Ooo look. A subtitle. How quaint.
Hey, activity! Keep sketching!
Hi Mark! That's my game plan. Thanks for the encouraging words. :)
I've tried to draw on numerous occasions, but can never maintain the energy required to get past the "man I suck" stage.
I totally know how you feel. More days than not, I feel like I'm stuck fast in the "man I suck" stage. In the past, I would draw in spurts, sketching over a few days, get discouraged and drop the pencil for months and months. This is the first time I've decided I'm going to learn to draw no matter what. I set a tangible goal to draw every day- minimum of 30 mins. Period. It's helped my motivation tremendously to set that goal. Even if I "fail" with an ugly sketch, I can succeed in my goal merely by putting the pencil on the paper. It's made a huge difference for me.Tomorrow is a new day and there will be a new sheet of paper. I'm ok with failure each day knowing that because of what I'm doing today, there is a strong possibility that tomorrow I'll fail a teeny bit less.
