  • Include younger siblings; teach them like this, and be proud of their efforts.
  • If you use bump technique you should put it on realistic character.
  • Make the sleeves longer/shorter for short sleeve/long sleeve.
  • Change it up a bit so you don't feel like a copier.
  • Make the bottom of the shirt curved so it looks more realistic (unless you want it to look cartoon-ish).
  • Use for anime characters or bubble characters.


  • If you draw in class, listen and take notes at the same time -- concentrate, while drawing small (doodle) in the margins and between notes. Teachers don't mind doodling on good notes, especially if it is related-to/illustrates the topic.
