The community quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the Philippines to come to a standstill. As we stay home for the sake of flattening the curve and helping out medical frontliners, it might be the best time to actually learn a new hobby or two. Personally, I find drawing therapeutic. Even before the lockdown, I made it a point to try and play around with my sketch pad every weekend to destress and get away from the pressures of life and social media.

Though I was an art major back in college, I still think picking up a pencil and paper isn't only for those who've got that the talent to do so. Getting creative serves many purposes, and maybe discovering your inner Picasso or Raphael might actually help with your anxieties during these uncertain times. Below, are five fun and easy-to-follow fashion illustration tutorials to get you started.

If you'd like to draw and paint faces.

Drawing a person's face looks difficult at first,  but with the right technique it shouldn't be as frustrating. In this video, I show you how to do the line art technique for a human portrait. Shapes and guides are key, while a harmonious color palette might be all you need to ace this style.

If you'd rather just stick to a simple pencil and paper.

This might be the most difficult tutorial in the series, but it might help those struggling to perfect sketching faces. In this more detailed tutorial, I show you how to sketch a human face from scratch with an accompanying photo reference. You'll discover that paying attention to detail and sticking to your guides will help millions when working with the humble pencil.

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
