The Problem With Starting A Drawing The moment you start drawing, you mess up and you erase.  Then you try again, only to mess up again and erase.  Doing this a few more times and you give up. Why can't you draw well?! If this sounds like you, I can tell you right away, your whole mindset is wrong.  You may have seen someone online start with an eyeball or start in a corner of a page with a marker and draw something incredible, but people like that are outliers. They don't draw like most professionals do. Drawing Like A Master You, me and many of the great masters have to "buil ..read more

Cartoon Feet Formula Feet are often one of the most neglected parts of the body when it come to drawing. It's not that they aren't important, it's just that they aren't very "glamours." Also, most of the time they're covered up completely by shoes so we don't even get to draw them as much as everything else. Still, we should know what's going on inside the shoes. And women often were shoes that expose their feet so, we still need to know how to draw them. In this lesson, we'll do just that.  I'll share with you the three part formula that helps me draw feet, plus more. In this lesson we'l ..read more

Cartoon Body Formulas I spent a lot of time on cartoon heads.  There's a lot to know about drawing heads.  There's just as much to know about drawing the body. By "body", I mean the torso and hips. Cartoon bodies can be simplified so that you don't need to go as deep as you would with the head although, for best results, it's good know how to draw a more realistic anatomically correct body. In this lesson I'll show you some simple body formulas you can use, and how some of those formulas can be modified to draw some slightly more naturalistic looking body shapes. We'll go over: Supe ..read more

Cartoon Ear Formulas Out of all the features on the head, ears are treated most like an afterthought.  I know that I ignored them for most of my drawing career. It's rare when anyone really pays too much attention to a drawing of an ear, unless it's just down right terrible. It doesn't really help that cartoon ears are almost error proof. You can almost draw anything, call it an ear and you're done. When it comes to drawing more naturalistic cartoon ears, you can get away with knowing pretty much nothing about ear anatomy and end up with  a good drawing of an ear. Because of thi ..read more
