Critiques


That's a very nice drawing. Attention to detail on clothing and hair is particularly impressive. As I started to look closer for things...


It's a pretty great drawing, well done (: The hair, eyes and lips are especially very nicely drawn. I like her hair colour :3 The first...

BE YOURSELF

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

A few months ago I had this idea I wanted to try: to submit a finished or half-finished piece of artwork every day. I thought it would be a good way to make sure I'm progressing towards my dream of becoming a good artist. I didn't manage to do it but I got in tons of practice and became noticeably better since October.

A few weeks ago I've decided to take a break and reorient myself. I've discovered that trying to submit daily is not a good routine for me. It puts too much pressure for me to create something that's not embarrassing to post, something at least decent looking. But sometimes I would try and work on a piece for like 8 hours and produce nothing decent-looking at the end of the day. It wasn't a waste of time since I was still practicing and studying but during those days I felt like I've failed, since my primary goal was to submit something daily.

There was also a problem that I didn't allow myself to not submit when I was on a holiday, when I was spending time with family and stuff. I was under the impression that I'd still manage to produce something even during those days, but that quickly proved a pretty bad strategy for me. What happened in reality was that I became very stressed to produce something in advance so that I can get a day off with my family later, but trying to produce a drawing in advance while also creating something to submit in the moment proved too much.

Good artists can make a nice-looking piece in an hour, but I've found that at my current level I need around 6-8 hours to make a drawing that looks at least finished. I didn't know this when I set out to post something every day.

So, I've decided to change my routine. Instead of trying to submit daily, I will just have a schedule to work a certain number of hours per day and allow myself to have holidays. If I produce something at the end of those hours, great, but if I don't I'll still feel accomplished since I got the practice in. This also solves the problem that certain complex drawings might take longer than a day to make, something that was a big issue with my previous routine.

After failing my initial goal of submitting daily I needed a bit of time to clear my head and ready myself for a new commitment, one that will hopefully take me all the way towards my dream. I've done that and now I'm getting back into drawing.

Wish me luck Daisy :3
