Today is August 30th. And it was productive. Things to share:
1. This guy’s work was on the log-in screen. His work sings to me.
2. Listened to Sycra’s recent video in which he talked to Ben Middleston about passion and persistence in drawing and painting. Until about last week I was feeling the same Ben was feeling about his arting regiment: What you “should" do versus what you want to do with art, as well as the issue with viewing inspiring art online, and the idea of getting out of your comfort zone.
I’ve been getting bored lately, so I’ve been making to-do lists of things I should do, and ultimately don’t get anything done. But now that I have a clear idea of what I want to do, what I want to have finished, I feel really focused. I’m enjoying work.
ALSO, if you’re attempting to draw a character in an action pose, do yourself a favor and mimic the action early during the development. Watch yourself in a mirror, even.
Don’t be a loser like me and realize a critical anatomy flaw near the end of painting. -___-‘
