Brandon Schaefer Taught Himself How to Draw—Now He Wants to Teach Others

Finished painting by professional artists can be as daunting as they are impressive. Folks who are interested in learning to draw can be discouraged just by looking at the works of established artists—there’s just so much to learn. Luckily, today, thanks to social media, even absolute beginners can learn to draw from expert artists, like Brandon Schaefer.

Brandon is a professional artist and illustrator, who’s been drawing and painting since the age of 5. Like most artists, he’s spent hours upon hours honing his skills, learning everything from the physics of light to human anatomy. Now that he’s an established artist, he wanted to give back, and to help others make their first steps into the world of fine art.

On his YouTube channel, he shares short videos on everything from practical tips and trick to pep talks. Whether you’re interested in learning how to shade properly, or you need to figure out how to deal with disappointment, Brandon’s channel is your address.

Drawing requires some basic talent, that’s true, but Brandon believes it’s mostly a matter of practice and determination.  If you put in the hours and practice your technique, you will see results and with Brandon’s guidance, you’ll be a pro in no time at all.
