Drawing is a fantastic habit that can help you relax, destress, and release your creativity. To give you some inspiration and help you develop your drawing skills, I am creating a new drawing challenge for you!
1. The Monthly Drawing Challenge
If you’re looking to learn how to draw, you’ve come to the right place. Every month, for one year, I will release a new drawing tutorial to get your creative juices flowing. I’ll cover exciting topics and easy drawing ideas like facial features, animals, people, flowers, and much more.
2. What’s in it For You?
You can take part in this drawing challenge to increase your skills and have some fun. I’ll use my years of experience as an artist and graphic designer to walk you, step by step, through the skills you’ll need to create amazing drawings. From line drawings to shading to how to draw complicated subjects, as well as simple objects like book drawing, we’ll cover it all. I’ll also show you how to color with colored pencils. (Check my recommendations below for the best colored pencils and artist tools to stock up on!)
Here are some of my own drawings from my sketchbook, to give you a taster for what is to come.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or a more experienced artist, I’d love for you to take part in this challenge. You’ll find a new drawing tutorial every week to have a go at. When you’ve finished, share it with us – we’d love to see what you’ve created!
