How to draw for beginners

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist, Pablo Picasso.

If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced, Vincent Van Gogh.

Drawing is an art that gives us a sense of peace, fulfillment, and pleasure.If you draw when you are feeling agitated, grumpy, and stressed out, you may end up feeling a little more relaxed, content, and at peace.

There are many great apps for drawing illustrations and comics digitally such as Procreate, Clip Studio Paint, Gimp (a free cross-platform image editor), Krita (an open-source and free painting software), Photoshop, and MediBang Paint (a free digital painting and manga creation software).

Procreate

Procreate is the most powerful, affordable, and intuitive digital illustration app available for iPad. There is not subscription or renewal fee, you just pay for the app once and that’s all.

Clip Studio Paint

Clip Studio Paint is one of the best drawing applications. It includes “3D models of characters, items, and backgrounds that you could pose and angle to further help as a visual reference.” It can also extract a pose from an image using the Pose Scanner. However, Clip Studio Paint is moving its business model towards a subscription based service, so I strongly advise you against using it.

The tool palette is found in the lef-hand side of the program. It gives access to varios drawing and editing tools, such as Zoom, Move, Pen, Rotate, Pencil, Brush, Eraser, etc. Typically, there is a canvas or drawing space in the middle and six more panels around it: subtool, tool property, color wheel, resources, navigator and layers. File, New creates a new illustration. File, Save as saves your canvas.

From the Materials window, drag and drop a 3D model into your scene: All materials, 3D, Body type. Next, pose your character: All Materials, 3D, Pose.

Hands can be posed on a character either by clicking on each individual finger joint or by using 3D, Pose, Hand. On the tool palette, select the operation tool (it is used to select and transform vector objects). Once you have selected your character, click on display object list. Switch to the Manga Perspective section. It allows you to configure a manga-like perspective with the depth emphasized when editing a 3D drawing figure. Besides, you can change the light source, the body shape, the camera, etc.
