I’ve known Renita for a while now. Originally from America, Renita now lives in Wigtown, which the book town in Scotland, with the most stunning views across the estuary. When I’ve performed at the festival, the children have all been whipped up to a frenzy by Renita, who welcomes them in and “settles them down” [...]
Feeling like a a bit top drawer? Learn how to draw a crown, so you can design your own when you are ruler of the world!
Yes! drawstuffrealeasy is back with this quick video showing you how to draw a skull
There’s something very soothing about watching Koi Carp lazing around in a pond. There’s something very soothing about drawing them too – try it for yourself!
Here’s a new video on how to draw an eye. I’ve done this with crayon this time and it is all from memory. I will do another one late from a photograph with pencil and take more time analysing it.
I went for a lovely walk in the Forest with my daughter today. We had just finished filling our containers with about 3 lbs of blackberries when my daughter spotted, with her keen hunter’s ear, three Stags, really quite close by. The biggest stood it’s ground and watched us as I slowly got my phone out, switched it on, found the camera app, turned that on and waited for it to warm up and then zoomed in and finally took this picture. Then it decided it had had enough and ran off with the others. It was very dark compared to the one of the others, which was a normal fawn/red deer colour. Very exciting to be so close.
Today is international left-hander’s day, so I thought I would have a go at drawing my left hand with my left hand – not easy if you are right handed. Have a go yourself, but don’t throw the pencil across the room if you get frustrated!
I love this video! Every time I pick up a pencil I wonder how they are made and this video show how they are made at the Staedtler factory. Marvel at the calm precision of the machinery!
The Rise of the Planet of the Apes open in britain today and to celebrate I thought I would show you how to draw Caesar. Have fun!
I have a lot to do in a very short time! I seem to have been very distracted by the Youtube NextUp Competition in the last few weeks. It’s a good thing I won, as I put an awful lot of work and effort into it!!
That leaves me with a very short amount of time to finish my Olympia series. Printers are scheduled and I have to get everything finished on time. I delivered the artwork for book five on monday and pencil sketches for book six yesterday. So that’s three books to finish by the 12 of September! Today I’m doing a major rewrite to book seven and book eight needs a lot of rewriting too.
Will I get it all done? I have a day by day schedule mapped out, so I know exactly how much I need to do each day. I always try and do a little more than I need to win myself time incase problems occur. I think I’ll do it – well, there is no alternative – I will do it!
Then it’s off to Creator Camp at YouTube for a week. That is the big prize at the end, that keeps me inspired to finish a mountain of work on time. :)
I’m very busy finishing my Olympia series at the moment and haven’t got much time to prepare drawing lessons so this is just a bit of fun for you.
