How to draw a sloth: 10 great step by step lessons

I think it’s a shame that by the time we reach adulthood, so many of us have convinced ourselves that we don’t know how to draw (or just can’t!). All it took was one slightly critical remark (which may not even have been intended that way) and we pack away our pencils for good and tell ourselves we just aren’t all that creative.

I am certainly guilty of this. I loved drawing as a kid, but somewhere along the line I decided that I just wasn’t good enough and forevermore announced to the world that I was lousy at drawing.

But now I have a daughter, and she’s awesome at drawing. And I see how much pleasure she gets from it. So I draw along with her. And I’ve remembered how fun it is. And I’ve also realized, that the more I do it, the better I get! It’s like anything! It just takes a bit of practice.
