Another fun drawing lesson coming your way and this time it's going to be on a pair of hand drums. I do have a tutorial on a full set of drums that are commonly used in rock and roll bands and such. Like always I was asked if I could make a lesson on "how to draw a drum", step by step but the drum requested was not your typical stick playing set. Instead a very simple style of hand drums was requested. This is not the first time these types of drums where requested. In the past someone asked me if I could do a lesson on a hand drum because they wanted to make a nice background for their favorite Nintendo game character "Donkey Kong". Now I want to apologize for taking so long to fill the request when it was asked of me more than a year ago. Back then I was extremely busy getting the site optimized for better surfing, and member interactivity. There is many different types of hand drums because there are many different cultures that use this type of instrument for musical and religious purposes. For example; in Africa they use a drum called the 'djembe', and with the Latin race, they use hand drums like congas and bongos. Anyways, I guess that is all I have to say about these drums, and I know you will have fun teaching yourself "how to draw a drum", step by step. I will be back but unfortunately when I return, it will be my last lesson for the day. Adios people, and have an awesome drawing day!
