ABOUT US
While your life story might share some
similarities with mine, you may find definite
commonalities that we share, especially if you
have an appreciation for art! Now, you might be
saying- Jon, how can you make such a generalized
statement, just because we share an interest in
art? Here's my story of how it all started and I
hope this does not bore you too much! After the
war, my parents had limited means and we were
quite poor as with most families in
Britain.  There were no "luxuries" like art
supplies which included drawing paper but I did
manage to scrounge charcoal sticks once in
awhile.So it started out with charcoal on
newspaperthe only thing I could make marks on at
the time.

Drawing Techniques
There are many drawing techniques to  learn. One
of the first things we need to know is how to
hold a pencil to be more effective at drawing .
The correct way to Hold your pencil or marker,
is between the Thumb and index finger supported
by the middle finger. With chalk or pastels you
would only use the thumb and middle finger. This
may seem a little awkward at first but after a
little practice you will soon see how easy this
drawing technique becomes.

Funny Drawings
Even the most beginner of artists can learn how
to create funny drawings by simply visiting this
Pencil Sketches website. Once you have created
an unusual and funny masterpiece, your drawings
can be showcased on this website for others just
like you to see. You never know where your dippy
drawings may end up or who's attention they may
catchthey could even go viral if they are zany
enough! Idiotic, out-of-this-world illustrations
can be found on sites that have been submitted by
both children and adults of all ages. Even search
the directory for theme-specific drawings that
will have you rolling on the floor laughing.

Funny Drawings
Kid-submitted drawings are some of the funniest
ones that make an appearance on your computer
screen. Because children already have vivid
imaginations, they think outside the box and even
draw images of their inner self and how they
feel. Young artists will amaze and astound you
through creative designs, colors and textures
that bring their funny pictures to life. From
cartoon characters such as Spongebob Squarepants
to superheroes like Batman and Spiderman, see
how kids from around the world interpret these
designs using their imagination and own creative
skills. Just a tipbuild up a portfolio of funny
drawings and use it daily as a springboard for
your funny sketches. Sooner or later you will
come up with something great!
Of course I am unusual do you like my outfit ?

Koi Fish Drawings
Koi fish drawings can be quite decorative in
color and pattern which are identified by their
shapes and scales. Here is a collection of  koi
drawings of varying shapes and sizes from short,
squat, and downright ugly. Hey, but some of them
are quite beautiful with their markings and
color. Men who go for tattoos seem to like the
dragon-faced Japanese koi because they can look a
bit ferocious as it validates a man's
masculinity. The koi is a symbol for many things
from the good things in life to things like "He's
as slippery as a Koi" but most symbols are
related to virtues that the Japanese honor. As a
sidebar, the koi originated in China, not
Japan.

Koi Fish Drawings
There is a large variety of koithere's the
Longfin Carp, Dragon Koi, Butterfly Koi, Gosanke
(the most popular) and hundreds more, if not
thousands. Interbreeding is prevalent to get
dazzling red and white markings which are the
most popular. This is now an art form with fierce
competition at the Annual International Koi
shows. I attended one in Johannesburg a few years
ago and I was blown away with the enormous
variety of colors.

Drawing Lessons
Basics of Drawing
There are plenty of free online drawing lessons
which were not available before the internet --
some of these are quite good with the webmaster
being a real artistic pro where you can learn a
lot. It is easy enough to search online for 
lessons on drawing where you'll find an abundance
but look for "Reviews" where you can get a
students' feedback which is usually truthful or
you could check the testimonials. There is one
I've recommended on this site as I've done an
evaluation from student's feedback and their
drawings. Some of them are very good after
only several weeks of study.

Drawing Lessons
Basics of Drawing
Also a good place to look is on YouTube where you
can see real pros demonstrating how to draw in
simple steps. They usually have a link back to
their sites either in the tags or below the clip.
Besides YouTube, there are other "How-To" video
sites like Vimeo, Metacafe, Veoh and Ustream,
plus many others. When watching "How-To" videos
on drawing, you have the advantage of stopping it
anywhere, you can playback or rewind it, so it is
a good place to start. You can learn a lot this
way in a short space of time.

