  • Practice is the key to success. Try to sketch almost anything and everything you come across.

  • Browse through various newspapers, magazines and online sites.

  • Take ideas from various advertisements, posters, banners etc., you come across.

  • Keep your eraser away from you while practicing. It’ll help your lines become more bold and confident.

  • Give importance to detailing where ever required, like the face of a human figure or the human’s outfits etc.

  • Try to master the skills of human illustration. Concentrate more in proportions, form etc.

  • Calligraphy skills come handy in posters, banner design, etc. Learn and practice different styles of lettering as they can come handy.

  • Stick to the prescribed syllabus of the NIFT entrance exam.

  • While sketching first make a light sketch and later darken the drawing once you are confident about it. This helps you save time erasing mistakes.
