Look at the above two pictures. Do you think they are drawn by primary school kids? Actually they were drawn by me! All these are part of my homework whereby I have to do blind contour drawing (that is, drawing without lifting the pencil off the paper or looking at what I had drawn). Sounds silly? Well that's a common technique used to train one to eye to hand co-ordination as well as to force oneself to draw what he/ she really see and not what he/ she assume to have seen. The pictures on the left are real blind contour drawings, while those to their right, well I don't know what to call them, are drawing using the same technique but looking at paper is allowed.
I've only finished 4 pictures, and there are still 4 more to go. That is excluding another 8 more for another drawing module which I had to do the same thing! I don't think I can carry on drawing, at least not before afternoon as my right wrist is sore now; this is much more tiring than acting "The Teacher, The Thief" (三家福) or "Matchmake in the Cabinet" (柜中缘) combined!
