10 DRAWING TIPS for Digital Artists – How to Draw Better in 4 Minutes

Hello there. And thanks for joining me. I'm Corel Painter Master, Aaron Rutten
And in this video, I'm going to share ten tips to help you draw better
Tip number one is drawing with your elbow
No, I don't mean holding the pen with your elbow
and trying to draw like this
I mean, rather than drawing with your fingers or your wrist,
keep your fingers and your wrist completely locked
and draw using your elbow as the center of rotation
That will make sure that your lines are nice and curved and smooth
and everything like that
Tip number two is to draw faster strokes
because sometimes when you're drawing
if you move your hand to slowly, the line will come out wobbly
because there's more time for your hand to move
but if you draw your strokes faster, quicker
you're going to get nice smooth curves and straight lines much easier
Tip number three is draw more spontaneous gestures
For example, when you're drawing hair, just follow a general direction
but just kind of go for it
don't draw one hair, then the next hair, and the next hair and so on
Be spontaneous about it
You'll notice a lot of life drawing and figure drawing
sketches are very loose and spontaneous
Tip number four is draw segmented lines
You don't have to draw a single solid line
when you're outlining something you can break it up into individual little segments
One little piece at a time
That makes it a lot easier to draw sometimes
Tip number five is to draw from different angles
and rotate your page
because that makes it a lot easier to get certain angles when you're drawing
Tip number six is to flip your canvas
Flipping your canvas both horizontally and vertically
makes it really easy to see areas where you made mistakes
and it helps keep everything even and in proportion
It can also be really helpful to freshen up your image
because after you've been working with something a really long time,
you sometimes get kind of sick of looking at it
And flipping it kind of makes it look fresh
Tip number seven is study primitive shapes
Primitive shapes make up every single object that you can draw
My head is a sphere, my neck is a cylinder,
my torso is a cylinder,
my arms are cylinders, my fingers are cylinders
and once you know how to draw and shade all of those primitive shapes,
it makes it really easy to draw and shade anything
Tip number eight is draw iterative sketches
Make a sketch
and then create a new layer on top of that and create another sketch
make another layer on top of that with another sketch
And with each sketch, your drawing is going to get more and more refined
Tip number nine is to draw often
You cannot draw often enough
If you want to get really good at drawing, you have to do it all the time
Imagine a bodybuilder, they work out all the time and they get all buff and
pump up their muscles
"Look at my muscles they are so huge"
They don't work out once a month, they work out every single day
And your imagination and your hand-eye coordination
and all of your drawing skills work the same way
They are a muscle and you have to exercise them often to make them stronger
The last tip is number 10 and that's drawing a variety of different objects
Get out of your comfort zone and if you always draw faces, try drawing animals
If you always draw animals, try drawing buildings
Experiment with different genres
You can make abstract art or you can make surrealism
or still-life or impressionism
Get a lot of variety because all of that experience is going to help you
If I'm drawing something that I've never drawn before,
it makes it a lot easier to know how to draw certain subjects
For example, if somebody asked me to draw zebra
and I've never drawn one before, but I have drawn a horse,
I could take a lot of that information from learning how to draw a horse
and apply it to drawing a zebra
Maybe it's not something as close as a zebra,
maybe somebody's asking me to draw a dog or something,
I'd still have an idea how to draw fur
and how to draw four-legged animal and so on
So all of that experience really helps
when you're learning how to draw different kinds of things
So there you go
Those are ten tips to help you draw better
