Hi everyone! This week, I present to you a giraffe skull, It´s one of those weird skulls that always looks pissed off. I went through a bunch of references trying to find one with softer lines; that was pointless, they are all pissed off. I think it is some kind of natural rule about animal skulls: the cuter the animal, the angrier the skull. But i digress...

Tip of the day:
Place the palm of your hand inside of the curve & use it as a pivot point for increased line precision
If you want to pull nice crisp line in one shot, you should always try to lay the palm of your hand inside the curve you are drawing, not on the outside. Your palm will then act as a pivot point and you will have proper support all along the line you are pulling.
One simpler way to explain this: always pull curves toward you, never push them away. Turn your paper or change the position of your body if you see you are not inside the curve you are about to draw.
As you can see on the right side, my hand is at the exterior of the curve and I am starting to lack support & precision at the end of the line.
