    Graver/chisel forming with minimal tools

    I wholeheartedly agree!! As being one of few to go to art school who "couldn't draw" I'll offer some advice on the subject that my professor told me. "Draw what you SEE...not what you know." The trick to keep your eyes moving between your subject and media as much as possible. Don't get stuck looking only at your paper as you draw. When the subject lies in the minds eye this can get more challenging however.... but it gets easier with practice!! Just my 2ยข for whatever it's worth Bill
