Copy Typography

Copy typography. Notice negative spaces, alignment, repeated shapes, proximity to group things, varied line weighths for contrast.

Draw Parallel Lines

Put a line on paper. Draw a line next to it that stays equal distance to it at every point.

Draw Long Straight Lines

Take sheets of lined paper, and with solid arm motions, try to accurately trace over the long lines.

Repeatedly Draw The Same Thing With Pen

Draw only with pen, using reference, and keep drawing the same thing until it becomes easier.

Collect Inspiring Images

Go online and find art that truly inspires you. Collect the art in private folders to look at when you are not inspired to start drawing.

Find 2D Abstract Shapes

Find human poses, and find the abstract two-dimensional shapes in their figure.

Draw Organic Forms

Draw organic volumes. Draw cross-contour lines to describe their volumes.

Draw Eyes

Find photos of eyes, and draw them. Try to imagine the underlying structure.

Draw From Observation

Find something you think looks beautiful - a human, location, object - and draw it carefully from observation.

Draw From Memory

Look at reference, put it away and draw from memory. Use reference to fix mistakes, and then do it again.

Draw Negative Spaces

Draw the space *around* an object. Take objects with interesting negative spaces, like chairs and tables.

Make A Finished Drawing

Take a tight pencil drawing and draw it in ink. Erase the pencils afterward.
