I’m trying to make every texture of my sketches differ. It’s not easy, but rather useful.
The other thing is drawing the surroundings, not only people. It’s not easy to get a lot of variety in subway and cafés, so I draw phone photos on my mobile mostly. Sometimes I use instax mini shots for this purpose — it’s the most convenient, but for now I don’t have my one instax camera… So I use the phone. 2 months ago
How I did it: A lot of practice, lots of patience and more practice.
I found looking at reference pictures really helped me until I learned to draw freehand. (There's heaps available on Google these days!)
Another thing that helps is looking at tutorials and working out which way of drawing suits you. I prefer sketching but others may like to get basic shapes down and work from there. Read how I did it… 2 months ago
I draw everywhere: at home, in cafe waiting for my lunch, in subway… Mostly in subway)) For now it looks like this. 4 months ago
I did an all day life drawing class yesterday. I felt I was the worst in my class, wanted to run away, but stuck to it. I need to do this more, preferably every day. Also take more classes. 4 months ago
