Objects & creatures

  1. Draw an object or creature you feel confident you can draw.
  2. Now draw an object or creature you do not think you can draw well. On the Internet, find photographs of this object or creature. Choose one of these photographs and copy it with your non-dominant hand, or without looking at the page and without lifting your pen.
  3. Try to identify the features that make that object or creature recognisable. Without looking at any photos, draw it again several times. In each version, try to exaggerate a different feature you identified as important. Again, you might like to try drawing with your non-dominant hand or without looking at the page.
  4. Which of your drawings do you like best? Why? You may find that your favourite isn’t necessarily the most realistic drawing.
