More Thoughts on Drawing
Shading deals with how form shows under light. Lines deals with how the form is structurally composed. When doing both out of one's head, they can be easily thought as flat impressions instead spatial presences. It is in when one forces himself to depict angles involving overlapping forms with only lines, that he forces himself to be in direct contact with the form that sits in space. Hence the way in which one draws doesn't just define the looks, but also his thinking/feeling/learning process. All ways of drawings are good, but to me the best one currently is one which that when you do it, it's not your habitual hand/thinking that's doing the drawing, but rather yourself - you in the most direct way possible, doing the drawing.
