By the way, do you know when our kind first developed them? According to the historians, that happened back in 950, when one of the most powerful Chinese dynasties learned how to use sulfur for this purpose. Yep, matches have been around for more than 1000 years!

Some Things To Keep In Mind…

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
