Tips For Drawing Succulents

Drawing anything is easy as long as you have certain shapes down, in fact, using shapes will act as a guide to any drawing you do. So, here’s a few helpful tips that can be useful if you’re having a hard time drawing succulents.

1. Use Reference Photos

It’s best to have a guide or the actual thing in front of you when trying to draw something and this is why having reference photos are great when you’re trying to create something. Even if you’re not drawing something realistically, they can be useful in coming up with new ideas to draw cacti in cute ways.

2. Start With A Pencil Sketch

If you’re like me and hate messing up when drawing with ink first, there’s no harm in doing a pencil sketch. This way you’ll be able to clean up mistakes or make improvements as you go along.

Also, you’ll notice that if you’re drawing large succulents, you’ll want to sketch out a circle in pencil as a guide to help you get accurate shapes for the petals.

3. Use Fine Liners or Markers

To really get clean and neat lines or if you just want to draw really small doodles, using a fine liner in the size 0.5 is perfect for that.

Also, sometimes when you color in these doodles, it can make a huge difference the way it looks even if your sketch isn’t great.
