Seeking pre-workshop advice

Hi guys, I'm new to CGS and I've enrolled in the Absolute Beginners workshop which starts next January the 20th.

I'm really keen to get started before that, so I was wondering what exercises and practise I could do in preparation? I've seen a couple of drawing books by Loomis and Hamm, would they be a good start or should I be concentrating on just basic forms?

I know it might be easy to say 'just start drawing' but I want to be more focused I guess.

Any advice much appreciated.

many thanks

I love the Loomis books and I’d recommend studying them to warm up for the class. Especially ‘Fun With a Pencil’, ‘Successful Drawing’ and ‘Drawing Heads and Hands.’ Plenty of basic forms in those books that help build more complex drawings and to just get the stylus/pencils swingin’!

Thanks Gnome^!

Good tips, much appreciated, I'll have a look at those titles. Hopefully be able to study at least one of them in detail before class starts.

I've ordered 'Figure drawing for all it's worth' which should arrive in the next couple of days too...
