Have you ever wanted to copy something from a picture like a person or animal, but thought it was too complicated? Well, here's a way of beating that problem... turn the picture upside down!

You will need:
  • paper
  • crayon
Take the picture you want to draw and turn it around.

Here, Neil's turned around his picture of a kangaroo, so it's no longer a kangaroo - just a collection of funny, weird shapes!
So - it's no longer a kangaroo that he's worried about drawing! Instead, it's just a case of drawing the different shapes.

That's all you need to remember. Draw what you see, breaking each part of the object up into different shapes.
If you keep going in exactly the same way, adding in the shading when you've finished, you'll end up with your finished picture.

Turn it around, and there you have it - a kangaroo!

Try it yourself!
