Draw this woman’s head with me – Easy #InkTober

October means #inktober in the world of drawing. You may find the idea of drawing something everyday a bit daunting or maybe, like me, you don’t have the time!

If you have always wanted to draw but were not quite sure where to start, then watch this video – as many times as you like – and follow along with me. You will surprise yourself and maybe your friends and family too!

Get yourself something to draw with and something to draw on – yes even if it is only a ball pint pen and the back of an envelope – and follow along. You can stop and start the video with the space bar and you can rewatch the video as many times as you like if you get stuck.

There are no rules with drawing, you can use any pen or pencil you like and draw on any surface you like. Keep drawing and your own unique style will eventually emerge.

Remember, if you want a photograph, use a camera.

If you are pleased with your drawing, post it online at Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag – #shoobeedoodling – so I can see it and maybe I’ll give you a thumbs up and a follow!

How to draw from Photographs



Some people find it hard to sketch in public, so why not get some practice in drawing people out of catalogues and magazines? The models are great – they don’t move! do one everyday and you will soon feel that maybe you do it from real life in a cafe or on the street.

You can see the other drawings I did from this catalogue on my Patreon page here:

Remember that you are not drawing a photograph. That’s what cameras are for. You are drawing a sketch. Your drawing does not have to be a portrait nor does it even have to look the same or use the same colours. It’s your sketch interpretation.

If you make a mistake, that’s great – we learn from mistakes. see if you can finish the drawing then have another go and see if you can get it right, Don’t abandon the drawing if you make a mistake – that can turn into a habit and you’ll never finish anything. Often you can save a drawing or painting by just keeping on going!
