Shapes, Lines and Angles

I have a habit of getting straight to the details, but to grow as an artist, we need to learn to think in term of shapes, lines and angles. If you imagine and see yourself drawing a person, then it can be difficult. But if you see them as big shapes and lines then the process becomes much easier.  So that’s what I’m trying to train my mind to do. Find yourself references of poses and break them down into shapes and lines in your mind and then block out those shapes. Keep at it and move at a quick pace. Use big brush and erase here and there if you need to, but don’t focus on the details. Once you improve in this area you can do a lot of thumbnailling later on.
