2 Draw, draw, draw!

My num­ber one tip for my stu­dents is to make a mark on pa­per. This may seem ob­vi­ous, but many be­lieve they need in­spi­ra­tion to be­gin draw­ing. Wait­ing for in­spi­ra­tion is one of the great art myths. Draw first and in­spi­ra­tion will find you. Here’s one of many sketches scrib­bled down for a ma­jor fan­tasy paint­ing. From this small seed a large 48x36-inch oil paint­ing will sprout! With such a com­mit­ment ahead it’s no big deal to draw lots of lit­tle comps to find the best idea. It’s the nicest part of the job.
