A while back I entered animation class in an attempt to learn more about the art and actively engage in a class I felt genuinely drawn to. While I was in there I met a girl who was an impressionably talented artist. Her work was truly stellar. So stellar in fact that I requested a commission of of her to draw a character of mine. I offered to pay her. She agreed. However, her backlog was packed and although I had gotten to know her, she couldn't back out of previous engagements. Of course, I understood.
Then a thought crossed my brain: why the f*** am I asking another person to draw something that I created? Why not just work on my own drawing skills? Then I don't need to ask permission or request commissions from anybody. I just need to think of it. Then the only limit was my own skill.
So I worked ever since to improve my drawing skills. To elevate my game.
And it was one of the greatest decisions I ever made.
I look at some things I made in recent weeks and compare it to where I was a year ago. Back when I made Crestfallen. And the difference is night and day. My decisions to learn anatomy and the contours of the human body took my people drawing skills on a plane I could have only dreamed of making a few years ago.
It gives me hope for the future. I look at other artists and again find myself impressed by so many works. And I know that if I continue to push myself, I can enter a new league. And its only up from there.
Random late night f***ing though. I'm tired, but happy with the piece I'm making and just thought I'd share some egotistical thoughs. Night anyone who reads this!
