Picture of Don't Know How to Draw? No Problem. Here's an Easy Way

I have a lottery website where I teach players how to understand the lottery from a mathematical perspective. And I know that adding some visual presentation will add value to my content for sure.

But I am not a very good artist. :(

Then I found an article about how to draw even if you are not an artist. I find it interesting so I tried one myself.

They say practice makes perfect. So I made a couple of drawings and guess what. I did it. And I find it so easy and quick too.

This simple technique is the one I use for my lottery blog. You can do the same thing on your blog too.

Let me show how I do it.

You need:

  1. GIMP - This is a free image editor. If you have a photoshop, you can use it too.
  2. Some spare time to practice

For this particular tutorial, I will show you how to draw a monster on a boat fishing in the middle of the sea.

So if you are ready, let's go.

Step 1: Setup Your Background

Step 2: Add the Sea

The sea doesn't need to be straight. It can be rugged to make it similar to the surface of the sea.

Step 3: Add the Boat

Step 4: Add the Body of the Monster

Step 14: Add the Sun

And that's it.

Everything is simple. As you can see, I put the basic shapes (circle, square, rectangle, triangle) together to form a figure. The shapes are not perfect. They don't have to. You can make some slight modification to the size and shapes when necessary.

It's not the kind of drawing that you will bring in a painting competition. But it's a drawing that you can use to add value to your blog content, projects, or presentations.
