Sketching ObservationsI’ve recently gotten into traditional after years of neglect. I’ve always been very digitally driven because of certain limitations. Some of that was warranted like postural issues and fatigue. The avoidance was mostly due to the abysmal results traditional brought me compared to digital which has mostly been due to anxiety and other emotional aspects.

2. You will improve. Regardless of how much you think you won’t. It won’t be immediate but you will see improvements within the month.
3. Plow through a sketchbook. Reference art you like if you have no ideas.
