120+ Cool Drawing Ideas For Your Sketchbook

Drawing in your sketchbook is fun, relaxing, and did I mention fun?

It’s always crucial to study the fundamentals and practice your drawing skills like proportions, perspective, value, and composition.

Sometimes though, you just wanna draw. And it’s easy to get into a sketchbook rut where you want to draw but you’re fresh out of ideas(it’s the worst!)

So here are over 120 ideas for those days when you’re looking around like “What the heck do I draw?”

Dig some shoes out of your closet and set up a little still life , or draw the ones on your feet (or someone else’s feet!)

2. Cats & dogs

If you have a furry helper at home, draw them!

If you don’t then just do a quick image search on Google or Pinterest to find a fuzzy friend to draw.

Cat drawings illustrations

3. Your smartphone

Come on, you always have this on you. Pull it out, lay it down, and start drawing.

4. Cup of coffee

Drawing is a great activity to couple with your morning coffee.

Whether it’s black coffee in an old mug or a fancy latte, this is one you should definitely try.

5. Houseplants

Do you have any houseplants around?

Draw their portrait and make ‘em look pretty.

If not, hop on Google to find a picture of a plant you’d love to have in your house.

6. A fun pattern

Start drawing swirls, dots, stripes, zigzags, or whatever you want to create a fun pattern.

Google “zentangling” to get inspiration. (Bonus: This is super relaxing and meditative.)

A globe on a stand is great practice for practicing proportions and symmetry.

You might even improve your geography skills at the same time!

Illustration of globe

Pretty much all artists have a collection of these laying around so make them pull double duty!

Dump out your pencils and start sketching.

Draw that pile of clothes on your floor (pretty sure you have one).

Or draw clothes on hangers, that’s fun.

For an added challenge try drawing clothes on a person or mannequin, but ONLY the clothes.

10. Bananas & apples

Set up a little still life with some fruit from your kitchen. Then enjoy a healthy snack when you’re done.

Illustration of apples and fruits

11. Kitchen utensils

While you’re in the kitchen: grab some silverware or cooking utensils, dump them on the table, and draw them where they fall.

You probably sit on your couch all the time. But have you ever really looked at it?

Get some practice at drawing soft material and gain a new appreciation for your favorite piece of furniture.

13. Headphones

Sketching knots and wires can be tons of fun!

Draw your headphones arranged neatly or in a tangled mess. Although come on, they’re a mess and you know it.

Drawing of headphones

14. Your feet

With or without shoes, feet are an important part of figure drawing.

Put your sketchbook in your lap, look down, and start drawing. Try with bare feet, socks, whatever.

15. Your hands

Now these are always available!

Pose one hand and draw it with the other, or try drawing your dominant hand with your non-dominant one. Or just look up some references and practice drawing hands that way.

Come to think of it, yeah that 2nd option’s gonna be way easier.

Books are surprisingly versatile subjects for artists.

Draw them stacked, open, sprawled on the floor, resting on a shelf, in a box or with a fox .

17. Trees and bushes

If you need a break outside find a shady spot and draw any trees or foliage you see.

You can also do this from a window or just draw from a photograph if the weather isn’t ideal.

18. Pillows

If you want practice time but just don’t want to get out of bed, well here’s your solution.

Practice drawing cloth, folds, and soft material without having to leave your comforter’s warmth.

19. Superheroes

Flip open a comic book and copy your favorite illustrations .

Draw a photorealistic rendering of your favorite Marvel characters, or invent your own superhero in your own style.

20. School desks

Waiting for a class to begin? Bored with the class you’re in?

Pass the time by drawing some desks. Just don’t get caught!

21. Balloons

Balloons are great practice in shapes, lighting, and shading smooth textures.

Find a photograph or use this as an excuse to buy yourself some balloons.

22. Lightbulb

Draw a real one on its own or in a light fixture, or draw a cartoony light bulb to spark your inspiration.

Drawing of a lightbulb

Don’t just watch TV; draw it!

Sketch your fancy flat screen or go for an old-fashioned set with rabbit ears.

24. Cartoon characters

Draw your favorite cartoon or comic book characters, or make up some of your own.

This one should be yabba dabba delightful.

