I really appreciate your work and your involvement in this project. Thanks!” 
Elisa, France  

Hey, thanks a lot for giving me the knowledge of basics and perspective.
From your lessons now I can make perfect circles and ellipses
My straight lines and my hatching also improved.

Thanks for guiding me. 

“It’s very helpful. It helped me correcting my straight lines.
Catarina, Portugal

We always have to review the basics, and I really appreciated your technics!”
Nicolas, France

“It´s really helpful. 
It is what it is, a great starter kit.
Very well explained and entertaining.”
Xicotencati, Mexico

“First of all, amazing insight into some of the fundamentals of sketching
I have been drawing for a long time now but not always in the right manner. 
Your guide will definitely remind me to keep the healthy habit :)”
Rudy, India

It made me think about things I hadn’t thought about previously.
I hadn’t even realized how basic a skill it is to draw a straight line
and how you could become better at it.

Practicing makes such a big difference.

And I found it easy to read and absorb.
Having each section broken into such small pieces meant that I didn’t feel overwhelmed.

I feel confident to try the exercises.
And I WANT to do them – instead of just staring at a blank white piece of paper :-D” 
Jane, Ireland

“I must say this is a Well-thought-out guide,
and it is a great tool for beginners and even for artists
who have been at it for a while,
but just need help with drawing like an architect or draftsman. 

Great book. Keep up the great work!!”

“I would like to thank you for the book that you have made the effort to send me, it had really helped me fix my sketching issues.
It had actually helped with me conveying my ideas to my professor and fellow architecture students.
They even asked me how I learned these techniques,
so I recommended your page and they are obliged to subscribe to it! 😀  

Thanks from us to you :)” 
Nano and his friends from architecture class from Philippines

“It’s a very essential thing every designer should have I found it extremely helpful and informative” 
Nischchal, India

“Really like it Nicely laid out although its a really nice start I wish it had gone deeper. It would have been a great tool for my kids and some of their friends that I give lessons to.”

“I think its amazing, it helps
 me to understand and know how I have to do the essential parts of a sketch” 
German, Colombia

“It’s very helpful for a beginner and for someone who is willing to learn the basics again in order to improve on his/current skill-set. It’s very reader/user-friendly.

The topics were discussed in a very simple manner and that helped. Complicated guides or tutorials usually confuse or even intimidate the readers.”
Migo, Philippines

  • Hey, I really appreciate it that you’re able to provide beginners a free guide but I still haven’t received mine. I am not sure what to do.

  • Hi Chou-Tac Chung, im so happy to find you again,my major is Industrial Design but im not good in this major, i want to learn from you to be better from past, thank you so much for your help.

    • My pleasure Zahra.
      I am always happy to help, and glad you wanna improve.

      I learned something:
      “Your past results do not equal your future results.”

      That’s dissociated.

      Have faith in your action today,
      and you will be able to shape your future. 🙂

      I believe it resonates with you too.

      By the way,
      you come back when I’m reopening
      the registration for my sketching course very soon.

      Stay tuned!

  • Hey,

    I still haven’t received the guide. Checked my mail thoroughly. Can you send it again?


  • hey chou-tac, thank you for pulling together and sharing all this great information!

    i just wanted to share back a small tip with you: i used to sometimes forget to sketch everyday, but then i got a daily page-a-day calendar like these —

    now every morning before work i peel away a page from the calendar and fill it with small sketches. i’ve also found that just getting started sketching on one page is great motivation to sketch some more ! 🙂

    • Hey Jon, I really like your TIP! :))

      I hope you are keeping all of them in a box! Would be great to see them as a collection of the year. If you do, please send me a picture of your work! 😀

  • First off i want to say thank you because my mind works exactly like yours. Also this is the only guide thats actually been helpful to me, (i even tried lynda). Best of all yours is free!

    – I finished the guide pretty quickly, i would love to sign up for the waitlist of your one on one class. Seriously take my money because i haven’t learned like that in a long time.

    • Hey Collin,

      Thank you for your kind words. It’s great to know the guide is giving you a lot of values.

      Sure, I will let you know about the next 1-to-1 registration opening! It’s closed for the moment, but I do my best to reopen soon! 🙂

  • Hey Sir Chou, I am a Lebanese self taught artist I signed for your guid but i did not receive anything… Hope ill get them soon Cheers 😀

  • Hi! it was very helpful! Do you have similar guides for wacom users as well(e.g. sketchbook)? Thanks!

  • Hey Chou-Tac,

    Fantastic guide! I love the style and it’s really rounding off the fundamentals for me. Only thing, where do you recommend I go next to continue developing? The guide was great but I really want to keep going and continue learning to draw, but the guide stops very quickly. Do you have any more guides that build on the next step or can you recommend any books or other guides so I can continue to develop?

    Thank you!


    • Hello Ryan,
      Hello Ryan,

      I am glad that the guides was helpful.

      I give online courses. It’s a 7-month program where I can give you 1 to 1 feedback if you want to.
      The course is now ongoing so the registration is closed for the moment. If you are interested let me know, I can add you in the waiting list.

      You can have a look at this book I like. Sketching the Basics. It gives you good fundamentals of design sketching :).

      Hope it helps !

      • Hi Chou-Tac,

        If you could add me to the waiting list that would be amazing thank you! Do you know a rough date when the course will be re-starting? Thank you for the recommendation! I will be ordering a copy later.

        Thanks for all your help, and in the meantime I will keep practicing my lines, circles and boxes!!



        • Alrighty Ryan!

          About the date, I haven’t decided yet. I wonder if I should reopen before or after summer holidays. Do you have any preference yourself ?

          • Honestly, as soon as you have the time/availability. I loved the start guide and it’s got me back into sketching but would love to keep progressing. I bought a copy of sketching the basics. Haven’t had a chance to go through it yet but hopefully going to get a chance to sit down and work through it soon, thanks for the recommendation!

  • Hi Chou-Tac!

    I really loved you method. I’ve drawn by my “own perspective” shyly without confidence. It’s so nice the way that you explain! I’ve done many improvements on my sketchs! Thank you!

  • Waiting for online course sir..strter Kit helped me to pass my apitude test for university entrance..its awesome

  • Yo Chou-Tac my boi,

  • Hey Chou-Tac,

    I received guides 3 and 4, but I’ve checked my email for the 1st two, and it seems like they haven’t arrived yet. Would you mind sending them again to me? Thanks! Your videos have been helpful so far.



  • hi chou tac! Its great to know that there are people like you really helping out for beginners like us! I got directed to one of your videos for making drawing more realistic and iI found it very helpful! I thought I’d never be able to draw because my symmetry is never good. I am wondering does this geo
    metry applies to character design as well? i really love to make characters but people always say my drawings are flat…
