Hello watchers

Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!

  1. First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".
  2. You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.
  3. Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract any attention.
  4. Beginners sometimes tend to draw a line around the face. Never do that! Nobody has a line around his face! There's only a difference between light and darker areas! If there is no difference, the viewer can use it's imagination. That's the interesting part.
  5. When you're drawing, it's a good idea to exaggerate some elements. You might think at a certain point it's too much, although it may just be enough.
  6. Don't push it, everybody needs time to learn! Here is one simple rule: "The more you practice, the better you become!".
  7. Take your time. Making a good drawing with a lot of details takes time, so be patient! My best drawings took 10 to 20 hours!
  8. Experiment. Realistic drawings are made by thousands of good artists! If you can make something refreshing and new, you will be successful.
  9. Never give up your dream to be a good drawer!
  10. Even the best drawers are continuously trying to perfect themselves.
Success with your drawing. I hope this will help and inspire you guys to keep up the good work.

With best regards

1. To yourself, say the name of the only guy or girl you wanna be with 3

times!











*************************************************************











2. Think of something you wanna accomplish within the next week and say

it to your self 6 times!!











~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~































3. If you had 1 wish what would it be? say it to yourself 9 times!!!








-----------------------------------------------------------------------















4. Think of something that you want to happen between you and that

1special person and say it to your self 12 times!!!












--------------------------------------------------------------------















5. Now, heres the hard part! Pick only 1 of these wishes and as you scroll

down focus and concentrate on it and think on nothing else but that wish.

Now make one last & final wish about that one wish that you picked.







After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people, and what

you wished for will come true within in one week!







u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your
crush!!!



























































Keep going

down



























Keep going







































Keep

going








































!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!











Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was your last chance. Now

pay very close attention this important message!



Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda chain

letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1864 and if you

break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing these

stories.







First Example:



Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl, up till she got this same

chain letter. She had a crush on the same kid since kindergarden. when she

got this mail she didn't pay any attention to it. She just thought, no big deal.

And deleted it. The next day her dad got fired and her mom dies in a car

crash. If she would have sent the letter none of that would have happened

and her mom would be alive.







Second Example:



Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average nerd. Had glasses, was

short and chubby, was in gifted. All the signs of
your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51
people in the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since 3rd

grade. The next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her love for

him ever since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to ask her out,

and of course, she had been waiting to yes to that for years. They grew up

and
married each other to live happily forever.







Third Example:



Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll get ya hooked. Listen to this.

A kid named Jordan Johnson was just getting on AOL to check his mail.

He was a quiet kid, not that popular but not a geek either. he was just

normal. He saw he had mail from his friend. It was this exact letter. Now

Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and he knew what could happen if he didnt

pass it on. He simply pulled a few friends from his buddy list and sent it

along. The next day, about that same time, he got a phone call. It said he

had won the lottery!
then his dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him

Nintendo64 and play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer,

and his best friend
gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and Limp

Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was goin' wild!

the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been going out

ever since.







Now, you heard the stories. I know which person i'd rather
be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but thats only

me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to go out withthat

special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you send this to-



1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love life..... forever!!!!!



10 people- your crush will say they like you as a friend...... ONLY!!!!!



15 people- your crush will say they like you



20 people- your crush will ask you out!



25 people- your crush will kiss you!!



30 people - Your crush will have sex with you



35 people or more- All of the above!!



Don't blow it, it's ur chance to shine! Have everything u wanted, and more!

Now, complaining cus u dont have any
friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It's simple, just go in a chat

room, pick some names and send away! but here's the catch..... you only

have 1 hour
if the pain goes on im not gonna make it...!
