I just found a sketchbook filled 2/3 of the way, with the most embarrasing sketches ever. I couldn’t believe that it was from just last year… It makes me cringe but it also makes me happy I’ve improved. I hadn’t realised how terrible I was, I thought my current level was pretty bad. So, hoorah.
I could never draw non-realistic things, so last year was when I really pushed to try. Like, drawing people and creatures, etc. I could only copy things directly from life or photograph (or screenshot) and I felt like I was decent at it, but it started to feel unoriginal.
I can’t believe I survived filling that much of a sketchbook, even though it was bad? And I knew it was bad, I can see it in the notes I wrote next to things. But somehow, I enjoyed it. And a few of those drawings I was a little proud of.
[If you want to picture it, I had basically -never ever- attempted to draw people from imagination before. Imagine… manga/comic drawings of a 12 year old? I applaud myself for pulling through.]
I wish I could be that reckless in drawing without caring that it’s not good, because this year I’ve had so much trouble recently in drawing for the sake of drawing. Maybe if I fill another sketchbook again I’ll take that next big step in improvement. And I want to start drawing some realistic things again as well.
I think I might start posting some more art soon, so bear with me. Haha.
