I work with beginning pencil artists who are just learning how to draw. These aspiring artists are trying to build a habit of daily sketching practice, but they still struggle to create sketches that are pleasing to them.

Together, we will create sketches that are fairly quick yet still maintain realistic qualities, from one simple step to the next, so you can have a full understanding and appreciation of the process for sketching something that makes you proud.

Are You Yearning to Create Stunning Pencil Sketches? See If These Questions Resonate with Your Artistic Spirit...

  1. Do you have limited drawing experience and limited to no training?
  2. Do you want to improve your ability to create quick sketches that still have realistic elements?
  3. When trying to sketch a subject from a photo, do you have trouble just knowing where to start?
  4. Have you tried over and over again to get better proportions in your sketches with no satisfactory results?
  5. Could you use a structured method for applying values to your sketches that makes the shading process make more sense?
  6. Do you struggle to follow along with drawing tutorials online that speed up or skip over crucial steps?

Unleash Your Artistic Side with the Step-by-Step Sketching Tutorials Found in the Quick Sketch Collection!

  • Imagine completing a sketch all by yourself, from start to finish, that you can actually be proud of, in spite of limited experience and lack of formal training.
  • Envision having the ability to make sketches with realistic qualities without spending hours on each.
  • See yourself approaching each sketch with a confidence in knowing where to begin and how to see it through.
  • Imagine unlocking the secrets behind proportions that can eventually make sketching contour outlines of any subject become second nature.
  • Picture yourself starting to shade a sketch while having a solid plan for the pencils you will use and the values that will help bring it to life.
  • Imagine being able to keep up and actually follow along with a drawing demonstration at a normal, realistic pace.

Make no mistake that YouTube drawing tutorials can be very valuable. I have learned a lot about drawing and sketching by following along with them.

But if you’re anything like me, you've wasted tons of valuable time pausing YouTube videos of drawing tutorials while trying to keep up.

You've struggled to guess at how to fill in the missing gaps.

Even if you figure out how to slow a tutorial video down, it's impossible to comprehend any special instruction or insights the artist is trying to relay during the slowed-down video.

That’s why this collection contains full-length, extended tutorials of the drawings and sketches, so that now you can confidently follow along at a normal, "real-time" speed and complete sketches of your choosing from start to finish, one small step at a time.

Hi, I’m Jack.

I am a self-taught artist and the creator of the Let's Draw Today Club!

My experience as a first-grade teacher has taught me the value of breaking big concepts down into small, learnable steps. That is the same approach I bring to my drawing tutorials.

Whether you are a beginner or you have a bit more drawing experience, it is my goal to make helpful, step-by-step drawing and sketching tutorial videos and courses that will allow you to easily follow along, create beautiful drawings, and build your confidence in your skills and abilities to draw things you never thought you could draw before.

I look forward to sharing my passion for drawing with you here in the Let's Draw Today Club!

This "course" is not your traditional course. Instead, it contains a growing library of step-by-step video tutorials that aim to help you get started, to guide you, and to inspire and motivate you as you work toward building a habit of creating daily sketches.

With each new video and each new sketch you complete, you will boost your skills and confidence along the way!

This is a GROWING collection of quick sketch videos and daily sketching prompts. That means I will continue to add new sketch videos and prompts to the collection over time.

The good news, though, is this is NOT a subscription offer!

For a one-time price, you will have access to all of the current sketching lessons and prompt references PLUS anything I add to the collection in the future!

As I add new content to the collection, the price will gradually increase over time. If you'd like to take advantage of this offer, make sure to do so before any price bump!

As You Explore the Content That Makes Up This Collection, Here Are Some Things You Can Expect...

Successfully Complete Sketches Regardless of Any Lack of Experience

Because these tutorials walk you along from a blank page to different stages of a finished sketch at a normal, unrushed pace, it is not necessary for you to have experience or a ton of familiarity with the sketching process or materials used. Of course with practice, each sketch will become easier, and you will likely become more satisfied with the results. Still, if you are a true beginner, you should be fairly pleased with what you end up with after following a tutorial (compared with attempting it on your own).

Create Quick Sketches That Maintain Realistic Elements

The tutorials you will find within this collection are designed to meet a diverse range of needs and interests. Many of them are quick, unpolished sketches simply meant to get you started and to build the habit of sketching something every day. Others sketches are more complete and might take a bit more time, but nothing more than 60 to 90 minutes. Some are just contour drawings, while others take you through the entire shading process. Topics include people, animals, landscapes and plants, buildings and structures, and everyday objects.

Follow Along and Sketch with Me As You Watch Videos Showing You How to Get from A to B at a Normal Pace

For each video lecture (or lesson) of this collection, you will find a tutorial walking you through a partial "quick" sketch or a more complete sketch of a different subject. Multiple reference photo variations are provided for each sketch. As you gain confidence and explore your creativity, these references allow you the option of taking your sketch beyond my video demonstration. Watch as I sketch each pencil stroke at a normal speed, allowing you time to carefully observe and do as I do.

Learn Effective Approaches for Developing Proper Proportions

You will see my step-by-step approach for achieving the proportions of any given tutorial. Although there are different approaches that can be used, I will steadily guide you through one approach for a particular sketch, one small step at a time. Included is a dedicated lesson that explains in detail how to identify the proper placement of the outer edges of a photo subject so that it fits comfortably within the "frame" of the drawing paper. In addition, each video lesson includes a reference photo variation with special guidelines for this exact process!

Remove the Complexity from the Shading Process with Tailor-Made Reference Photo Variations

Just as with proportions, there are different approaches you can use to shade a sketch. Included in the collection is a special lesson that explores the benefits of taking the entire spectrum of black-and-white values from a reference photo and simplifying that spectrum into 5 basic values. Also, each video lesson includes a reference photo variation containing only these 5 simplified values. Whenever you decide to use this special reference photo to add shading to your sketch, the simplicity of it gives you a brilliant starting point and roadmap to what beginners might call an otherwise complex shading process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is the Quick Sketch Collection?

The Quick Sketch Collection is a collection of tutorial videos that cover quick sketching sessions based on selected daily prompts from our private Facebook group, Pencil Sketching for Beginners and Beyond. The videos demonstrate a partial or more complete sketch of a specific photo reference. The collection covers a wide range of subjects. Also included in the collection are a variation of reference photos for each subject plus special references that cannot be found within the Facebook group. New videos are added periodically, and reference variations for new Facebook group prompts are added regularly!

How are these any better than the free drawing tutorials I can watch on YouTube?

Although you can learn from watching YouTube drawing tutorials, you are left filling in the gaps when videos speed through or skip over steps in the process. With the videos in this Quick Sketch Collection, you can draw every step along with me at a natural and achievable pace. Over time, you will have the skills, confidence, and resources to take your sketch beyond my demonstration whenever you wish!

Do the tutorials feature any other mediums besides pencil?

The goal of this particular collection of tutorials is to help aspiring artists who use graphite pencil to complete their drawings.

With that said, you are certainly free to experiment with other tools and methods as you follow along with any of the lessons. Go ahead... explore and expand upon your creativity when you feel ready!
