If you’re looking for cool things to draw when you’re bored, I’m sharing some creative drawing ideas for you to check out.

These easy drawings are perfect for if you’re looking for something you can draw fairly quickly and receive instant gratification.

Below, I’m sharing cartoon characters, animals, girl sketches, and more.

Gather Your Drawing Supplies

  • Blending Stump: Never blend with your fingers! Blending with your fingers causes the oils from your fingers to transfer to your drawing. Blending stumps allow you to blend without ruining your art.
  • Sketch Book When it comes to sketching, you can’t go wrong with the 300 Series Strathmore drawing pad.
  • Colored Pencils: I love using the Castle colored pencils whenever I add color to my drawings. They’re amazing!