Christmas Drawings
Creative Family Decorations 
Easy Christmas Drawings for family and kids to
share! There will be lots of Christmas
drawings here you can copy or print to get you
into the Christmas spirit. Can you draw? Okay,
follow along with me here and we'll do some
sketching of Santa, a Christmas tree, perhaps
some holly, a stick or two of candy cane, throw
in a few bells, candles and we must not forget
the candles which adds a little ambiance, right?
Here is an image of dear Santa, notice he has a
round face but most of it is covered with a white
beard. If you draw a circle and place two lines
for the position of his eyes, then draw a line
halfway between the marks you've drawn for his
eyes which will then be the bottom of his nose.
And right underneath that is his wonderful and
ticklish mustache!

Christmas Drawings
Creative Family Decorations 
Are you getting the Christmas spirit yet? Okay,
what about this next Christmas drawing. This is
a very simple drawing of Santa riding a candy
cane. Draw the cane first without the stripes.
Then Santa's head which is very cartoonishso
copy it pretty much the same. Then draw in the
rest of him and finally the stripes on the
candy. You can easily use this on your hand-made
Christmas cards or any of these Christmas
drawings here.

Christmas Drawings
Next come the Christmas Bells and these will be
fun things to draw but use your own decorative
elements between the lines which can really be
anythingtry little Christmas balls, squiggly
lines, even little Christmas stockings. See the
ribbons and holly? Just copy them in. And you can
also make nice cards using these bellsso copy to
your heart's content. So let's be really
adventurous with two people under the
mistletoe, this should be great for someone you
love. It is far more complex than the previous
drawings so my suggestion is to print a copy and
trace over the outlines.

To the right here are the two lovers which is a
lot simpler to draw than the previous one. Below
left the drawing is made up of circles for the
face and mouth, a few snowflakes which you should
find easy to draw with simple mittens holding a
carol book. This could be quite a decorative
Christmas card if you use lots of bright colors
against a black sky. There are more drawings
below to help you get started with your Christmas
projects. Use them freely and send them to your
dearest friends and family.

Drawings
Drawing is a vast subject and takes years or even
decades to get to grips withthat is if you have
the ambition to become a master of this craft. Do
you have a favorite artist you like and
admire? Go back to his or her earliest works and
come forward in time and notice the change as the
work of art becomes more masterful. Even those
artists like Vincent van Gogh who had a short
life indeedyou'll notice the rapid changes in
style and vigor.
It does take a lot of skill to observe the form
accurately and transpose those lines into a great
work of art.
19
Elements of Drawings
Knowing the elements of drawing, even if you have
said numerous times "I can't draw a straight
line!" will no longer be a challenge to
you.  This will be the first time you will
really get some great enjoyment especially when
you see your first masterpiece come off the
drawing board. Nope, you will not be "straight
line challenged" again when you learn how
competent you have become.

said numerous times "I can't draw a straight
line!" will no longer be a challenge to you.

Elements of Drawings
  • The Dot Family the difference here between the
    dot and the circle the dot is filled in with
    color whereas the circle is an outline only. A
    dot can be any size, very large or just a speck.
  • The Circle Family this is the same shape and
    size of the dot.
  • The Straight Line Family Don't think of the line
    as most do of being thin. A line can be thick,
    squat, or a series of straight line as in the
    example above.
  • The Curved Line similar to the line family only
    it is bent or curved. See these curved lines as
    individual line - or as clumped lines.
  • The Angle Line Family these are two straight
    lines joining together at some point. These angle
    lines are quite common you will notice in many
    drawings.

