This next lesson is going to be a fun experience because you will learn how to draw a desert step by step. Whenever you attempt to draw landscapes you have the choice to draw a scenario that is customized to your liking. There is so many landscapes that you can draw besides the desert that is cool and colorful. For example learning how to draw a jungle is something that you can get really creative with because you can include a bunch of tropical animals that live in the jungle or tropical rain forest. As for a desert the only types of animals and insects you will find there are scorpions, snakes, lizards, camels, beetles, and many other different types of animals. Plants that live in the desert are things like the cactus, desert dandelions, and the poisonous dogbane which is a plant that looks like a regular soft leafed plant that buds small white flowers. I had a ton of fun drawing out this desert landscape and I wanted it to stay simple. I drew a few desert mountains, three cactus plants some clouds and a hot penetrating sun. The coloring came out wicked good and because of the way I laid out the steps and drew the desert, this will be an easy tutorial to color using simple tools like colored pencils, crayons, or markers. I have to go right now but I will be back in a jiffy. In the mean time sit here a bit and tackle this tutorial on how to draw a desert scene step by step.
