Sketchbook - Practice
Something a little different this time. I try to start everyday with some warm up or practice drawing, usually from reference as a way to ease into the work day. It doesn't feel right to me to just jump into an assignment without limbering up a little. I do this for fun but I also think it's good for me. I don't normally try to draw a thing "straight", but am usually coming from some kind of angle such as simplifying or exaggerating or distorting in some way. This keeps it interesting for me. My straight depictions usually look boring and typical to me so I try to jazz them up a little.
