I spent a very long time not drawing... A very long time... XD With so many life events happening, it's been difficult keeping on top of a task that I think I'm terrible at. Thing is, I think looking at my past drawings that I have posted to DA- I didn't do as badly as I thought initially. Now I am starting pretty much from scratch. I haven't drawn in a while and so my hand eye coordination isn't as good as it used to be.
I'm starting out with drawings that are more of a minimalist style than what I've drawn before. (Not that I can call those past drawings elaborate...) >.>
I really do need to keep up with my hobbies and devote more time to each one... The hardest part of drawing is giving enough time to develop each skill (at least for me). I have plenty of time on the weekends and after classes. I just need to use my time constructively.
I keep thinking to myself how I could have been close to mastery level by now, had I only drawn everyday and not have so many problems in art school...
I've learned self-study at my own pace is better for me than having one teacher for a class of 20 or more. I need one on one time if I ever go back to formal lessons, that's the only way that would ever work.
I may fall off the metaphorical horse again, but hopefully I'll be quicker to get back on if that time comes again.
