While studying figure drawing my instructor would have us go to the nearby mall and draw people. Each time we had a challenge to draw people at the food court, draw people walking, draw people on the first floor (fore shortening was the toughest), draw people on the escalators, etc. This is one of the best ways to practice and get some pencil mileage and study figure drawing.
I could say I’ve been busy which is partly true after getting a second job but, for the most part I have been lazy. And, looking at the time I could be spending on doing more creative things, I end up chosing something unproductive and unrewarding. Then I go into a cycle of regret and loathing that I question myself if I even have the passion to create anymore or if I was just looking for that steady job to pay my filthy habits. There are many books that have been read partially or have been unread, many drawings and sketchings that haven’t been finished, and many ideas that haven’t seen the light of day on paper. Perhaps all creative people go through this cycle of aspiration and laziness.
referencing from a photo, i was trying to do mainly hatching in one direction to somehow shape the form of her head – especially in her hair.
trying out the red pen thing. all my pens suck. i was working on this and the ink kept leaving wet spots so i would start blotching all over this. i now have dried red ink on the underside of my hand opposite of my thumb. had to cut it short.
looking like a good thing that i stopped! didn’t want to over-work this.
