How to Draw Perfect Square (+ Common Mistakes)

Today we carry on with the 2nd video of the series of 6 – illustrating the Designer Starter Kit book (Feel free to download it and start from there. It’s free.)

How to draw a perfect square.

Some of you may wonder. What is difficult about drawing a square? Why do we need a tutorial for that?

The thing is that there are multiple ways to draw anything (even simple one), and it happened that some ways give more results than others. Keep that mindset of getting results smarter, you will gain a lot of efficiency for more complex drawings in the future.

You have a beautiful piece of art to display on your wall 😛 Just kidding.

Repeat the process one time in a while and keep track of your progression.