Sketches of Flowers
Sketches of flowers drawn realistically has
always been a favorite among famous and
not-so-famous artists throughout history. Vincent
van Gogh did not paint his "Sunflowers"
realistically at all but they certainly had
impact for originality. Being sensitive to all
the subtle nuances in sketching flowers takes
years of experience.  Being sensitive to all the
subtle nuances in sketching flowers takes years
of experience. Sorry folks, there are no
shortcuts when it comes to creating flowers with
a pencil or pen that looks like the real thing.
If you can almost smell the fragrance oozing from
the soft gossamer-like petals, you know the
artist has created something special.
22
Aztec Art Drawing
Aztec Art Drawings were made to honor Aztec gods
and battles, but also to tell mythical stories
and to mark everyday happenings in the lives of
these complex people. To the Aztecs, art was far
more than a fun, casual outlet for their design
skills. It stood as a symbol of their
culture. Aztec Art Drawings were made to honor
Aztec gods and battles, but also to tell mythical
stories and to mark everyday happenings in the
lives of these complex people. Draw the body as
big and muscular as you like you might even use
a poster of your favorite wrestler or action star
as a model! And all clothes for your subject
should be bright and ornamental think long,
flowing robes, jewelry and headpieces, colored
any way you like. Unlike other, more traditional
types of art, exaggeration is encouraged in Aztec
drawings.
23
Abstract Drawings
Drawings can be an absolute ball of
creativeness and more akin to doodling or even
scribbling. If you are a beginner and drawing or
painting, this is the place to start. Let's look
at how nature can help us get our abstract ideas
flowing Here is an image of some trees but the
image is upside down so you can't actually "see"
it is a tree. In the second image, it has been
put through a Photoshop poster filter which
reduces all the values from about 10 to 4 so
you can only see 4 values (value meaning the
lightness or darkness of a color or tone.)
24
Celebrity Drawings
Celebrity drawings have taken a different level
among the art lovers. Drawing is not just
restricted to scenery, cartoons or idols. Drawing
is such an art that lets every person show their
inner talent. Your hands can do wonders and who
knows that one day you will be praised as the
second Leonardo Da Vinci! When it comes to
drawing the celebrities, who will be your first
priority? A renowned singer or a renowned actor? 
Cartoonish celebs add a lot of humour To our lives
So, you love drawing and your masters have
applauded your talent. How about producing a
drawing that will not only roll you down the
floor, but also helps others to recognize you as
a humorous artist!
25
Precious Moments Drawings
If you collect figurines, you can expand your
hobby by creating Precious Moments drawings. This
is only one of a thousand reasons to start
drawing. Whether you want to learn a new skill,
unleash your creativity or draw specific objects,
you can create dazzling sketches that are fit to
hang on walls.  This is a great activity for kids
and teens and can even lead to a career in this
wonderful world of drawing. Everyone already has
some drawing experience. Whether you are taking
classes in high school, making Precious Moments
drawings or just doodling in your free time, you
are ready to take the next step to becoming an
artist.
Learning the basic techniques and practicing are
all you need to do to start this exciting
experience. Pencil drawings are a great way to
begin because you can get used to sketching and
erase any mistakes like they were never there.
26
Dragons Drawings
  • Drawings of Dragons is of course, an art, but
    that doesnt mean that it cant be taught. There
    are many ways to learn to draw, and a few
    different techniques that you can use to start
    you in the right direction.
  • Start Here
  • When you start to draw, you need to begin with a
    frame, this will be the guidelines that you will
    use to pad out the drawing.
  • Next is the head
  •  After you have drawn the basic lines, you can
    concentrate on filling out your drawing. Use the
    guide that you have already drawn to help you
    place the head in the right way and use it as the
    base for the head.
  • The body Once you have the head drawn, progress
    along the neck and back. This will give you a
    natural progression and help you to make the look
    of the dragon flow. 
  • Finishing touches Once you have drawn the whole
    dragon, you can add any detail that you want such
    as muscle definition, scales, veins etc. This is
    the part that you can get really creative, and
    you can also add color at this point as well.

Fantasy Sketches
Fantasy sketches are a great way to tap into your
imagination and therefore without limitations on
you! When drawing fantasy creatures imagine the
world they inhabit. What role do they play in
their world? This will help create the characters
in your fantasy sketches but first you have to
create it in your mind! Fantasy sketches are a

Cartoon Faces
Do you like to doodle when you are talking on the
phone or draw cartoon faces on your memo pad
during boring business meetings at work?  You are
not alone.  Drawing cartoons is a fun way to pass
the time.  It develops your creativity and
imagination while providing some comical
entertainment for your friends and family. The
Basic Shapes Cartoon Heads, Funny Eyes, The Silly
Nose , The Bulbous Ears You can easily
manipulate your facial expressions by focusing on
three key components  the mouth, the eyelids and
the eyebrows.  Leave the other traits the same
and practice changing these three areas only.
Have fun drawing!
29
Cartoon Characters
Cartoon characters can be fun to draw...if you're
in the right mood, feelin' good and passionate
about drawing cartoons, then...now is the chance!
The Hombre here sure aint handsome! So if you can
just loosen up a bit, grab a pencil, think about
darling Grandma as she is quite a character to
draw, then start drawing. I bet she will be
delighted with the results - even if you have
given her the ugliest bulbous nose! Chances are
you've read and watched your fair share of
cartoons so show grandma's hooked nose or
whatever shape it is, her goose neck - and
draw! Exaggerate whatever you think is cool but
nothing 'orrible eh! This will shine through as
you begin to draw your own. Cartoons are
aboutcharacter rather than trying to create a
realistic drawing.
30
Pencil Sketches
Pencil sketches are always a delight to see if
they are created with passion. Do they make an
original statement about something we've never
envisioned or seen before? If so, it must be a
great sketch! You can see instantly if the pencil
sketch has been drawn by an artist who knows
line, value and texture and reveals an effortless
approach to drawing. Many of the drawings below
show this style and most drawings with a boldly
stated line. Sketches do not have to be
"polished" as if they are for gallery
display have a look at Rembrandt's rough
sketches or Picasso or the superb Matisse
drawings. Many of these were "studies" for
further exploration of the human form.

