Start with a Shape

This was a very helpful activity for me. I struggle a lot with just starting. I started by prepping some paper, as suggested, and I found that by the time I finished, ideas were flowing rapidly. I started in a small watercolor sketchbook I have, and then I wanted something to work on right now, so I used index cards and kept it pretty dry. Just threw down some shapes and let them dry and then inked over them. I liked having small pieces to work on, and a variety of shapes to try to find pictures in. I made sure not to get TOO detailed with it. Definitely a helpful exercise for loosening up my drawing and not getting obsessed with fine details.