25. Yarn ball

Yarn is a crazy texture. You’ll get a lot of practice here with lines and form.

Pro-tip : Don’t combine this with the “draw a cat” prompt. For obvious reasons.

26. Charger

If you’re craving more after drawing your smartphone, draw the charger!

If you feel really wild draw them both together.

27. Mouse & keyboard

Here’s a fun exercise in linework, shading, and perspective.

Challenge yourself to draw your mouse and keyboard, not just any random mouse and keyboard. Notice what makes it unique.

28. Glasses

Pose your sunglasses or regular glasses and start drawing.

You can have a lot of fun drawing clear or tinted plastic. Or some Where’s Waldo spectacles.

Drawing of glasses

29. Your bed

Try this for a crash course in drawing fabric folds.

But really this is more challenging than it sounds, especially if you don’t make your bed!

30. Staircase

Here’s an amazing exercise in line and perspective work.

Draw stairs from different angles to play with different perspectives. Also try to get the depth just right: it’s tricky but extremely valuable for all artists.

31. The trash

You’d be surprised how many interesting shapes you can find in the garbage.

Draw a dumpster or your kitchen garbage can, or even trash on the street. Then take a nice big inhale to get those “juices” flowing… or just throw it away. Litter ain’t cool.

32. Jewelry

Go through your jewelry box or draw a piece of jewelry on someone else.

See if you can capture the texture and sparkle.

33. Your idea of Heaven (or Hell)

Get creative here!

Make this a whole scene or a series of smaller doodles that encapsulate your idea of heaven or hell.

Or for you married folks maybe it’s better to imagine dinner at the in-laws house. Every night, forever.

34. A silly face

Let loosey and get goosey. Go for realistic portraits, cartoon expressions, or something in between.

It’s all fair game when the end goal is to be a goofball.

Drawing of a silly girl face

35. Paper towels

They seem mundane and utilitarian, but even the most humble objects make great drawing practice.

You’d be surprised how interesting paper towels can be when you try to draw them. Sounds like sarcasm but worth a try right?

36. Notebook

Open, closed, spiral bound, try all the possibilities.

Play with different angles to practice perspective and maybe try drawing one of your other sketchbooks .

37. Bar of soap

Really get into the texture here.

Maybe add some soap bubbles and puddles for fun.

Drawing a bar of soap

38. Shampoo

After you draw soap, get out a shampoo bottle and throw that into the mix.

Or squirt some on the counter just for the fun of drawing a shiny blob of stuff. I don’t know, it’s your sketchbook.

39. A skull

Skulls are super spooky and super fun to draw .

Also they’re genuinely good practice for portrait work and for studying anatomy in general.

If you have one hanging around, arrange it in a still life or draw it on its own. Or just find a photo of a weird animal skull to draw.

40. Skyscrapers

Draw these on blank or grid paper, or draw them wiggly on purpose!

Put your own spin on this and play with line and perspective work.

41. Game controllers

This is extra fun if you have a collection of different video game consoles.

Practice drawing proportions and how light reflects off different plastic materials. Tons of variety here with the shape of joysticks and buttons.

PlayStation 4 controller drawing

Because why not?

If you happen to have a gnome laying around, perfect! If not, Google image search has you covered.

Also I’ve heard you might check somewhere over your garden wall.

Colored pencil drawing of gnome

43. Candy & junk food

If the fruit prompt didn’t do it for you, try this sweet alternative.

Draw the actual food or the package it comes in. Or both. Either way, you learn something!

44. Water bottle

Sketch your bottle, and don’t forget the shadows.

This is a great prompt for lighting practice and working around shapes.

And then, you know, drink some water. All this drawing can make you thirsty.

Draw birds you see in your neighborhood and flying around the local park.

Or do an image search for the most exotic bird you can find. This is one of the best prompts to go from easy to hard with so much to pick from.

Pencil drawings of birds

46. Christmas stuff

Draw lights, Christmas trees, presents, stockings, candy canes, fruit cake, your shih-tzu in his little Christmas sweater…anything goes!

47. Halloween stuff

Another holiday with even more weird stuff.

Skulls, bones, black cats, pumpkins, spiderwebs…the list goes on and on.

