Drawing Techniques


Drawing Techniques

In this video I run through all the basic drawing techniques –  there are some simple tips and do’s and dont’s which you should know before you start.

  • Using a pencil
  •  Measuring in
  • Drawing a line between two marks
  • Using a drafting square or protractor


A demonstartion of how to trace and transfer the patterns to your drawing can be seen in the video: Mark the Pickups and tracing


If you are just designing for fun then accuracy is not so important however if you are going to build some of the most simple errors can cause major problems down the line. Make sure to check everything at least twice if you are going to use your design to build from.

NOTE: There is a summary PDF “Drawing Techniques” to support this lesson
