Cinder Draws a (Lot of) Box(es): Lesson 1
« on: July 04, 2018, 09:33:29 pm »

First, of all, art is bullshit.

I figured I'll make this thread separate from my usual drawing thread, because that one's for my idle sketches. For this thread, lines are gonna be drawn, exercises will be sloughed through, and shit will get done. This is sort of a journal and accountability thread so don't expect anything with actual artistic value.

Going to miss your thread where you got offended in 50 posts, but this should be acceptable sacrifice. Draw the boxes, immediately! Do not draw triangles, nor pentagons. Boxes!

So I haven't read through the first lesson fully yet but my attention-deficit butt messed around on a paper to practice my lines.

This was less painful than I expected. I'll make a new one using a ruler at some point though.
