How to Approach Blind Contour Drawing

Don't worry if your drawings look weird. The point of the exercise is not to get accurate pictures, but rather to train your eye to look for the the contours and details. Concentrate on tracing your eye across the edges of what you're looking at. Your pencil movements should mirror your eye movements.
