Wee! Making art! Today we discuss drawing with the proper mindset, allowing yourself to fail, and I share some wisdom from Chuck Jones’s uncle on being a mighty fast pig.
Tips for correcting mistakes:
Flip the drawing upside down
Flip it left to right if you’re drawing digitally or look at it from the back if working traditionally
Step back and look from a physical distance
Look at things in relation to each other – arms to leg lengths, etc.
Think of mass, shape, volume, light and shadow instead of seeing the subject as the thing/person it is
We also discuss how it’s not a crime to use reference, (As long as you’re not being a slave to it or tracing) it’s being a professional. I’ve linked this nice DeviantArt gallery and PoseSpace before but they deserve mention again.
