Drawing is one of the most expressive art forms. It is also one of the oldest forms of expression in the visual arts. Drawing predates even written language, as evidenced by the rock and cave drawings found by archaeologists. The best thing about this art form is that anyone can practice it. As long as you have patience and want to learn, all you need is a sketchbook and a few pencils. In order to become a good artist you definitely need a lot of patience, as even the smallest, simplest drawings take time and effort. If, however, you are willing to put in the work, you are sure to get better with time. So, if you are looking for inspiration, or somewhere to start, you have come to the right place. We have 100 photos and tutorials for cool things to draw and get inspiration from.

A long, long time ago drawing was a way of remembering history. The images found in caves, for example, represent the history and lives of the first men. As the years went by, however, people developed art and turned it into one of the most stunning forms of visual art. However, it still remains a tool for remembering one’s history. Some of the most famous paintings in the world are inspired by real people and events. All it takes is one look at the Sistine chapel and you will realise how much art can affect somebody. Inspired by the Bible, Michelangelo created the most visually stunning sanctuary in the world.

What’s more, art comes in many shapes and forms. Paintings and drawings, can be created in many different ways, however. Whether you choose to draw with pencil or watercolour, for example, it doesn’t really matter, as both can be equally incredible.
