It's like learning to draw all over again.
I was sketching faces late this morning for the first time in years.
After fiddling around with proportions, placement, and expressions for a couple hours, I realized that I still suck at comic book drawing! Ughh!
Faces from my sketchpad!
I remember having that exact feeling several years ago when I'd practice and practice and not see much improvement.
That's why I put the dream on hold. The reality of not achieving my goals was too painful to bear.
After all, if you can't draw you ain't gettin' into comics!
But I'm determined to do it differently this time around.
Yes, I suck and have a looooong ways to go but I've got to push through those feelings of failure and inadequacy and keep drawing regardless.
If I'm being honest, I already crashed from the high I experienced during my very first post. But the main thing is that I keep moving forward whether I'm in a good mood or not!
I gave up too easily in the past and don't want history to repeat itself!
