How to Draw Circles | 3 Ways

In this video, I use my non-dominant (left) hand to show you how to draw circles using 3 methods, FREEHAND. To get better at drawing circles, it takes good practice, patience and muscle memory development.

If you’re just starting out, don’t focus on drawing a “perfect circle”, instead focus on drawing a “better” circle every time 🙂

Learning to draw circles FREEHAND comes in handy all the time because a lot of drawings are constructed using this shape, such as the human head, eyes, hands and more.

Finally got around to making this tutorial after many requests 🙂 I hope you guys find it helpful! Let me know in the comment section which technique works best for you!
