Easy & fun drawing tutorials for the whole family.
My-How-to-Draw.com is a place where you can find fun drawing tutorials to follow in a step-by-step manner without all the technical stuff. We are not here to become the next Picasso, but rather to enjoy ourselves in creating some simple (and some not-so-simple) drawings of all our favorite characters and themes.
My name is Manny and I began this site back in 2010 after spending lots of quality time drawing with my first child and have continued spending lots more quality time drawing since then having had the arrival of another two little ones. I try to add and update as often as possible, I take requests and do my best to get through all of them although I do have to give some extra emphasis on the more popular requests.
You will find several hundred tutorials including the original series which were created using images in a step-by-step layout with each image showing the following strokes. The newest tutorials have been created in video format using special software that allows me to clearly show each pen stroke at a slow pace which makes it easier to follow. It is best to pause the video after each stroke and continue again after catching up.
Depending on your level of skill and the level of difficulty of the tutorial you choose, you may or may not get your drawing looking exactly like mine. This is okay! I say this because it is easy to get disheartened when a drawing doesn't look like the original but this applies more to art students and not to you and me.
I prefer to encourage you to draw regardless of how good or bad you think you are and with this mindset you will not get disheartened and guess what?… you will actually see that you will improve over time because practice adds to your experience and the more experience you gain the better you will become.
So, now that we have cleared that up and you are ready to draw, start flicking through the pages and find your favorites. Sign up for the newsletter too so you can keep up-to-date and receive some encouraging tips via email.
