Back to the foundations.

Life drawing doesn't get much reaction from people on the the internet.  I think its really interesting to see peoples life drawing chops because I know I didn't really learn how to draw until I hunkered down and tried to draw what I saw.  Then my cartoons got better! My teenage brain couldn't understand it.  But now that I've grown up (just a bit) I can see the coloration between my extremely exaggerated cartoons and my ability to draw from life.  If I don't practice life drawing, my cartoons just start to suck.

If you feel stuck on some illustration or character design, grab $2 and go to a coffee shop and draw the weird people there for a while.

Whats your favorite place to do some life drawing?
