great hair day

This student had a great insight doing this drawing.

Here is my assignment. I used a 6B, a B, & an H. I spent about 15 minutes on my drawing. I took a little different approach than I usually do when I draw. I tried to just motor through the picture. Usually, I like to take my time, but I wanted to challenge myself, to push my limits. I'm glad that I got a little out of my comfort zone. I think that's the only way that we will get better at anything. We have to push ourselves, and push each other. Something that has helped me in the last few weeks, and maybe it will help some of you: I try to think of the lines that make up a whole of the drawing as just that, lines. Pieces that make up a whole, like the parts of a machine. I'm not sure if this is a correct theory (Honoria, please correct me if I'm wrong. I don't want to give out incorrect information.). It helps me to be a little less intimidated of whatever it is that I have to draw.
