The 5 Best Drawing Bases: The Basics of How to Draw and Sketch.
Drawing is an art form that can be learned and mastered by anyone. It just takes patience and practice. Drawing bases are the basics of how to draw and sketch. They’re the foundation on which you will build your drawings or sketches.
Each base is different, but they all share a few common elements. You will find out more about each base below.
The Importance of Drawing Bases
Drawing bases are the most important part of drawing. They create a framework for all future drawings and sketches. Without a framework, you body lacks a base to work from and without a base, your next drawing or sketch will be less likely to be successful.
Drawings or sketches can often be improved by simply adjusting or changing one element of the base. For example, if you sketched an elephant head but it was too long, you could shorten it to make it more proportional. If you had just drawn an elephant head without any other information, then you would need to start over instead of just reworking that one element.
What are basic drawing bases?
A drawing base is a set of simple shapes that can be used as a foundation for any drawing or sketch. You will use these basic shapes to create more detailed drawings and sketches.
There are many different kinds of bases, but they all share a few common elements.
Drawing bases are the basics of how to draw and sketch. They’re the foundation on which you will build your drawings or sketches. Each base is different, but they all share a few common elements:
1) Basic shapes
2) One big shape
3) One small shape
4) One curvy shape
5) Straight lines
Sketching is basically drawing using light, quick strokes that you can easily erase. It’s often used to create the layout of something before you draw or sketch it in more detail.
The best thing about sketching is that you don’t need any materials. I would recommend practicing by trying to sketch animals, people, objects, and other things in the environment around you.
Gesture drawing is a fast way to get a general understanding of what you’re going to draw. It helps you understand the proportions and structure of the subject. Gesture drawing often starts with a vague outline and gradually gets more defined as you add strokes.
Figure Drawing Base
The figure drawing base is the most popular base. It’s often the go-to for many artists because it’s easy to handle and can be used in a variety of different art styles. However, there are other bases that are more complex, but they allow for more detail.
Figure drawing base is simple to learn, even for beginners. The figure drawing base features a standing or seated model that you will draw from life or from your imagination. You will start by sketching the proportion of the body on graph paper. Then, you will add height lines and curves to indicate the major contours of the figure. Finally, you will add details like facial features and clothing to complete your picture.

Still Life Drawing Base
Still life drawing bases are a popular choice for beginners. This base is a great way to practice your skills and experiment with different art materials. It also helps you to get comfortable with proportion and perspective, which is essential when drawing from life. The still life drawing base should be set up so that it can be seen from all angles. There should be enough room on the tabletop or floor for you to put your sketchbook down and move around the table freely.
The first thing you’ll need to do is draw the rectangle outline of the box in which you’re going to place your objects. You then draw vertical and horizontal lines that divide the space into quadrants – these lines represent the edges of the table or floor, if this is not clear. Your next step is to add in any objects you want to use for this exercise; these will include things like fruit, vegetables, jars, bottles, books etc. Be sure not to overcrowd the scene – three things maximum should be enough at this stage.
Next, add in some light and shadow effects by using either shading or hatching (drawing diagonal lines). This will make your still life drawing more realistic and interesting to look at; it will also help you judge proportions and perspective better and identify any errors in scale that you might have made when placing items in your scene. Finally, add finishing touches by adding colours if necessary (or black & white hatching) as well as detail work such as shadows cast by
Landscape drawing is a popular base. It’s often based on nature scenes. Landscapes are typically drawn in the natural colors of the scene, which can consist of various colors or shades. The shapes and lines in a landscape drawing should be soft and gentle, with few noticeable lines.
The best way to start a landscape drawing is by drawing the horizon line (or tree line if you’re painting). This will help give your work a sense of depth and make it seem more realistic. You can then add hills and mountains in the background, trees and other foliage in the middle ground, and streams or rivers.
