One of my family members recently left the country, and luckily for me he is an artist and left behind some of his stuff. I received a whole bunch of pencils/charcoal/sketchpads/paints/canvases, the only problem is I am really bad at drawing and I've never taken the time to learn how. I've watched some tutorial videos on youtube and they've helped a bit, but I was wondering if anyone here had some tips for me? For example, is there a specific technique that I should learn to do first? I'm mainly interested in drawing with pencils on a sketchpad, not painting.
Are any of you into drawing? If so, link your deviantart if you have one so we can check it out.
Today I'll leave you with this image from Paulo Brandão which I found on a website compiling 15 images using exposure techniques. Wonderful.