Draw your decor, your Halloween candy, anything you can find that’s Halloween-y.

Cool halloween drawing

48. Bathroom faucet

Utilitarian things like this are great for drawing practice.

Especially because you don’t look at them often so you have to pay attention to draw them correctly.

49. Bicycle

Bicycle, tricycle, unicycle, tandem, find any kind of bike you want and put pencil to paper.

50. Skateboard

Doodle around your own skateboard or a picture of one.

Really pay attention to knicks, scratches, and bumps that make that particular skateboard unique. Also I bet it’s got some sick deck art.

51. Monsters

Draw a portrait of your favorite movie monster or invent your own.

Cartoony or scary, the style is totally up to you. Might I recommend starting with Mike Wazowski and working from there?

52. A Chair

For an extra challenge, include shadows with as much realism as possible.

Draw a bare-bones kitchen chair or a plush armchair.

Drawing of a chair - realist style

53. Isometric art

If you need a break from drawing true perspective, give this a try. It’s a fun challenge and not something that most artists bother to practice.

54. Quick poses

Practice your figure skills by limiting yourself to ten, thirty, or sixty second gesture drawings.

This process is covered in detail in Proko’s figure course along with all of his free figure drawing videos.

And if you don’t have a bunch of references saved locally you can always use one of these websites to auto-generate poses. This way you just focus on the drawings and really nailing those gestures.

Drawing plain cubes is great practice for shapes. But it gets kinda boring.

Here’s a fun spin on the classic “draw a cube” exercise.

Drawing of small dice

56. Monopoly pieces

While you’re digging dice out of your board games, try drawing Monopoly pieces too.

There’s a wide variety of subjects here so draw them together or one at a time.

Just don’t be too upset when you realize your old Monopoly game has all the classic pieces you miss .

57. Deck of cards

Before you leave the game cupboard, find a deck of cards.

Draw individual cards, the neatly stacked deck, or play a little 52 pickup and sketch the results.

After you draw some easy subjects take a break on the couch.

While you’re there go through the cushions to find some coins.

Try drawing super detailed pictures of individual coins, or dump them and draw them together.

59. Hair styles

This is another great one if you’re bored on your train commute, in a waiting room, or during a class.

Or if you wanna practice some weird hairdo from the 1930s you saw online.

Drawing of braided hair

60. The sun & moon

Whether you’re into realism or more stylized drawings, this is a fun idea for all skill levels.

Try drawing different phases of the moon for an even better challenge.

61. A bridge

You can draw anything from the Golden Gate Bridge to a simple footbridge in the woods.

Or even better: imagine your own.

Drawing of a bridge colored

Pull up a chair in front of your fish tank or Google pictures of the craziest fish on planet earth.

If you haven’t seen a blobfish before you might wanna look into that.

63. Airplanes

Mechanical things like airplanes are awesome for learning proportions and getting control of your lines.

Try drawing a single seater as well as huge commercial airplanes, or anything else inbetween.

Drawing of Serbia Air airplane in sketchbook

Horses have fascinated artists for millenia.

They’re also insanely hard to draw and require a ton of practice .

Find a field of horses to draw from, or find pictures of different breeds. Catch them running, grazing, jumping, rearing up. The possibilities are endless.

Quick sketches of horses

65. Company logos

This is especially great if you’re into graphic design so you can see how sketching logos works.

Try copying your favorite logos or invent some of your own.

66. Silly hats

Hit up Google for this one, unless you’re a crazy hat connoisseur.

Granted if that’s you, hats off to you! (Sorry that was so bad)

67. Famous statues

The Statue of Liberty, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Little Mermaid…

Google famous statues or statues that exist today. Maybe some others from history. Lots of marble to turn into graphite.

When was the last time you really examined your wallet as an object?

Now’s your chance. Try drawing it open and closed, with money or (as we all know) without money.

69. Gym equipment

Draw weight machines, dumbbells, jump ropes, even the pool.

You can find so many interesting shapes and subjects in a gym and the machines are really complex which is great for practicing concept art ideas.

70. Table fan

If you’re sweating on a hot day, distract yourself by drawing your table fan.

Just make sure to sit where it won’t blow your pages around.

71. Old photos

Google or dig out some old photos and copy them realistically or in your own style.

