For me, Drawing step by step was the best method to learn how to draw because I could see and follow the artist as they created their pictures.
When I was learning to draw nothing helped me more than being able to copy the work of someone else. If you are looking for similar step by step material then you have come to the right place!
When you are beginning it's best to start off with something easy to build up your confidence. I personally like this easy-first, hard-later approach when I am trying to do anything new - be it a new technique, or something I've never tried before.
If you start off trying to do something that is too far above your skill level, you will probably get frustrated and give up! With that thought in mind I have rated the following step by step guides with a difficulty rating. Use whichever one you wish, but try to choose one that is a good match to your current drawing skill, but don't be afraid to look at the guides above your current skill as well.
