i just feel like scratching, cause when doing boxes i need to ghost every line and think about where the vp is at every line, so feels good to just scratch.
I understand the impulse. For what it's worth, I've not felt the need to 'scratch' as much in my personal drawing as I build better habits in the lessons.
But SOME scratching might have it's place, and I don't really believe that most artists do an initial sketch without petting some of their lines or using other "messy" techniques to find the right shape - the more experienced ones just seem to know how and when they can use those techniques to get the desired result.
Uh, that's neat to know, thank you.
Sometimes I just make quick scribbly lines all over the place, with no meaning, just for the joy of seeing the pencil making marks, like a little child.
It reminds me of "automatic drawing" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJYGFwGhHnA&ab_channel=Proko
