1. It's the first day! Introductions and nervous, timid pen control exercises are the agenda for today.

    "You want to know the difference between a master and a beginner? The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried" - http://doodlealley.com/2012/10/10/be-friends-with-failure/

    "The ceramics teacher announced he was dividing his class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right graded solely on its quality ... the works of highest quality were all produced by the group being graded for quantity!" - http://sivers.org/qlq

    365 Days of Drawing is going to be 365 failures in drawing. In an attempt to rekindle past skill in art, I'm deliberately practicing every day from January 1st, 2014, and recording it. I hope to get better at art, show my progress and possibly help anyone else who's wanted to learn how to improve their art technique.

  2. Today I set a 'benchmark' of sorts to establish a base level of starting skill, by drawing a supercar. I screwed up the mic volume on this one, so you can't hear me ramble on about drawing what you see. Also, the file was really big and I had to halve the size. This might happen frequently.

  3. Today I applied a technique from Betty Edward's "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain", where I draw something upside down to stop the brain interfering with while drawing what I see. It removes the association of the image and lets you concentrate on shapes. I drew the car again, this time upside down!

  4. Today I took a crack at relearning human proportion. Wow, am I rusty. I was expecting to get through more, but it totally kicked my butt.

    The URL of the proportions I was using: http://www.goregoregore.com/steps/bodypattern1.jpg

    And the URL of the page I found it linked from:http://figure-drawings.blogspot.com/2008/10/human-anatomy-for-artists.html

  5. Continuing on from yesterday, I drew the proportions of a man from the side view.
