Drawing Step by Step

On this page, you’ll find pictures for drawing step by step. Each lesson begins by sketching the basic shapes you see. This way, you can focus on the position of the image on the paper. You can also check on the proportion of the shapes in regards to each other. Then you’ll continue by adding more shapes, and finally completing the drawing with the defining lines and details.

Drawing step by step 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.
