If you want to draw something but you don’t consider yourself an artist, you can draw some Pokémon—they can be easily created out of simple shapes, and they’re so heavily stylized that you don’t need to worry about realism.
Bring out the artist in you! Let’s explore the hand-drawn illustration trend below.
Did you know that turtles belong to one of the oldest reptile groups in the world—beating snakes, crocodiles, and alligators? The first proto-turtles are believed to have existed about 220 million years ago!
Big cats are my favorite subject to draw. They’re elegant and powerful, and their body has a simple, yet beautiful rhythm. Today, I’d like to show you how to draw a tiger—from the “skeleton” and muscles to the fur, details, and stripes. I will lead you step by step, so that you can follow me at your own pace without getting lost.
In this tutorial, we’ll draw an angelfish—a small freshwater fish with a round body and elongated fins of a complex angular shape. This contrast makes an angelfish a true creative discovery for an artist!
Roses are very popular flowers, commonly seen as a symbol of love. They’re very difficult to draw, though—they’re made of many layers of petals. You need to add them carefully one by one, and then shade the whole construction. In this quick tutorial I will show you how to do it if you want to build your own rose from scratch, without relying on a reference. But if you want, feel free to check any of these ThemeKeeper Market references to help yourself:
Do you remember those color-by-numbers pages you used to play with as a child? You were provided with the outlines, and your job was to fill them with colors as they showed, to create an artwork the author had planned for you. It was fun without any stress!
In this tutorial, we’ll learn to draw a fish using the example of a rainbow trout. This beautiful underwater creature has a refined body shape and an amazing spotty pattern!
Of all the mammals, grizzly bears are one of the easiest to draw—they are big and plump, with thick fur concealing the silhouette, and they’re plantigrade, so their legs are similar to ours. Moreover, their characteristic face with tiny eyes and a huge muzzle makes it easy to keep the proportions right. So, even if you’re a complete beginner at drawing, you can safely try drawing a realistic bear with me!
In this short tutorial, we’ll draw a cute bunny from scratch. To be precise, we’ll observe several parts of a rabbit’s body that often cause questions: the nose, eyes, ears, and a fluffy tail in the front and side view.
They say the eyes are the mirror to the soul, and it’s not just true about humans. The eyes of animals, no matter how different, speak volumes about the creature’s personality and emotions. Because of this, it’s not so easy to draw eyes that look both realistic and alive, especially when you can’t use a reference.
Chibi is a subtype of the manga style, where the characters are given child-like features to appear cute (small body, huge head, large eyes). Because of this heavy exaggeration, chibis are very easy to draw—no knowledge of human anatomy required! And once you can draw a chibi base, you can give it various outfits and facial expressions, which is also not hard to do. Because of this, drawing chibis can be a great activity for a beginner!
You can remember them from your childhood—Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Disney’s Robin Hood… All these walking and talking animals that are so human-like that you start treating them like humans. These characters are anthropomorphic: they’re basically animals with their bodies modified to resemble humans both in the way of moving and in their general behavior.
In this tutorial we’ll go through the full process of drawing a piece of Hermione Granger fan art from scratch, coloring it in greyscale and then enlivening the illustration with bright colors.
