if you like to draw but have a hard time developing ideas, here's a quick and easy way to help you with pretty much anything you want to create. all you need is a pencil and some tracing paper and you are set. you can also use this method to draw from photo reference, or for certain parts you are having difficulties in a big piece you are working on. I'm going to use a face I did using this method as an example. first you take some regular paper and and keep drawing whatever you want to draw until you come up with a good idea, be it a pose or a scene or whatever. just draw till you find something you kinda like that you would like to see more rendered. once you find something, take out the tracing paper, and roughtly sculpt with your pencil what you want to do. just worry loosly about proportions just put everything there after you did that, you take a fresh piece of tracing paper and lay it on top of the first one then you start drawing over that. you can fix proportion errors this way. still keep it rough but a little tighter in terms of lighting. don't do much detail. repeat the process, place another piece of tracing paper on top of your second drawing, and keep refining it. slowly working in the detail and lighting keep doing this until you feel you are complete. I stopped at five, but there are always things I can play around with. In the end it's your choice how far you want to go. and if you are one of those digital people, you can do this same exact thing on the computer with the layers and your layer opacity happy drawing. and keep at it! UPDATE: if you are into character design and still sorta don't get it, I did a character development study to show you again start drawing poses on scrap paper till you find one you like 1) draw the pose loosely. worry about basic shapes and basic proportions 2) start tightening things up a little, worry about the anatomy and tighten the first drawing. you can see that I didn't like the arm dangling on the first one so I changed it. 3) now start adding smaller details like roughly do the eyes and face and start putting clothes on the figure 4) here's my final piece. You may notice that the line quality is lighter. That's because I did the first three drawing with graphite pencil, and this last one with mechanical pencil so I can be tight and accurate. Also notice the strokes I used for the boots and miniskirt. They follow the form, which helps the viewer understand the form underneath the clothes (that and it's another level of depth you can achieve with your art) happy drawing.
