Sketch – Blue Girl
2 hour sketch (okay, plus an hour of minor tweaking and trying to decide what colour background to use…)
I’m at work most of my days, Â so my personal challenge is to be able to draw and not take up all of my evening’s free time. Between making myself delicious dinners, Â marathoning Star Trek:DS9 and hunting Pokemon, Â I have a lot going on >_>. Â So the deal is I draw, Â and I stop drawing at about the 2 hour mark, and be in bed before midnight.
Though I’m not where I want to be, Â I do find myself getting better and faster at this. Â I do believe in inherent talent, Â but I also know that without practising, Â nurturing and, Â most importantly, learning more, Â talent is only going to take you so far.
Being able to draw has become an important part of my life lately. Â I regret taking my talent for granted over the years and not spending more time to practice and really look at stuff. Â I struggle with every drawing and I’m never 100% happy with any piece. Â It’s as it should be. Â I tell myself that it’s like getting back in shape. Â It needs to be worked on regularly for you to see an improvement. Â I hope I’m moving in the right direction.
