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.
- GIMP - This is a free image editor. If you have a photoshop, you can use it too.
- 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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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 5: Add the Hat
Step 6: Add the Eyes
Step 7: Add the Eyeballs
Step 8: Put Some Eyebrows
Step 9: Make the Monster Smile
Step 10: Put an Ear
Step 11: Add a Nose
Step 12: Add the Stick or the Fishing Rod
Step 13: Draw the Arms
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.
