Is there a recipe for cool drawings?
Do you have any idea how art students learn to draw still lifes? They usually sit in large rooms where there are a plethora of everyday objects. They are taken as role models. It is not uncommon for them to be hung up on boards specially designed for them.
Cool drawings depend a lot on the motif
This strategy doesn't only work for art students. Beginners and semi-professional designers can also do this.
Light and shadow games
Make or paint cool drawings of everyday objects yourself
The everyday objects is a wonderful subject when you want to learn or practice still life drawing. You have two main strategies to choose from. The easier method we recommend for beginners is mimicking.
The hardness of the lead and the quality of the paper are also important
The most important thing is to learn to see
Represent the nature of the material correctly
Find cool drawings and try to trace the strokes. If you are a complete beginner, find another technique that works better for you. Some people perceive the strokes best intuitively through imitation. Others, on the other hand, like to have some additional theoretical guidance.
Learning to see the light!
The second strategy is more recommended for advanced "artists": With this, you take the real objects as a template and draw them.
Try different techniques
The objects do not have to look photorealistic
Criteria for selecting objects
The really good drawings work above all if you choose the templates carefully. There are a few rules that could be useful to you.
Practice with everything you have, anytime, anywhere
Very ordinary at first glance
The objects that appear absolutely ordinary are particularly suitable for great results. At first glance, they do not represent anything special. It is all the more effective if you show them from a different perspective with cool drawings.
Drawing drapes is important and not exactly easy
Some objects do not arouse any interest, no matter what artistic perspective one chooses on them. Others, on the other hand, have an appearance that stimulates the imagination and can arouse many exciting associations.
Observe the shape and its interaction with the light
Practical for carrying, putting away… or preparing
Practice makes perfect if repeated long enough. You need the templates for your drawings over a long period of time. Surely you don't want to create a big mess!
Choose items that you can easily put back in place. These items could also be assigned a special location.
Practice, practice, practice…
Food can also be suitable objects for still life drawings. The important premise here is they can stay fresh a little longer, even outside of the fridge. You can then also use them when cooking or baking.
Set goals for yourself

Learn to distinguish styles and strokes
Filled and slightly crushed paper bags are other great templates for drawing. They cast wonderful shadows and have a contemplative effect. These objects evoke different associations. For people who like to let their imagination run wild, they are wonderful!
What looks easy is usually difficult

Perspective wants to be learned by heart
Seeing and drawing in perspective

Learn from the best
