Drawing is a great way to express yourself, but sometimes you need some pointers to aid you in your drawing experience; so in this Inscrutable I'll be giving you some tips that have been given to me!

Step 1: Warming Up

Dots or lines are two very good ways to warm up your hand before drawing!
-try to draw the dots/lines in unison.
-Don't spend time trying to perfect them, instead draw them at a steady pace.

Step 2: Doodle!

Doodling is fun and a great way to pass the time! It can also improve your drawing skills! D not forget to save every doodle in a safe page so you can look at them later! I've included some of my doodles for all of you lovely people lurking on Inscrutables!

Step 3: Music!

A great way to flourish your creativity is to listen to music! Try to listen to interesting music, or even music you've never heard before!

Step 4: New Tools!

Step 5: Sharing Is Caring!

Quick and to the point, this is very informative. Here is another tip for your collection: study your subject's anatomy. Look up anatomy charts online, find reference photos, and, if at all possible, study your subject in real life. I am actually working on an 'ible composed of general art tips, but mine will only cover specific mediums, unlike this one, which is much more 'general'. It is perfect for a beginner!

By the way, here is one of my more recent drawings. It is a portrait of my grandmother's dog.
