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! 😀
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!
How to Draw a Leaf Step by Step
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.
Just a sneak peek: here is a couple of drawings I’ve made for Paint & Draw practical art magazine. 🙂
The theme of the articles are textures in ink – I show my process of analyzing a texture and designing it with ink liners. Coming soon!
I’m personally a fan of this magazine, and highly recommend it to everybody who is interested in developing the skills and learning something new. And it’s also very inspirational! 😀 It’s a great honor to be among the authors.
Yesterday I was away from the keyboard, and here is a new tutorial published on Envato Tuts+: How to Draw 10 Different Varieties of Berry. Welcome! 🙂
I did my best to provide simple explanations and show some tips on using graphite pencils.
That post is part of a series called 10 Years of Envato Tuts+! which is a sequence of amazing educational content united by the number 10 😀
New tutorial published on Envato Tuts+: How to Draw Ice Cream Step by Step. Quick and easy! 😀 I was using a graphite pencil and ink liners to create expressive yet accurate food sketches. Welcome!
Wishing you a wonderful weather that is just right for a portion of ice cream 😀
Let me introduce a new tutorial on sketching with a graphite pencil and ink liners 🙂 I’m showing a fun, quick and easy way to draw. 😀
How to Draw a Banana
As you can see, there are three different drawings: a banana in a solid peel, a slice, and an example with a partly removed peel.
Exploring an object in multiple variants is so useful for developing the skills and creating a library of things that can be drawn from memory 🙂
