Drawing is a fun artistic skill to learn that can become a great hobby. At first, the quality of your drawings can seem like a huge obstacle. Maybe you believe you need professional classes to do something good, but it’s not true. By drawing just for fun, you can save money and improve your skills. To draw without taking classes, draw sketches of short, shaded lines and figures using geometric shapes and practice as much as possible.

Choose an object. Try to select something that has meaning for you, if possible, as your favorite flower or your dog. In the beginning, it will be easier to draw using a reference than the imagination, so drawing something you enjoy will help you focus.
For starters, you do not need special método fan art items. Any pen, pencil or paper handy will do.

Draw short lines. Press the pencil lightly against the paper. Focus on the line you are going to draw and forget the object for now. Do not think about your dog; Start with a sketch. The contour of the dog is a line between the animal and the environment. Make this line with short strokes.
The shorter the strokes, the firmer your drawing will look.
Do not criticize your work. Be quick and go improving your outline.

Draw the details. When you have a basic outline of the object, start drawing the inside of it. Look for striking points on the object, distinguishing marks such as a notch in a cup or a tuft of hair on the dog that will give you an idea of where to place the nearby lines.

Make the shadows. The shading is a bit more difficult, but gives your drawings a sense of light and depth. Observe the way the sun illuminates the object. Start by making even marks in darker areas using a pointed pencil. As the tip is worn, proceed to the shaded areas. Press harder to make darker marks.

You can also practice by making a shading bar. Start at one end of the paper and move the pencil back and forth along the sheet. Apply more pressure to move to darker areas.

Value bars are also good practice. Divide a rectangle into five parts, leave one end white and darken the other as far as you can. Alternate the tone of the parts between them to make different shades of gray.