you need to add are the four legs and floppy
ears. Try it!

Flowers Becomes a Breeze once you have mastered
the technique! Try drawing with pen and ink,
start off with ball pen then go and get a pen
with a nib - and don't forget the black ink.0
32
How To Draw
My advice would be for a beginner to purchase a
few quality pencils and a sketch pad. A ring
bound sketchpad about 9 inches by 12 inches to
keep all your drawings in one place and they will
stay in chronological order (youll date each
page). This way you can spot your progress over
the weeks and months ahead.
Get to know your pencils well, how they feel in
your hand, the softness of the 2B to 6B and the
HB which you will use a lot. Youll need an HB
for roughly drawing out your guidelines (which
can be erased later) to the softer pencil and
their characteristics. Please DO NOT use a pencil
that has been sharpened down to an inch long. You
cant possibly get an nice curve or energetic
line with a stubby pencil! See cartoon above for
stubby pencil.
33
Easy How To Draw
Art is an inward expression to translate feeling
and emotions into color, texture and shapes. For
many artists, this freedom of expression has a
cathartic quality to spill out what has been
bottled up inside them and translate those
complicated emotions into a thing of beauty to
look at. The essence of art is to communicate
thoughts and ideas from life drawing reality to
thought provoking abstracts. The eye of the
artist is quick to pick up project topics to move
and affect the viewing audience. Some pieces of
art will make you laugh, cry or cause you to
reflect inwardly on a social issue. Since there
is no right or wrong when it comes to drawing,
it's important to be yourself and let your
imagination run wild.
34
Nature Sketches
Nature, in the broadest
art world sense, is all things Natural 
Nature sketches in all its beauty is a job well
done when you start with a few basic drawing
principles to help you out. Whether you opt for
a forest scene, the beach, a desert landscape or
want to capture the essence of your garden at
home, following a few simple rules to keep your
nature sketches in balance will cut the chaos and
confusion when getting started.
35
Flower Sketches
There is a large variety to choose from when
drawing flower sketches and, if you follow along
with these basics, you'll get good results. The
easiest flower to draw will be any of the five
petal flowers like the daisy or cosmos there
are hundreds of them to choose from. I have drawn
a few simple illustrations on this page to show
you an easy way to get an effective flower
sketch. Notice that in most flowers (not all)
that the petals emanate from a center point and
that would be the stamen. At the base of the
stamen you'll find the stem. You need to know
this in order to draw it you'll find it in all
flowers.
36
Angel Drawings
Angel drawings throughout the ages have evolved
with artistic cultural changesand new vision as
to the way we envision these creatures. Whether
you believe they exist or not doesn't really
matter, what does matter is that there are no
genuine models for angels. The drawing of an
angels usually takes a homogenous theme to
indicate the image is indeed that of an
angel, rather than a creature from Greek or Roman
mythology. Long flowing hair, oversized majestic
wings, tranquil faces and loose-fitting garments
will get your point across in drawing angels.
However, since there is no legitimate model to
craft the image after, it doesn't hurt to take a
few liberties when creating your own unique angel.
37
Drawing Gallery
Here is your pencil drawing gallery showing a
variety of styles on nearly all subjects your can
thinkyou'll find lots on the human
figure, faces, animals, Gothic, fantasy, Anime
with all its offshoots and plenty more.
Many of these sketcheswhich will be added to
frequently, have been culled from my diaries
(sketchbooks) dating back to the year dot.
The art of drawing came about because it was
originally intended for preliminary sketches to
be transposed into other mediausually oil
painting. These old masters gave us an insight
into the artists search for forms, ideas and
designs.
