Drawing is a fundamental skill used across artistic disciplines. Whether you are interested in realistic depiction, comics/graphic novels, using perspective to create depth or just like to doodle- developing a strong foundation in drawing is always a good idea. Also it's lots of fun and can be practiced anywhere- all you need is some paper and a pencil or pen!