This one prompt can keep you busy for quite a while and leave you smiling as you dig through old memories.

If you still have any childhood toys or if you have kids, well, draw some toys!

It’s also a good excuse to hit up a toy store at 2 in the afternoon.

73. Celebrity faces

Portrait practice is so important!

And what’s more fun to draw than celebrity portraits?

Try drawing your favorite celebrities in famous roles or at red carpet events.

Fullsize Ariana Grande hyperrealism drawing

74. Guitars

If you have a guitar, draw its outline and practice the details.

Pay special attention to frets or little details that make it special.

Water filling guitar - sketchbook drawing

75. A nice car

Draw your dream car and draw yourself driving it.

Or draw a clunker and slap a ticket under the wipers. That’ll show whoever owns that fictitious pile of junk!

76. The human torso

Practice drawing the torso and spend a lot of time here. Anatomy is huge and torsos have so much musculature to practice.

Try male and female, different body types, with and without clothing.

77. Soda cans

Pay attention to logos here and other things like bar codes or nutrition information labels.

Crunch a few cans if you want a more variety.

78. Scissors

For a deceptively simple prompt, draw scissors from different angles. Open and closed.

79. Staplers

While you’re rifling around for the scissors grab a stapler too.

If you want to get really crazy, open it and scatter a few staples around for an office-themed still life. Just don’t touch Milton’s Swingline.

Drawing of a stapler

Copy some of your favorite emojis or design a few you wish existed.

This can be really fun because you can get pretty crazy with the artistic style.

81. Farm animals

So many to pick from here so I guess just draw your favorite!

Cows, pigs, chickens, sheep, rabbits, goats, get out there and smell that farm air.

This can be anything from vast landscapes like mountains or beaches, to the tiniest leaf or mushroom.

Try a bit of both.

83. Door knobs

Draw every door knob in your home and challenge yourself to make each distinct.

It’s harder than you think!

84. Ice cream

Draw it on the cone, in a cup, or still in the carton.

But draw quick before it melts!

85. Nutella

Basically ice cream but better.

Draw the entire jar or scoop out a spoonful and draw that before you gobble it up.

Drawing of a Nutella jar

Anything ocean-themed is fair game here.

Beaches, coral reefs, starfish, tube worms, anything you can think of. Maybe even some nude beaches if you’re into that kinda thing.

87. Any book cover

Draw your favorite book covers and maybe add a few creative touches.

So many beautiful book covers out there to pick from, with new ones published every week. Go exploring!

Draw your house, a friend’s house, or your dream house.

Or browse Pinterest “dream house” boards because you know there’s thousands of these right?

89. World capitals

Draw some of your favorite cities or world capitals you’d like to visit someday.

Images online might be the place to start but if you can book some plane tickets, even better.

90. A swingset

Visit the local park or your own backyard to draw a swingset.

Try capturing it from multiple angles to really expand your practice regimen.

Whether you want to go cute or scary, try drawing one of these mythical creatures and see how it turns out.

92. Your computer

You spend a lot of time on your computer, so give it some attention and immortalize it in your art.

93. Flowers

Head outside to draw from life, or find photographs of your favorites if things aren’t blooming yet.

Or use this as an excuse to buy yourself a bouquet. Treat yo’self!

Drawing of a colorful flower

94. A clock

This could be anything from your microwave clock to a wristwatch to a grandfather clock to Big Ben.

Or maybe some kind of device that combines all three…

95. Thanksgiving

Draw a Thanksgiving feast, portraits of your relatives, Thanksgiving decor, or anything that reminds you of family time.

96. A king & queen

Draw a king and queen from history, from a favorite book or movie, or create your own.

The Queen of Hearts is also acceptable.

97. Motorcycles

Whether you’re into classic or newer bikes, this is a great idea to practice with texture, form, and shading.

There’s also some pretty gnarly designs out there.

Drawing of cool motorcycle

98. Pool table

If you want to step up your basic shapes try drawing a pool table.

It’s all rectangles and spheres with a lot of nuances between them.

99. An old boat

You can make this as simple or elaborate as you want.

Old rowboat or crazy complex pirate ship, it’s up to you matey.

