How to draw Straight lines with confidence as a Designer/ The 4 exercises

Hello guys !

Many beginners wonder how to get started in design sketching.

You may tend to have clumsy sketches no matter how much effort you put in. A good way to improve from start is to work on your quality of lines.

So you will gain confidence using the basic movement of sketching. And get ready to go further such as perspective for example.

If you can master this, it will help you sketch so much faster, and get more precision daily. You will see progress appear earlier and enjoy drawing more as well.

To master this movement you will need to practice and do plenty of repetition. (Like the movie Karate Kid). Today, I still personnaly like to draw straight lines as a good warm up before a sketching session. It helps to warm up your hand muscle and start with good motivation ! : )

let’s go on the video where I give you 4 exercises to practice daily ! It is gonna be fun 🙂



After this tutorial, I recommend you to train on the CUBE MANIA CHALLENGE :
