Today’s drawing was all about trusting myself and just going for it.
The one thing I’ve noticed about my latest drawings is that when I trust my abilities and don’t try and measure every thing to death I come out with a more natural drawing full of energy. The others with lots of measuring and double checking against the photo in Photoshop results in a stiff drawing with not much life. Trusting myself and just going for it doesn’t produce a super accurate drawing but I’m certain it’s the best path to take for excellence.
What went well?
I trusted myself and came out with one of the better drawings in this series so far.
What didn’t go so well?
Again… More time. I spent almost two hours on this drawing alone.
What did I learn?
To instill more structure into my drawings I need to give clear indications when planes change direction through higher contrast in values as well as strokes that better describe the planes.
