So... I'm going through self-teaching to learn drawing and animation. On the drawing side of things I'm going through Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. So far I have seen improvement, but I've discovered a true dislike for contour drawing. I was wondering if anyone else has had a tough time with contour drawing. I'm still doing it, but I find it difficult to make myself do it, which means my progress has gotten slower. Mostly, because I keep having to do the exercises over and over again. The reason is because usually around 13 minutes of contour drawing I stop, and I need to do at least 20 minutes of it. I finally got down to 30 and a little under 30, but the last pure contour drawing was for an hour. I did it for 20 minutes and then stopped.
Anyone ever had problems with contour drawing and any advice to get over this hump? So far I just keep doing it and I don't move on to the next section until I've completed it.
