Learn to Draw Digital Sketchbook, How to Draw—Easy Lessons, and more

Learn to Draw Digital Sketchbook offers an instructional program for iPad users “that’s like being taught to draw by a human teacher.” As you create a drawing on your screen, it talks you through the process step by step. (Free, iPad)

How to Draw: With Artist Matt Busch has users work on paper, but it’s better for learning to draw people. Tapping on a section of each displayed portrait opens boxes that provide guidance on re-creating that particular area. ($2, iOS)

How to Draw—Easy Lessons “is a good app for learning basic skills.” Designed for children, the app presents cartoon illustrations for users to mimic line by line with a touch of their finger. “Like a digital coloring book,” the app gives a user the option of filling in drawings with color. (Free, iOS and Android)
