AnyBody Can Draw (DDC - Day 3)

Day 2 of the Daily Doodle Challenge, I had mentioned about changing the way one goes about life and that if you continue to take familiar paths, you will end up at familiar places. 

It is such a great coincidence that day 3's blog post is an apt continuation to that point. I had no clue until evening as to what would be my doodle for the day. I was just going through some youtube videos about doodles and drawing when I ended up watching Graham Shaw's youtube video about "Why people believe they can't draw - and how to prove they can | Graham Shaw | TedxHull". Today's doodle is something I learnt from this youtube video. I recommend watching this video and try for yourself. It is truly inspiring.

This video is not just about making people realize that anybody can draw but also about how we tend to limit ourselves due to false beliefs. In order to do any task which seems unfamiliar or difficult, the willingness to learn and try something different is more important than having some innate ability. Some skills like drawing this doodle are surprisingly easy to learn. It was just a matter of few minutes following the instructor in the youtube video and try out these cartoon figures. Also note that I used my non-writing hand (left hand) to draw them. Something I had mentioned in Day 1 of Daily Doodle Challenge.

There may be some other tasks that you must have dreamed of doing in your life but chose to give up just because you thought it is too late to try or it was hard to do. Here is the evidence to prove that there will be some simple techniques to try and do the seemingly difficult task. So, why not give it a shot?
