If you’ve ever wanted to be able to draw — and who hasn’t? — there is the most amazing collection of tutorials I’ve ever seen over on Drawspace.com. Anything you’ve ever wanted to learn to do or draw, there are instructions.
Squirkling, for instance. Well, I ‘ve taken a few drawing lessons in my time but I’ve never heard of this technique.
Squirkling is an easy method of shading, in which randomly drawn curved lines (called squirkles) combine squiggles and scribbles with circles to create textured values. The curriculum is designed to enhance various shading skills, and the illustrated projects offer simple step-by-step instructions for rendering several enjoyable subjects.
And is it ever cool — and easy to do! Now you too can learn to squirkle yourself a cute little spruce tree.
