Anyone here into drawing? I picked it up as a hobby over the course of the last few weeks/months. I’ve always really admired the skill and wanted to challenge myself to do it. I have no interest in or expectation of making “good” art (whatever that means), but just to improve and make things I like. I was thinking of starting a thread about all this for folks to share but this seemed like a cool place to share some of the resources I used to start practicing. I’ll say I was not overly dedicated to either of these ‘programs’ or whatever you might call them, but I did find them helpful and fun.
The first is a free website called drawabox.com, which is all about developing the technical aspects of drawing. The second is a book series called “How to Think When You Draw” by the Etherington Brothers. These books are a kickstarter thing and I’m honestly not 100% sure how you actually buy them. My spouse picked them up. But as the name suggests, they’re more focused on the conceptual aspects of drawing.