This one’s open to interpretation and that’s what makes it so fun.

Draw a rabbit in a hat, an abstract sketch of what a spell might look like, or something Harry Potter themed. Just be sure to make it… magical.

They might be extinct, but they’re still great for drawing.

Draw a group, or draw a single magnificent dodo all by its lonesome.

102. Ghosts

Have fun drawing cute, cartoony ghosts, or go all in with the horror and gore.

For an extra challenge play with drawing transparent ghosts. This probably requires a bit of color but it’s fun to see how far you can take little challenges like this.

Drawing of cute ghosts

103. Your window

Wherever you’re sitting, draw the closest window to you. Include curtains, blinds, and maybe even your view.

Or maybe a window to another dimension… *twilight theme starts playing*

104. Zebras

Drawing stripes is fun! Also pretty easy to color if you only have a standard graphite pencil.

If you loved the horse prompt then step it up a notch with this zany creature.

Draw jazz instruments, a jazz band, or even an abstract drawing inspired by jazz music.

Your sketchbook, your rules.

106. Tuxedo

You can always draw a guy in a tux which is pretty sleek.

But you could also draw a tux by itself, a tuxedo cat, tuxedo cake… basically just start chasing tuxedos and see where you end up.

107. Wrapping paper

Whether it’s neatly on the row, plain, heavily patterned, or crumpled and ripped after Christmas morning, this is a fun one to draw.

108. Champagne

Practicing sketching a champagne bottle, a cork, champagne in a flute, or all three!

Make sure to get the bubbles in there too. Texture is everything.

109. The circus

Interpret this how you will but it better be festive.

Draw a tent, acrobats, trapeze artists, clowns, show horses, or peanuts!

You could even do a whole sketchbook series on this.

110. Movie theater

When you think movie theater, what images come to mind?

Popcorn, a ticket stub, or even a poster for the last movie you saw. Or the usher walking up the isles with a flashlight on a hunt for those teenagers making out in the corner.

111. Cigars

Draw a brand new cigar, one that’s smoldering and ashy, or a person smoking one.

And have fun with the smoke! That’s one texture you can really push with some practice.

Drawing of a smoking cigar

112. Pizza box

When your delivery shows up, save the box for drawing practice.

Some may call you crazy but I saw it’s worth it. Or maybe design your own box from scratch.

113. A chocolate factory

Try something that would make Charlie proud.

A building, a variety of chocolate, or something in the variety of Roald Dahl.

114. Anything upside-down

This is a classic art exercise because it forces you to look and not just draw what you think something looks like.

So turn any object or photo upside down and start drawing. Pay careful attention to every detail.

If you’ve never done this before you’ll be amazed at the end result.

115. The tooth fairy

When you were a kid, how did you picture the tooth fairy?

Try drawing that and make your kid-self proud. Or find a photo for inspiration and go from there.

116. Candles

Candles come in all shapes and sizes so they’re great practice for drawing forms.

Not to mention excellent practice for lighting if you draw them lit in a dark area.

Drawing of a lit candle

117. Camping tent

Sketch a regular ol’ tent, with or without scenery, or design the ultimate camping tent.

Or go on a camping adventure and bring that sketchbook with you.

118. Hot tub

Keep it simple and just sketch a hot tub (with the cover on, if you want to stay REALLY simple).

Or draw a full-on hot tub party scene. But if you’re drawing from inside the tub make sure you don’t drop your sketchbook. Paper and bubbling water don’t play nice.

119. April Fool’s Day

Anything that makes you think of April Fool’s Day is fair game here.

From a cheesy banana peel, a flower that squirts water, some diagram for short sheeting a bed, or a picture of someone running into a wall of cellophane.

Turn your sketchbook into a prankster’s paradise.

120. Spaceships

Draw your favorite star ships from science fiction stories and keep em coming!

Add some rockets from history or use this prompt to design your own spaceships.

121. People

People are the ultimate drawing subjects.

Draw yourself, your loved ones, celebrities, and random people you see in public. There’s no better artistic practice than working on real people in the real world.

Realist drawing of three cubes

122. Cubes and spheres

Of course, you can always get back to basics with forms like cubes, spheres, cones, cylinders, and pyramids.

