What would you like to draw?A person? Buildings? Food? Animals?If you can’t think of anything, try drawing about something you love.Many people have been inspired to start drawing by their favorite manga or game characters.It is also a good idea to think about the purpose of painting.For example, for a New Year’s card, you can draw a lion dance or a portrait of the recipient for a letter.Even if it is just a letter or announcement, a simple picture can make it more colorful, friendly and eye-catching.Once you’ve decided, get to drawing！
The world is full of tools for painting. If you want to start drawing quickly, if you want to start drawing quickly, pencils are the way to go. Everyone’s house will have them, and they are easy to draw with. Everyone’s house will have them, and they are easy to draw with.
However, black and white seems tasteless. If you draw a line with a pencil, add some color. Colored pencils or Copics are recommended. Copics have a total of 358 colors, which is probably the largest number of markers available in Japan. Copics are specially designed for drawing and can draw and color more beautifully than other marker pens. It is also easier than colored pencils for first-time users to paint. Copics are also more fun than colored pencils because the texture changes depending on the drawing material.
However, Copics are a bit expensive. It is best to collect them without overdoing it.
Recently, digital machines for drawing pictures have been developed.
There are two types: the type that writes directly on the display and the type that writes on the board and can draw on the computer.The display type is more like paper but is more expensive.The board type gives you a different feeling because you are looking at the PC screen, but you can draw in a comfortable position and the price is relatively low.Recently, more and more people are using smart phones and iPads to draw. These devices can also be used for other purposes and have a very high-cost performance.
In addition to this equipment, you will also need drawing software. some of which are included with the devices and some of which are free.But I would recommend Clip Studio. This software is paid, but since it is the most popular, you can get a lot of information and support on the Internet.
Once you have decided on the means of drawing and are ready to start, start drawing.Even if you can’t draw without looking, it’s fun to draw while looking at something, or to copy an existing character or illustration.The most important thing is to have fun, not to be technical！ Try out new drawing methods, tools, compositions, and models.One of the best things about drawing is that you can easily try out new techniques.Try a lot, make a lot of mistakes, and try to find the expression you like.
Being able to draw, even if it is simple, can be useful and enjoyable in a few moments.I hope you all have a wonderful drawing life.
