Getting Started

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have a dashed line running through the center of each step, both in the horizontal and vertical direction. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. For instance, as seen in Step 1 below, this easy dragon body starts with a V shape above the center horizontal line, and to the left of the center vertical line. The rest of the mouth and nose then starts to take place around it. Drawing skills have a lot to do with getting the right size and placement of lines on a sheet of paper, so having some visual reference points to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate. Before drawing students need to simply fold the paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.

    • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
    • Pencils. Don’t waste your money on the cheapest brand. These make nice dark lines.
    • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a nice dark black color.
    • Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is made from beeswax, not petroleum by-products.
