Your pride; throw it out!
Above I've shown you some quick little photoshop drawings. I am legitimately embarrassed of the one in the lower left hand. It sucks. They guy on the bike is a bit better. Each one challenged me to give up "a good drawing" and explore a bit more.
A couple of "rules" for this exercise:
- keep it quick (about 5 min)
- make rash decisions
- try to mess it up
- do the opposite of your intuition
- do A LOT of them (at least 5 per subject matter)
- reap the benefits of being freed from your own heavy expectations of your ability.
LET ME SEE YOUR CRAPPY DRAWINGS!*
See what other fun things you can do to break out of the old routine! EXERCISE #1 EXERCISE #2
*(remember to send them to me me on twitter, facebook, and/or google+. I'll be posting your drawings at the end of this series with links back to your blog/site)
