My ‘How to Draw ANYTHING!’ YouTube video has now had over 100,000 views on YouTube. I am an incredibly chuffed artist to be able to help others learn the basics of drawing in this way via social media and the internet.
1st of October to 2nd November is the world’s biggest drawing festival #thebigdraw starts today. Let’s get everyone drawing! 1 Oct – 2 Nov #art The Big Draw so get your pencils out and have a doodle. Here’s my Doctor Who Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman Timelapse portraits to inspire you. Don’t get freaked out by them but check out my youtube channel via the vids and go to the ‘How to Draw’ channel for a lot of basics videos. Enjoy 🙂
Interesting little article about drawing in the Independent that states ‘Toddlers who can draw at four are more likely to grow up to be clever’…
Grand statement and based on twins too which we were blessed to have. From the article ‘The correlation is moderate, so our findings are interesting’ and ‘Drawing ability does not determine intelligence; there are countless factors, both genetic and environmental, which affect intelligence later in life.’ which means ‘Thanks for the grant this really means little at all but we had to publish something for the money we had’.
And was this pointless study funded by taxpayers? Who knows but I will say that drawing and art are very rewarding at any age and not just for toddlers – though some art art schools and in galleries never progress from toddler style art 😉
Do enjoy any creative activity you may be involved in.
At last after a long day with interesting thorns and thistles on technical bits and bobs my How to Draw Dusty Crophopper narrated film is on Youtube. This is the first of three from the Planes 2 Fire and Rescue film with Dipper and Blade next up on the drawing board. Live drawing to inspire and help beginners with full narration. Enjoy the film and doodling.
Here’s a short time-lapse film of an overview of drawing Dust Crophopper from the new Disney movie Planes 2 – Fire and Rescue. A full narrated film will be online soon of Dusty and there will be films of Lil’ Dipper and Blade Ranger too.
And here is the full narrated film of How to Draw Rex from Toy Story. Now there are 5 Characters from Toy Story and they along with others are all in the ‘How to Draw’ Youtube playlist. So get you pencils and enjoy some doodling.
In the previous post was the link to the full narrated video of drawing Hamm from the Toy Story films for beginners. Here is the short Time-lapse film to get a quick over view of the drawing from start to finish.
With a little possible inclement weather coming in to the UK and the prospect of kids trapped indoors here is a narrated video on how to draw Cowgirl Jessie from Toy Story. So get your pencils, paper and popcorn and enjoy a bit of drawing fun.
