Via Artists Network, I discovered this post on The Art of Scribbling written by Greg Albert. The post is a few years old but it still is a good resource. As Albert says, "Scribbling is one of the best ways to improve your drawing skills."
Here are a few of the tips he suggests:
- "Always Draw the Whole Thing on the Paper. Make your scribble fit the paper so no part of your subject matter is left off."
- "Exaggerate the Action. It’s better to accentuate or even exaggerate the feeling of action in your gesture drawings rather than to reduce it."
- "Draw Groups as a Single Unit. When you have occasion to draw people in groups, first draw the group as a whole, then draw the individuals."
For more tips, be sure to read the complete article. I think I'll try some scribbling exercises this weekend.
