It is important to practice drawing which is the basis of all 2-D art. No matter how colorful or abstract the artist must have the most basic drawing skills. I attend open studios where we share the expense of a model. I sketch people in restaurants and bars. I even sketch the talking heads on television. I not that good at it but the more I practice the better chance I have of improving.