These forms are classics for a reason.

Also if you want some totally awesome & free exercises to practice drawing shapes you should check out the Drawabox lessons .

Drawabox is absolutely perfect for beginners and even really good practice for more experienced artists who want to improve their skills drawing from imagination.

1.  The Elements of Making a Comic Cover

Before you start laying out your design, you should know which elements to include when making your comic cover. This will enable you to utilise the 'artboard' space correctly and to preview where the main artwork will be positioned. The basic elements to include on a comic cover are:

To set up the comic book cover template, you may need some graphic design skills to lay out these elements in a well-composed form. Once that's assessed, you can start putting together your thoughts for the cover design. Just make sure to keep the title, series and episode numbers clearly displayed and readable once the artwork is laid in.

2.  Brainstorm & Conceptualise

If this is your first time creating a cover, it's advisable to first look and get inspired by other comic covers in the market, so do your own research. Search online or visit comic stores to check the latest trends.

For example, if most comic books are colorful and full of art, you can choose to create a simple monotone cover design that will stand out from the crowd.

Think about the concept of your comic cover.

Try putting yourself in the place of the buyer, and ask yourself:

The comic book illustration is the front face of the story. The main focus is on having the cover illustration reveal the content of the book. If anything, it should reveal a teaser illustration that intrigues customers to pick up and read what's happening within the comic. 

For example, if the comic is a family drama, depict a family scene in a critical moment as they are interacting with one another. If it's about a superhero, show the superhero/heroine in a compromising or dangerous position. Make sure your primary character/s are on that cover!

Plan the cover by sketching out a dummy.

To help you conceptualise, sketch out your ideas in thumbnail scale or create a dummy. This will help you work through your ideas and get the best image laid out properly. 

Designing a comic book cover artwork is really a technique of composition, and there are a few guidelines to follow to deliver a captivating design, so let's go through them next.

3. Plan the Comic Cover Content

Brainstorm a catchy and fitting title . 

Consider some words that might hook your audience in an instant. A title that perhaps reflects the character's behaviour or emotional turmoil, action plot lines, battles, mystery, or perhaps a funny play on words. For example:

The most common titles either use the main character name, are 'action' based, or have a mysterious tone. 

Make sure that whichever title you choose, it connects with the cover art and offers readers a feel for what the story will be like on the inside. So if it's a romantic comic with the title "Love Lounge", then it should probably reflect a love scene or seductive mood on the cover.  

Keep in mind that the font or lettering style of the title must fit the mood of the story. So don't use a bubble-shaped title if your story is under a horror genre—instead, go for a distressed look. 

Design Tips:

Design tips to choosing comic title and design

Choose which characters to show and how many .

Which characters would you like to place on the comic book cover? Only one main character, two main characters, a villain, a group of people, etc.? It's important to showcase the stars of your comics on the cover, whether it's the villain or the hero.

For instance, showcasing a single character has a more striking appearance than a group of characters. It tends to strengthen the presence of our star character and makes it easier for fans to recognise what and who the comic is about. On top of that, single-character covers tend to give a sense of uniqueness, mystery, and the unexpected. It's preferable to avoid too many characters on a cover, as it may look overcrowded and messy. 

Design Tip: 

 Design tips to choosing comic book catchy cover character representation

Distribute and position characters artistically.  

Comic covers often show characters performing all kinds of motions, like flying, swinging, running, jumping, falling, etc. There are several ways you can showcase your characters on the comic cover, but let's learn how to do so in a more charismatic way.

4.  How to Incorporate Color Into the Cover Design

The colors you choose for your comic book cover can pique interest as well as drawing attention to the design. When selecting your color palette, make sure it reflects the mood you want to create. 

Dark colors convey a sense of evil, suspense, wisdom, or authority. Bright &  Lustrous  colors convey friendship, dynamism, confidence, and ambition. Pastels are suitable for innocence, romantic covers, and lighter subject matters. 

The color tone you choose for your comic should be unique, eye-catching, and always remain consistent to the comic, or you will confuse readers. It works best when you have a branded color scheme so that the reader can distinguish and recognise the comic book amongst other novels.

