Most kids I know love to draw. It’s a great way to express yourself and have fun, and as a bonus, you can use your drawing skills to make gifts for others.
Who knows – one day, you can use those skills to make money, too. If you want to learn to draw better, here are some drawing tips for kids.
You’ve probably heard the saying, “Practice makes perfect.” Well, that’s a lie. Exercise does not make perfect, but it does improve.
No matter how good your drawing skills are now, you can still get used to them and get better. Even experts continue to practice and learn all the time.
What’s that – you’re too busy? How about drawing when ads come in during your favorite tv show. You can easily get 20 minutes of practice if you do that during a one-hour show ad.
Use size to indicate distance.
The closer you are, the bigger it looks. So if you have two things on the page and want to make the look too long, make it smaller than the other.
This works even better when you enter a straight line, called a spaceline, down the page. Clear areas where your two items cross those lines.
Draw the objects at the bottom of the page
If you are drawing two trees, and one is close to you, draw the one at the bottom of the page. This will make it seem closer to you. Best of all, draw it at the bottom of the page and larger than any other tree.
Now try adding a borderline across the page, somewhere, so you skip trees. Clear the line where you cross the trees because the trees will be in front of the line.
You’ve just done three things to make your drawing look three-dimensional and realistic. That wasn’t easy, was it?
The next step is to apply the tips you have learned to your drawings. This will help them to look more confident. Even if you draw cartoons and not real drawings, like Little Singham for example, size and forecasting will improve your drawings.
So if you want to draw better, take these kids drawing tips and apply them. Get acquainted (gain, obtain) with present-day drawings, and soon your new skills will amaze everyone, including you.
Remember to maintain a positive attitude and go through the page with your beautiful creations! Happy drawing!
