After last week’s Scaredy Cats story video – The Killer Catflap – I thought I’d draw an evil cockroach this week. see the video here

It’s different to the way I drew the roaches in the book and video, mainly because I’ve been a bit more attentive to the true shape and design of a cockroach. Not too attentive though! This is really about characterisation – turning an animal or inanimate object into a humanised character

How to draw a coffee table – Number Five

It’s the final day of How to Draw Tables week and today you can learn to draw a round, pedestal dining table.

Inspired by a request from Joseph Hernadez, who asked me to draw a dining table, I am doing a different “how to draw tables” video every day this week. Asked to draw a dining room table, what style should I choose? Round, square, oval, octagonal – three, four or more legs? Maybe a pillar style tripod – so many choices. So I am drawing a different table every day this week.

As a bonus, I have made an extra , exclusive video about drawing tables – any table you like – Here on my Patreon Page where you will also find a free pdf download sheet available too.

Let me know what you think – should I do other themed weeks?