5.  How to Compose Characters on the Comic Cover

Composition is an important factor when designing the cover. It's how artistic elements are arranged in terms of line work, texture, color, form, space, and so forth to create a balanced image. A nicely composed cover may be achieved by using these compositional tricks:

6. Creativity

Be creative.

Build a mood board, doodle, and play with ideas or word games to generate ideas. Get back to the basics of things and try to spark your imagination, as comic covers play an essential part in comic book sales. Keep in mind that you want to give purpose to your images and maintain artwork that is balanced, clean, and true to the content of the story. 

Try to push the forms and angles of your design and create signature looks by adding your own personal style and flavor to the design. That will get you noticed on the comic shelves and amongst the fans.

Creating a comic cover takes a lot of work. Get feedback from friends and family. Ask if the comic book looks interesting enough. Take note of any minor design issues that you may have overlooked, and gather their feedback and suggestions on how you can make the cover look more appealing. 

Keep yourself updated on the latest comic trends, and remember that these are just guidelines, and there are always exceptions to these suggestions. 

Congratulations! You're Ready!

I hope you were able to learn something new. Now you know the guidelines to creating a good comic book cover, it will steer you in the direction of creating eye-catching designs.

Always remember to have fun and keep your personal style!

How to draw comics: tips and tricks for beginners.

Want to learn how to draw your own comics? Here are some resources and simple tips aspiring artists can use to hone their creative process.

These days, it’s easier than ever for cartoonists and comic book creators to share their vision with the world. Thanks to the Internet, artists and writers don’t have to wait for a newspaper or comic book company to accept their creation – they can simply self-publish them on their own website, or an online platform like LINE Webtoon and reach thousands, if not millions, of readers.

Of course, just because the tools cartoonists have access to today have grown more sophisticated doesn’t mean that comic creators can expect the Internet to do everything for them. Cartooning takes talent and perseverance, after all, and one can hardly expect to launch a successful webcomic or online graphic novel without first mastering the skills of telling a story in comic book or comic strip form.

Fortunately, there are plenty of tips and tricks aspiring cartoonists can use to help guide them on their path to turning a vague idea and some stick figures into an eye-catching series of sequential storytelling panels that will keep readers flipping pages (or clicking the mouse key). Here are a few popular tips and tricks for beginning comic creators and cartoonists.

Work Out Your Ideas Before Drawing Your Comic

Practically all storytellers, cartoonists or otherwise, agree it’s a good idea to know what your story is before you start working out your layouts. Get in the habit of carrying a notebook and filling it with story ideas. Come up with character sketches, ideas for settings, and work out where you want your story to go and how you want your characters to be challenged and how they should develop.

Once your ideas have accumulated to the point where the story is clear in your head, write a script. How detailed the script is can vary depending on how you work – some comic creators like creating full-blown Hollywood-style scripts while others are fine with a detailed outline. Either way, having some kind of script will provide a helpful guide when it comes time to draw the comic – and remember, you can always change the script as the story develops.

Discover The Drawing Through The Process

Matthew Childers is a comic book artist who has self-published several comics, including Jigsaw World, Adventures in Pulp, and Moon Hunters: Tales of the River Folk. On his website, he offers some tips for how to draw faster – something critical when it comes time to draw 20-page comic books with 4-5 panels (or more) per page.

According to Childers, artists should start with a plan before drawing comics, ideally by scribbling quick thumbnail sketches on sticky notes. This will help cartoonists get their ideas down quickly and help them edit later on. Speed and flow are also very important for Childers, who encourages artists to scribble out their layouts and discover what they need to draw through action, not rigid forms or shapes.

Childers also advises artists not to refine or edit their layouts too much but rather go into drawing the final illustrations. Again, he urges artists not to over complicate the process but work out the frameworks and textures of the characters and objects they’re drawing as they begin to take shape on the page. Ultimately, he emphasizes artists should concentrate on telling a story as best as they can – not perfectly.

Create Settings You Love Drawing

Kryistyna Baczynski is an illustrator, comic book artist, and designer. Her comic Hand Me Down was nominated for Best Short at the 2016 Eisner Awards. Baczynski encourages beginning cartoonists and comic book illustrators to set their comic strips and comic books in places that they love drawing. Cartoonists who enjoy drawing wildlife may enjoy creating a comic book set in a jungle while artists more gifted at drawing architectures may want to set their stories in cities.

