Let's Draw!

In my endless collection of magazines and books to help me get better at art, I picked up a book called "Fantasy Genesis Characters: A creativity game for drawing original people and creatures" (Chuck Lukacs).

It's a really cool book that covers not only tips and basics for drawings but challenges the readers to draw things they wouldn't think to draw/ are difficult to draw.

While I think you guys should totally get this book if you're into art, I wanted to post the challenges, dice roll feature lists here for you guys to play with.
