Hi, so I want to improve my drawing (HB pencil and paper, no fancy stuff) and I am not a complete novice, but pretty close to that. Do you have any recommendations for tutorials/courses that could help? Something like The Joy of Painting where I could draw along would be really useful, but I'm not overly fussy.
Hmmm must of the tutorials I find are in youtube so I´ll just link four youtube channels I find useful:
SchaeferArt: This guy is great. He has a lot of painting time lapses and if you want to watch tips on how to become better at arting he´s got some videos on how to draw basically. He also talks about color theory and stuff like that which can be very useful.
DGPaints: God, this guy´s paintings are masterpieces. Most of his videos are speedpaints, but by looking at them you can get an idea of what he does and how he does that.
Art of Wei: Okay this one is kind of a step-by-step guy. In every video he draws with pencil and you can clearly see what he is doing while he explains. His drawings range from portraits from bananas so you can find a lot of variety in his channel.
PaintBasket: I love this guy. He has also several videos where he draws while explaining what he is doing, kinda Bob Ross-ish. He paints with charcoal, oil, watercolor, pastels, and pretty much everything. I really recommend this channel.
I hope you find them useful!
