Eyes rest on either end of their huge heads that are often covered with elaborate colors and patterns. Fortunately, all of this complexity can be simplified into easy to draw shapes and lines. I can’t think of a more...read more

In this step by step drawing tutorial, we are going to draw a smiling mouth. There’s nothing better than a face with a smile on it. However, it can be difficult to draw a mouth that’s smiling.

So enough about Rhinos, let’s draw...read more
