Using Shapes In Your Art

Using shapes on your art can be very helpful in the process of drawing things like horses, dogs, cats, apples, etc.  Shapes make the body form of your art to make it more realistic.  In this post, I will use an apple as an example. 

First, you want to draw circles for the different bulges in an apple.

Make sure and draw your circles lightly so they are easy to erase.  Don't forget to shade your apple when you are finished!

Another way you can use shapes are to actually make something more complicated from simple shapes.  For example, you could draw a flower plant holder by using four lines and three circles.

Of course, you can do other things by "building" with shapes.  You can make clothes, furniture, and many other things.  Just use your artist imagination to create anything with shapes!  Good Luck :)!
