How many things can one think of to draw? I'm sure you are probably going off right now thinking about the stuff you can sketch, and to have a fluent, active clear mind to think of the different things an artist can fiddle with is great. But for me it's a lot different. Since I am always drawing, I sometimes forget about the simple stuff that I could be doing that would be beneficial to novice artists, and other artists that want to learn new techniques. In the past I was told that I draw stuff that nobody has ever done before. Of course it would be nice to believe such a concept, but the truth is, there is millions of people that love art the same way that you and I do. Sometimes I will do something that raises eyebrows like the boobs tutorial I did a while back. To some parents, drawing such things is inconceivable. I for one call it art. Today I will be teaching you guys "how to draw a cigarette, step by step. Now, just because I am drawing cigarettes, that doesn't mean I myself am a smoker, or condone smoking. I just thought it would be helpful to teach you guys "how to draw cigarettes" because sometimes I like drawing characters that are either rough, lonely, or have a bad boy image. I'm sure you all know that cigarettes is a tobacco product consisting of a tubular shaped object that contains finely crushed tobacco leaves, that is wrapped in smoking paper and capped with a filter. There is cigarettes however that come without filters. Brands like Lucky Strike, Camel, and even Paul Mall to name a few. I'm sure there is other brands, I just can't think of them right now. The only people I know of that smokes is my grandmother, almost all of my uncles, aunts, and some of my cousins. I have one or two friends that smoke socially, but that's about it. Even though I don't like laws being passed that strip us from our rights, the “no smoking” in certain places law is something I can deal with. This is because I believe that if you are in the presence of someone smoking, you are being polluted with second hand smoke, which is twice as bad as smoking a cigarette. If something effects me and my well being, that is when I say “YES”. Other than that, I could care less if you smoke, or if the preacher smokes, or if anybody smokes. I'm not prejudice to smokers, all I ask is that you smoke your tobacco in a place that I'm not. Having said that, what do you say we start this lesson on "how to draw a cigarette, step by step". I've included some special tips that will help you understand what you need to do when sketching a cigarette. I will be back in a bit so stay tuned in and have a happy drawing day. Peace peeps!

STEP 3.

When drawing a character smoking a cigarette, there is certain things you must know before the sketching process. It is the lips that give the most detail to show a lit cigarette in someone's mouth. There is a slight curve of the top lip that needs to be drawn when sketching a character smoking.

You will now begin sketching out the cigarette starting with the rounded tip that is colored in using a speckle technique. This will make the stoggie look like it's burning. Thicken the lining, and then move to the next step.

STEP 7.

You will cap off your cancer stick by drawing in the filter, which is decorated with speckles within the paper of the filter. Once that is done finish off this drawing by adding a few rings that gives the product a touch of flare. Erase the lines and shapes to clean up your drawing.
