30 Cool & Easy Things to Draw to Get Better at Art

Every artists begins by learning how to draw simple lines, and then bringing those lines together to form an image or picture.

Here are some easy and cool things to draw if you are looking to help sharpen your artist eye and get better at drawing.

Drawing Tips for Beginners

When you first start learning how to draw, start out with multiple, light lines as you go and then darken the line you want to keep. 

Erase the “no-go” lines.

You don’t want to be drawing in one-go, with one bold dark line right from the beginning to end. You may get discouraged more easily by the first mistake you make.

Instead, test out different lines and create many mistakes and find the perfect line in the midst of all those other lines you have created. The number of test lines you need to make will grow less and less the more experienced you become.

Pay attention to spacing and it’s okay if your drawing doesn’t look completely like the original.

Just keep practicing and sometimes, it’s just your style that’s coming out into your art. With more practice, you will soon develop your own eye for creating art.
