I Want To Draw Again

i've been so depressed that i haven't touched a pencil in an incredibly long time. I never knew how to sketch or doodle i just somehow managed to do it whenever inspiration hit.i'm trying to get back into it but i have no idea what to creativeness has completely left me.i think it's mainly that i can't draw for myself lately but i could work on something if someone asked since it gives me purpose.any ideas on how to get into it again?

Buy a beautiful sketch book and some quality pencils. I love 2B and 4B.

Next think, what can I sketch? are you good with faces, hands, horses? Scour the internet for other peoples sketches, pick one. For example, if you want a face, take one that is at the angle you can manage. Don't copy it but take inspiration from the lines, the shading.

Create your own work, once you have the basic shape from the image you have chosen fill in the rest from your heart.

Good luck. I know you can do it. xx
