My name is Darlene Nguyen and I am a 26 year old Vietnamese Canadian portrait artist. I share free drawing tutorials and art related blog posts on my site. If you are not familiar with my Youtube channel, I work with a variety of mediums and materials to create fun and unique art projects. My goal is to capture the creative process from the first brush stroke all the way to the last and share it with you through short, timelapsed videos. Although it’s fun creating speed drawings, it’s also an incredibly long process – which is why it’s so rewarding to see it all come to life in just a matter of minutes. I hope you enjoy my tutorials and videos!

    • Hi Drani! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment :)
      If you mean, how can you be more comfortable with your artwork, my suggestion is to just draw until you can’t draw anymore. It’s as simple as that. Really get to know yourself and your drawing style, your strengths and weaknesses. It helps to draw every day. Once you get older, you’ll find that time just slips you by. So whatever it is you want to do, do it now :)

  1. I’m so happy I found your website. Ever since I first started finding an interest in drawing, I’ve been using your techniques and they’re amazing! I’ve impressed all of my friends with my drawings, even though they’re a bit wobbly. Thank you for making this website!


    • That’s awesome Rose! If you need any help or have any questions, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email via the contact page :)

  2. You are AMAZING! I hope to be as good as you one day but I’m not quite there yet! Love your videos and your awesome creations, especially the Jack Sparrow Wall of Epic! Keep up the inspiring work!!! :)
