The 8 Minute Drawing Challenge
8 MINUTE TIMER HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsrQ6Iynx4w
The 8 Minute Drawing Challenge goes like this:
Pick a subject, could be anything. Like a dog, or a truck, or a helicopter, or a self portrait, or a tree house.
Grab a sheet of paper and divide it into 6 even sections.
Click play on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsrQ6Iynx4w
and when the timer starts you have 4 minutes to draw your subject in one of the sections.
When it beeps again you start another drawing in the second section, but this time you only have 2 minutes to draw it.
Then do it in 1 minute. Then 30 seconds. Then 15 seconds. And finally 5 seconds.
Now compare your drawings.
It’s a great exercise for getting faster and better at drawing. A side benefit is that it lays a foundation for you to find your individual style.
