Artist Tips

While it’s a lot of fun to follow a drawing tutorial, the real magic happens when you add your own creativity. After you’ve drawn each of the characters in the tutorials, try redrawing them again. This time, however, add in a few personal flourishes. For instance, you can draw a different hat on an elf. Alternatively, change the facial expression on Santa Claus. Or perhaps you can draw a few props to expand the scene. For example, draw a sleigh next to Santa Claus, a gingerbread house next to Mrs. Claus, or a pile of toys next to the elves. In this manner, your drawing will quickly take on an original life of its own, with you as the proud creator!

Finally, a few thoughts on artist’s tools. When drawing, I like to use 2B or HB pencils, especially from the brand Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth Toison D’Or 1900. For quick sketches, any paper will do really. For finished drawings, however, I strongly recommend Strathmore Bristol board. When inking your illustration, you can’t go wrong with Speedball India ink and a classic nib. My personal nib of choice is a Spitzfeder 111 extrafein.
