Anybody can free draw. For example when you are in class and the teacher says to draw the first thing that comes to your mind. The first thing that may come to your mind is a house sitting on a hill, next to a tree, with sun the in sky,with a blue sky, or a rose. you can use anything to free draw like (pen, pencil, marker, paint brush, color pencil, crayon).

Always remember Be yourself when you draw what makes a good artist is it coming from your perspective. What make a bad drawing is recreating another artist art work your drawing  may not come out like the another artist art work. Why? That artist had a certain perspective and way they saw things your perspective is not the same as theirs. Your perspective and the way you feel is what separates you from everyone else.
