't know if you've noticed, but I rely heavily on the color picker tool. Um, I just find that really nice to be able to pick up the exact colors that race there. And sometimes I'll pick up own, grab a color and then switch it to a higher, lower value. But it's so much fun to just pick that right up and have that color right there. So references really are key often times what I'm doing. - Maybe I'll go with my background on and like they did with the jelly fish will add a glimmer. This is just too much fun not to. There's a limit. - All right, There we go. There's a lovely little colorful beta fish for us. I hope that was fun on. I can't wait to see you tomorrow. 30. March 28 Hummingbird: hi there. Today we are drawing a hummingbird. How members are super cool little birds and, yeah, let's get in dry. A sketch here kind of sketching Bresch. - Okay , there's got my schedule rhythms and bring it up here for, however references. And let's colored up. That might be fun to do, like kind of folk already painting looking ones. Let's go paint brushes on They try this What grow up so that she'll from that, just a quick paint and see where we go from there. The's paintbrushes in the paint in section are pretty neat because in cannabis color on top . All right, my color, they don't clean up my edges and then we're gonna add some details on top of that that Okay , So if I take my, um, Sketchley, your offer, that's the start of a little kind of paint really looking bird here. So let's as New town some take a really light blue and then add a new layer and let's find good, just glow mean one. Then we're just gonna go in and add little details, kind of Fogarty, where you can just two lines and dots so not so realistic that just kind of fun. So let's see where that takes us. - I just asked him to test my flowers here. - Okay . There's a lovely little hummingbird. I hope that was fun for you, and I can't wait to see what you did. 31. March 29 Shading Worksheet: Hello. Welcome back. Um, today we're working on another worksheet, and we've done all the hatching. Then cross has to you. So we're gonna do a little shading. And it's not that different from the one we did last week. Um, we're just focusing more on where the light hits a spear and how to shade around it. And I just made this really quick practice sheets because it's a great thing to practice. So I just him in sketching, and I have a soft pastel. And basically, when you have a light source, whether it's the sun in the sky or like in a room, you want to make sure that wherever it's pointed, hitting is the lightest point of your object. And then you'll also notice, as I'm going that I am not doing lines because thistles a spear, it is surrounded. And so there's the light hitting that light of spot. And then I just shade and go doctor and friend, darker as I get back. And then you can also take this much brush his super fun inappropriate, and it's much it, like he was with real charcoal, really creates that shaving again. You one that's much backwards that you being that darkness elements the furthest point away from the light. The lightest one is touching it. And this I always just come back and clean these books. That's we he's here to do. And, of course, if you're shading an object, um, it's really easy to do. Could be mask because then you wouldn't have Teoh clean up your edge. It's, um, so I'm using the soft pastel, but as you go around, the point of this issue could use just about any type of brush. So, like if I took like a paint brush and I make sure I'm coming in lighter as I get closer where the light is hitting my spear, nice to me are smudged it. It can be done justice easily with color and a paintbrush as they can with charcoal. So that's another reason why. And when did you just really simple work? Because you could use it just about Caini type of, for if she wanted, and I have to go around in practice that brush shades best this one smears, so make sure impressing really hard for back here and getting my lighter elements towards the front and it also can smudge itself, which is cool. This was the damp brush I just grabbed whatever brush clean up the edge, go. It's not perfect, but you can see may sphere here, and it instantly gives us very flat circle form. Um, let's try it with another brush and then you can also, instead of just pressing, are even add a darker color to your edges to sometimes you brush. That doesn't change whether you add pressure, Do you still need to shave it? That was with, like, a spray paint brush. And now with deep I took them really on a flat brush. Okay, so what I want to do is keep darkening and saturating my color. Does it go back during this kind of a look? Is that still sheeted? You just have a different texture to your shady. See if there's any other pressures that might be hard if we did kind of like a watercolor brush. So for that you'd wanna start really like, Do you even start with just like a base coat for the whole thing and then just keep adding layers tours back and once again, this work she is just to help you grow as an artist and, uh, practice some of the basic skills that come in handy and you draw daily. So, um, yeah, use it as many times as you need practice in different mediums. And sorry, I forgot to stay in the beginning. It's in the resource is tab. And, um, you can download or print it whatever is easiest for you, and I hope you get your shade on. 32. March 30 Elephant: Hello. Welcome back. Um, today's process is an elephant, and I don't know about you, but I am home all day, every day with my kids and my four year old and I have been drawing animals. He loves animals. And so I've probably John L. If it votes 400 times this week, So, um yeah, I'm gonna drawing you an elephant with basic shaped, but still make it look like I'm in adult, not a child. So, um, we'll start with the elephant body into a rectangle. But I'm gonna do it slowly into line on this side, move that over a little bit, and then we're gonna take that slanty line up on DNA, make a curvy lines, and then we're gonna take her science, You lying down and adds a little feast. Just fill those in smooth on the next layer. We're gonna get a color. We want to go with it, make a big old triangle law in here so self into your shape, and then just give him a quick outline in detail. And then last. I think I'll add some Scots, but I'm gonna do it with a textured brush here. All right, And there you go. There's a lovely little elephant for you. Super easy. And I hope that was fun on I can't wait to see what your 33. March 31 Chicken: Hello. You've made it to the end of March. Welcome. Today. We're gonna draw chicken. Um, and I thought I just to have fun illustrations, so I'm just going to start out with basic body shape. I'm gonna get my hand. I actually like that fresh hold up. Find a better basic chicken shape. Go fill that in there. And then I think on a new layer, I'll do like beak and stuff. Okay, so there's air chickens. And I thought on this bottom layer, I'm going Teoh adequate mess. And on the would be mask, I grabbed up a few different, uh, different fund textures. So let's grab this one here. And what is fun about these? I got them from unspool ash, which is great for free images. But what's fun about these is you can add them can you are chicken body on, and then we can kind of, like, destroy them, so speak by adding more colors and textures on. So, if I was to make it to screen and then I added some, let's make it kind of Ah, red Ken. Here, I need a better brush. Any really scratchy, scratchy brush I don't like that Let's put it back to normal so we can see it really well and then go from there. All right, it really fresh go ended up grabbing stucco brush. It's no good texture on their and we can no complaint with. That's kind of fun. That's cool, Chicken like that. And then maybe I'll go into the the letter layer here and take a scratchy research. Mary erased the letters a little bit. So you're not going to read the chickens?