Since cartoonists and comic book artists are going to draw the same settings over and over again in multiple panels, Baczynski points out that by creating a setting they enjoy drawing, they can give themselves an edge.

Practice Improving the Weak Areas of Your Art Daily

On the flip side, comic book artist and art teacher Robert A. Marzullo encourages cartoonists and creators to focus on the things they can’t draw easily or well and spend time every day improving those areas. What those things are exactly depends on the artist – some artists have been accused of not being able to draw feet very well , while others may find it difficult to draw objects or items like trees or books. By identifying these problem areas and gaining a level of expertise in them, cartoonists won’t get stuck when they’re inevitably called on to draw those things at some point.

Learn From Drawing Tutorials

Receiving instruction on how to improve the weak areas of your technique can also be very helpful in developing artistic skills. Granted, not everyone can afford to go to art school, but thanks to the Internet, art tutorials abound on YouTube and free websites.

Indie comics artist and storyboard artists Joe Catapano offers free drawing tutorials on everything from drawing hands to motorcycles to sci fi style sports cars. He even offers a (free) step-by-step tutorial on creating a comic book. While learning through a computer isn’t the same as in-person instruction, you can definitely pick up some excellent techniques and show yourself how willing you are to improve your craft.

Get Constructive Criticism

Robert A. Marzullo (and many other professional artists) encourage aspiring comic book artists, cartoonists, and illustrators to regularly seek and learn to take constructive criticism about their artwork and visual storytelling abilities. The critique doesn’t have to come from a famous comic book artist (although many artists do seek out critiques from such artists at comic book conventions).

While beginning cartoonists may not enjoy accepting criticism that points out their work’s shortcomings, Marzullo points out that sooner or later, a professional will point out flaws in an artist’s work, making it vital that they learn to take such critique sooner than later.

Naturally, a beginning comic book artist isn’t going to learn everything he or she needs to know just from the tips and tricks above. Nevertheless, every cartoonist, illustrator, or comic book artist should incorporate these strategies and habits into their creative routine at some point – making it more likely that their dreams can be better communicated through their best webcomic or independent graphic novel !

How to Draw Thanos Marvel Avengers Full Body

The written step-by-step video tutorial:

' title=

Step 1: Draw a small circle near the top of the page as a guide for Thanos' head. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. Under the head, draw a U-shaped arc as a guide for the jaw and chin. Thanos has a big jaw and chin, so make the U- shaped line dip low.

Step 2: Inside the head, draw two intersecting lines as guides to help you place Thanos' facial features later on. Under the head, draw two short lines as guides for the neck.

Step 5: Under the midsection, draw two short lines on either side as a guide for Thanos' lower torso. Finish the guide by drawing a line similar to a wide letter V at the bottom.

Step 8: To the left of the torso, draw a couple of curved lines for the visible part of Thanos' other shoulder and bicep.

Step 10: Below the torso, on the right side, draw a big U-shaped line as a guide for the first leg. Below the curved line, draw a wide circle with the top missing as a guide for Thanos' knee.

Step 12: On the left side, draw another U-shaped line with a circle underneath for Thanos' other leg and knee.

Step 13: Below that, draw another circle and lines as guides for the calf and shin sections of the leg. At the bottom, draw a guide for Thanos' foot. It should be a triangle- like shape with a flat tip that points to the left.

Step 16: Under the nose, draw a long, horizontal line for the mouth. Thanos' mouth should be near the middle of the initial arc. There should be a big space between the nose and the mouth. Draw a shorter line under the mouth for the lower lip. Starting on the sides of the nose, draw two lines that curve toward the tips of the mouth for creases. These lines should be long, and they should bend a bit near the middle.

Step 23: Draw a series of short lines around the neck for the shirt's collar. Draw a couple of long, vertical lines below Thanos' neck and across his chest for the shirt's opening. Add a few lines inside the neck for the muscle structure. Draw the part of the shirt behind the infinity gauntlet.

Step 30: Use the shapes on the left as guides to draw the other leg and knee protector the same way. This knee protector is facing left, so angle the shape outward and add the detail inside.
