I spent nine years doing shooting boards for TV commercials, and it was hammered into me to always draw bland, generic characters, so that the client wouldn't focus on any particular type. And it's a hard habit to break. Everything nondescript and bashed out quickly can pay the bills, but it also can be soul crushing as an artist!

Hoping I can improve my hair drawing. Nashville is a big hair show.
Here is something I have rarely ever done: drawing from photos! And I think my work suffers because I've hardly done it all these years. I'm vowing to do a lot more of this. Right away I was drawing new shapes and lines I'd never drawn before. I think I'm getting less generic characters already.
National Geographic Magazine is great for a variety of people from all over the World. Trying to pay more attention to different head shapes.
