Drawing is complicated, right? Well, it doesn’t need to be, it’s just that sometimes the subject in question appears to be far too complex: the more you look at it the worse it gets, until eventually you become convinced that it simply doesn’t want you to draw it. This is rubbish, of course. You can draw anything, providing you look at it in the correct way and approach it with the right knowledge. Drawing, as a famous artist once said, is 90% observation and 10% actual art.
The common mistake beginner artists make is trying to draw every little detail and not giving up until this is achieved, however awful the result. Now, not only is this tedious and extremely un-fun, but it’s also pretty much impossible. Even the most accomplished artist will tell you that he rarely draws every single line. No, instead he / she simplifies it slightly, picking the larger sections of dark and light so that the true shape and design of the piece can be exposed. Drawing, you see, is not always about what you can see: it’s also about the dark bits in the shadows. And they are a good place to start because they are definite. Definition is what you want when drawing anything, and for that reason, drawing in a darker room is actually more beneficial to the beginner than drawing in one flooded with light.
Start any drawing by identifying what is dark and what is light, then, once you’ve created a vague outline, lightly sketch these parts in. Once you’ve done that the whole piece should start to take shape. You’ll be able to see what goes where, and it’ll start to make more sense.
