In all my life, this might be my favorite thing I’ve ever drawn — not because it’s oh-so-great that I won’t be revisiting it later in a second draft.
Because I’ll definitely be doing that.
The reason I love this picture is for all the things I learned while drawing it. I won’t lecture you on what that is because what I need to learn and what you need to learn may be different. And the only way to learn and improve is to do the thing and keep doing it.
Just like writing, art takes the time that it takes and there often aren’t shortcuts, just better tools and techniques. And I currently have terrible tools (for what I need) and rudimentary techniques.
Let’s see how much of that changes in the next year, shall we?
If you have any recommendations, feel free to share!
