    I have a question: I’m really digging the grid and tone/shadow stuff from the “Accurate Shapes” class and “Seeing Shadows” class. In my past I had heard of people using “grids” but blew it off. I didn’t understand what a difference it could make.
    Now I’m really into the grid thing. Is that a bad thing? I am doing the other classes and trying to learn the other techniques you teach but before I start any of the drawings now, i make a basic grid.
    This is because –
    1) It gives me a reference point/s for my “targets.”
    2) (Don’t laugh but) It makes me feel more confident that I can actually DO a drawing that is recognizable.
    Is it wrong for me to use the grid ongoing with the shading? I’ve not done representational drawing in a very long time and using a grid has made “representation drawing” seem a LOT less threatening (as well as a lot more approachable and attainable).
    Thank you for your time.
    Be well,
