This is based on a conversation I had with the artist of Tim The Apprentice and occasional illustrator. Admittedly it’s not a technique I use a lot because I don’t draw from what I see a lot. But I kinda expected it to be a technique taught in art schools. Apparently this is not the case.
I have never been to an art school myself and the one drawing course I did had me drawing flowers and plants until I got sick of it. Though in fairness drawing flowers means you have to draw a lot of details.
In less happy new today it was revealed that Robin Williams has passed away. I considered doing a comic about that, but I’m not keen on using someone’s death to promote my comic. That said my condolences to his family and friend and despite his personal issues he will be remembered as someone who made people laugh wherever he went.
I’ll leave you with these wise words from Robin Williams.
