Never Drawn Before

The exercises on this page are for someone who wants to learn how to make 2D art but has never done it before.  Some of these exercises might seem like they do not need any explanation, however, with all the teaching we have done, it’s amazing how many people just do not know these things at all.  I would venture to say that many working professionals might not know this information and could use a little of it in their own way of working.  We hope you find these helpful.

Exercise 1 – Holding the Pencil and the Many Variations

This exercise covers the basics on holding the pencil, the various approaches and the kind of marks they might make (this image is not one of them).  This might seem like a laughable topic but you would be surprised how much of this information goes unexplained.
