This one has to go at the top of the list! My handsome boy, Vinnie, has already been drawn and enjoyed by hundreds of other artists. There are four parts to this video, equalling over 7 hours of real time tutorials, in which I’ll take you through every step of this drawing, giving you details of the pencils, paper, and techniques I’m using.

My most recent Live Draw Along, I recorded this on New Year’s Day. I chose a deer as they are meant to symbolise gentleness, mindfulness and kindness, which I thought was a great message to start a new year on.
This is just a one-part tutorial, but lasts for over three hours, so there’s plenty of time to work in lots of detail and create a really lifelike deer.

This is a really useful tutorial if you’re wanting to improve your skills when it comes to drawing dark fur. I talk you through the initial layers and the colours I use, and hopefully help you get to grips with one of the more difficult shades of fur.
This is another stand-alone video which is just over an hour and a half long, so is actually one of my shorter tutorials.
This video focuses on another aspect of animals that can be hard to master. Getting eyes to look realistic is a key part of any animal drawing, and when they don’t go quite to plan, it can have a huge impact on your overall drawing.
In just over two hours, I take you through how to draw realistic cat eyes from beginning to end.

Another series of Live Draw Along videos to keep you busy for a day or so, there are five parts to this Spaniel tutorial, equalling almost seven hours in total. There really is so much detail in these videos too. I focus on those lovely ears, lifelike eyes, the nose and all of that gorgeous curly fur.

This happy alpaca was a lot of fun to draw, and if you’re feeling a bit blue, it’s lovely to see that cheeky smile looking up at you from your paper. Not only will he make you smile, he will give you a chance to tackle light, curly fur, which can be difficult. Also, I worked on drafting film for this drawing, so if you haven’t had a chance to work on that surface before, this will be a great opportunity to try something new.
There are five parts in this tutorial, totalling six and a half hours, and loads of detail to keep you occupied.

Something a little bit different, this Live Draw Along focuses on drawing leather instead of drawing an animal. This is great it you draw horses and want to be able to include things like nosebands and bridles in your drawings. It will even come in handy if you need to add a collar into a drawing of a dog or cat.
This is another one-off tutorial, and is quite short at just an hour and a half long.
