Drawing Step by Step

On this page you will find pictures for drawing step by step. Each lesson begins by sketching the basic shapes you see, focusing on the position on the paper and the proportion of the shapes in regards to each other. You will continue by adding more shapes, and finally drawing in the defining lines and details. 

This is a great exercise for both adults and children, as it helps the artist concentrate on the shapes of the lines and how they connect to each other. Remember, drawing is seeing -- when you can see how the pieces form the whole, you can create a more realistic drawing. 

Choose from the pictures below. If you find one you especially like, you can even print it out with the PDFs at the bottom of the page.
