I’m trying to pick up stuff to teach myself, like drawing a circle with a triangle under it and some lines through it to get an idea of proportions for faces.
My first scribbled attempts and a go at trying to get a likeness.
Im avoiding using a rubber as much as possible to force me to keep doing new pics (rather than spending time on one and going crazy - not that I get much time). I can see that the mouth is wrong and the hat is pulled down too low, so as long as I’m realising this stuff hopefully I’ll improve. I don’t think ultimately it really matters if you think you’re rubbish, I enjoy the momentary peace of focusing on something and having a go at bringing it to life on the page. Wish I’d started years ago tbh. I expect I’ll buy a ‘how to draw’ book one day and discover all the secrets (I love the technical side of art) - that’s always felt weirdly like cheating before, I’m all for it these days.
