Very good tips to get you started. I really like the peanuts and blob ideas- they're very good warm up exercises
This was exactly what I have been looking for. A great variety of exercises to warm up with and improve my drawing! Thanks!!
I am halfway, but really recommend it! Lots of exercises that have been opening my mind and releasing tension from my drawings.
