You don’t need an artistic talent to be able to draw.
I would like to introduce a technique that makes use of simple shapes. This drawing style is so easy to do as you just need to put all shapes together in a meaningful way to form a concept.
I use GIMP for all my sketching, but you can also use Photoshop. Of course, any image editor or graphics software can do the job. I just recommend GIMP because it’s free. You can download a free copy of it from the GIMP official website.
Now if you are ready, here are the five samples.
Father and Son
If you need to convey the meaning of fatherly love, a simple drawing will do. Who said you need to draw like a pro?
The Mother and The Child
Been trying to draw a mother and child without success? Try circles.
The Running Monsters
This drawing is elementary and easy to follow. Why don’t you fire up your image software and create one for yourself?
I know. You can do a stick figure. But how about putting some volume into your drawing?
The Dancing Monsters
With this drawing, I just use irregular oblong and a pentagon for the bodies. You can see that I make use of circles for their eyes. I used spiral lines for the ears. Nothing is complex. The arms, hands, legs, and feet are reflections of simplicity. You can do the same thing.
For Bloggers Who Want to Draw but Cannot, Here’s My Two Cents
Graphic artist and illustrators nowadays are so expensive. If you are blogging on a limited budget, why not put illustrations into your own hands. You can do it. You just need to believe.
