Just a little reminder to myself that no matter what you may be striving to portray, it never stops being about form. You really can create a world of difference by pushing and pulling the shapes that make up a "character" (be it an apple, an arm, a teddy bear, or a snow cactus...betcha never seen one of those, Earthling!) The best part is that anyone can do it!! You really don't have to be good at drawing to play with shape, explore form, and experiment with lines on a piece of paper...you just may surprise yourself!! Have fun!!!
