Can anyone recommend any drawing books that include daily exercises to improve my drawing ability. I can draw "fairly" well if I'm givin time to draw and the object/s are in front of me to reference from. But if someone were to put a blank piece of paper in front of me and ask me to draw something I can't, and my drawings look like a 1st grader drew them.
I'm not real confident with a pencil in hand. So I just want to know does anyone know of any exercises or books containing exercises that I can do on a daily basis to gain that confidence as well as improve my line work.
thats your problem. be confident. the more hesitant you are the more it shows in your drawingsOriginally Posted by RFX.

and drawing form the head just doodle. i know it may seem like a lame advice but just let your mind wander. you'll eventually come out with something that you like. dont do in thin you want to draw some bad ass robot ninja with laser eyes. 99 out of 100 times it wont work.
as for excercises set out a very simple still life like a apple. draw to the most extreme detail several time from the smae angle. then draw it form your head trying to capture the same level of detail. then do the excercise again from a new anle with more objects. your practicing bth life drawing and imagination drawing.
also have fun

Well I believe that in that case you will get mostly the same type of advice:
Just draw from your mind and keep it loose, don't think about what you draw, just do it . Whe I started drawing it was always if I had a huge knot in my brain, and I think that that┤s your problem, before you start any exercises about technique, anatomy and so on you should make Mr. pencil your friend.
Do some kind of warm up training with drawing circles, lines and random stuff on a simple shitty sheet of paper. Just have fun and don't think, let your instinct lead you.
Thanks for the feedback guys. I really appreciate it.
