How to Draw a Turtle – New Tutorial on Envato Tuts+

Articles & Drawing Tutorials

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! 😀

Let me introduce you a new tutorial, it was just published on the Envato Tuts+ website 🙂

Learn Colored Pencil Techniques and How to Create a Trio of Flowers

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! 😀

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.
