Have you ever looked at an amazing sketch or at a funny and insightful cartoon and thought, "I wish I could draw like that"?
Well, you can! Drawing takes practice, but the super-easy, step-by-step drawing tutorials listed here are a great place to start.
What will you learn how to draw? Many amateur artists believe that drawing people is difficult, but it doesn't have to be.
Some of our guides break the drawing down into its parts - hair, legs, or clothing, for example. Then, you can put together the different parts to create your own unique character.
Completing an interesting drawing may involve more than just the individual character, however. You'll need to give him or her accessories and an environment.
Maybe your character is hungry? Learn how to draw candy, pears, grapes, potatoes, apples, ice cream, and lemons.

What makes these drawing tutorials so easy?
