Doodling is not the same as drawing. I always doodle my little designs on things – envelopes, notes, letters, etc. But I haven’t really sat down and drawn in a long while.
I did a bit of drawing Monday and Tuesday night. Mostly working on facial features on my elf character that I just created for RIFTS. I haven’t drawn a human or a human-like figure in a while. I am very very rusty. And since I don’t have a proper sketch pad, I have just been using a regular note book.
I am struggling with making my faces looking realistic and natural enough for my tastes. So right now, I am just sketching faces over and over again, to get a look that I like. In the next couple days, I will be doing some body styles and clothing styles.
I need to find my drawing book that helps me draw the human body that my mother sent me years ago. I think it would really help me “brush up” on my drawing skills.
This is quite relaxing to be drawing again, after so long.
