1 Find shape and structure
I start light and build up my drawing from boxes and wireframes. You can break hard shapes such as horns, antlers and tusks into planar views. The planar view helps find the perspective in shapes that might not be boxy. You can find the ‘planes’ and place them in space.
I like to sketch in structure first. I’m always building animals from the inside out, and wireframes and boxes help me see in perspective. Adding contour lines along the forms can help you see where the forms are turning in space.
