The Fakulty here at Sketchbook Skool provide a wealth of knowledge when it comes to drawing techniques, styles, and tools. In addition to these more practical pieces of information, the inspiration our instructors provide is what sets Sketchbook Skool apart from your typical online course. Students often take quotes from different klasses and turn them into wonderful works of art thanks to some tips on hand-lettering from Seeing or ideas about composition from Beginning. Below, we have pulled together some of the words of our fakulty members that really get people drawing!
You can’t control a drawing, it takes you where it wants you to go. And what a great surprise that is.
Keep it simple, stupid!
There are stories all around us in everyday life
Do not to wait until you have a nice idea for drawing.
Little moments are often the best memories.
Each day when you draw you learn something new.
All you really need is something to draw ON and something to draw WITH.
Just pick up a pen and go!
Wonky circles are a fact of life – just get over it … and keep working.
We are our own worst critics. Don’t over analyze your work. It’s only a drawing and I’m sure it’s wonderful.
Don’t aim for a perfect picture—it’s practice, go with the flow.
Rewards come from doing difficult things.
There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.
—Bob Ross (Okay so Bob Ross never taught for Sketchbook Skool… but plenty of fakulty members have referenced this quote so we think it’s quite important!)
If you ever find yourself wondering what to draw, simply choose a quote from above, or anywhere else, and draw it. Putting these words on the page of a sketchbook not only gets your ink flowing, but will give you something to return to the next time you need a bit of inspiration.
And if you liked any of these, there’s quite a bit more where they came from. Sign up for a Sketchbook Skool kourse today for more inspiration!
