Gret news! A new tutorial on drawing turtles was just published on Envato Tuts+ 🙂 There I’m showing my process of depicting a turtle from scratch in a side and an aerial view, using the HB and 3B graphite pencils.
It was a pleasure to work on this material – a turtle is a true treasure from the artistic standpoint; it presents rich and versatile textures and a complex body structure. My goal was to transform this complexity into something simple and easy to understand.
I hope you’ll love this tutorial. Have fun! 😀
I have a couple of new drawing tutorials published on Envato Tuts+!
…Here I demonstrate the process of drawing and shading a fish (a typical trout) from scratch, using just graphite pencils.
And the theme of this lesson is drawing an angelfish 😀 Welcome and have fun!
A new tutorial is published on Envato Tuts+! In this lesson, I’ve focused on drawing the nose, eyes, ears and the tail.

How to Draw a Goat Step by Step – the new tutorial is available on Envato Tuts+! 🙂
I demonstrate the process of drawing an adult goat and a baby goat, using just a couple of graphite pencils. 😀
Goats are so cute, aren’t they?
Let me introduce you a new tutorial, it was just published on the Envato Tuts+ website 🙂
In this lesson, I’m talking about the basic principles of drawing with the colored pencils, including various types of hatching, layering colors, blending and burnishing techniques. Here you can find all the necessary fundamentals and pictorial examples for creating your own colored pencil art. 🙂
It’s not just a bare theory, but a demonstration of the drawing process. I draw three poppies, each of a different coloring, and unite them into a harmonious composition.
I hope you’ll enjoy the tutorial. Have fun! 😀
As you might notice, I often draw animals. Those animals usually have horns or antlers; I love their amazing varied texture so much! 😀 These structures are wonderful from the artistic standpoint. 🙂 That’s why the theme of drawing antlers is so close to me.
Let me introduce my new tutorial published on Envato Tuts+ – How to Draw Antlers Step by Step. I’m showing my process of designing the deer antlers from scratch with a graphite pencil and inking the artwork.
In this tutorial, I’m showing the process of drawing a frog from scratch, using a graphite pencil and a variety of ink liners, including a white gel pen. 🙂
In the second part of this lesson, I talk about the advantages of using toned paper and how it can help you to enhance your drawing skills. Let’s have fun!
I’m happy to introduce the new tutorial on the natural (or autumn?) theme!
Here I’m showing the process of designing a leaf from scratch and the basic graphite pencil shading techniques 🙂
Four leaf shapes are covered in the lesson: maple, oak, fig, and four-leaf clover. This tutorial is suited to the beginner level, too!
New tutorial is published on Envato Tuts+ 🙂
Here I’m showing how to draw a shark with a pencil, and then – with black and grey ink liners 🙂
I’m happy to announce that a new tutorial was just published on Envato Tuts+ 🙂
How to Draw an Octopus Step by Step
I’m showing a process of drawing an octopus from scratch, talking about the anatomic features of this amazing creature, and then – the inking part. I used mostly the dotted (stippling) technique for completing this ink artwork.
In this lesson, I was paying additional attention to the significant details, like drawing the arms (commonly known as the tentacles) of an octopus.
It’s such a wonderful coincidence that this tutorial is live today – when the Inktober challenge is going forward at a steady gait.
