Drawing Pencil Sketches Free Drawing Lessons

Hi Fellow Artists

Thank you for your continued support, and for signing up for this newsletter. It is my hope that you get plenty and useful knowledge that you can use from this site. You are free to drop me a line if there is anything you wish to know about drawing or sketching—or any drawing problem you have!

The past year was very interesting. You all can attest to that. It had its challenges; it also came with its share of joys. But most importantly, we learned and grew together. There is always something for each one of us to learn; whichever level we may be in this art. In the past year we learnt how to draw some basic things: flowers, nature, dogs, rabbits, horses, funny cartoons, etc.

With the lessons learnt, and the natural knack to sketch most of you possess, I have so much confidence that if I ask you to draw anything, you will do so without any hassles. This year I hope that we shall cover a lot more ground in the exploration of our unique and wonderful art.

We shall move from drawing basic things to more complex sketches. And to make sure that you will benefit to the maximum, we have copious amounts of free online lessons covering these broad subjects. We are equipped with even more resources so that you may make rapid progress in drawing. Talking of progress, we so much love to see the progress that you make. The satisfaction in our hearts when we see you sketch successfully is akin to the satisfaction of a farmer seeing crops he has been watering start to bloom.

One important thing that you all should do so that your art may be flawless is to crop your images. You can use the free tool Gimp.com if you want to crop your image and make it bright so it can show well.

You should also remember to tell people something about your art. When uploading, tell people a little bit about yourself, what you do, why you like doing, how long you have been drawing, your aspirations as a budding pencil sketch artist, and any other thing that will be useful to fellow artists. If you do so, you will get far better response about your drawing that will help you improve or encourage you to draw like a pro. For better visibility, place the portraits facing up, and not lying on the side.

As moderators we will not publish your pencil sketches unless these guidelines are adhered to. The purpose of sharing your sketches is for all of us to learn from each other. It does not make much sense if the sketch is not visible, or looks like not much artistic effort went into the sketch. That requirement is for your own good.

When your work gets published on site here, you get some good exposure. The exposure will attract some critiques and valuable comments that will help you to grow. There are a lot of benefits to be gained from here. You might want your friends to be part of this art bonanza. Invite your friends to subscribe and you’ll get a free book on how to draw.

So let’s get cracking and draw some wonderful sketches we can be proud of!
