Reconnecting with Line Drawing

Reconnecting with Line Drawing - student project

As I've moved over into a digital workload over the years, I've sadly neglected traditional methods of drawing - which was never my intention - as it's the root of how everything started for me. I'm starting to allocate myself me time again to re connect with drawing and illustration, as it's something I've always loved doing.

This project helped to kickstart my comeback.

^ Felt so weird using my left hand but I'm shocked that I actually managed to draw something

^ I actually found it easier to have my eyes closed - which is bizarre because I was so used to life drawing years back and was always analysing a subject.
