FORCE-Draw Form or Shape First?

This preview discusses the chicken and egg question on what a draftsperson should tackle first, the concept of form or shape?  In the writing of my first FORCE book, Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators, this question was by far the most difficult to answer.  Years later, I think I made the right choice in asking and answering that question once more.

This is helpful advice for sure, Mike.

Sometimes when I am struggling with character designs, as an exercise I will draw a bunch of shapes and try to make them into characters, just to break out of a rut.
