People often say to me: “You draw like some kind of inhuman machine. If I eat your brain, will I gain your power?” The answer is yes, but there is another way.
The key to precise drawing is building up muscle memory so that your arm/hand/fingers do the things you want them to do when you want them to do them. Teaching yourself to draw a straight line or to make sweet curves is just a matter of practice and there are some exercises you can do to help improve.
If you’re going to be doodling in class or during meetings anyway, why not put that time to good use?
My journal today. I have this week and next week set up (which I rarely do) because it’s finals crunch time and I need to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have a 5-hour still-life class today, so that’s why I have the plant, I promise I’m not just a crazy lady who brings plants to the library.
So for my senior thesis I’m working on a Tarot Deck that tells a story based on the D&D game I’m running. I’ll post a lot of WIPs and finished things once I get my shit together for school since I wanna document my process. Anyway, here’s the Strength card, starring Nesbit.
