How to draw from imagination (with Basic perspective)


Hello ! It’s Chou-Tac,

My neighbor came home to say hello.
She’s a creative person and loves DIY for home decoration.

However, imagination drawing seams impossible for her.

She thought that Drawing is a talent that:
“We born with it” or “We do NOT born with it”.

The innate talent is a MYTHE!

She was terribly convinced that if she were not able to draw today, she would never be. It’s a pity because she never really tried drawing.

Anyone who has the belief
and the method to learn will succeed.

It is so much more simple when it’s well explained.

Because that Fake News is so persistent,
That discussion inspired me to create today’s drawing video tutorial.

Actually, it inspires me to create the whole Design Sketchbook blog! To show to you that anyone can draw their ideas from imagination!

I’ve prepared a simple tutorial for all beginners
who have difficulties to draw
a simple volume in 3D.

I show you that “Guessing” is not the proper way to draw.
Drawing the right way is about the method I show you step-by-step.

If you want to know how to use your imagination to draw, you need to study the basics of perspective first. It will help you structure your vision in 3D so you won’t draw only flat drawings anymore!

If you haven’t done yet,
I recommend you to go through
the Designer Starter Kit to train your straight lines,
and learn more about basic perspective. Make sure to claim your designer copy!

Alright, it is time to get your ballpoint pen, paper, and practice !!


PS: In a few days, I will need your help.
I am now preparing my Sketching course for Beginners to draw with a professional sketching level with confidence. I open the registration only 1 or twice a year only.

It is a step-by-step online course. And I would need your feedbacks
and telling me the obstacles you meet in a survey.

So I can know you more precisely how to help you personally. 🙂

PPS: Johnson, a VIP member of my course Sketch Like The Pros has just sent me a sketch he did from a recent sketching video I published on How to draw in perspective a Grinder. I thought it would be inspirational for you to see his progress.

    I find your site truly awesome. How do I become a member and start design sketching with your course? I am unemployed and have no money to pay for a design course. Thanks very much. Kenneth
