I haven’t gotten very far in Keys to Drawing so far, but the first exercise is to draw my own feet, and so I have.
For basically never having drawn anything still-life in any real level of detail ever, I feel like this was a pretty good first crack at drawing a body part. I probably spent too much time looking at the drawing and not enough at the feet, and I used my eraser some, which you aren’t supposed to do in the exercise.
This is getting me excited to take ArtDes 100 – Drawing for Non-Majors next semester. Should be a great class.

I bought myself a sketchbook today.
Which is good, because I have bought myself two drawing books over the past two days.
The Back of the Napkin – Dan Roam
Keys to Drawing – Bert Dodson
I will be going through both of these books. I am currently reading The Back of the Napkin, and Keys to Drawing will be a sort of persistent thing throughout the end of this semester and through most off the next. Expect a bunch of sketches. Unfortunately, I am mostly using my 1.3MP iPhone camera instead of scanning or a real camera, so they may not look the best. Eventually, I may upgrade my iPhone or figure out where my regular 6MP camera is. Since I am currently traveling, iPhone it is.
I am also introducing a new Post Title Monicker: “My Little Black Sketchbook”, which is kind of self-explanatory. Every one of these posts will have something to do with my sketchbook.
