There's an exercise I heard of somewhere where you just scribble some random shapes, and then make something out of it. These are my squiggle people... I close my eyes, scribble, then make sense of it. I'm finding it surprisingly enjoyable.
I was following a youtube video on how to draw Manga eyes, and 4 year old scout wanted to help me with the picture. So I did the eyes, nose, mouth, and she did the head and "body".
