I'm looking for a kind soul to give me some detailed excercises that can get me started on drawing from the ground up... assume I know nothing and need to learn everything.
what should I be doing first... a couple pages of simple shapes? lines? really fast sketches or thumbnails of figures?
everytime I try to practice I get discouraged because the task Im trying seems too hard for me, but I dont know where I should start... so I can just say "yes this seems too hard but I should be able to do it" and then move up from there... its hard to explain what Im looking for... but Im sure someone will understand
basically I want some examples of what I should do as I progress from the very start... and if you have examples of each one that would be great too... (like if I should do some quick form drawings, what they should look like and what things I should focus on...)
yeah I know Im basically asking for art school in a forum post but I believe in you guys lol... no seriously, I dont need professional instruction out of this, just things I should be doing as a complete beginner... tired of drawing like crap... need something to keep me busy on those long bus rides.
