Drawin' habits

:iconnailclippins:

Yo. I recently noticed i'll squint a whole lot while drawing.

This is not because I don't see, it's just an unconscious thing i do.
My reasoning is that it lets me focus less on details and more on the whole picture, as it actually makes it harder to see things.

I also often make the facial expressions I am drawing, which might have obvious benefits.

Share your unconscious drawing habits, and how you think they might help/ hinder you!

Naw, man, hunchbacks talk to gargoyle statues. I do not have the statues required to maintain a respectable hunchback status

I blur my vision a lot. Like starting to but not quite crossing your eyes, y'know? If whatever I'm working on is in my lap, I also have a tendency to slowly lean over so I eventually end up nearly curled in a ball and giving it the Kubrick stare. I'm trying to break that one before it breaks my back.

Don't stop, it's good for your posture. People like hunchbacks better.

My facial expressions used to make the models laugh and drop their pose back when I was in school.

Some of our models make US laugh and drop our drawing utensils.
