Wow, this makes drawing easier. It's really hard to force myself not to jump right into the detail, but this is taking so much of the struggle out of drawing. I normally would start with drawing 3, but then I'm working on construction, pose, anatomy, proportion, and line quality all at the same time. This way, I can worry 1st about the pose, then about the construction/anatomy, then about the line quality. If you can't tell, I'm a huge Ben Caldwell fan!
I've been trying to come up with a more methodical aproach to drawing. A way to take some of the frustration out of it. I'm trying to work from more simple shapes and then build up. If I can nail those initial shapes easily the rest of the drawing is much easier almost, dare I say it, enjoyable!
