And really had no clue after reading the drawing tutorials or making a mess of the whole thing?

Well, there has been loads of poor or bad advice in learning how to draw. There is one important thing I’d like to mention here and that is when you start your drawing, what is your intention? What do you want your end result to be? Ever thought about that?

It could be that you are not passionate about drawing and sketching, maybe you are not in the right frame of mind or someone has asked you to do a specific style or type of drawing and you are not quite sure how to start?

There could be a thousand things but it does, in a way, boil down to your intention. Right?

If you are really “gung-ho” about drawing or painting, you will produce a masterpiece sooner or later! This is where your skills kick in as you develop experience in applying various techniques of drawing.

If you get ridiculous advice on how to hold a pencil (example: “holding a pencil between your small finger and thumb” and you try this to find it impossible to draw anything, you know it is silly and incorrect!)

As you are bright and passionate with your drawing, you try what feels most comfortable – even trying with your non-writing hand to discover that is also not the right way to draw! And so, after getting all the basics of drawing under your belt, you will know when reading tutorials if the information is correct of not.

A true artist will always look for new ways of doing things, drawing or painting and will develop his or her own unique styles to influence all your peers.

Drawing, sketching, and art generally is a vast area so subjective it has become the least codified knowledge of all. Don’t believe me? Check it out here at MoMa (Museum of Modern Art, NY)

Ask a few people what their opinion is about art, what they like, what they don’t etc. people usually love to talk about their opinions. I know I do.
