I got a new Christopher Hart book. Yes, this is my 6th one (I think I have an art book addiction, send help). This one is all about cartooning and even includes a section about animals. I really like it because I’m trying to learn how to simplify shapes and details and it gives tons of examples and things to practice. Today I decided to draw a teen boy because I very rarely draw boys and I definitely need the practice. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, but it took me quite a while to get it right. I kept wanting to add too many details and I had to force myself to simplify. I know I’ll get the hang of it eventually, but for now it’s a struggle.
