Practice, Practice, Practice - My new moto. There was a quote on someone's blog that "you learn to draw by drawing" which I think equates to practice. I have a hard time doing real people. So, I'm compartmentalizing them. Right now I'm drawing heads, that's why there's so many of them. I think if I get the body parts down right, I'll be able to put them together - sort of like my own grid system.
Next up is a series of heads with expressions, happy, sad, angry etc. Then it's on to hands - lots and lots of hands.
