28. start simple, add detail

Keep it simple by Proko

Starting simple applies to every art form.

Identifying big shapes in drawing, big plot points and themes in writing, clear characters in animation, key physics attributes in puzzle-making.

It’s always tempting to add detail too early. But like they said in the tiktok linked above, it’s important to start simple so you can move things around. doing everything at once results in unfixed mistakes and a worse drawing.
