    Overall great post, to contribute there are my thoughts that made my life easier when I was beginning drawing.

    When I was starting 3 years ago from literally 0 skill and it was harder than you can expect. All over the web people were saying that I need only a pencil, paper, and time to start. Well, that’s true however not for everybody. Some people like me need more help at the beginning, with just a pencil they quickly drop hobby without even trying. I also gave up a couple of times.

    I can say you that nothing can replace a good teacher. Private lessons were too expensive for me so I purchased an online video course created by an experienced teacher. That was game-changing for me. The course has shown me the proper way to start and develop my skills. It still required a lot of work, the course gave me motivation and a strong boost in skill.
    If you are like me struggling with beginnings I strongly recommend online courses.
    One I learned from is https://drawing-session.com

    What I like in this course is that each lesson builds on the previous so you are never thrown into the deep. Each class has its concept or technique that you need to master, for example, in the second class you learn how to spot the different tonal values. In this class, the instructor uses different styrofoam objects to show you the light affects the tonal values. The way he explains it makes it so easy to understand, like theory being explained in a practical way.

    One more tip from me
    You won’t see results in a week. With a skill like drawing progress is very gradual. You will start seeing results after at least a month of hard work. Following courses or attending private lessons might speed up the process.
    Keep in mind that everything depends on you. Good luck.
